Setting sail from Regensburg

Originally founded by the Celts and later an important Roman settlement, Regensburg is one of Bavaria's lesser known gems. Situated on the northernmost bend of the Danube, it's a friendly and laid back city, with an exceptionally well preserved medieval centre.

Arriving in Budapest

Budapest is one of Eastern Europe's most appealing cities, a vibrant and welcoming capital that straddles the Danube. The history of Budapest has been somewhat turbulent - ransacked by the Mongols in 1241, occupied by the Ottoman Turks for over a century, and almost flattened by the Soviets in 1945 - but plenty of older buildings survive, including the imposing Parliament and iconic St Stephen's Basilica. Although a pedant might point out that Budapest has only really existed since 1873; up until then the city's two distinct halves, Buda and Pest, were separate towns.

Don't miss

If you are a music lover, you can’t miss a performance at the Opera House – affordable, and great music in a wonderful building.

What we love

Rich woods are complimented by muted tones, giving these ships an airy and luxurious feel. The alternative restaurant with outside seating at the rear is an idyllic place for a relaxed lunch as you cruise to your next call and the regional cuisine served in the Dining Room is excellent.
