M/S River Governess

We are excited to advise that we will be replacing the Navigator with the River Governess (formerly Monarch Governess) on our Danube Cruises in 2022!

This is an upgrade  as the Governess has all French Balcony cabins on Middle and Upper decks. Staterooms are 172 ft² compared to 150 ft² on Navigator.

***All dates, prices, and day by day itineraries remain the same
