Jodie says...
“You can take in the views from the expansive sun deck, the lounge-bar or why not enjoy the wellness area, including a sauna and whirlpool with large round panoramic windows, and comfortable reclining chairs! If you want something more private, you can take in the spectacular views from your 16m² cabins! You really are cruising the Danube in style and comfort!”
Day 1 Embark in Passau – Melk
Today, we make our way to Passau, known as “The Three Rivers City” due to its unique location where the Danube, Inn and Ilz rivers meet. Here, we join our ship. We can then relax as we set sail and cruise towards Melk.

Day 2 Melk – Vienna
Today, we can visit one of the most famous monastic houses in Austria, Melk Abbey, in the Wachau Valley. Alternatively, we can explore the pretty Austrian town of Melk, browse the shops and enjoy a coffee in a traditional café. The remainder of the day will be spent relaxing on board as we sail to Vienna for an overnight stop.

Day 3 Vienna – Budapest
Waking up in Vienna, we have the whole day to enjoy the city and its historic buildings and attractions. We highly recommend joining a city tour which will take in some of the major attractions that the capital city has to offer. In the afternoon, either enjoy an excursion to Schönbrunn Palace or explore the city at leisure. In the evening we cast off and cruise towards Budapest.

Day 4 Budapest
Spend time in one of the world’s most beautiful cities and explore both sides of Hungary’s capital – traditional “Buda” and cosmopolitan “Pest”. Start with an optional tour to become acquainted with the city and then spend time at leisure exploring and enjoying the many delights Budapest has to offer. Alternatively, there is the option to take an excursion to a traditional stud farm and enjoy a tour of the grounds in a horse-drawn carriage before watching a live Puszta horse show.

Day 5 Budapest – Bratislava
We have the morning to enjoy more time in Budapest before rejoining the ship for lunch whilst setting sail for Bratislava.

Day 6 Bratislava – Dürnstein
We will arrive in Bratislava in the early morning so we can start exploring straight after breakfast. This historic city has a laid back atmosphere and is compact, therefore easy to explore on foot. We could also take a short bus ride up to the castle before enjoying a drink in a café on the banks of the Danube. Later in the day we will set sail towards Dürnstein.

Day 7 Dürnstein – Passau
Dürnstein is famed for the ruins of the castle that once imprisoned Richard the Lionheart. Take a stroll around the town and admire the pretty courtyards and buildings, before stopping at one of the Wachau Valley’s wine cellars for some wine tasting. We then set sail for Passau.

Day 8 Disembark in Passau
We disembark this morning and begin our journey home.
