The best of river cruising and English wines have come together to create a Danube cruise, with the award-winning, family-run AmaWaterways and leading wine producer Chapel Down.
Created by Rachel Tredwell of Not Just Travel, this 7-night experience, aboard the 162 guest AmaCerto, cruises the Melodies of the Danube itinerary, departing 13 November 2021. This celebration of wine features enhanced epicurean experiences and will be hosted by a wine expert from Chapel Down, as guests cruise from Budapest, Hungary, to Vilshofen, Germany passing through Austria’s picturesque wine producing Wachau Valley.
AmaWaterways run some 60 themed wine cruises per year – this is the first time an English winery is hosted on a cruise.
The award-winning ships offer the luxury of a boutique hotel, docking in the heart of grand capitals and fairytale villages to allow guests to enjoy moving freely throughout on or off the ship. While on board, guests get to savour locally-sourced cuisine and relax as extraordinarily passionate crew ensures every mile is travelled safely creating cherished holiday memories with family and friends.
On the special cruise in November, Chapel Down will bring hand-selected wines on board to serve during a gala meal, and will conduct wine tastings, where guests will learn about winemaking and the wines themselves. All of this is included in the price of the cruise. Guests booking via Not Just Travel will also enjoy an exclusive intimate dinner with Chapel Down’s wine host in AmaCerto’s specialty restaurant, The Chef’s Table, and a £400 per stateroom saving.
This unique cruise starts from £2,489 per person including free flights from selected UK airports and overseas transfers
