Saga’s Voyage Across the Continent: an Epic 23-night river cruise through eight countries from North Sea to Black Sea

Amadeus Royal (Courtesy Saga)According to legend, Constanta Beach is where Jason landed with his Argonauts after finding the Golden Fleece and this eight-mile stretch of Romania’s Black Sea coast is one of the treasures to discover on Saga’s Voyage Across the Continent river cruise.

This epic sailing on 138-guest Amadeus Royal is exclusively for Saga guests and the eight-country cruise along the Rhine, Main and Danube takes in some of Europe’s greatest cities and most spectacular scenery.

Amsterdam, Nuremberg, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade feature on the journey with the chance to visit Cologne’s chocolate factory and an eccentric museum of music in Rüdesheim as well as enjoying a classical concert in Vienna and a dazzling performance of traditional Hungarian horsemanship.

Amadeus Royal passes the 132-metre Lorelei Rock, the forbidding Iron Gates gorge on the Danube, the Carpathian and Balkan Mountains and a delta wetland reserve which attracts more than 300 bird species.

The full-board cruise price includes complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks at lunch and dinner plus excursions to Nuremburg, Koblenz – with a cable car trip to its Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, Wurzburg and the Residenz Palace, plus tours of Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Constanta.

Guests start or end their cruise with a stay at the five-star Sheraton Hotel Bucharest for one night, so they can further explore the city.
