Highlights

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.
