Merlijn will be dressed up for Christmas and she will sail a route no other large vessels can go.
Celebrate Christmas the old way, with a magical cruise along the German Cristmas markets.
Spend your mornings in the lounge, stuffed with Christmas decorations and flooded with daylight from the roof windows. Use the afternoon/evenings to shop your Christmas presents for this year on the German Christmas markets and visit old towns. Enjoy lunches and dinners onboard and taste the local cuisine while eating out.
When you want an afternoon brake from Christmas, we included an excursion to an old steel factory that changed into a beautiful park.
From 3:30 PM, you are welcome aboard your fully equipped cruise ship Merlijn, the crew will help you to carry your luggage onboard and guide you to your room. Around 5 PM your captain & host will offer you a welcome drink and introduce the crew. Also they will inform you about the cruise, the ship and safety. Afterwards you can relax and discover the ship. Later on diner will be served onboard. In the evening you can stroll over several Christmas markets in ‘der Altstadt’. Well known is the market on the ‘Heinrich-Heine-platz’, called ‘Engelchen-markt’ (angels-market) during this time of the year. To warm yourself up, you can drink a traditional ‘gluhwein’ (hot wine) or visit the longest bar in the world! We will stay in Düsseldorf overnight.
