Rhine Christmas Market Cruise

This welcoming River Cruise Ship is perfect from which to enjoy your cruise. The ship has a spacious lounge, bar area, restaurant and sun deck. There are just 2 decks with a small lift to both passenger decks and stair lift to the sun deck. All cabins are outward facing and comfortably equipped with lower twin beds and private facilities.
