TUI Isla River Cruise Vlogs

We cruised on TUI Isla in April 2022 and filmed a series of vlogs that are included in this post. This was our first river cruise and it surprised us in so many ways. 

We booked the Diamonds of the Danube itinerary – Budapest Overnight Hungary, Esztergom Hungary, Bratislava Slovakia, Vienna Austria, Wessenkirchen Austria, Melk Austria, Linz Austria, Passau Germany, which proved to be a very good choice!

We really enjoyed our first river cruise and will hopefully be booking another one soon.
