Rhine Holiday Markets (2017) : S.S. Antoinette

8 Days From Cologne To Basel


A joyful wintertime journey showcasing centuries-old holiday traditions.

Discover the origins of our most beloved Christmas traditions as you explore charming towns in Switzerland, France and Germany. On this luxurious, all-inclusive Rhine River cruise, you'll sip warm mulled wine as you browse for handcrafted ornaments and gifts in festive Christmas Markets, stopping to admire brilliantly lighted trees and shop windows filled with tasty confections. Search for old-world toys and treasures in the festive wooden stalls clustered around Cologne's magnificent cathedral, and marvel at the baroque town hall of Koblenz, transformed into a giant Advent calendar. Savor tantalizing once-a-year treats with Uniworld's "Taste of Christmas" program, including freshly baked gingerbread and crepes topped with cinnamon. Revel in the brightly painted carousels, cobblestone squares illuminated by twinkling lights, life-sized Nativity scenes, and soul-stirring choir music. It's all yours to enjoy as you cruise past castle-lined hillsides and visit charming towns decked in holiday finery.
