Our Danube Cruise on the map

We stepped aboard Viking Danube in Nuremberg, a week of cruising through the heart of Europe ahead of us. The capital cities of Vienna and Budapest (our final destination) looked like highlights and we anticipated a wealth of sumptuous baroque architecture. Regensburg and Passau, both places I didn’t know of though they sounded as if I should, were unexpected; charming, long established towns grown rich in the past through their position and trade. Regensburg in particular appealed with its patrician towers lending a romantic air.

We’ve put the Danube Cruise on the map with photos we took along the way.

Look out for the city guides, they were all very knowledgable and entertaining, and justifiably biased to their own city. And check out the Viking Danube herself. We found her a friendly and intimate ship; a tribute, I think, to her crew who looked after us well and created a good atmosphere aboard.
