Vacation Overview

From Holland to Romania, with a host of exciting stops along the way, this river cruise vacation across Europe is truly an adventure!

Amsterdam, Holland’s lively capital, is set amongst sophisticated architecture and classic squares and canals with countless museums, cafés, shops, and restaurants to explore. See the treasures of this 700-year-old city on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten. In Germany, enjoy a guided city walk in 2,000-year-old Cologne. There’s guided sightseeing in Würzburg, Bamberg, Nuremberg, and Regensburg, and you’ll sail the Main Danube Canal connecting the Main and Danube Rivers. Melk, Austria, offers the magnificent Benedictine Abbey, and then sail through the picturesque Wachau wine region to Dürnstein, famous for its blue and white baroque Stiftskirche. Guided sightseeing introduces you to three capitals: Vienna, Austria; Bratislava, Slovakia; and Budapest, Hungary. Continue your river cruise adventure on the Lower Danube with an excursion to 2nd-century Pécs, Hungary, where you’ll visit underground burial chambers now part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stop in Serbia’s Belgrade and cruise through the dramatic Iron Gates Gorge. In Bulgaria, visit Belogradchik’s eclectic rock formations, the ancient capital of Veliko Tarnovo, and Arbanassi—with its Church of the Nativity housing an outstanding collection of frescoes.

Leave your ship in Oltenita, and head for Romania’s vibrant capital of Bucharest, also known as the “Paris of the East.” A guided tour will show you many of its historical treasures. To round out this fabulous vacation, drive into Transylvania to visit Bran Castle, of Dracula Fame and spend a night in Brasov. Before returning to Bucharest, visit Peles Castle, considered to be one of the most breathtaking castles in Europe.
