The Pearls of the Danube Plus Prague

One of the best ways to see Europe is by boat on a luxurious river cruise. Sit back and relax on the Danube river as you sail through the picturesque countryside of Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. The beauty of a river cruise is that the ship is small and intimate with only 170 guests and all of your food and most drinks on the ship are included! If you have ever wanted to do a river cruise, this one is very affordable for an incredible itinerary! Before the cruise begins, spend time in gorgeous Prague!

Your Ship: Croisi MS Vivaldi
Built in 2009 the MS Vivaldi is a beautiful river cruise ship. With just 88 cabins, the experience on board is intimate with excellent service at every turn.

Your Host: Stan and KK Ellis
Stan’s first international travel was in 1964 as a seventeen year old high school AFS exchange student to Brazil. Thus began his love for Brazilians and Brazil. KK traveled in Europe with her family after high school graduation. Thus began her love of travel. With Church service we lived in Brazil for over seven years. Our love for Africa began in 2014 and grew over the three years we lived and served there. Our home was in Johannesburg, South Africa, and we served throughout southern, central, and eastern Africa, plus the islands in the Indian Ocean. We love the people, the beautiful lands, and the amazing wildlife. Our most memorable journey was our seven and a half month trip around the world in 1972-73. We took the year off from school between college and law school, packed up our almost-two-year-old daughter, and set off. Our itinerary included Puerto Rico, British Virgin Islands, Brazil, Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Israel, India, Nepal, Hong Kong, China, Japan, and Hawaii.
Cruises are a favorite way to travel. We have been blessed to cruise a number of times in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, the Baltic, Alaska, Hawaii, and the Amazon. We have nine terrific children and 38 grandchildren.
