The Classic Blue Danube

5 stars
“Wonderful cruise from start to finish. Extremely comfortable ship (Amadeus Riva). Delightful crew who provided first class service throughout - nothing was too much trouble. Menu choice and all meals incredibly high standard for a relatively small ship. All excursions interesting and well organised by cruise directors. Would highly recommend to others.

“We had a great holiday and the scenery was fantastic. The first 4 days were done with trains, 1st day stop Stuttgart with castles to see, next 3 at Fussen and mountain's to see all great. The rest of the holiday was on ship on the Danube, terrific service and views.

“As we like rail travel we chose this holiday linking with a river cruise which we enjoy. This was one of your longer journeys, heading towards the cruise from Budapest. There were several holdups on the outward 2 day train journey and there was anxiety that connections would not not be made. Simon, our train courier, was excellent, keeping us up-to-date. Unfortunately we arrived too late for dinner at the NH hotel in Nuremburg and were given sandwiches instead, not a good start as we had set off early that morning. After another held-up journey to Budapest the next day we arrived at the ship late, rather exhausted. The cruise was delightful, accommodation brilliant, staff helpful, food good. We enjoyed visiting such interesting countries though we opted out of the Austrian trips to Salzburg or Austrian lakes and enjoyed a very relaxing cruise from Linz to Passau instead. The recital by the string quartet from the Vienna Philharmonic was a highlight and the musical duo were excellent too. It was unfortunate that on occasions we were moored next to another cruise ship, thereby blocking the view from our cabin. Consequently we did not stay in our cabin on Mozart deck as the moored ship next to ours made it dark. The train journey home was delayed to Brussels so we had to rush to check-in and then we were told Eurostar to St Pancras was delayed by 50 minutes. We therefore missed our rail connections and finally managed to get home by 12.30am on Saturday 9th September. We will recall the cruise and the beautiful ship with pleasure and were fortunate with the weather, but we would not consider long train journeys with various connections again, which were arduous. (We used the Baggage Man which was an excellent service.)

Visited Cities on an Austria River Cruise

Vienna, Austria's capital, is one on the most notable destinations on an Austrian river boat cruise. The city's Gothic and baroque buildings ooze extravagance and its reputation as a cultural capital is well-deserved as it plays host to fabulous works of art, music and literature. For those who like to dine out and spend time shopping you won't be disappointed with the exquisite boutiques and fine restaurants that line the streets.

A little less ostentatious than Vienna is Nuremberg which boasts a wonderful fusion of traditional and contemporary living. Its flourishing parks and red sandstone buildings colour the city in vivid colours, and its fascinating history flows through the ancient streets of the Old Town which are still surrounded by medieval walls.

A well as the more popular larger cities, you can visit ancient towns that are steeped in a rich history when you embark on an Austria river cruise. The wine growing region of Melk boasts row upon row of clusters of succulent grapes that pepper the countryside. A visit to the striking Benedictine Abbey which is baroque in style is a must as its extraordinary Marble Hall is home to one of the world's most ornate ceiling frescos. Alternatively, you may prefer to amble around the medieval city centre of Regensberg which is justifiably a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
