The Majestic East 2019 Scenic River Cruise

There's no finer place to begin a river cruise than in the magical city of Vienna. Enigmatic architecture, a vibrant artistic legacy and endless cultural contributions make this charmed metropolis an essential port of call for anyone looking to cruise the Danube. After waving goodbye to Austria's capital, the adventure begins to unravel. Slovakia's Bratislava is a pocket-sized capital of ornamental beauty, and an included guided tour introduces you to the region. Then it's on to mighty Budapest, arguably the most enchanting city to call the Danube's banks home, before continuing to Croatia and out into Belgrade. You will amazed at the diversity on offer throughout this Eastern adventure.
