Framed by rolling hillsides, lush vineyards and medieval castles, the Danube is the queen of Europe's great rivers. Travel to legendary destinations from Prague (Vilshofen) to Budapest, taking in the landscape that has captivated musicians, artists and poets throughout the centuries. Explore a 2,000-year-old city, savor Wachau Valley wines and revel in the timeless beauty and fascinating history of Vienna and Budapest. All of this will occur aboard AmaWaterways' AmaCerto, a 164-passenger vessel with spacious staterooms reserved exclusively for Inspirato Members and guests. An award-winning river cruise operator, AmaWaterways curates the finest fleet and provides all-inclusive river cruise vacations on the great waterways of Europe. With innovative, custom-designed ships, the line has long enjoyed a reputation as the world's leader in river cruising.
Peaceful and scenic, this cruise features a smooth, gentle ride along Europe's most remarkable waterways. Supreme comfort and convenience make it the premier way to visit the magnificent cities, historic villages and rarely seen enclaves along the Danube River. From your stateroom balcony, castles and fortresses tower on both sides, as if you could reach out and touch them. When the AmaCerto docks in the heart of town, stroll ashore for included excursions or set off to explore on a complimentary bicycle. Unpack just once and settle in as each destination comes to you.
AMAWaterways' complimentary Small Group Shore Excursions provide a world-class land tour in every destination. They hire the top local guides in every location, and are confident that you'll find no more intensive and immersive introduction to the culture and heritage of the region you're visiting. They offer a "Gentle Walkers" group, for those who'd like to explore at a more leisurely pace. Wherever possible, an "Active Walkers" group is offered for those interested in covering more ground, and a "Late Starter" group for those who prefer to sleep in. The AMACerto carries more than two dozen bicycles and plenty of safety helmets that are free for you to use. The bicycles give you the freedom to venture out and explore the riverside bikeways. Or, meander through quaint cobblestone streets. The bikes are set up and ready for use as soon as the ship docks.
