All This Included
From Budapest to Bucharest, cruise along the Danube & through the spectacular Iron Gates on this luxury all-inclusive 8 day cruise, ending at the Black Sea.

For much of the 20th century, the remarkable wonders of Eastern Europe were concealed behind a thick veil of secrecy. Fortunately, those once mystery-laden lands are now open to all.

Cruise on board your luxurious Scenic Space-Ship down the Danube and from there journey all the way to Romania. Begin your adventure in Budapest, regarded by many as the most beautiful city in Europe, then continue through a handful of unspoilt lands, where lush landscapes are punctuated periodically by towns and cities that still look as they might have over a hundred years ago.
