Christmas Cruise on the Danube

Christmas Cruise on the Danube

Waltz your way down the beautiful Danube while majestic palaces and cities pass by

  • DAY 1:

    Your Door to Door service will transfer you to the airport for your flight to Vienna. Our local coach will meet us and transfer us to the ship in time to settle in to your cabin before your Welcome Cocktail and introduction by the crew.

  • DAY 2:

    After breakfast this morning we have a guided visit of the Schoenbrunn Palace & Gardens – the Hapsburgs’ summer residence.We return to the ship for lunch and then enjoy a guided tour of Vienna, the Imperial residence for more than six centuries. Vienna has been deeply marked by the seal of the Habsburgs and the Austrian capital owes its attraction above all to its monuments. The Christmas markets are also part of this refinement and you are invited to explore the Christmas market in front of the City Hall, marvellously decorated and features a variety of entertainments.


    We spend the morning sailing, having breakfast and lunch on board. We arrive in Budapest around 5pm, our Head Chef will invite us to the restaurant where we will celebrate Christmas Eve around a glittering Christmas tree and enjoy a succulent dinner.


    Merry Christmas! We spend Christmas morning with our guide on a panoramic tour of Budapest, the Pearl of the Danube. Highlights include the Castle quarter at “Buda” via the Chain Bridge. The Fisherman’s Bastion with its impressive views of the city and the Matthias Church, the oldest in the city founded in 1015 by Saint Stephen. Then on to “Pest” and the Heroes’ Square. Onwards to Andrassy Avenue and St. Stephen’s Basilica and finally the famous Parliament building overlooking the Danube. Lunch will be served on board with the afternoon at leisure to relax and open your presents or explore Budapest on your own.


    We sail this morning with lunch taken on board. We then enjoy a guided visit of Bratislava starting with a panoramic tour of the city and the castle, dating back to 1811 and enjoying breathtaking views of the city. Highlights of the visit include the Old Town and Michael’s Gate, which survives from the Middle Ages, and also the central square surrounded by elegant buildings and dominated by the old Bratislava Town Hall.

  • DAY 6:

    Disembark after breakfast and transfer to Vienna for flight to UK and your Door to Door transfer home.
