Here we are again, on a venturous Danube Delta Cruise ship heading to an aquatic destination for a warm spring end, which is also the best time to visit Danube Delta. This article is about what an after Easter vacation should look like. So, for such a quest to begin, we chose five Danube river cruises for you to try.

Danube Delta Cruise

They all have the Danube Delta as a destination or even as a starting point. But, it is not just any destination. After all, this is where the great European river spills into the Black Sea. It is a place where you can probably spot the last dolphins that come up to the shores.

Start Your Cruise from Budapest

No. 5 on our list is a short introduction to the Eastern European Danube. Thus, for 10 days beginning with Budapest and debarking in Hîrșova, Constanța county in Romania, you are going to experience the descent of the river into the Black Sea.

Within the itinerary, a stop in Belgrade and a couple of Bulgarian cities will give you a sense of the Balkan Danubian life. So, we thought it’s one of the best deals for slow exploration at a very attractive price.

William Wordsworth Gets a Danube Delta Cruise

What does William Wordsworth, the 19th-century romantic poet, has to do with a Danube river cruise? Well, it is the name of a luxurious Swiss passenger vessel that sails for 14 days on a round trip, and you could treat yourself with a cruise on it. Indeed, we can imagine the romantic sight of the Iron Gates Gorge on such a cruise. Before reaching Constanța, the Black Sea harbor, a day into the wild Danube Delta Romania is included in this two-weeks escapade.

So, no. 4 in our top is a cruise you can book anytime from late April to late September. What is interesting about a return sail trip is that you get to see more of the same route. In this case, the Danube Delta is the pearl of the cruise and there is only one stop for it. However, the perk of such a short first contact is the wish to return to the Danube Delta wildlife and do some birdwatching.
