Jamie Durie's 'Space Ship' European cruise: part three

17:30 AEST Sat Oct 19 2013

Scenic Tours' 15 day Jewels of Europe River cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam more than living up to all that was promised.

Two rivers and four countries had enthralled Jamie, Lisa and their fellow-passengers. They had seen some of the best things on offer in Hungary, Austria, The Czech Republic and the German towns of Regensberg, Nuremberg and Bamberg.

Everyone agreed that Scenic's state-of-the-art Space-Ship was the way to travel. It was luxury and comfort all the way, and the cuisine on board and in port was varied and delicious.

The next stop, Wurzburg, is in Northern Bavaria's Franconia region, surrounded by beautiful vineyards. Its number one attraction is the Wurzburg Residence Palace, the former home of the prince-bishops.
