Cultural Immersion

PACING: You'll visit 6 ports of call in 9 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.

EASY & FAST WALKING TOURS:
 On your European river cruise, 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, and in select locations you'll have free time to walk on your own.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: This is a moderately active itinerary featuring a mix of panoramic (driving) sightseeing tours and walking tours. 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. Castle and museum visits often require climbing flights of stairs. Please note: Vantage river cruise ships are not wheelchair accessible and there are steps on board.

CULTURAL FOCUS: A Danube river cruise is the perfect way to take in the legendary scenery of the region, which has been lauded in music and writing throughout the ages. The fairy-tale nature of the region is enchanting, while the historic importance of the river to the heritages of Germany and Austria is evident as well. Vantage's exclusive "Cultural Connections" activities, which include lectures, demonstrations, and concerts provide you with opportunities to truly experience the cultures and traditions of the places you visit. Because you're visiting during Advent, the countdown period to Christmas, you'll hear a lecture on "Christmas Traditions," and visit several festively decorated Christmas markets.

Please note: Port times and itineraries are subject to change. Fluctuating water levels and winter weather may affect your itinerary. In addition, the opening days and hours of Christmas markets are subject to local traditions. 

Important Notice:The above day-by-day itinerary is preliminary and subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Cruise Director or regional expert. In addition, should there be an extreme change in water levels, Vantage will do everything possible to provide either the included excursion or an alternate excursion at Vantage’s discretion.

Please Note: Port times & itineraries are subject to change. Fluctuating water levels and winter weather may affect itinerary. All Christmas markets are subject to local traditions and opening dates and times are dependent on the local authorities.
