President's Invitation: Magical Danube & Prague

Budapest-Franz-ZwicklLimited Space Left on One-Time-Only River Cruise!

The majestic blue Danube—no other river in the world flows through as many countries. And now, I want to personally invite you to join my wife Lori and me on Magical Danube & Prague (Sep. 12-23, 2015), a very special land tour and river cruise chartered exclusively for CTD travelers. By land and by ship, we'll discover four capital cities in five countries, several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and wonderful scenic, cultural, rural and culinary experiences too numerous to count!

Wachau RegionFirst, we'll immerse ourselves over three nights in Prague, the famously gorgeous city whose 600 years of architecture remains unsullied by war or disaster. Then, we'll board the amazing MS Amadeus ELEGANT. Like a floating luxury boutique hotel, this thoroughly modern river cruise ship is the perfect way to experience this region. Spend days marveling at Europe's most beautiful landscapes, and evenings docked so you can take in the night life of its magnificent cities—including Budapest, Vienna, Linz, Bratislava, and more. We'll explore centuries-old towns, castles, countryside settings and cultural sites—all arranged specifically for our group. We'll head off the beaten path to meet local farmers and craftspeople—a CTD tradition. And, we'll enjoy ship-board entertainment, educational, and culinary activities to maximize our enjoyment and cultural experience.

We insisted on this particular date, prime time for this part of Europe, and this amazing ship. With just 73 staterooms (all outside facing, with windows), the ELEGANT offers an intimate atmosphere perfect for making friends, but with the full service and amenities of a first-class ship. And, we've thrown in so many inclusions, excursions, options and ship-board activities that most companies don't offer – from round-trip airfare to all gratuities, from wine with every dinner to complimentary bicycles while ashore – you'll just love the value and convenience.

Space is limited and many cabin classes are already sold out. Unlike other trips, once this program is sold out, we will not be able to add capacity, cannot run the trip again in 2016, and I don't want you to miss out! 

For more details, please contact our Discoveries Team at 855-744-8747 (toll-free US/Canada), or find the complete itinerary with port times, information about river cruising, and ship details including a map, cabin layouts, video and photo gallery, and more at

Lori and I hope to see you at the opening private dinner in Prague where we'll "break the ice" so that we can travel together as friends (another CTD tradition). We'll look forward to traveling with you soon.
