AVALON WATERWAYS HAS launched a five-night Christmas river cruise to spend the festive season sailing along the River Danube from Frankfurt to Nuremberg before spending two nights in Prague to visit the city’s Christmas markets.

Priced from £875 per person with a UK departure on December 22 from Heathrow, the eight-day ‘Christmas in the Heart of Germany’ break will sail on the company’s latest fleet addition, Avalon Luminary. The cruise offers a range of guided city sightseeing in Miltenberg, Wurzberg, Bamberg and Nuremberg as well as visits to the Bishop’s Residenz at Wurzburg and medieval Rothenburg. A traditional baking demonstration and sampling some German beers are also included. The price includes flights from Heathrow; five nights’ full board cruise with complimentary regional wines, beers and soft drinks served with dinner; a five-course Christmas dinner; guided sightseeing; two nights’ breakfast accommodation at the Hilton in Prague; and private door-to-door home pick-up service within a 75-mile radius of the chosen airport.  Extra nights are available in Frankfurt from £99 per person and in Prague from £71 per person per night based on a twin room.
