Danube Explorer 2019 Emerald Waterways River Cruise

Exploring a heady mix of wonderful capital cities and lesser-known gems of Europe, the Danube is an enduringly popular route for river cruise fans. The Danube Explorer offers a wonderful route down the ancient waterway, visiting Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest along the way. The Austrian city, Melk, is home to a 900-year-old Benedictine abbey. Overlooking the Danube, Melk Abbey is a prominent and breathtakingly beautiful work of Baroque architecture. The cruise concludes with a two-day stop in Budapest. Regarded as the Queen of the Danube, the Hungarian capital is split by the river and the entire city seems to pay homage to the waterway – with all buildings respectfully facing the waters. Whether you’re new to river cruising, or an old hand, the Danube is a river which cannot be missed.
