A free onboard drinks package forms part of a new fly, stay and river cruise package from Australia to eastern Europe aboard the newest five-star ship for low-cost river cruise line, Riviera Travel.

Small ship cruise specialist, Cruise Traveller, has released an exclusive, 12-night ‘Danube Delights’ fly/stay/cruise package that showcases the imperial beauty of Budapest, the romance of the River Danube and the baroque palaces and medieval villages which line the iconic waterway.

Available on four departure dates between April and October, 2019, the new, value-add package combines a five-night stay in Budapest, Hungary, with a seven-night ‘Blue Danube’ river cruise, round-trip from Budapest to Linz and Salzburg in Austria aboard Riviera Travel’s latest five-star river ship, the 167-guest Robert Burns, launched in April, 2018.

After flying to Hungary from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane or Perth, travellers will spend five nights at a boutique hotel in Budapest, including daily breakfast, a 48-hour hop-on-hop-off city bus pass and a full-day tour, with lunch, to a Hungarian ranch to watch the traditional Puszta Horse Show.

Guests then board Riviera Travel’s new, luxury river ship, Robert Burns, for a seven-night, return cruise on the Danube from Budapest to Linz in Austria. Along the way, visits include the baroque old town of Bratislava in Slovakia, the magnificent, Benedictine monastery at Melk and the palaces and museums of Vienna, with a side trip from Linz to the ‘Sound of Music’ city of Salzburg. Complimentary excursions are included each day as well as a live, classical quartet recital and Hungarian folklore show onboard the Robert Burns.
