Does the ship have Wifi?

Yes, there will be WiFi onboard the ship, which is also already included in your cruise fare! Being close to shore, the connection is quite good at river cruises but internet on board can never be as reliable as on land. There will always be some level of unreliability, especially the further out to sea you sail.

Our connection relies on a cellular or satellite terminal—the best possible solution for river cruising. Due to the nature of data bandwidth and latency, as well as potential interruptions in satellite signals based on terrain and weather, you may experience slower online connections than you are accustomed to at home. That’s why we recommend to download your content such as movies, series or software updates before the cruise, so there is enough data for everyone to use the WiFi.

What is not included?

  • International Flights
  • Airport transfers
  • Any additional food or beverages obtained outside of the package specifications
  • Purchases of drinks, souvenirs, gifts and other personal items on board or ashore
  • Personal services such as spa, laundry and telecommunication charges
  • Baggage, travel cancellation and personal insurance
  • Post-cruise package

How do I get to Passau?

Passau's train station is easily accessible and is located very close to the river. The nearest airport to Passau is Linz (LNZ) Airport, 67 km away. Other airports nearby are Salzburg (SZG; 92 km) and Munich (MUC; 123.7 km).
Vilshofen is close to Passau which is why we recommend the same airports for your return flight. 

Will you offer a pre- and/or post cruise program?

Yes! We will offer a post-cruise program im Munich which would extend your stay with Vegan Travel for three days/ two nights. 

Details will be available soon. 

How can I book shore excursions and the post cruise program?

Once we finished the planning of our shore excursions, all booked guests will receive an email with a link for a separate Vegan Travel website where you can book our excursions and travel extensions. You will also be able to find the link here at the FAQs. It is highly recommended to book shore excursions prior to the cruise.
