Getting Started

Newmarket Holidays brings travellers to the intriguing Austrian city of Linz, where all will board the Olympia in time for an evening meal. Often there is time for guests to go ashore for a brief visit in this beautiful city, where the Danube curves and changes direction, before the Olympia slips away for an overnight voyage.

Along the Way

The Danube flows through some of Europe’s most stunning landscapes and remarkable cities, accompanying this cruise with sights that are definitely not to be missed. Some of the more remarkable stops include:

  • Captivating Vienna
    Vienna, considered the world’s capital of music[na2] , was home to some of the most famous composers of all time, such as Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn and Mozart. Here, an optional guided tour introduces guests to the former imperial residence, Hofburg Palace, St. Stephan’s Cathedral and other historic sites, allowing time for shopping.
  • Unforgettable Budapest
    Every guest will want to be on deck as the Olympia pulls into Hungary’s “twin” capital of Budapest. This beautiful city straddles the Danube, with lavish architecture on one side of the river and  commercial interests on the other. An optional guided tour takes guests on a romantic journey to enlightening museums and historical sites, as well as more modern stores, coffee houses and restaurants.

The Best of Days
This Newmarket Holidays cruise of the Danube offers a view of many stunning sights, taking the time to visit some of the most intriguing cities. On the sunniest days, guests will have a dramatic view as the Olympia sails along the river, from the ship’s Top Deck. The ship finally returns to Linz, where passengers disembark and board ground transportation for the return trip home, taking a boatload of memories with them.
