Crystal River Cruises will sail four ‘Crystal River Getaways’ this March, April and May. Lasting four and six nights respectively, the Wachau Valley and Danube Getaways will provide a shorter option for guests who can’t commit to a full 10-night itinerary.

The Wachau Valley Getaway, sailing from Vienna to Passau, will stop in Dürnstein, Melk and Linz. Highlights include a bike or helicopter tour of the UNESCO-recognized Wachau Valley and visits to Vienna’s Imperial Schönbrunn Palace and Dürnstein’s Schloss Gobelsburg Winery. Lasting four nights, the itinerary is available for departures on March 29 and April 30.

Departing April 2 and May 4, the Danube Getaway leaves from Passau and finishes in Vienna. Along the way, guests can participate in a ‘Signature Event’ at a museum in Buda Castle in Budapest, take a culinary walking tour in Bratislava and learn about the Jewish heritage of Vienna. Crystal River Cruises’ Danube Getaway will last six nights.
