The Blue Danube to Budapest

 

 

For the perfect four-star river cruising experience on the waters immortalised by the composer Strauss in the classical waltz “The Blue Danube”, look no further than this cruise on board the MV Arena. We cruise from Linz through the breath-taking Wachau Valley to Vienna.  We take a guided tour of this beautiful city before sailing onwards to Budapest and spend a full day in the “Pearl of the Danube” with a guided tour. Another day dawns, this time in Bratislava, the historic capital of Slovakia dominated by its castle, and we take a road train tour with external visits to the Cathedral and Palace before continuing along the Danube to our final destination, Durnstein, famed for the ruins of the castle that once imprisoned Richard the Lionheart. Whilst here, there is the opportunity to go ashore and spend a couple of hours exploring the pretty streets and buildings before returning to the ship. We have return travel from Hull to Rotterdam with P&O Ferries and stop overnight in Saarbruecken in both directions for your added enjoyment.
