Ultimate European River Cruise Itinerary

Your exclusive My Cruises cruise holiday begins with two nights in Bucharest, Romania’s capital city. Bursting with historical buildings, fascinating Eastern European culture, and energetic night life, it is the perfect place to begin your 23-night European adventure!
Waking up well rested from your first night in the hotel, enjoy the complimentary breakfast before joining the Uniworld crew to explore Bucharest. There are two complimentary excursions on offer each day of the Uniworld cruise holiday. Today’s options are a visit to the Peoples Palace, otherwise known as the Palace of the Parliament, or a trip through the Romanian countryside to see the Mogosoaia Palace and Vlad the Impaler’s tomb.
After checking out of the hotel, today’s adventures will begin with a choice of a Bucharest city tour focusing on the architectural highlights of the city, or a ‘Do as the Locals do’ tour of the city, focusing more on the culture, food, and day to day life in Romania.

In the afternoon you will board the coach to Giurgiu in southern Romania to meet your Uniworld cruise ship, the River Duchess.

Day four is your first full day on board the Uniworld River Duchess, explore the ship and her fantastic facilities before joining the shore excursions, included as part of your My Cruises cruise deal! Today’s port of call is Rousse, one of Bulgaria’s largest, and some would say elegant, cities nestled on the bank of the Danube. Choose from a Walking tour of Rousse including a visit to the Ivanovo Basarbovo monasteries, or venture further afield to the rural towns of Veliko Taranovo and Arbanassi in the north of Bulgaria and enjoy a traditional Bulgarian lunch.
Today’s activities are unusual, fascinating and slightly off the beaten track. Choose from the Red Rocks of Belogradchik, declared a National Landmark by the Bulgarian Government, these magnificent red and yellow rocks reach up over 200 meters in the air, surrounded by lush greenery and the Balkan Mountains as the backdrop. Said to be over 200-million years old, the views over the rocks are truly spectacular.

The alternative is a visit to the Romanian Cetate Cultural Port, a retreat for writers, poets and artists from around the globe for almost twenty years.

Cameras at the ready! Today the River Duchess will cruise the 134km long gorge that separates Serbia and Romania. This stretch of the River Danube is said to be amongst the most dramatic and breathtaking in all of Europe.
One of the oldest, and most fascinating European cities, Belgrade is packed full of WWII history, Royal Palaces, and fortresses dating back to the Ottoman and Byzantine era. The complimentary activities in Belgrade today give you a chance to explore the city, either by bike or coach.
Further down the Danube river you will have the chance to visit the City of Vukovar, in Eastern Croatia. Enjoy a short walking tour of the city and take in some of the beautiful Croatian scenery before heading to Osijek for an exclusive farm tour, where you can experience the Croatian country side and enjoy a home-hosted lunch.

Alternatively, you can choose to spend a full day in Osijek, discover the abundance of cultural and historic heritage throughout the town and take a tour through the country side sipping homemade brandy, followed by a home-hosted lunch.

Welcome to Hungary! Today there are three excursion choices available as part of your all-inclusive cruise package! Choose from a panoramic tour visiting UNESCO Heritage sites and the two halves of Hungary’s capital Buda and Pest.

Enjoy a relaxing day on board the Uniworld River Duchess as your European river cruise continues up the Danube River.

Nuremberg has been an important German town for centuries, said to be the unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire, the home of German Kings, and once the location of the German Crown Jewels. In the more recent past it was the chosen location for Nazi rallies during the war, and the post war tribunals known as the Nuremburg trials.
