1.200 Miles on the Beautiful Blue Danube

This is a special cruise program with many unforgettable highlights, including seven countries (Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania) and five world famous capital cities (Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava, Belgrade and Bucharest). A particular scenic highlight of this trip is the cruise through the “Iron Gates”, the imposing gorge where the Danube breaks through the Carpathian Mountains. The journey to kilometer zero, at the estuary of the Danube where it meets the Black Sea, and the visit to the Danube Delta with its amazing wildlife and scenery will remain unforgettable experiences. The trip is rounded off by a stay in Bucharest, the legendary Romanian capital full of history and tradition. The cruise can be booked either from Vienna to Bucharest or in the opposite direction, from Bucharest to Vienna.
