Happy Traveler Comment
I am writing you this note because I want you to know what a great employee you have in Robin! We have worked with her now for at least two if not more cruises, and she always handles everything quickly and promptly and with ease for us. We have had to change dates a couple of times with the latest cruise we are booking with your company and she always handles it graciously and with ease. Robin is great to work with, and with customer service as good as hers is we will keep coming back to her for our travel needs! Thanks! — Tyson B.

If you’ve always wanted to tour Central Europe, then consider taking a European river cruise down the Danube River on a luxury ship. This breathtaking waterway starts in Germany and empties into the Black Sea. Some itineraries take you through the heart of the Czech Republic, Austria and Slovakia.

Along the Danube, you’ll want to see:

Prague: The Astronomical ClockA medieval clock located on the wall of the Old Town City Hall in the center of the Czech Republic’s capital. This massive time-telling structure was built in 1410 and has stayed working over the course of 600 years. Also, watch the procession of the Twelve Apostles that occurs on the hour, every hour.
