Planning a trip to the German Christmas markets this festive season? Why not indulge yourself with a luxury 5-day Rhine cruise and explore the best of the markets in style!

Visit charming towns and vibrant cities along the Rhine including Cologne, Rüdesheim and Cochem and experience the sights, smells and traditions of Germany’s world renowned Christmas Markets. Though given the unparalelled levels of service, food, leisure facilities and entertainment on board ship, it will be hard to tear yourself away!

As soon as you step on board the Premicon Queen and view the gallery staircase and glass dome ceiling in the entry area, you know you have found a special place to spend your vacation.

Carrying just 102 passengers and 58 attentive crew members, the Premicon Queen set new standards of exclusivity on the River Rhine when she was launched in 2008. With 45 square metres (484 square feet) per passenger, the ship has more space than any other riverboat in the world!

From the steamship salon and panoramic lounge to the extensive wind-protected deck, the public areas are comfortably and elegantly furnished and are the perfect places to relax and admire the stunning scenery of the Rhine valley. Why not try the whirlpool or unwind in the Viennese cafe?

At meal time you are in for a treat, with internationally acclaimed chefs on hand to serve you throughout the day. A la carte breakfast, lunch and 5-course dinner are served to your reserved table in the glass-enclosed gourmet restaurant, with room service available 24 hours per day. As evening falls, you can choose from a range of outstanding entertainment in the Theatron, including live orchestras, shows and comedies, or relax to piano music in the cocktail bar.

You have a choice of three suite categories over two decks (View Map below), all offering superb standards of comfort. Opt for a tastefully decorated Junior Suite or upgrade to a Deluxe Suite and enjoy the views through the panorama doors from your diagonally-positioned bed! The Queen Suite is a truly luxurious cabin and features on-demand butler service. Every suite is equipped with radio, flatscreen TV, mini bar, telephone and wireless internet.

This exciting seasonal itinerary aboard the Premicon Queen takes you firstly to idyllic Cochem, where you will find festive stalls offering beautiful gifts and sweet treats.
