Vrolijk Kerstfeest, or Merry Christmas!

Follow the trail of twinkling lights and the enticing aroma of gingerbread...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… so kickstart your festive celebrations with visits to the traditional Christmas markets of Belgium. On your first day at sea, why not get stuck into a Christmas crafts workshop? It’s the perfect opportunity to get to know your fellow cruisers as you keep your fingers busy and unleash your creative side. Cruise up the River Scheldt to arrive at Europe’s second largest port city, considered the world’s “leading diamond city” and today renowned for its fashion industry. Antwerp’s historical city centre comes to life in December when the streets are lined with traditional wooden huts selling authentic gifts and decorations. As the sound of Christmas music fills the air, let the sweet smell of cinnamon guide you through market squares packed with stalls as you hunt for souvenirs and stocking fillers – it’s a festive shopper’s delight! Keep the Christmas spirit alive in Zeebrugge with an included transfer to UNESCO-listed Bruges, one of Europe’s best-preserved cities where more festivity awaits you. As the cold air nips at your finger tips, criss-cross winding lanes and romantic canals, soaking up the enchanting atmosphere of this fairy tale city. Bruges is a chocolate-lover’s paradise, so perhaps indulge in an authentic Belgian hot chocolate or glühwein, guaranteed to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy.
