Your clients can explore the romance of the Old World on a romantic AmaWaterways river cruise on the Danube River. They’ll sail into the heart of the continent where empires were built, kings and queens were crowned, and some of the world’s greatest music was composed and performed by the likes of Mozart and Beethoven.

During an excursion in trendy, history-rich Bratislava, passengers will admire colorful architecture, and the historic castle that became a summer home for Maria Theresa, as well as lively squares and theaters, plus quirky statues.

While in Vienna, couples can indulge in delicious cakes such as the iconic Sachertorte, available at the Hotel Sacher. This rich, dark chocolate, apricot jam deliciousness will have taste buds dancing. Celebrating its own holiday on Dec. 5, the Sachertorte came about in 1832 when 16-year-old chef Franz Sacher first created the dessert for Prince Wenzel von Metternich and his guests.

Views of Salzburg, Austria.

Dating back to the Stone Ages, Regensburg is one of the oldest medieval cities in Germany, and the largest medieval town north of the Alps. Here, passengers can stroll along cobblestone streets, stop in local cafes, and take in the Old Town—a UNESCO World Heritage site. Guests should stop by the Regensburg Sausage Kitchen, which opened in 1146 AD and is likely one of the oldest restaurants in the world. But the piece of resistance is the Regensburg Cathedral, which dominates the Old Town’s skyline, and is known as one of the most important works of Gothic architecture in Bavaria.

Have your clients indulge in these romantic cities on a 7-night Romantic Danube cruise from Vilshofen to Budapest as they sail through Austria, Germany, Hungary and Slovakia on the Danube River.
