“There’s no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than by visiting the charming and traditional European Christmas markets,” says Stéphanie Bishop, managing director for Avalon Waterways Canadian office. “You’ll be immersed in traditions dating back centuries – so completely different from our crowded malls at that time of year.” The cruises have proven so popular, she adds, that Avalon has tripled its number of Festive-themed cruises for 2018. The cruises start as early as Nov. 20, and you’ll be home well in time for Christmas.”

Clients booking a 2018 river cruise with Avalon Waterways can take advantage of $299 roundtrip airfare to Europe from an array of Canadian cities, or save up to $2,400 per couple when booking early.
