10 Days

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. 

Itinerary

This exciting journey along the Danube begins in Vienna, where you will embark in the afternoon. After exploring your floating luxury hotel, you have the opportunity of meeting the cruise director at a Welcome Cocktail. Our chef will spoil you with a lovingly prepared Welcome Dinner, after which your ship will weigh anchor and head towards Bratislava.

Stay Vienna

Arrival at 12:00pm

You arrive in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava before breakfast. This romantic city with its impressive Gothic and Baroque buildings is best explored in the morning, during the course of a city sightseeing tour, which takes you to all the most beautiful sights. You return to your AMADEUS ship for lunch on board, and thereafter you have the opportunity of visiting a family-owned vineyard in the Small Carpatian wine region. Your ship weighs anchor before midnight and arrives in Esztergom in the morning.

This afternoon, discover the grandeur of Matthias Church and the fairy-tale-like Fisherman‘s Bastion on a tour of Budapest. Alternatively, embark on “An Authentic Taste of Budapest”, starting at the market hall and continuing at the famous geothermal baths. As a special treat this evening, local artists come on board to entertain with dances and music, while the vessel cruises the Danube through this iconic city by night.

The almost 18-hectare nature reserve at the confluence of the Drava and Danube rivers is home to a rich variety of birdlife and provides a protected habitat for numerous other animal and plant species. You can explore the untouched moor and floodplain area by boat and enjoy the largely untouched nature before returning to your AMADEUS ship for dinner, which sets course for Belgrade that same evening

After lunch, you can join an excursion to Topola and Oplenac, where you can see the famous St. George’s Church, which is the final resting place of most of the Serbian royal family.

Excursions

After a visit to the fortress in Golubac in the morning, you can spend the day on board. Enjoy a truly impressive natural spectacle. On your journey you will pass the "Iron Gate", one of the most impressive gorges in Europe, which also forms the natural border between Serbia and Romania. One of the most beautiful sections of the route is the Cazan (cauldron) near the town of Orşova, where the riverbed is reduced to just 200 meters wide and 80 meters deep and travelers are rewarded with a fascinating view of the surrounding Carpathians and the Balkan Mountains. The small monastery church of Mraconia, located on the Romanian side of the Danube by the water, is also worth a visit. Immediately behind it, the monumental rock sculpture of the Dacian king Decebalus near Dubova rises in the distance, the largest in Europe at an impressive 40 meters high.
