Accommodating 168 guests on board, the Donaustar gracefully takes passengers to the hidden treasures of the magnificent Danube with reasonable comfort and style. The vessel boasts a high standard of hospitality afloat. Let her well trained crew spoil you while you enjoy the ship's facilities, watching the passing scenery from the sun deck or swimming pool or simply relaxing in the cosy and pleasant atmosphere of the informal indoor lounge. *Please note that German is the principal language spoken on this vessel. All documents, announcements and excursions will be in German only. English, as an onboard language, will be provided for groups with a minimum of 30 passengers only.



With a relaxing atmosphere and a high standard of service your cruise on board the Donaustar is sure to be nothing less than delightful. The friendly and accommodating crew will greet you with traditional gifts of bread and salt and anticipate your every need during your cruise. There is also a doctor on board to treat minor illnesses and injuries.

The facilities on board are designed with your comfort in mind. The five cabin styles available will suite every taste. They are all outside facing with large windows from which to view the passing scenery. The Sun Deck is the perfect place to lounge and enjoy the sun and also has a heated pool and many deck chairs. If you prefer to relax indoors, the Panoramic Lounge offers beautiful views from the comfort of one of the many plush chairs. You can also pick up souvenirs in the on board shop or indulge in pampering at the Hairdressing Salon.

The spacious Panorama Restaurant comfortably seats all guests in a single sitting. The carefully prepared menus feature international and traditional dishes and are prepared with fresh local ingredients. Guests will enjoy the cosy and casual ambiance of the ship but you might want to bring smarter clothes for evening meal.

Partake in the many on board programmes offered such as entertaining evenings of traditional music and dance, bingo and live music. There are also books and board and card games available. Bring comfortable, warm clothes and good walking shoes for the many exciting excursions during your journey along the beautiful Danube River.
