Activities & Entertainment

This trip is rated Moderate

Many of your river cruise's included sightseeing tours involve walking — occasionally on cobbled or uneven streets, or along unpaved vineyard paths. If you wish to extend your walks, your Cruise Director or local guide can suggest scenic routes nearby. At the same time, there is plenty of time to relax aboard ship, and should you wish to forego any activity, you are always at liberty to do so. For the fullest enjoyment of this trip, we recommend that you be in reasonably good health, and able to walk at least a mile unassisted.



Onboard Cooking Classes

Enjoy the 5-star dining onboard Vantage river ships? Get ready to learn all the tricks of the trade — and enjoy face time with our world-class chefs — when you sign up for complimentary onboard cooking classes in our Captain’s Clubs. Depending on the season and region you’re sailing, you’ll be treated to hands-on presentations spotlighting local produce, as the chef whips up main dishes and savory soups, followed by a delightful tasting session. Held during lunch- or dinnertime depending on your sailing schedule, these meals will replace those served in the main dining room. Each cooking class meals comes with food for thought, too — the conversation of fellow passengers in an intimate group of just 30.



Cycle along the Rhine, Main, & Danube
The Danube Bike Trail is perhaps the most famous cycling route in Europe, and with good reason. You can literally cycle from Germany all the way to the Black Sea, through majestic scenery along well-marked, well-maintained, and mostly traffic-free paths. Your Deluxe river ship has complimentary bicycles on board for use during your free time; just speak to your Cruise Director to reserve one. You can also rent these bikes for $150 a week for the duration of your cruise, simply reserve it as an optional tour in your MyPortfolio account. In various ports along our route — such as Budapest, Kalocsa, Belgrade, and Ruse — you can rent bicycles at an additional cost (should those on board be unavailable). Click the links below for maps of the many safe pathways open to cyclists. Your Cruise Director can point you in the right direction, which includes the routes below and those from www.bikemap.net.

Let Us Entertain You

Throughout your European river cruise, you’ll enjoy local arts and entertainment both on shore and aboard ship. For example, an organ concert and an orthodox choir performance will enliven your visits to Kalocsa, Hungary, and Ruse, Bulgaria. And for your listening and dancing pleasure while aboard your Deluxe European river ship, you’re invited to enjoy a range of hand-picked local entertainers and events, including a performance of your favorite Broadway hits from Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, The Sound of Music, and more; a string concert by 4 Virtuosos; a Viennese party night featuring dance lessons from a professional dance troupe; and a ballet history of the waltz. On Movie Night, you can leave your dancing shoes behind and relax with a good flick.
