Melodies of the Danube with Titan Travel
Melodies of the Danube with Titan Travel
This cruise along the Danube ticks all the boxes for scenic beauty and enchanting cityscapes. A classical treasure trove of history and the arts, we’ll stop in opulent Vienna - with the option of a live classical concert. In Linz, the new and shiny lives in harmony next to the old and rugged; and the small town of Dürnstein was written straight from the pages of a storybook. Glide from city to town and hear stories along the cobbled lanes.

MS River Discovery II
We’re excited to welcome the spacious and elegant MS River Discovery II to our fleet. From June 2021, she sails the scenic waters of the Danube, passing quaint Wachau Valley vineyards and elegant, culture-filled cities along the way.
The ship offers passengers generously sized cabins over three decks and a splendid choice of accommodation, with dedicated cabins for solo travellers, superior cabins with French balconies, superb Deluxe Suites and an opulent Owners Suite.
Meanwhile, the communal areas are perfectly designed for guests to mingle. Passengers can relax in the ship’s two stylish lounges or the spacious sun deck which has a walking track and giant chess. The Captain’s Club Lounge on the middle deck also has a retractable roof and panoramic windows, so guests can enjoy an alfresco experience. For those looking for some quiet time, retreat to the library or use the on board gym.

Day 1 UK - Budapest
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your flight to Budapest. Upon arrival, embark MS Bellejour (4-star), where light refreshments are available.
Day 2 Budapest
Relics. Monuments. Fairytale castles and palaces. Healing thermal waters. It can only be Budapest - and we waste no time in exploring the best bits this morning on our guided tour of the city. Then, perhaps hire a pedalo across the lake to Városliget Park for a wander through the enchanting castle gates and beyond.
Day 3 Bratislava
Welcome to Slovakia. You might choose to join us on an excursion into Bratislava on the tourist train through the city. Wind through the charming old town and past the dominating Bratislava Castle (Hrad) - where 11 kings and 8 queens were crowned. After, take a wander for yourself - the old town is the perfect walkable size.
Day 4 Vienna
Good morning, Vienna. This magnificent city was home to a vast number of classical composers over the centuries - and for good reason. As you wander, the streets ooze opulence and charm at every turn. Kick the day off with an introductory city tour to get your bearings and learn about the city’s history, then you’re free to make your own discoveries. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend a concert this evening in one of the city’s impressive palaces. Relax and enjoy the uplifting melodies of Strauss or Mozart.
Day 5 Dürnstein
Situated on an impossibly beautiful curve on the Danube, Dürnstein may well be the town that has it all. Charming buildings. A ruined hilltop castle. Stunning surrounding scenery. What’s more, it has a fascinating history: its grand castle walls once imprisoned Richard I of England - Richard the Lionheart. Stroll freely through the cobbled lanes, or perhaps opt for our orientation and wine tasting tour.
Day 6 Melk
This morning we take a 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 7 Linz
Spend your morning soaking up the elegance and creative buzz in Linz. Wander through the old town freely, or perhaps join our optional city tour. The city offers a delightful mix of modern and historic architecture, including Linzer Schloss. For a better view of the city, perhaps take a ride on the Pöstlingbergbahn, a narrow-gauge railway that climbs up the steep incline of the Pöstlingberg hill to the north of the city. Later, enjoy a relaxing afternoon cruising towards Passau.
Day 8 Passau - Munich - UK
Transfer to Munich airport for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
