Danube; Europe


The delightful Danube


The Danube journeys through the very heart of Europe, passing through 10 different countries and calling in at some of the world’s most elegant, vibrant and influential cities - including Budapest, Vienna, Bratislava and Belgrade.


Explore Budapest


Budapest is eastern Europe's liveliest and most cosmopolitan city both by day and night - it is undoubtedly one of the most popular destinations on our Danube river cruises. Many of our itineraries feature a guided tour of Budapest and the city sites.

Douro; Portugal


The Enchanting Douro


Navigating the beautiful Douro year round, Cruise Director Rachel knows these enchanting waterways like the back of her hand. Journey with her through Portugal's charming and mysterious countryside, offering a snapshot into this unmistakable gem.


Why the Douro?


The Douro runs through one of Europe’s most beautiful stretches of countryside, flanked by vineyards under the warming Portuguese sun. Traditional wineries and charming villages break up the fields of green which typify the Douro region.

Rhône; France


The Romantic Rhône


Cutting a serene path through the heart of France, medieval cities and Roman ruins line the remarkable Rhône as it journeys south through ancient villages and prosperous towns. Gallic heritage can be experienced on every bend of this beautiful river.
