We wanted a short break and always enjoy river cruising. We kept our fingers crossed that we’d see this area along the Danube in beautiful autumn colours, and we did! Right from the start there was someone to help us on our way. As soon as we had our bags at Budapest airport we were met and put onto our buses. From then on there was always help at hand. The entertainment on board started on our first evening with a taste of local traditions and then during the week there was either music, quizzes or competitions. Some of the little towns were lovely and the city tours were to the pace of the passengers. If you wanted to hike up a hill to a castle or take a gentle stroll all were catered for. And the accommodation was just great - clean cabins, attentive service and lovely food. What more do you want on a relaxing break away!

We saw beautiful places in such comfort and so well looked after!

Cabin Review

Cabin 316
We’d the smallest of this category of Grand Balcony Suite, but it was great, and on lounge level. The lift down to dining was very useful. We enjoyed the views as well as the comfort of the cabin itself. It was kept spotlessly clean and there were lots of lovely extras included.
