Danube River Cruises

Europe's second largest river

The mighty Danube embarks on a 2,000-mile-long journey from the Black Forest in Germany to Sulina in Romania, where it empties into the Black Sea. The waterway claims eight countries on its course, including Germany, Austria, Hungary and Bulgaria. From grand cities like Vienna and Budapest to the unspoilt Iron Gate, a Danube river cruise is the perfect way to uncover so many of Europe’s most enchanting sights in one seamless journey.

Whether you’re joining the Danube from the Rhine River on our epic 15-day Splendours of Europe cruise, or you’re dedicating all of your time to this classic waterway on our 8-day Danube Delights or 10-day Enchantment of Eastern Europe cruises, the treasures of the mythical East are always close by. Each gentle mile offers an opportunity to gaze back in time, with city skylines telling stories of the past, grand monuments built in memory of local heroes, and unspoilt rural splendour fringing the water’s edge.
