What to Expect
Moderate activity level
Cultural Immersion

PACING:

  • The pace of this itinerary is easy to moderate
  • Visit 12 ports of call in 15 days during your European river Cruise, spending 14 nights aboard the Deluxe m/s River Splendor
  • There will be plenty of time to enjoy the wonders of a Danube, Main, and Rhine on the cruise, with views of castle-crowned vistas, medieval townships, and the grand capital cities of Vienna and Budapest
  • Overnight and full-day stays in many ports, with the ship departing late in the evening

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • On your European river cruise, you'll have a chance 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
  • On some tours, you'll have free time to walk on your own
  • The Rhine and Danube river valleys are steep and many of the places you'll visit rise up along the river banks. Therefore, expect short uphill walks from the ship as you set out to visit town centers
  • Castle visits often require climbing flights of stairs
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:

  • Many of the walking on tours is over uneven terrain, cobblestone walkways, and flagstone paths
  • Air-conditioned private 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:

  • Temperatures typically peak in the summer. Winter can be chilly and it will usually be colder at night
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly

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 may affect itinerary.
