Passau: the Baroque City on Three Rivers

In Germany, the blue Danube, green Inn River, and black Ilz come together in a city that celebrates its connection to the water: lovely Passau, the City on Three Rivers. Located in Bavaria, Passau is a showcase of wonderful baroque and Gothic architecture.

Bratislava

On your walking tour of Slovakia's capital city, you'll glimpse the city's diverse historical sites — including Bishop’s Palace, Main Square, and the National Theater.

Regensburg: Germanys Medieval Gem

Two thousand years of history line the streets of Regensburg, a beautifully preserved Bavarian city on the Danube. Today, nearly 1,000 buildings built between the 11th and 13th centuries remain standing in their original glory, unscathed by World War II.

Biking Opportunities

On board our ships, complimentary bicycles are available for your use so you can pedal along the scenic paths that wind along the river, or cycle around town, during your free time.

Learn How to Make Apple Strudel

Here is a preview of how you'll learn to make authentic Austrian apple strudel — and taste the delicious results — on board during your Deluxe Vantage European river cruise.



Health & Wellness During Your European River Cruise

Our tours are designed to help you get out and explore, no matter your activity level. Ideally paced and full of options, our trips put you in control, whether you want to “do it all” or unplug and do nothing. Join a walking tour to the next village, or cycle alongside a Dutch canal with one of the complimentary bikes we offer on board. Plus, you’ll have ample free time to experience the world in your own unique fashion.

Optional Extension to Prague

Make the most of your included airfare to Europe by adding a stay in magnificent Prague, an elegant, old-world capital boasting many grand castles. On your included half-day tour, you'll enjoy a walking tour of the Prague Castle complex, a diverse collection of buildings dating from the 10th to the 20th century. The former seat of power of medieval kings, the complex also contains the residence of the current Czech President.

A Holiday Extension in Budapest

With your airfare already included in your price, this is your chance to experience more of Budapest, a magnificent city of baroque splendor aptly named "Queen of the Danube." What's more, this three-day extension is a terrific value, with two nights included at a centrally located hotel, breakfast daily, and one dinner! Just step outside your superb hotel and you'll be in the heart of one of the "hottest" destinations in Europe.
