Home >> German TV cruising the Danube

Public german TV station WDR from North Rhine Westphalia goes on a one week cruise down the Danube. They are cruising on the MS Primadonna, a catamaran, from Passau down to Budapest. Though the film is on german, it might be a good chance to refresh some memories of your cruise OR to get an idea what you are going to see if you decide to take a river cruise down the Danube.

Guest have to book every single excursion or can not join and have to explore the place without a guide. They pay 160€ (200$) for all excursion on a 7 day cruise (see minute 21:00).
