5 countries wine cruise

 12 days

Wine and Dine through the Heart of Europe.

Farmed by rolling hillsides, lush vineyards, and medieval castles, the Danube River has captivated musicians, artists and poets throughout the centuries. Sheer cliffs rise above the mighty river, with tiny baroque villages nestled at their feet. Terraced hillsides are topped by time-mellowed monasteries. The vineyards along the Danube have supported farmers for centuries; thes days ambitious vintners apply the latest techniques to making luscious white wines from ancient vines - and you'll get to taste the fruits of their labor.

As you cruise through the heart of the old Habsburg Empire, you'll find beautiful libraries, astonishing frescoes, medieval city walls, and Gothic cathedrals, encountering the perfect mix of big-city glamour and small-town ease, high culture and the simple pleasures of daily life.

Rest assured you will have ample time for socializing and relaxation, too. Our ships feature comfortable lounges, lively bar areas, swimming pools or whirpools, salons and fitness rooms. At the end of the day, you will be pampered with turn-down service, plush linens, and peace and quiet for good night's sleep. Tomorrow, there is more to see and experience!

Bon Voyage!
