With a Daddy Cruise you get to travel with a bunch of friends. We gather an active, energetic group of 30-to-100+ people: all ages and races, including Daddys, boys, and others. Your on-board host insures you get to meet and mingle with the group.
You get to know people even before the ship leaves. There's a private Facebook page so you can meet others in advance. We'll also gather for pre-cruise virtual events, where you'll discover more about the excursions you may take, get your questions answered, and start interacting with your new friends.
You get to make a difference. Each cruise includes an optional day of service to a local group in need, such as participating in a food drive for a local LGBTQ center. You can have a transformative experience—as well as an enjoyable vacation!
CHRISTMAS MARKETS ON THE DANUBE RIVER 2019
Viking Longship Ingvi—Passau, Germany to Budapest, Hungary
Dec 4-11, 2019
Come join our intimate and super-friendly group of Daddies, admirers and friends aboard the Viking Longship Ingvi for a special holiday Danube River Cruise. Sailing in early December means we get to visit two of the most renowned Christmas markets in Europe—Vienna and Budapest—and still have time to check out Slovakia's capital Bratislava and one of Bavaria's oldest cities, Passau.
We sail out of Passau, Germany on the lovely Viking Longship Ingvi (not sure where the name comes from; maybe Ikea built it??). Viking Cruises was voted the #1 river cruise line by Condé Nast Traveler in their 2017 Readers' Choice Awards. CruiseCritic awards the Ingvi 4 out of 5 stars and says the first thing you notice upon boarding is all the natural sunlight—yes, views from anywhere on board will be great! Cruiseable.com awards 4.5 out of 5 stars, and past guest reviews average 4.75 out of 5—so you're gonna love this ship! And you can feel good knowing you're on a "green" ship with hybrid diesel-electric engines that burn less fuel and produce 20% fewer emissions. Solar panels on top help fuel the engines and the ship's chef even maintains an organic herb garden up there!
Because we spend so much time in port, the focus is more on the destinations, and less on the actual sailing. That's why shore excursions in each port are included in the price of this cruise! There's no gym on board (you'll get your exercise exploring the fabulous cities and towns we'll visit). No theater with huge Broadway-style productions because you'll still be in port checking out the local nightlife instead! That said, you'll still have plenty to appreciate on board. Service is top notch! Meals on board are fantastic (and typically much better than what you expect on ocean cruises). The décor throughout is understated and minimalist. Little touches everywhere will amuse, pamper and amaze you.
Exclusive extras for our group only:
Let's Cruise Away Welcome Aboard Cocktail Party (with free cocktails!)—come meet your fellow Daddies and friends in a warm, welcoming, and casual atmosphere. Play our fun mingling/get-to-know-you activity, and start forging friendships that will last a lifetime.
Free Welcome Aboard gift for each guest
Onboard Host/Cruise Director—I'll be there to make sure you have a great vacation.
