Majestic Capitals Of The Danube Cruise Review

“This cruise is short and sweet; the perfect romantic getaway to keep you holed up and tucked away from the Christmas chaos, but still able to make a timely return to the ones you love during holiday season. The itinerary of activities was lovely – we saw everything we expected to and more. Overall, it was a really peaceful time; I would definitely recommend.”
