About the German Christmas Markets Rhine River Cruise
German Christmas Markets Rhine River Cruise departs Hull Sunday 17th December 2017 (boarding opens at 16:00, check in closes at 19:00)
Your first night on board the P&O ferry from Hull to Rotterdam includes an outside cabin with sea views, dinner and breakfast on board so you can relax and enjoy the start of your trip.
The following morning sees the ferry arrive into Rotterdam where coaches are waiting to whisk you to Valkenburg in the Dutch province of Limburg. A visit to the picturesque Christmas market is included which is located in the dramatic setting of underground quarries and caves! The next stop is Cologne where you’ll board the luxurious river cruise ship, Serenade. There’s free time to explore Cologne’s Christmas markets; make sure you sample some Glühwein or the local beer, Kölsch. In the evening you’ll be officially welcomed on board the Serenade by the Captain before savouring dinner in the elegant and relaxed dining room. There’s live music and a late night disco to enjoy before you retire to your en-suite River View Cabin.
Next morning you’ll find yourself in the historic city of Koblenz where you’ve got all day to explore this beautiful German city. Maybe you could visit the Elector’s Palace or the Deutches Eck (German Corner), where the Rhine meets the Moselle. Lunch is served on-board ship and there’s a fun quiz and live music as well if you just want to relax. Dress to impress for the Christmas Party Gala Dinner this evening while the Serenade cruises back up the Rhine towards Düsseldorf. Party the night away with evening entertainment including a Game Show Marathon and live music and disco ‘til late.
Serenade arrives in Düsseldorf the next morning where, after breakfast, you’ve got the whole day to explore the capital city of North Rhine-Westphalia. The fashion and music capital of Germany, Düsseldorf is a modern, bustling city with lots of museums and attractions. Take a trip to the observation deck of the Rheinturm, 170 metres above the city, for panoramic views or a meal in the revolving restaurant. Lunch is served on board the Serenade followed by an afternoon music quiz and bingo followed by live music in the lounge before dinner. The ship will cruise downriver to Cologne overnight. Next day, it’s time to bid auf wiedersehn to Germany as coaches depart for Rotterdam, stopping at the Dutch town on Delft on the way. This historic town is famous for its Delft Blue pottery and its association with the royal House of Orange-Nassau.
Your return cruise with P&O North Sea Ferries includes an evening meal and on-board entertainment. Enjoy a hearty breakfast in the morning before disembarking at Hull.
