The Danube is a popular choice for cruises because of the breathtaking scenery, including mountains and valleys, scattered with wildlife and vineyards, which makes a magnificent backdrop for a cruise. Along the way, passengers can explore a wealth of places, including Budapest, Vienna, Bamberg, and Bratislava.
Cruises on the Danube visit stops in Austria, Germany, Croatia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Moldavia, Serbia, Romania, the Ukraine, and Slovenia. There is a wide choice of itineraries for Danube cruises, and some companies will combine the Danube with other cruises such as the Rhine. Some also focus on just one part of the Danube, for example from Bucharest to Budapest, passing through Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, and Hungary. So, if there is somewhere you are especially keen to see, ensure that the itinerary is suitable. There are also a range of options as to the length of cruises on the Danube, 7-day, 16-day, and 2-week cruises, for example.
