About this Cruise

As the festive season begins, start your celebrations in style with discoveries of four European cities that really come to life at the ‘most wonderful time of the year’. Your visit to Hamburg is sure to be a highlight; German cities are renowned for their festivities and you’ll get to experience why. Traditional Christmas markets, packed with fairy-light adorned huts selling gifts, trinkets, tasty gingerbread and warming spiced wine await you. See sights such as St Nikolai Church and the Chilehaus, and enjoy a winter stroll along the banks of the River Elbe too, perhaps.

There are also Christmas-time charms to uncover in Belgian, Swedish and Danish cities. Balmoral will call at Zeebrugge for tours to the UNESCO-listed Bruges, where you’ll find highlights such as the 13th century Belfry, traditional chocolate shops and markets stalls amongst the decorated streets, and in Sweden, a later stay in Gothenburg provides a chance to see the Liseberg and Haga festive markets illuminated after dark. Your visit to Copenhagen, Denmark’s delightful capital, will be one to remember; Tivoli Gardens is a ‘must-visit’ at this time the year, with its displays of light and decoration, and stalls offering everything from Nordic handicrafts to local delicacies.

About Your Ship
Balmoral
Carrying up to 1,350 guests is small enough to navigate narrow waterways such as Kiel Canal and bring inspirational sights and experiences closer to you.

Like the rest of the fleet, Balmoral retains a warm, welcoming atmosphere and features comfortable accommodation and lounges, stylish restaurants and plenty of open-deck space.
