Hi @lilek22:  Travel Nut here.

I’ll let someone local comment on the aspects of what is open & closed in Europe over Christmas Week (maybe you will want to list the various countries / stops and the dates)

BUT what I wanted to say is that weatherwise, December isn’t the best time.  March would be better in that regard (again it also depends on WHERE you’ll be sailing to).  And May thru September truly the best of all.

PS… We love to cruise.  Who are you sailing with ?

Hope this helps (some)

We’re doing the 11-day cruise from Rome leaving January 11, 2014 with Norwegian…We’re going to Paris for 3.5 days, Rome for 3.5 days, then leaving on the cruise. I’m super excited, I don’t mind the cold, so that didn’t affect our decision.




I’d be more worried about the holidays affecting attractions being open, rather than it being too cold to enjoy. I think Europe in the winter is romantic! 🙂
