The shimmering waters of the fabled Danube River flow for thousands of miles through the very heart of Europe, silent witness to centuries of artistic achievement and historical events. Experience dynamic Budapest, imperial Vienna and exquisitely preserved Prague. Marvel at ravishing scenery as your luxurious Uniworld ship S.S. Maria Theresa glides through the Wachau Valley, celebrated as one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, into Germany and past charming Bavarian villages.
Join Charles and Ursula Massoud on this delightful journey while enjoying Food & Wine Trails onboard wine program exclusively for Paumanok & Palmer guests. These private events include welcome and farewell toasts, seminar & wine tasting and a wine-paired dinner with your hosts wines. As you sail along the mighty Danube River, between Budapest and Passau, you’ll visit six different ports where you’ll be having the time of your life exploring the rich cultures, old-world capitals, charming towns and villages.
Upon arrival in Passau, you will be transferred to Prague, the beautiful capital city of the Czech Republic for a 2-night/3-day land program. The city is a magnet for generations of artists, writers, scientists and composers, and famous for its dynamic energy and elegant ambiance. The beers here are pretty amazing too!
