Whether you’re looking for entertainment or exploration (or, frankly, a little bit of both), a Danube River cruise is sure to tick off all your boxes. With two fantastic options exclusively available to the over 40s, you can’t go wrong with a nautical adventure through Europe with us.
These two experiences overlap in some areas – for example, they both take place on the same gorgeous waterway and they both take you to some of the best cities and towns in all of Europe. However, each has its own subtle differences. Music lovers and anyone seeking live entertainment will enjoy our Sounds of the Fortunes excursion, which embarks in October of this year, while those with an interest in culture, history and, of course, relaxation will get the most out of our Danube River Cruise 2020, an adventure that takes place in June and October of 2020.
Sounds of the Fortunes
8 days by Air, 18 October 2019, from £1299 per person
Fortune favours the brave… luckily, having a good time on our Sounds of the Fortunes Danube River Cruise is as easy as pie. Entertainment each and every night, free drinks that just keep flowing and stops all over Europe, from Budapest to Bratislava… what more could you want from a Danube cruise? While there will be plenty of performances to keep you entertained over the course of this eight-day excursion, two evenings will be exceptionally special as they will feature live performances from none other than the harmony beat group the Fortunes.
Hop aboard the MS Verdi, our four-star, chartered vessel, and get ready to be entertained by the Fortunes – they still haven’t lost their touch even after all these years.
A Fortunate Time
Since they were formed in 1963 in Rugby, Warwickshire, the Fortunes have enjoyed a successful career – so much so that they are still performing to this very day. Eddie Mooney and Michael Smitham have been with the band for almost 50 years, and they still love putting on live shows… so much so that they regularly perform on our Danube cruises. When you watch these entertainers in person, you’ll immediately be able to see why they have retained such popularity.
Listen as they serenade you with the Fortunes’ most famous hits and popular tunes (many of which are from the 60s and 70s), and feel yourself transported back to the golden era of music. They will also regale you with fascinating anecdotes and stories from their many years in the music industry – so you can get to know them on a more personal level after having enjoyed their songs for decades.
“The friendliness on board and good all round entertainment was fine, not to mention the good food and wine on our Danube cruise.”
Danube River Cruise 2020
8 days by Air, 13 June & 19 October 2020, from £1349 per person
They say hindsight is 20/20 – and if you don’t embark on our Danube River Cruise 2020 with us, we’re sure you’ll be regretting your decision. While the previous excursion was a music lover’s dream, this one is perfect for travellers with an interest in the finer things in life, whether it be visiting a selection of European cities or lounging around and relaxing on our four-star ship, the MS Verdi.
Join us on this fun-packed adventure – history, culture and more await.
A Danube Cruise to Remember
Although it’s only an eight-day trip, we guarantee this excursion will be one that stays with you for years after you dock on the final day. If you’re looking to explore Europe, this is the ideal form of transportation – you’ll float leisurely down the second largest river in the continent and take in the views and scenery as you travel. At your various stops, which include lovely and magnificent cities such as Vienna, Budapest, Dürnstein and more, you will have the opportunity to peruse the history and romance they offer, as well as discover cultural jewels and striking architecture.
On board you’ll find that the ship is incredibly well-appointed and a hub of entertainment. It can hold up to 136 guests, meaning that those who are looking to meet new people can easily do so. The food is absolutely fantastic, the drinks are free and you will be able to find live entertainment each and every night – boredom is one thing you won’t ever feel on this Danube cruise. With other great additions such as a friendly crew who offer superb service and large en-suite cabins complete with windows, this is one holiday you simply can’t miss.
“This Danube cruise had a relaxed atmosphere with freedom to do as much or as little as you liked at each location.”
Entertainment, exploration, Europe… you’ll be hard pressed to find an adults-only Danube cruise better than ours. Whether you choose to sing and dance along to the sounds of the Fortunes or you’re happy to wait until 2020 to explore all the continent has to offer, you’ll be sure to find the nautical adventure of your dreams with us.
