Danube River Cruises
In a recent survey, the river that Titan customers were most keen to travel on was The Danube. And who can blame them?
Book a Danube river cruise and you could soon be listening to a classical concert in a Viennese palace or taking a tour of Budapest’s Gothic Parliament Building. You could be sipping wine from a Wachau Valley vineyard or indulging in a slice of chocolatey Austrian sachertorte. And you could be stepping into age-old churches, baroque cathedrals and hushed monasteries.
Each cruise offers fantastic value for money – you’ll enjoy VIP door-to-door transfers in the UK, free-flowing wine and beer at lunch and dinner, and delicious onboard cuisine inspired by the regions you’ll be cruising through.
The Danube flows through four capital cities: Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade. Cruises often call at two or three in one sailing, so you could be touring Vienna’s opulent Schönbrunn Palace one morning and gliding past Budapest’s illuminated Parliament Building a couple of evenings later.
History and heritage
The smaller towns and cities lining the Danube are rich in history. There’s baroque architecture in Passau, a ruined hilltop castle in Dürnstein, an imposing palace-turned-Benedictine abbey in Melk – and much more besides.
River cruises are the perfect way to see some of the Danube’s most beautiful scenery. Sail through the Wachau Valley, where rolling hills are neatly laid out with riesling vines; or the rugged Iron Gates gorge, with its forest-cloaked cliffs. At the eastern end of the river is the Danube Delta, a UNESCO-protected wetland that’s home to more than 300 bird species.
