Singer and presenter Aled Jones MBE will be the star attraction on an Emerald Cruises Danube Christmas markets river voyage in November 2023, it’s today been revealed by Imagine Holidays.
On the four-night Christmas voyage, set to call at Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest, Aled Jones will perform songs from The Snowman, including festive favourite ‘Walking in the Air’, and a selection of seasonal carols.
A Q&A session with the singer and presenter will also be held on board Emerald Cruises’ luxury Emerald Dawn ship, which includes 92 cabins, a bar and lounge, cinema and a heated pool with retractable roof, and has been specially designed to sail the local waterways.
Aled Jones MBE said: “I’m so excited to be performing The Snowman in a unique and intimate setting, including a live performance of the iconic tale with strings, while I tell the story.
“I will also be singing the famous ‘Walking in the Air’ and performing a selection of my favourite Christmas carols, both old and new, which I guarantee will leave guests full of cheer. The Snowman and some of our best-loved carols; what better way to get into the festive spirit?”
Robin Deller, CEO of Imagine Cruising, added: “This will be a truly magical voyage, and we can’t wait to welcome Aled and all the guests onboard.
“As well as providing wonderful entertainment on the ship, we will be transported through eye-catching local scenery to some of the very best Christmas markets Europe has to offer.
“Guests can enjoy tours with our expert guides, as well as spend time on their own to experience everything from glass blowing, to chestnut tasting, to traditional festive folklore shows. This will be an unforgettable Christmas journey that is not to be missed.”
