Fun Club Chit Chat

The fabulous cruise on the Rhine River to Christmas Markets in three European countries will be a 2019 highlight for a number of Fun Club travelers. There are currently openings in some of the cabin categories however we never know how quickly these will fill.

We’re assuming spots will still be available when the Fun Club hosts a travel show on Wednesday, June 19, which will feature this awesome holiday tour. The Christmas Markets presentation will begin at approximately 2:10 p.m. at the Chances R Beer Garden. The program will follow the 1:30 p.m. travel show featuring our tour to Iceland.

If you are interested in attending one or both of the travel shows, please contact the Fun Club at 402-745-6477 or email us at The travel shows are free and open to anyone interested in group travel. Reservations are required to help us plan for seating and refreshments.

European Christmas Markets Cruise

The dates for the Christmas Markets Cruise are Dec. 3-11, 2019. The cost varies with the cabin category selected and starts at $3,495 per person with double room occupancy and the booking discount.

December is a magical time of year in Europe because the countries hold onto Old World holiday traditions and transform their towns into fairy-tale Christmas settings. The sights, aromas and sounds of the holidays are everywhere as both locals and visitors browse in the festively decorated markets.

In addition to visiting eight unique Christmas markets, there will be walking tours in these wonderful European Cities. Each city has its own charm with its cobblestone streets, monuments, public squares, medieval buildings, castles and cathedrals.

The Cruise Ship

You’ll love the 168-passenger Amadeus Silver II cruise ship which offers all the amenities of a floating 5-star hotel. The staterooms vary in size and are fully equipped with modern furnishings. Both the restaurant and the lounge offer fabulous views of the passing scenic landscapes. The staff speaks English and serves passengers with typical European hospitality. Local and international specialties, along with regional wines, are served daily at dinner.
