How much is a river cruise on the Danube?

What is the best month to cruise the Danube?
There really isn't a bad time to cruise the Danube (unless there's a prolonged hot summer, which can lead to low water levels). May - September are the most popular months. Peak summer months mean larger crowds in popular ports of call, but the upside is more daylight to enjoy sightseeing.
September and October are great choices for a Danube cruise. Water levels are more consistent, crowds are smaller and the changing season means beautiful landscapes.
November and December are also a great time to experience a cruise down the Danube thanks to the numerous historic Christmas Markets held in cities up and down the river.
How many countries does the Danube flow through?
The Danube flows through 10 countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine.
