Deck the Halls with Great Rail Journeys' Christmas market river cruises

The launch comes after a 320% booking spike for 2021/22 getaways. 

With many people's festive plans postponed last year, Great Rail Journeys has announced its new Christmas Markets of the Rhine tour, a European river cruise encapsulating some of the continent's season highlights, including Germany's renowned Christmas markets.

The news follows a spike in holiday bookings since the roadmap announcement in February. Great Rail Journeys has seen a 320% booking uplift compared to the same period in 2019, and to meet this rise in demand, the new itinerary will offer a no-fly adventure across many of the Rhine's marvels. 

Aboard the MS Amadeus Silver II, a five-star floating hotel, the voyage sails through Cologne, Rüdesheim, Koblenz, Bonn, with plenty of time to explore the Christmas markets at every stop along the way. The four-night cruise, departing from St Pancras, starts from £825 per person. 

Julian Appleyard, commercial director at Great Rail Journeys, commented: “It is fantastic to see that the appetite for travel is still there with such a boost in bookings from our customers. We are ecstatic  that we can meet this demand with a new tour for our customers and a series of incredible bucket list trips for those who are eager to get back out exploring.”

All bookings with the escorted rail tour provider are protected with the flexible booking offer, enabling guests to transfer their holiday dates for free should plans change.
