What to Expect
Moderate activity level
Cultural Immersion

PACING: You'll visit 9 cities and ports of call in 12 days, spending 9 nights aboard a Vantage Deluxe river boat, either the ms River Splendor or ms River Voyager, and 1 night in a Superior First-Class hotel in Bucharest. You'll enjoy a Danube river cruise between Hungary and Bucharest on a well-paced itinerary that highlights the emerging nations of Central Europe, including Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Serbia, and Romania. This itinerary features overnight and full-day stays in many ports, with the ship departing late in the evening.

EASY & FAST WALKING TOURS: On your Danube 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, and on some tours you'll have free time to walk on your own.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: This European river cruise features an active itinerary featuring several full days of touring. You can expect drives of one and half hours as many of the sites visited are at some distance from the ports along the Danube. While all motor coaches are air-conditioned, the quality standards can differ from those in Western Europe. Much of the walking on tours is over uneven terrain, cobblestone walkways, and flagstone paths. Coaches are used whenever possible to bring you as close to pedestrian centers as the historic preservation of these older towns and cities can allow. You will be visiting several sites where there are multiple flights of stairs and no elevators.
Please note: Vantage river cruise ships are not wheelchair accessible and there are steps on board.

CULTURAL FOCUS: The centuries-old history of the emerging nations of Eastern Europe is surprising to many who enjoy a Danube river cruise. From the imperial capital of Budapest, through the Danube's Iron Gates, this journey embraces the proud heritage of Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria, Hungary and Croatia, then and now. The focus is on the people, their multi-cultural beginnings, and this dynamic region poised at the crossroads of history.

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.
