Cruise Highlights

Hidden treasures rediscovered. For much of the 20th century, the 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 the picturesque Black Sea. Begin your adventure in Budapest, regarded by many as the most beautiful city in Europe, then journey 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.
