PACING:

  • The pace of this itinerary is easy
  • You'll visit 6 ports of call in 8 days, spending 7 nights aboard a Vantage Deluxe European River Cruise Ship
  • There will be plenty of time to enjoy the wonders of the Danube River, where you'll admire castle-crowned vistas, medieval townships, and the grand capital cities of Bratislava and Vienna
  • This itinerary features overnight and full-day stays in select ports, with the ship departing late in the evening

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • This itinerary features a mix of panoramic (driving) sightseeing tours and walking tours
  • You'll have chances to join included walking tours that go at an easier leisurely pace or some that go at a faster clip, depending upon your abilities and preferences. Either way, you won't miss any highlights
  • In select locations, you'll have free time to walk on your own
  • Please note: Vantage's owned fleet of river cruise ships have elevators, but tours are not intended for travelers using mobility aids like walkers and wheelchairs. There are steps onboard

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION:

  • Castle and museum visits often require climbing flights of stairs
  • Much of the walking on tours is over uneven terrain, cobblestone walkways, and flagstone paths. There also may be wintery weather conditions at times
  • Motorcoaches are used whenever possible to bring you as close to the pedestrian centers as the historic preservation of these older towns and cities allow

CLIMATE:

  • Expect chilly temperatures during November and December
  • On average, you may find highs of 45 and lows of 30
  • Rainfall averages about 8-10 days a month and, of course, it may snow
  • Pack accordingly and bring gloves, hat, scarf, jackets, layers and more
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly
