DAY 3
05 Jun 2019
Bucharest, Romania
Giurgiu, Romania

Bucharest is a fascinating combination of Communist grandiosity, elegant French-influenced 19th-century buildings, and surprising survivors dating from the 1500s. Enjoy a tour that shows you this city from a local's perspective. Later, you'll embark the ship in Giurgiu.

DAY 4
06 Jun 2019
Rousse, Bulgaria
Tirnovo, Bulgaria
Arbanassi, Bulgaria

DAY 5
07 Jun 2019
Vidin, Bulgaria
Belogradcik, Bulgaria
Vidin, Bulgaria

Vidin is a port town on the Danube the once played an important role in medieval Bulgarian politics, as the great fortress Baba Vida attests. It's your base for one of two unusual excursions today—visit to the fascinating Belogradchik rock formations or head to a riverside estate devoted to the arts.

DAY 6
08 Jun 2019
Iron Gate, Romania
Golubac Fortress, Serbia

Today's main attraction will be the spectacular scenery along the Danube, as you cruise a stretch of gorges known as the Iron Gates. Later, head ashore to explore a Paleolithic site and an extraordinary well-preserved medieval fortress. All along the way, history lines the banks of the river. Keep an eye out for Trajan's Plaque, which the ancient Romans erected to commemorate the road they anchored in the steep cliffs above the water, and Golubac Fortress, built in the 14th century and attacked successively by the Serbs, Magyars, and Turks. The Turks won the castle in 1458, which helped to reinforce their control of the area until 1867 when they abandoned it.

DAY 7
09 Jun 2019
Belgrade, Serbia

Belgrade, the modern-day capital of Serbia, is one of Europe's oldest cities, dating back some 7,000 years. Signs of its tumultuous history are visible everywhere, juxtaposed with the city's vibrant modern-day present. See it all with a choice of excursions, either a city tour that visits the palace or a guided bike ride. You have two very different ways to see Belgrade today—the choice is yours!

DAY 8
10 Jun 2019
Vukovar, Croatia
Osijek, Croatia
Vukovar, Croatia

Welcome to Croatia! This ancient country has made a remarkable recovery from a brutal civil war, and its beautiful countryside, colorful folk traditions, and delicious rustic cuisine make it a most rewarding place to visit. You'll dock in Vukovar, Croatia's biggest port, at the confluence of the Danube and Vuka rivers.

DAY 9
11 Jun 2019
Budapest, Hungary

Located on opposite sides of the Danube, Buda and Pest each has a distinctive character and allure all its own. Explore this dynamic and multi-faceted city with your choice of excursions—you can see it from a local's perspective on our exclusive walking tour, cover more ground with a panoramic tour, or "Let's Go" with a guided bike ride. Vibrant Budapest, Hungary's capital, offers an enchanting combination of East and West, old and new. Even its geography is made up of two parts—Buda (the hills) and Pest (the flatlands)—divided by the Danube. Which part will you choose to explore today? You have three options to choose from.

DAY 10
12 Jun 2019
Budapest, Hungary

Disembark the ship.
