For the best flight options we recommend to book flights via www.kayak.com

How can I book shore excursions?

Once we finished the planning of our shore excursions, all booked guests will receive an email with all details of our shore excursions. 
Usually these details are available 6 - 8 weeks prior to cruise departure. 

You will also be able to the details here at the FAQs. It is highly recommended to book shore excursions prior to the cruise. 

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 
  • Baggage, travel cancellation and personal insurance

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's so special about this anniversary cruise? 

Vegan Travel celebrates its 10th birthday in 2024 and we want to raise our glasses with our loved VT-Family! This is why we plan this extraordinary cruise with some special surprises for our guests throughout the cruise. We will have a special gala dinner followed by a big birthday party onboard, special guests, a special onboard program with baking or cooking demos, yoga, a halloween party and much more. We also already included local wines and beers and soft drinks with dinner and we even have some special surprises for our regular customers to say THANK YOU for being part of Vegan Travel!
More surprises will follow onboard the ship. :)
