Quite simply, there’s no better place for travellers to dip their toes into river cruising than along the Danube River. Why? No other river in the world flows through four capital cities, making it an easy waterway to get to and navigate for a quick, “test the river cruise waters” escape. Perfect cruising vacations for first-timers include these “short & suite” options:
• 4-day A Taste of the Danube itinerary visits three capitals and three countries in just three nights for as little as Cdn $1,140 (excluding airfare), giving first-time or time-crunched river cruisers a tempting opportunity to sample river cruising and several Blue Danube delights without breaking the bank.
• The 6-day Danube Symphony vacation sails down the most beautiful stretch of the Danube River, including the Wachau Valley (a world heritage site) with its vineyard-clad hillsides and picturesque villages.
