Join David Fritz and a small group of invited guests aboard the finest riverboat in the world, the S.S. Maria Theresa, a 150 passenger Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection six-star riverboat on the legendary Danube River. Our cruise includes almost everything...most beverages, gratuities, tours & excursions, most meals and airport transfers.
For centuries, the enchanting Danube has cast its spell on poets, musicians and artists of all kinds. And in 2017, it will cast its spell on you even more as it is the year marking the 300th anniversary of Maria Theresa’s birth, the namesake of your stately ship, the S.S. Maria Theresa. Travel through the very places Maria Theresa ruled for over 40 years on this regal journey.
Exclusive celebratory events both onboard and onshore will be plentiful. In Vienna, where Maria Theresa resided, experience “Morning with the Masters” with exclusive early-morning entrance to the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Go on a private guided tour of one of the most prestigious museums in the world, home to the royal Habsburg family’s numerous treasures as well as countless major works of art, including Raphael’s Madonna in the Meadow, Vermeer’s The Allegory of Painting, and the Infanta paintings by Velázquez. Conclude your tour with a Bellini cocktail served in the stunning temple of art. That same evening, attend an exclusive private “Royal Anniversary” concert celebrating Maria Theresa at a UNESCO-designated Viennese palace.
You will also experience delightful Salzburg, Dürnstein, Passau and Linz. And all along the way, delve into the flavors of the region with events ranging from an organic wine tasting of the Wachau Valley’s Rieslings to a saffron workshop.
