How our discounts work

On all cruises we set aside a number of cabins within each level at a discounted fare, with the highest discount of 35% for ocean cruises and 25% for river cruises available on selected levels. These cabins are sold on a first come, first served basis. As cabins are sold, the discount begins to reduce, and continues to reduce until those selected cabins are sold.

This means that the earlier you book, the higher the chance of securing a greater discount. Our price panels clearly show the full cruise price, along with the current discount fare.

Please note: During busy periods for holiday bookings, the early booking discount can reduce rapidly. We recommend that you book early to benefit from the best booking discounts and to secure your preferred cabin.

When promoting new cruises for the first time, we contact customers on our Advanced Registration list first, allowing then to secure the cabin of their choice and benefit from the best savings. Our brochures are then sent out to loyalty club members first, followed by past cruise goers and then everyone else.

Enjoy the celebrations aboard Spirit of the Danube

Celebrate Christmas and the New Year amid the beautiful wintery riverscapes of Austria, Germany, Slovakia and Hungary. Enjoy the festive atmosphere, mulled wine and traditional Christmas dinner on board Spirit of the Danube, ringing in the New Year with on-board celebrations.

Cruise through the UNESCO-listed landscape of the Wachau Valley and stop to visit the elegant cities of the Danube when the streets will be decorated with lights and fir trees, and the historic squares will play host to traditional Christmas markets.

Look forward to walking tours in medieval Regensburg and in the Bavarian town of Vilshofen, where you can also enjoy an included Bavarian music concert with traditional Bavarian food. See Benedictine Göttweig Abbey on an included excursion from Krems before spending New Year’s Eve in Budapest, where another included tour will reveal highlights such as St Stephen’s Basilica.

Cruise the scenic Danube Bend to visit Esztergom, then return to the elegant Austrian capital. Pass Vienna’s historic Ringstrasse on an included coach tour, then stop to explore attractions such as St Stephen’s Cathedral on foot.
