inches on each side; the navigation of

them showcases the Captain's skill. This

evening enjoy your first dinner on board.

example of Baroque architecture and home

to Europe's largest church organ with more

than 17,000 pipes. Return for lunch and an

Day 4 Melk - Durnstein (B,L,D): Situated

within Austria's wine-growing region,

Melk is home to an imposing 900-year old

Benedictine Abbey which features Austria's

finest Italian baroque architecture, with its

ornate gold leaf walls, 640ft Imperial Corridor

and fresco ceilings. Later the ship sails

through the spectacular Wachau Valley and

on to Dürnstein, one of the most enchanting

villages of the Wachau wine region. This

is the site of the castle where Richard the

Lionheart was imprisoned after returning

from the crusades in the 12th century.

Day 5 Vienna (B,L,D): Welcome to Vienna,

the "City of Waltzes". Today we explore

crossroads of ancient trade routes in the
