  • Passau, Germany... your cruise begins in the 'city of three rivers', located where the Inn, Ilz, and Danube rivers meet. Walk its beautiful, narrow cobblestone streets, and admire the Baroque architecture of St. Stephen’s Cathedral. 
  • Linz, Austria... take a guided walk through this historic city and see the Hauptplatz—Austria's largest medieval square— and the white-marble Trinity Column. You could take a hike through the nature trails here, to Pöstlingberg, for a view over the city.
  • Ybbs an der Donau, Austria... admire the fine architecture in this little town, before sailing past the vineyards and castles of the Wachau Valley.
  • Vienna, Austria... see the lavish Habsburg Imperial Palace and neo-renaissance Vienna Opera House in the 'city of music'. You could explore the city by bike, or talk a walk in the pedestrian Kärntnerstrasse—the most famous shopping avenue in central Vienna.
  • Bratislava, Slovakia... the capital of Slovakia is your next stop. Here, you could take a walk through the delightful Old Town and visit the Gothic-style St. Martin’s Cathedral. 
  • Budapest, Hungary... finish your holiday in the Hungarian capital. Visit the iconic Heroes’ Square, get to know the city’s cafes and pubs, or take a hike through the hills above the Danube. You can admire the beautiful parliament buildings as you disembark and begin to head home.

Ship details
Avalon Illumination is a small ship which carries 166 passengers at full capacity. Enjoy the views of the Danube from the ship's deck, take on the discovery tours at each destination—many of which are complimentary—and relax with a drink at happy hour once per day.

Breakfasts and lunches are served buffet-style in the glass-walled Dining Room, and dinner is often a four-course affair. The menu is best described as continental with local influences. Wines, produce, and dishes from Austria and the Middle Rhine region of Germany are daily features onboard. Wine and beer are served during lunch and dinner at no extra cost.

Deluxe Staterooms are located on the lower deck of the ship and offer a window at the top of the cabin, as well as a stocked mini-fridge, bath robes, toiletries, and a television. Upgrade to a Panoramic Suite for a balcony and a 'bed with a view'—beds face the window so you can watch the scenery pass by from the comfort of your morning lie-in.

Other options
Sail in a Panoramic Suite from £1799 per person.
