Although the focus of our cruises is mainly on sightseeing and socializing, we do like to mix in a bit of frivolity as well. With that in mind, we’re planning a couple of themed deck parties during the cruise. If you should choose to participate great, if you’d rather just be a voyeur that is totally fine as well. And the themes are…
Hometown Pride Welcome Aboard Party – Tuesday August 13th
Wear something that represents the place you call home. It could be something as simple as a cap or a t-shirt, or as elaborate as you want to make it!
Blue Danube – Sunday August 18th
Dress it up, dress it down, drag it up, make it classy or trashy, the choice is yours. It can be as simple as a colored t-shirt, or something elaborate that creatively involves the Danube.

Regretfully, there will be a change to the entertainer lineup for your upcoming Danube cruise.
Amy Armstrong will not be performing with Freddy Allen on this cruise. She is taking a break from touring and performing, while she undergoes treatment for ovarian cancer. We are thankful that her condition was identified and diagnosed at a treatable stage and are optimistic for a successful treatment regimen and a full, speedy recovery.
While we know Amy is one of a kind and that no one can replace her, we are grateful to have found two exceptional divas Emma Lindars and Alison Jiear to perform alongside Freddy Allen in Amy’s stead.
Emma has performed at countless corporate and private events, high- end functions and some of this country’s biggest and most prestigious theaters ,clubs and cabaret venues; John Partridge’s one man show ‘Stripped’ at the other Palace, David Bedella and friends at the other Palace, Live at the Apollo Victoria 80th birthday celebrations, Wiltons Music Hall, Ronnie Scott’s bar, 100 Wardour street, The Dress Circle benefit at Her Majesties Theatre Haymarket. The Ice Ball for Denise Welsh of Loose Women, Madam Jojo’s, Freedom Bar Soho, Floridita, Soho House, Archer Street, The Ned, Tramp, El Piano bar Sitges,The Make a wish ball at The Dorchester And many more.
