Having booked in advance, you're guaranteed a spot on this Danube River cruise, which is very popular during the height of summer.

Waste of time and money

Not only was this cruise heinously expensive, it was also a complete let down. There was nothing at all to see, the audio could wasn’t audible and the service was non-existent. Save yourself the money and explore on foot.More
