A Danube River cruise takes you through the heart of Eastern Europe from west to east.  A much beloved Danube River Cruise or as some know it, the Blue Danube is famed in literature and in song alike. 2001: A Space Odyssey? Who could forget the scene of the space ship docking with the space station with the strains of the Blue Danube Waltz playing in the background? So peaceful, so calm, yet with a beauty and grandeur all its own — not unlike a river cruise ship floating, no gliding, down the Danube River.

Imagine for a moment, a beautiful morning on the Danube, and you and your traveling companion are enjoying a extraordinary bike ride (included) from the village of Durnstein to the majestic village of Melk, can it get any better.  Stop for a leisurely coffee in route, enjoy Melk and Durnstein at your own pace, and then reboard your river cruise ship... ah, life can be grand on a Danube River cruise.

A Danube River Cruise has become the most demanded river cruise in recent years.  In recent years it is the most sought after river cruise in all of Europe, even more so than Rhine River Cruises.  This is in part do the the wonderful places like Vienna, Budapest, Melk and Durnstein that are on most Danube River Cruises. And, Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe is easily reachable as a pre or post trip stay from most Danube River cruises.  If you are planning a Danube River Cruise, you truly must book as early as possible or you will not be able to sail in spacious a balcony stateroom.

The Danube River is the longest river in the European Union. Running over 1700 miles east from its origins in Germany’s Black Forest, a Danube River cruise will take you on an unforgettable voyage through or alongside the borders of ten countries before it eventually flows into the Black Sea at the mouth of the Danube Delta. From the former imperial capitals of Vienna, Austria and Budapest, Hungary to medieval Vidin, Bulgaria with its legendary Baba Vida Fortress, a cruise down the Danube is a showcase for the region’s rich historical, cultural, and political landscape.

We've mentioned that a Danube River cruise certainly has wide appeal, even though our Premier River Cruise Experts sometimes wrestle with whether they should recommend a Rhine River cruise or its Danube counterpart as one’s first river cruise. The good news is that it really doesn't matter as both are not only extraordinary travel values, but guaranteed to produce a perfect vacation and a lifetime of memories for everyone.

A river cruise on the Danube allows wine and beer connoisseurs ample exposure to fine European wineries and tastings, Music lovers more than enough time to embrace the home of the Waltz. For history buffs, there’s 2000 years of history around every corner and when you combine all of its attributes, a Danube River cruise will provide even the meekest photojournalist with incredible photo opportunities throughout each day.

And for the “foodies” among us, some of the most incredible cuisine found anywhere — oh yes, I forgot... I’m a dessert junkie and I want to tell you that there’s nothing like roaming the many, many pastry shops that you’ll encounter. These cruises are a “dessert junkies” delight!

One of our favorite times to enjoy a river cruise on the Danube is during the Holiday Markets season which occurs between late November and New Years. We enjoy the Danube more than the Rhine for a Holiday Markets cruise because the ports offer more to do during the cooler periods of the year. With places like Prague, Budapest, Melk, Durnstein and Vienna, the Danube is the best choice in cool weather.

And, remember than a Danube Holiday Markets river cruise offers better weather than does Boston, New York or Chicago during the late fall and winter. Premier will preapre you with the proper clothing to take with our Compass Point Guide, but suffice it to say, you'll enjoy weather in the low to mid 40's during your trip which is very, very manageable when dressed correctly.

Okay, enough about the food. Did you know that you can see Roman ruins near the town of Kostolac, Serbia? It’s true. The Roman city of Viminacium was a major provincial capital in its heyday. And speaking of Rome and Romans, did you also know that the principal language of Romania, an Eastern European country, is considered a romance language. Those Romans sure did get around!
