Peter Deilmann Cruises is offering four classical music cruises in 2006. Three sailings will take place on the Danube, on the 200-passenger Mozart, and one will take place on the Seine from Paris on the 100-passenger Cezanne. The Danube music program cruises will feature onboard concerts and performances in Vienna and Budapest and visits to sites of musical interest in Vienna. The cruises will sail from Passau in eastern Bavaria, situated at the confluence of the Danube, Inn and Ilz rivers. The ship’s route takes passengers to Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava and villages and small towns in Austria and Hungary.

Eight classical musicians will perform on the first Mozart sailing, April 2-9. The artists, members of the Lübecker Ensemble, play the violin, cello, clarinet, flute, piano and percussion and include vocalists. Deilmann will announce the programs for the other two Mozart sailings, Oct. 1-8 and Oct. 9-16, and the Cezanne Seine River cruise, Sept. 2-9, in early 2006.

Deilmann European river cruises are priced in dollars, and include seven nights accommodations, all meals, transfers, musical performances, sightseeing and shore excursions. Starting price for the seven-night music cruise is $2,080 per person twin for an outside cabin. Outside single rates start at $2,710.

A post-cruise package to Salzburg, birthplace of Mozart, is an added attraction to the Deilmann music cruises in 2006, which is the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth. The optional program includes transfer from the ship in Passau to Salzburg, two nights at the Salzburg Sheraton with breakfast, chamber orchestra concert with dinner at the Hohensalzburg Fortress, half-day city sightseeing tour and is priced at $490 per person double.
