FAIRPORT CONVENTION BEAUTIFUL BLUE DANUBE
AND DANUBE DELTA RIVER CRUISE

29 SEPTEMBER - 8 OCTOBER 2021

Enjoy an unforgettable music filled 8 night cruise from Bucharest to Budapest taking in the Danube Delta. How about a Beatles singalong, or even getting up to do a Beatles karaoke with the Fairports as your backing band? Wouldn’t that be a video to impress friends and embarrass the grand children!

Peggy is threatening to tell a few tales which couldn’t be included in his recent book ‘Off the Pegg’, and Gerry might teach you how to play the cajon, whilst Ric and Chris are planning solo and duo sets. And…. who could have expected this …. a couple of band members would like to demonstrate their abilities in performing magic tricks and stand-up comedy!

This is a once (or maybe twice!) in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy ‘up close and personal’ the many and varied talents of Simon, Peggy, Gerry, Chris and Ric, and they are as excited as we are about the 6 evenings of on board entertainment being planned.

There will be songs old and new from the Fairports of course, but so much more as well aboard the newest addition to the Amadeus Fleet ~ The MS Amadeus Star, your luxurious floating home from home. With only 150 guests on board, it's more like a floating boutique hotel. You really don't want to miss this ....

Excellent range of excursions to suit various interests and abilities along the lovely river journey. And to top it all, we were entertained by the amazing Show of Hands, Flossie, and Broom Bezzums!

    Good music, good company, good food, and good ships - what’s not to like? Oh, and the organisation is very good as well and that’s very important. My trips so far have not been the cheapest but they have been excellent - they wonderfully illustrate why value-for-money is so much better than cheap. Roll on the next one!
