Vienna
Classical music concert in Vienna

There is a reason why Vienna is called “The City of Music”. The bus will take you to one of the best chamber orchestras in the musical world of Vienna. Excellent opera singers, talented musicians and graceful solo ballet dancers will let you experience the warmth and charm of the lovely Vienna. This performance takes you on a journey through time, to experience the imperial Vienna, where the beautiful compositions from the likes of “the Waltz King” Johann Strauss and W. A. Mozart, will leave you amazed. Your evening will be filled with swinging waltz melodies, polkas and operetta melodies of the highest artistic level. The trip on the Ring Road back to the ship forms a perfect conclusion to the lovely evening.

Explore the world – safely!

For us, the safety of the guests and crew on board our ships always comes first – especially in these current times. In 2020, we proved that our safety and hygiene practices work when we were the first cruise operator worldwide to get our ships going again in June. Our proven measures meet national and international health standards. We have summarised the key facts for you in our 10-point plan.

For our ocean cruises we will introduce the so called 2G regulation, which stands for „Geimpfte and Genesene“ and means vaccinated and recovered persons on October 27, 2021 on VASCO DA GAMA and for WORLD VOYAGER from October 29, 2021. On our river trips, the 2G regulation applies with the start of the winter season from November 29th, 2021.

This means that on our cruises from the dates mentioned, only fully vaccinated or recovered guests travel in accordance with the 2G rule. Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the 2G regulation. They must present a negative PCR test, which must not be older than 72 hours at the time of entry.

This year, we are again pursuing our passion to offer you unforgettable holiday experiences, showing you the most beautiful spots on the river and along European coasts. Come on board!
