Day 1: Engelhartszell (Passau)

Depart 5:00pm

This is the departure point for your Danube cruise. Our tip: to ensure that you get off to a relaxed start, travel the day before the cruise begins and spend the night at one of our partner hotels. This will allow you to explore the region around Passau, too. And when your ship sets sail for an exciting Danube cruise, you will have already enjoyed your first few adventures.

Meals: Welcome Dinner

Day 2: Vienna

Arrive 1:00pm  -  Depart 8:00pm

This is a real highlight of your Danube cruise: Vienna, the capital of Austria with that extra-special something. The locals sound as though they are singing when they speak, and it is customary for certain business owners to address their regular customers with their full title. That’s just the way things are done here. With its wealth of museums, galleries, palaces and castles, plus the state opera and many theatres, the city enjoys a lively cultural scene all year-round. The Viennese are proud of their city – and rightly so!

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Budapest

Arrive 12:00pm  -  Depart 10:00pm

Do you know how many bridges Budapest has? There are seven in total – and they span the river between the neighbourhoods Buda and Pest. The most well known is probably the Széchenyi Chain Bridge. Take a look at Budapest’s imposing structures for yourself as you cruise down the Danube. And if you go out onto the sun deck of your ship, you’ll also have an unobstructed view of Budapest’s famous parliament building. The perfect way to experience a stunning city.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Kalocsa - Mohács

Kalocsa: Arrive 7:00am  -  Depart 9:00am | Mohács: Arrive 1:00pm  -  Depart 4:00pm 

During your Danube cruise, the ship will call at Kalocsa, where we will stop briefly. This town lies to the south of Hungary’s capital, Budapest. Its best-known tourist attraction is the Paprika Museum. Did you know that Kalocsa has the largest pepper-growing area in the world?

This idyllic little town on the Danube in southern Hungary is a delightful place to visit. Its pleasant location, snug alleyways and generous squares lend it a relaxing atmosphere. The country’s southernmost Danube ferry plies back and forth here, before the river leaves Hungary and flows into the Black Sea. Your river cruise will take you to one of the Danube’s most beautiful towns, which is also a carnival hotspot. 

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5: Belgrade

Arrive 7:00am -  Depart  11:45pm

Belgrade is a well-kept secret among Europe’s many metropolises. The capital of the Republic of Serbia, it is the country’s political, cultural and economic centre. It has a population of around 1.7 million, making it the country’s most populous city too. Belgrade’s location makes it a hub for travel between central and south-eastern Europe. During your Danube cruise, you’ll get to experience Belgrade up-close and enjoy this wonderfully varied city.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6: Cruising Day

During your cruising day, enjoy watching the scenery drift by as you look forward to the next towns and cities. Our tip: the spa is a great place to unwind and pamper yourself during your day on the river.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7: Rousse

Arrive 2:00pm

During your Danube Delta cruise, you’ll discover the beautiful port of Rousse. Many people consider this pearl of northern Bulgaria, nestled among the most varied landscapes of the eastern Danube plain, the country’s prettiest city. By the time you have taken a stroll along Ulitsa Aleksandrovska, between Rousse’s two main squares, you’ll probably feel the same. Enjoy your day in Bulgaria!.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8: Rousse - Oltenita (Bucharest)

Rousse: Depart 1:00am | Oltenita: Arrive 6:00am  -  Depart 8:30am

The ship will call at Oltenita, just 60 kilometres from Romania’s capital. Bucharest – often called ‘The Paris of the East’ – awaits you. A city full of contradictions, it manages to bring together many different periods of history at once. Lots of people end up falling in love with Bucharest. Will you?

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9: Tulcea

Arrive 12:00pm -  Depart 3:00pm

It’s time to explore the Danube Delta! Tulcea is your stop today. The city can look back on a very eventful past.

After your day’s explorations, your cruise will take you right into the Delta – an exciting passage with splendid views.

Oltenita: Arrive 4:00pm - Depart 5:00pm  |  Giurgiu: Arrive 9:00pm - Depart 10:00pm

Bucharest – Romania’s capital, a city of fascinating contrasts. Beautiful boyar houses compete with concrete walls and glass facades, while straight avenues morph into winding streets. Bucharest is characterised by a constant contrast between poverty and prosperity. Having been under dictatorial rule during its time as a socialist republic, it still seems to be in need of regeneration today. But in spite of this, it’s still a city you can fall in love with.

The small town of Donji Milanovac is located in the east of Serbia, near the Iron Gate. A short walk along the bank of the Danube river will take you to a stretch of beach along a park. Nature seems to be still untouched here and the hustle and bustle of the city so far away. Pure relaxation!

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 13: Novi Sad - Vukovar

Novi Sad: Arrive 8:00am -  Depart 2:00pm | Vukovar: Arrive 7:00pm -  Depart 10:00pm

The capital of the autonomous province of Vojvodina makes quite an impression, with the mighty Petrovaradin fortress occupying the right bank of the Danube and the picturesque old town of Novi Sad standing atop the left bank. With around 220,000 inhabitants, it is Serbia’s second-largest city. Tourists are captivated by the old town – which looks as though it could almost be Italian. Will, it cast a spell on you too? During this Danube cruise, you’ll have the chance to find out.
