Day 1
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your flight to Budapest. Upon arrival, embark MS Bellejour (4T), where light refreshments are available. A welcome cocktail and captain’s gala dinner are served this evening.

Day 2
An included tour takes in the stunning highlights of Budapest, with many relics and monuments from over a millennium of settlements to choose from. Our tour will introduce highlights such as Parliament building and Heroes’ Square. The Castle District on the ‘Buda’ side of the river presents excellent views and photo opportunities.

Day 3
Join an included city tour of charming Bratislava, aboard the tourist train that winds through the city. See the lovingly-restored, compact Old Town and Bratislava Castle (Hrad) - where eleven kings and eight queens were crowned - which dominates the city.

Day 4
This morning we take an included tour of Melk’s imposing Benedictine abbey. Originally a palace, it was presented to Benedictine monks who turned it into a fortified abbey with an extensive library of priceless volumes and a richly embellished Abbey Church, its grand dome decorated with elaborate frescoes by Johann Michael Rottmayr.

Day 5
Enjoy a full day at leisure in Passau, a city best known for St Stephen’s Cathedral, home to the world’s largest cathedral organ. You may also like to take a path through the forest to Veste Oberhaus. Built for the prince-bishops in order to control commerce across the three rivers that converge here - the Danube, Inn and Ilz - the former castle enjoys fantastic views and the museum tells a history of repeated attacks and a stint as a military prison. An optional guided walking tour will be available, should you wish to join.

Day 6
Spend this morning in the elegant, creative city of Linz, with the option to wander freely through the charming Old Town or to take an optional tour. The Old Town boasts many historic buildings with a mix of modern architecture, including Linzer Schloss. With a popular optional excursion planned for tomorrow evening, we enjoy the captain’s farewell gala dinner tonight.

Day 7
Our cruise comes to an end in the magnificent city of Vienna where we enjoy an included city tour this morning. A vast number of classical composers were born or lived in Vienna and many of them worked with the Vienna Boys’ Choir, a cultural institution which can be traced back to 1498. In the afternoon, perhaps join a dance lesson on board to learn how to waltz, and later why not take an optional excursion to enjoy a concert in one of the city’s impressive palaces. Relax in opulent surroundings and enjoy the uplifting music of Strauss or Mozart; a fitting finale to your cruise.

Day 8
We transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.

You will have the option to book your own flights independently with the operator.
