Escorted Danube River Cruises

Sail down the River Danube and admire the subtle changes in the passing scenery from the comfort of an intimate river cruise ship. Our Danube river cruises use ships that have been specially designed for cruising the most famous rivers in the world and with amenities such as panorama lounges and large sun decks, you will never have to miss a moment of sightseeing.

On the banks of the River Danube lie majestic and historic cities such as Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava as well as picturesque towns and villages like Passau, Melk and Krems. Each place has its own individual style and history, offering visitors a unique experience.

The four and five star ships used on our Danube river cruises are much more intimate than large cruise liners, they typically carry between 50 and 200 guests due to being custom built for river cruising. The ships have been designed with guests' comfort in mind and feature a range of excellent amenities, making them feel more like floating hotels rather than river cruise ships.

The meals on board are also of a great standard and vary from buffets at breakfast time to elegant multiple-course dinners. Guests are free to relax on the sun deck, in the lounge or at the bar and depending on the ship used there may be a selection of other facilities, such as fitness rooms and outdoor whirlpools.
