From the Danube Delta to Prague with Habsburg Royalty

From the “Paris of the East” in Bucharest, Romania, to the “Golden City” of Prague, in the Czech Republic, this Danube river cruise is an odyssey of new discoveries to treasure. Begin in Bucharest for a tour of the capital’s boulevards, Arc de Triomphe, Royal Palace Square, and historic sites from a dramatic history.

You’ll sail overnight to St. Gheorghe for an excursion to the Danube Delta at the entrance to the Black Sea. Join a small-boat guided tour of the delta’s rivers, canals, and marshes. Enjoy a special “Kilometer 0” celebration of the mighty Danube’s 2,845km journey from the Black Forest to the Black Sea.

Sail through the Balkans to Budapest, headed to Prague. Begin in Budapest, where guided sightseeing acquaints you with the highlights of the vibrant capital of Hungary. See Heroes’ Square, and all the famous sights that make this city come to life, then sail to Bratislava, Slovakia for guided sightseeing of the capital. Vienna, Austria, once center of the Habsburg Empire, is home to the lavish Habsburg Imperial Palace and neo-renaissance Vienna Opera House.

Enjoy the magnificent views of the Wachau Valley wine region, visit Melk’s magnificent Benedictine Abbey, and sample local wines. In Linz, stroll through the Hauptplatz—Austria’s largest medieval square. You may choose to take an excursion to the Austrian lake region, historically frequented by the Habsburg family. Take a guided walk around Passau, Germany’s narrow cobblestone streets and St. Stephen’s Cathedral—a masterpiece of baroque architecture.
