Come see a part of the world you never thought you’d see, with a fascinating history and amazing beauty. Or perhaps it’s an old favorite. Either way, you will have fun as we sail up the Danube over the course of 8 days and 7 nights. We sail from Bucharest to Budapest, through Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary. We will meet in Bucharest October 26 and arrive in Budapest November 2.

During the days, we will take part in a number of interesting tours and opportunities to explore the beautiful cities and sights along the river. In the evenings, as the ship continues up the river, we will enjoy a session of The Art of Marriage®, the engaging video experience from FamilyLife that presents God’s blueprints for marriage in a fun, fast-paced way, leaving plenty of time to relax and enjoy the amenities of the ship.
