After flying to Budapest, you will board Emerald Star with stops at Linz in Austria and at the Unesco World Heritage-listed town of Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic.

MEET OUR SPECIAL GUESTS
You will be joined by Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag
Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag have been dancing together for two decades and are two of the nation’s all-time favourite ballroom stars. Their charisma, chemistry and dazzling choreography have wowed audiences around the world. Before becoming a Strictly Come Dancing judge, Anton, known affectionately as ‘the king of ballroom’, was the show’s longest-serving professional dancer.
You’ll visit three of Europe’s great capitals, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest, and watch Anton and Erin perform at an intimate and historic venue in Vienna.
The pair will also take part in a special interactive dance masterclass on board the ship.
During this memorable holiday, you’ll sail past terraced vineyards and apricot orchards en route to Melk and Durnstein in Austria.
Anton and Erin will host an entertaining question-and-answer session, during which you will be able to ask them about their lives and careers and find out what really goes on behind the scenes on Strictly. One reader said of a previous trip: ‘It’s been such a wonderful experience seeing Anton and Erin perform. I cannot imagine anything better.’
