Itinerary

DAY 1: BUDAPEST (EMBARK) On arrival to Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport you will be greeted by a Uniworld representative and transferred to the ship to begin your cruise.

DAY 2: BUDAPEST Budapest is an enchanting city that presents a vibrant mix of medieval and modern. Discover the "Pearl of the Danube" with a choice of incredible excursions. Or enjoy some free time visiting highlights such as Fisherman's Bastion or the remarkable Hungarian Parliament Building. Featured Excursions: Choice of Budapest panoramic highlights with Opera House visit or Budapest walk with local treats.

DAY 3: BRATISLAVA  VIENNA Your ship sets sail from Bratislava later this morning and heads for Vienna today. You may relax on-board all day, perhaps enjoying a drink on the Sun Deck and taking in the scenery as the ship wends its way along the Danube Bend. When you arrive in Vienna, you’ll cap off your day with an exclusive concert of Mozart and Strauss at a stunning Viennese palace. Featured Excursions: Bratislava walking tour with UFO visit or "Let's Go" hike to the Castle of Bratislava, and Private Mozart and Strauss concert.

DAY 4: VIENNA Vienna is a cultural treasure trove revered for its art and music (and sinfully rich pastries). Experience the “City of Waltzes” with your choice of tours, as well as an expertly-led tour of an extraordinary collection of art at the renowned Vienna Art History Museum. Featured Excursions: “Morning with the Masters” at Vienna Art History Museum and choice of Vienna - Imperial city highlights or Vienna's music and composers.

DAY 5: DÜRNSTEIN  MELK Dürnstein is one of our favourite towns along the Danube, a lovely place to wander cobblestone lanes, browse quaint shops and maybe hike up to a ruined castle (with an intriguing tale all its own). You can also opt for a tasting or learn all about the world’s costliest spice from the Wachau Valley’s only saffron grower. Later, visit the 900-yearold Melk Abbey and its extraordinary baroquestyle library. You have two ports of call in the incredibly scenic valley, Dürnstein and Melk, and an assortment of delightful ways to explore this lovely region. Featured Excursions: Choice of Dürnstein wine estate visit with tasting or Dürnstein village and saffron workshop, and Melk Abbey with library visit.

DAY 6: LINZ (SALZBURG OR LINZ) Mozart’s birthplace of Salzburg is nestled in a glorious alpine setting that sparkles like a winter wonderland; Linz may be best known for its famous Linzer torte, but it’s also a hotbed for the arts. See the sights with a local expert and visit a family at their farm in the countryside. Austria’s third-largest city, Linz boasts a long history of trading and textile manufacturing, but these days it is perhaps best known for its electronic arts and annual festival. Featured Excursions: Choice of full day Salzburg with Sound of Music, or Linz town and country: Linzertorte and cider farm visit.

DAY 7: PASSAU Passau is a crossroads in more ways than one, as three rivers meet here and three nations nearly do, making for a fascinating cultural mosaic. Get to know the town and its main claim to fame-Europe’s largest pipe organ-or “Let’s Go” with an invigorating riverside hike or bike ride. Featured Excursions: Choice of Passau walking tour with St. Stephen’s organ concert* or “Let’s Go” bicycle ride along the Inn River or “Let’s Go” hike along the Ilz River. *St. Stephen's organ concert is only available May 1-October 31, excluding Sundays and Catholic holidays.

DAY 8: PASSAU (DISEMBARK) Disembark the ship and you will be transferred to Munich Airport for your returning flight home.
