Enjoy the best of Deluxe river cruising on our Grand European River Cruise. Experience the spires of Cologne and the spectacular Rhine Gorge with the Austrian-Hungarian Empire cities of Eastern Europe. This journey combines our Majestic Rivers of Europe and Gateway to the Black Sea, our two popular river journeys that have been newly enhanced for 2014, this voyage is specifically made to dive into the full pageant of European history and culture in the best way possible — by unpacking just once aboard a state-of-the-art Vantage river ship. You’ll explore seven countries via the continent’s great river “highways” — the Rhine, the Main, and the Danube. Along the way, get to know Vienna and Budapest, meet local people and visit homes, and stroll off your boat into the winding lanes of medieval towns and villages. You simply won’t find a better, more in-depth Deluxe European river cruise ... or a better value!
