Eastern Europe River Cruises

Experience the unique charm and unrivaled culture of an Eastern Europe river cruise

About our Eastern Europe river cruises

Our Eastern Europe river cruises are an adventure through a culturally captivating and historically impressive region of a wonderful continent.

From the enchanting waterways that run through the land, to the ability to discover multiple destinations in one trip, Eastern Europe is a jewel in the heart of Europe.

Highlights include the wonderful ‘dual cities’ of Buda and Pest, vibrant Bucharest and beautiful Belgrade. An endless selection of cuisines, cultures and history awaits as you head east on the river Danube to encounter the enticing, interwoven tapestry of one of Europe’s greatest regions. 

Experience Eastern Europe’s intricate History and Culture

The best thing about embarking on an Eastern European River Cruise is that you have the choice to customize and construct your trip the way you want to, in order to create that perfect, once-in-a-lifetime adventure you always dreamed of.

Looking for inspiration? Try setting sail to Romania’s capital, Bucharest, with its combination of cosmopolitan chic and colorful recent history. An adventure to Bucharest should consist of a trip to the old town, Lipscani, a culinary journey into the city’s cuisine, and a walk through the streets as you gaze up at the beautiful Art Nouveau architecture.

Alternatively, head to Budapest, where the twin cities of Buda and Pest create an experience like no other as you drift along the Danube. Take time out to visit the Széchenyi thermal baths, wander around Memento Park and marvel at the iconic statue at Hősök tere (Heroes’ Square).

Choose the Eastern European river cruise that suits you

Another fantastic element to choosing an Eastern European river cruise is that each destination offers up a different aspect of the region, allowing travelers of all types to experience them in many different ways.

If city living is your thing, the modern and trendy streets of Budapest will satisfy your need for a wide range of cuisine, quirky bars and side-street cafés.

If a more history orientated river cruise is your idea of adventure, then be sure to pick an itinerary with a trip to Serbia’s Belgrade, one of Europe’s oldest capital cities. Belgrade will impress you with its Church of Saint Sava, which, built in 1935, is one of the world’s largest church buildings. Next, guests can venture to see the ruins of a defensive fortress overlooking the Danube that was once used to protect the city from the Ottomans.

Bucharest shows our river cruise guests another meaning to the word elegance. The city’s landscape is punctuated by grand buildings and stunning belle époque villas. The undercurrent of mystery left behind from the Communist regime creates an air of beautiful intrigue like no other.
