Eastern Europe Explorer
An extraordinary voyage awaits the traveller who wishes to venture off the beaten path. Experience the mystery and beauty of Eastern Europe as you sail through five nations—Hungary, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, and Bulgaria—linked by the majestic Danube and a fascinating history. Gaze in wonder at the great stone cliffs rising out of the Danube, where ancient Roman ruins still cling to steep banks. Sail through the legendary Iron Gates, meet the people of Osijek in an intimate setting, and see exciting Budapest, booming Belgrade, and eye-opening Bucharest on a cruise that combines ample leisure sailing and intriguing ports of call.
Explore the stone-hewn monastery of Basarbovo, the eerie rock formations of Belogradchik, and the ornately decorated 17th-century churches of Arbanasi. Bustling capital cities also await you: the “Queen of the Danube,” Budapest, offers splendid historic architecture and matchless views; lively Belgrade draws visitors from all over Eastern Europe; and Bucharest offers an eclectic mix of French-influenced architecture and monumental Communist buildings. This cruise gives you the exciting opportunity to experience the best that the revitalized nations of Eastern Europe have to offer. Ravishing river scenery, friendly people, and a plethora of cultural delights are yours to discover on this exhilarating and enlightening voyage.
