Danube River Cruises
In 2007 we introduced the MS “Kleine Prinz” (“Little Prince”) on our ever popular Southern Danube routing. It’s a perfect size for river cruising! With only 90 passengers, one never gets lost in the crowd as on a huge ship, yet there are enough passengers for companionship and long lasting friendships. The “Kleine Prinz” is the perfect deluxe vessel to cruise this often overlooked section of Europe.
The ship boasts very large cabins by river vessel standards. The cabins are 172 square feet with large picture windows and private bathrooms. The sun deck is huge with a shaded picnic area and plenty of padded lounge chairs for relaxing or sunning. The panoramic lounge and bar is comfortable, light and airy - a great place to meet with friends and view the beautiful Danube River. Ample buffet breakfasts and sit down lunches and dinners are all served in a lovely one sitting restaurant on the upper deck. A rarely seen item on small vessels, the “Little Prince” even has a full sized, wheelchair accessible elevator connecting the Main and Upper decks.
An expanded 12 day itinerary gives guests a wonderful sampling of Eastern Europe’s undiscovered charms: Austria’s Imperial Vienna, Slovakia’s old world capital of Bratislava, Hungary’s architecturally gorgeous Budapest, the Croation port town of Vuckovar, Serbia’s vibrant capital of Belgrade, Bulgaria’s ancient and pedestrian friendly Vidin, and Romania’s glorious “Paris of the East,” Bucharest. Also, along with the Danube cruise, we have added a hotel night in Bucharest to give you a chance to further explore this fine city. Couple all this with our young and efficient 25 member crew, an eloquent cruise manager and knowledgeable tours guides, a talented on board live band, and a full program of included shore excursions, lectures, and entertainment. Put it all together and you have a great European vacation at a bargain of a price! We are confident that this is one of the “Best Values that Money Can Buy”. If you have never taken a river cruise before, you will certainly become a fan of this relaxed, INCLUSIVE travel style after taking this cruise.
