Explore the magnificent old-world history and the modern cultural rebirth of central and eastern Europe cruising the spectacular Danube River from Vienna to the Black Sea on the ms River Explorer. All-inclusive cruises span seven beautiful countries over 18 days, running as low as $3,699 including airfare from select gateways.
"Our Danube River cruises offer great diversity, encompassing everything from ancient ruins and picturesque medieval towns to spectacular, cultured capitals and cities bearing the modern vestiges of communism," said David Gevanthor, executive vice president of Vantage. "This year, we've also made upgrades to this tour, including a full-day excursion to the park-filled, university city of Osijek, Croatia." He added that the Danube Valley offers some of the most spectacular natural wetlands and vistas.
Cruising the Danube to the Black Sea visits celebrated Old World cities, such as the Austro-Hungarian capitals of Vienna and Budapest, the Romanian city of Bucharest with its Communist relics, the ancient Byzantine city of Veliko Turnôvo overlooking a gorge on Bulgaria's Yantra River, and the resort town of Constanta, Romania, right on the Black Sea.
Trips include a dozen sightseeing tours, four UNESCO World Heritage sites, and Vantage's signature cultural connections: a lunch with university students in Arbanassi; a home-hosted meal in Osijek, Croatia; a community meal with villagers in Neszmély, Hungary; several folkloric and cultural performances, including a Bulgarian children's dance group, along with a classical music concert in Vienna and a series of onboard history and culture lectures and a visit by an icon painter.
Optional extensions are available for Prague and Bucharest. Departures run from April through September.
