This brand new 2016 itinerary is a tantalizing hybrid of our “European Jewels” and “Highlights of Eastern Europe & Istanbul” voyages. Discover the full spectrum of European culture and history on this in-depth exploration of 10 countries along the Rhine, Main, and Danube rivers.
From Amsterdam, your luxurious ship will transport you to some of Central and Eastern Europe’s most legendary locales. Visit alluring German locale such as Cologne, Nuremberg, and Regensburg, and gaze in wonder at the spectacular scenery of the Rhine River Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site lined with fairytale castles. In Vienna, we offer an exclusive “Vienna, City of Arts” tour, a must for anyone who loves art, music, and architecture. Get up close and personal on our exclusive “Village Day” excursions, savor the regional delicacies and postcard-perfect landscapes found along Austria’s UNESCO-protected Wachau Valley, and explore the enchanting city of Budapest, a compelling mix of east and west.
Sail onward to Croatia, where you’ll visit a local farm and enjoy a home-hosted lunch. In Belgrade, a city tour will introduce you to must-see sites such as the Royal Grounds of the Karadjordevic Dynasty Palace; if you prefer, opt for a guided “Go Active” “I Bike Belgrade” tour of the city, a Uniworld exclusive. Cruise through the sheer-faced stone cliffs known as the Iron Gates, and head ashore to explore rock-hewn monasteries, otherworldly rock formations, and lavishly decorated churches. A wide array of other memorable experiences await, such as a city tour of Bucharest that includes the gargantuan People’s Palace, Romania’s most famous building. Your adventure culminates in exotic Istanbul, where you’ll have a tour of the city and visit the colorful and aptly named Grand Bazaar.
