Ultra-Luxury Lower Danube River Cruise ’23

May 14, 2023 7 Day River Cruise Budapest to the Iron Gates and Back



River cruising is a treat for the senses, allowing you to see, touch, feel and experience the world like never before. Sit on the intimate, open-air upper deck as you pass by lovely landscapes and lively locales – breathe in life and know. These are moments you will never forget. Enjoy an Earl Grey at teatime or perhaps a Taittinger rosé for a sundowner, while marveling at the engineering feat of the locks. When on land, immerse yourself in the culture of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Back on board, enjoy the culinary specialties of the regions you just explored. Unpack once and delight in a million memories. A river cruise with Riverside Luxury Cruises means getting lost in the world and finding yourself.

When you step off our beautiful ships you step back into history, or into a hands-on experience or out on an adventure that will get your heart going. Lovers of art, architecture, music, nature, food, wine or simply relaxing, will be inspired by the outings and experiences we have curated to woo and wow you.


Check in and experience unparalleled luxury. Astonishment in every suite. The finest materials at every turn. There is incredible amount of space to spread out and enjoy.

A river cruise aboard the Riverside Mozart means luxury, local culture and loving life. No sense is left untouched. Dine in one of the first-class restaurants. Decompress in the spa with sauna and massage. Discover another world on an excursion. Or simply delight in an Earl Grey or a Taittinger on the Vista Deck as you sail serenely through the landscape of the Wachau Valley. It’s one big treat for the senses.

Time ticks differently on the Riverside Mozart, as does the ship itself. It sets the standard for true luxury on the river. Enjoy suites instead of staterooms, the smallest alone measuring 215 square feet (20 sqm), while the Owner Suites deliver an expansive 883 square feet (82 sqm). No other river cruise ship on the Danube offers so much space combined, with a suite to crew ratio of 1:1. The service on board is exceptional, catering to standards enjoyed in luxury hotels the world over. When it comes to styling, different tastes can certainly divide opinion – but this ship is without a doubt uncompromisingly beautiful.



No matter which suite you choose, you will always make the right choice. While they differ in styling, size and subtle nuances, with every suite you will enjoy: Fine materials such as leather and velvet, elegant marble bathrooms and king-size beds – plus a casual sofa or cozy armchair in which to relax. Wherever you look, you will see soft colors in the furniture and artwork, as the designers were inspired by nature and the different colors of the Danube. In every suite, your butler will ensure every cruise is a personal masterpiece.

The great composer created a feeling of space with sound. Guests can enjoy spaciousness in the suite carrying his name. It offers over 645 square feet / 60 square meters – and the same services as the Owner’s Suite. Masterful details include a French balcony, marble-framed fireplace and mini-bar. Black-and-white photographs and small sculptures lend an artful feeling to every room. The king-size bed looks upon the mighty Danube. Waking up to this view is simply wonderful.

Seahorses enjoy the peace and quiet and like to retreat. And guests can do just that in our Penthouse Suites on the Seahorse Deck. They are exceptionally comfortable at 323 square feet / 30 square meters and allow for three people to travel together. Like the Mozart and Owner’s Suites, they have larger bathrooms.



Luxury means having a choice. On the Riverside Mozart, the choice is yours. Four different restaurants offer genuine culinary perfection and variety. As the ship moves from port to port, the specialties on board also change, inspired by the world’s different regions. Modern interpretations of dishes from the crown lands of the former Habsburg Empire of Austria-Hungary, as well as fine Italian pasta dishes or delicious tapas
