Theme River Cruises
Theme River Cruises are increasingly popular, with more lines offering a host of diverse sailings that revolve around a single theme. Often, these are based around Europe’s fabled Christmas Markets, with special themed holiday cruises offered between November 25 and December 24. Other themes can include wine, beer, cycling, and even family-friendly sailings or voyages that revolve around topical subjects like World War I & II and Jewish Heritage. Some theme river cruises can be very specifically-themed; in the past few years, there have been voyages based around big band jazz, gluten-free eating, knitting, and more.
