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.

Visit the Christmas Markets of Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna

Browse stalls laden with tempting treats and local handicrafts at leisure as you experience the magical atmosphere at the most popular Christmas markets in Europe. Visit Budapest where Vörösmarty Square hosts the city’s oldest and largest Christmas market and then spend a relaxing day on board Spirit of the Danube en route to Bratislava.

Here, the Christmas market is usually held at the Main Square and Hviezdoslav Square, and numerous stalls sit against a scenic backdrop of historic buildings. Continue overnight to Vienna and the Krippenmarkt, December market, to browse the stalls independently.

This all-inclusive festive river cruise to Europe in 2025 is the perfect prelude to Christmas, with the opportunity to do some last-minute Christmas shopping.

This river cruise operates a reverse itinerary: Christmas Markets of the Danube: Vienna to Budapest. Timings will differ.
