River Cruise Itinerary

Day 1 (Mon, Aug 03, 2020): Budapest

Arrive at the Budapest airport and transfer to the deluxe Hilton Budapest (or similar) in the heart of the city for a 2-night stay. Spend the rest of the day relaxing, or do some exploring on your own.


Day 2 (Tue, Aug 04, 2020): Budapest

This morning, take a tour of Budapest, the capital of Hungary. Situated along the Danube, it combines the once separate towns of hilly Buda and cosmopolitan Pest into a city rich with history. Begin in Pest, where you see the National Opera House and visit historic Heroes' Square. Cross the Chain Bridge to Buda, where you walk along Castle Hill to Fishermen's Bastion and Matthias Church. The rest of the day is yours to explore. (B)


Day 3 (Wed, Aug 05, 2020): Budapest

After breakfast, check out of your hotel and relax as we take you to embark your ship. Enjoy a final free day in Budapest. Explore a museum; do some shopping; ride the city's innovative, efficient metro; relax in one of the Art Nouveau spas; or visit the Great Synagogue and Jewish Quarter. As always, your Program Director can help you plan your free time. Return to your ship for a welcome dinner. (B, D)


Day 4 (Thu, Aug 06, 2020): Kalocsa

Arrive in Kalocsa, Hungary this morning and take a guided city tour visiting the town center followed by a short organ concert at St. Joseph Church.

Day 5 (Fri, Aug 07, 2020): Osijek

Wake up in Vukovar and have breakfast before your excursion to the Croatian city of Osijek.

Return on board for lunch and enjoy free time before an early-evening departure. (B, L, D)

Wake up in Belgrade, capital of Serbia. Take a guided walk through the grounds of Kalemegdan Fortress, now a stately park; also see the Orthodox cathedral and stop at the Square of the Republic.

Day 7 (Sun, Aug 09, 2020): Iron Gate

Today, enjoy scenic cruising as you travel through one of the most picturesque areas of the Lower Danube.

Day 8 (Mon, Aug 10, 2020): Vidin

Arrive in the picturesque Bulgarian port of Vidin, and take an excursion to see Belogradchik Fortress, built right into the striking Belogradchik Rocks.

Disembark in Giurgiu and proceed to the superior first-class Radisson Blu Hotel Bucharest (or similar) in the heart of Bucharest for a 1-night stay. This afternoon, enjoy a half-day tour of Romania's lovely capital city. See the city's wide boulevards, the Romanian Athenaeum, the Arch of Triumph and the Palace of Parliament. Visit the outdoor Muzeul Satului, otherwise known as the Village Museum, where authentic dwellings from all regions of the country have been relocated and reassembled, including rural cottages, farmhouses and water mills.
