1 day river cruises on the Rhine in early Dec.

Are there any river cruises on the Rhine River in Dec.? It appears that most cruises end in Oct.

Yes, it seems there are winter cruises. Check out this website: http://www.bingen-ruedesheimer.com/ Click on the British flag to get the English version and then check out the various offerings. They definitely have a cruise on New Years Eve, beginning around 1800 hours (6pm) and returning 2am on Jan. 1

KD has a limited winter schedule - but boats sail only if a sufficient # of customers sign up in advance: http://www.k-d.de/de/linienfahrten/winterfahrplan/ (couldn't find an English page.) The Bingen-Rüdesheimer doesn't seem to offer anything in winter except for maybe the NY Eve deal. Why? People aren't crazy enough to get on a boat in winter there. Jim: The trains follow the riverbank on both sides and allow for good sightseeing. They run every day, all day long. And they're kept nice and warm!
