Le Havre, France

Once you've set sail from sunny Southampton, you'll kick off your European adventure with a day spent venturing around Le Havre in France, a major port in Normandy renowned for maritime traditions. During your afternoon, we'd recommend heading to the popular landmarks including St Joseph's Church, the Hanging Gardens and the Abbey Museum Graville!

Looking for some festive fun? Be sure to check out the Le Havre Christmas markets at City Hall. Featuring a big ferris wheel, plenty of food and drink stands, and stalls selling plenty of Yuletide-themed gifts, there truly is no better place to get that warm and fuzzy feeling!

Zeebrugge, Belgium

The following day, you'll dock into the port (and seaside resort) of Zeebrugge in Belgium - from here, you'll be able to take a short journey into Bruges. Make a beeline for the historic Market, with its medieval buildings giving the area a magical fairy-tale feeling. You’ll also find the iconic Belfry of Bruges which towers above the market square at 83 metres in height. Other must-sees include the Basilica of the Holy Blood, and Michelangelo’s only sculpture, ‘Madonna with Child’.

When in the city, be sure to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year at the famous Bruges Christmas market! Taking place from 20th November 2021 until 3rd January 2022, the city is all set to turn into the ultimate winter wonderland with its horse-drawn carriage rides, a glittering ice rink, and iconic Grote Markt dotted with plenty of wooden chalets. You won't want to miss it!

IJmuiden, The Netherlands

You'll arrive in IJmuiden in the Netherlands the next day, a small port city from which you'll be able to travel into Amsterdam! When here, be sure to head to Museumplein to soak up some culture, considered the art lover’s utopia. Here you can visit the Van Gogh museum and numerous open-air exhibitions. Southbound, you’ll find the bohemian neighbourhood of De Pijp, a vibrant district, brimming with street markets, stalls and trendy cafes.

Have you heard the news? It won't be long until Santa Claus is coming to town, so be sure to head into Amsterdam's during the festive period! Featuring a large skating rink at Museumplein, plenty of food and drink stands at Leidseplein and a 20-foot Christmas tree on display at Dam Square, there's no place quite like it!

Hamburg, Germany

After a fun-filled day at sea, your final port of call will be the vibrant port city of Hamburg in Germany. Dotted with hundreds of canals and offering plenty of green parkland spaces, you certainly won't be short of a scenic view over here! We'd recommend a visit to the Hamburger Kunsthalle museum, St. Michael's Church or taking a guided tour around the Townhall.

If you can squeeze in a bit of festive fun during your little stay in the city, we'd recommend hitting up the Fleetweihnachtsmarkt - otherwise known as Hamburg's Christmas market! Expect to wander around plenty of food and drink stands serving mugs of hot chocolate and plates of Bratwurst sausages, before giving the man himself a greeting at the iconic Santa's grotto!

MSC Magnifica

Get ready for the holiday of a lifetime! Once you touch down in Southampton, you’ll embark upon a rejuvenating cruise across the very best of Europe. The MSC Magnifica is sure to leave you breathless, with a seemingly limitless supply of entertainment, activities and delicious food and drink. Catch a jaw-dropping show at the Royal Theatre, place your bets at the Atlantic City casino, let your little ones' imagination run wild at the Underwater World Children Playroom or hit a strike at the bowling alley. Your taste buds are set to go on a journey of their own too with this full-board trip. Five amazing restaurants and 12 themed bars on hand to spoil you with sumptuous flavours! After each long day, you’ll rest your head in a comfortable inside stateroom for either two, three or four of you equipped with all the essentials.
