December River Cruises - 2019, 2020 & 2021

As December arrives, our thoughts inevitably turn to Christmas and, naturally, this is the perfect month in which to explore the world's waterways. We have a fantastic selection of 2019, 2020 and 2021 river cruises in December, visiing Christmas markets, festivities and all-around wintery fun during a sailing. Take a look at our best December river cruises and see why this festive period is perfect for visiting the banks of the Danube, Rhine and more.

Where can you sail?

Why not head to Northern Europe and visit some of the continent’s most stunning Christmas Markets? Cities such as Cologne, Nuremberg, Budapest and Strasbourg feature some of the world's best Christmas Markets and a river cruise is the ideal way to visit them.

December is also the ideal time of year to escape the cold weather and head east to the exotic waterways of China, Vietnam, Myanmar or Cambodia, where the riverbanks of these regions are hot, sunny and humid - the perfect place to escape the winter blues back home! Take a look at river cruises in December for the Mekong, Irrawaddy or Yangtze for a taste of tropical temperatures.
