THE ITINERARY

 

MS JOY - PURE JOY

Accommodating up to 138 passengers as she winds her way along the mighty Danube River to offer our guests exclusive Vegan Travel discoveries in timeless cities, the 443-foot ms Joy leads the way in spacious comfort with the most space per guest on Europe’s rivers.

With a maximum of 138 guests, the 443-foot riverboat provides more space per guest on Europe’s inland waterways, transporting fewer passengers than most longships (135 meters). Her deck plan is innovative; with a total of 67 cabins and suites, the most popular cabins tend to be the largest... The added ship length has been used to offer twenty-two 300-square-foot Master Suites – the most of any river cruise ship on any European river. To increase the amount of natural sunlight on the lower deck, 8 loft cabins that extend from the first to the second decks have been created, providing guests with an additional view; all windows in these loft cabins open.


Indescribable Comfort

We couldn’t find just the right words to describe the sumptuous new bedding and amenities we custom ordered for your in-cabin cruising comfort... 400-thread-count satin bed linens made from the finest combed organic cotton... puffy white duvets and pillows of very fine mako cotton, with a hypoallergenic vegan filling... 100% cotton blankets, temperature balancing and so soft to the skin... and thick pillow-top mattresses that lull you to sleep... along with fine vegan bath products... absorbent terry cloth robes and fluffy towels... hair dryers... but we do know they are key for waking up refreshed and relaxed for your traveling pleasure.

ARRIVAL/DEPARTURE & SHORE EXCURSIONS

We will gladly help you to book your flights, transfers and make all travel arrangements. We also work with 2-3 partner hotels at each departure / arrival city so that you can enjoy another night or two in a well-rated hotel where you can be sure a decent vegan breakfast is served in the morning.

ORGANIZED SHORE EXCURSIONS

Our ships often dock in cities for many hours, sometimes even overnight. This is to ensure that you have time to yourself on shore, to explore the cities and scenery at your own pace. But you can experience the fascinating sights and wonders of nature even more comfortably and in-depth on excursions that we and our partners organize, which we offer you as an option. 

Shore excursions are a wonderful addition to your Vegan River Cruise. With our diverse, balanced land excursion program, we want to bring new people, unfamiliar cities, fascinating cultural centers, and unforgettable scenery closer to you. We cordially invite you, at your leisure, to look over everything that awaits you – as you know, anticipation is the best kind of pleasure!

And there are many good reasons to book your excursions in advance; Vegan Travel and selected local partners offer you:

-Seamlessly coordinated programs
-Excellent value for the money
-Payment in Euros through your ship account
-English-speaking tour guides with helpful information and insider tips

The most beautiful cities have always been built near bodies of water. Come on land and experience the best view of Europe you can get. Experienced local tour guides will accompany you on an inspiring journey of discovery to the most desirable locations, introducing you to new and wonderful lands and cultures. A wireless audio system is always included, which will help you with your individual exploration on land, ensuring that you don’t miss out on any of the information provided by your tour guide.

You can decide for yourself which excursions you would like to participate in – we provide detailed and  informative excursion info packets. Whether it’s a city walking tour, shopping trip, cultural immersion, health and wellness, nightlife, or individual bicycle tours (on your own bicycle or a rental), you’ll be astonished at how multifaceted and inspiring the world on the rivers of Europe really is.

More about shore excursions and pre-/post stays etc. will be published soon.
