Play Bridge & Explore

If you’re looking for a relaxed holiday with duplicate bridge, our Play & Explore holidays are ideal. Less competitive than our club standard holidays and suitable for players of all levels, these tours combine a relaxed bridge programme with smaller group sizes and beautiful destinations. Our Play & Explore collection of holidays will include at least two excursions or an activity pass in the package, making them ideal for the explorer at heart.
Set sail from the ‘three rivers city’ of Passau and embark on an unforgettable journey through the heart of Europe. Discover the delights of Strauss’ famous Danube from the comfort of MS Arena, taking time to explore scenic and historical stops along the way. Take in the beauty of the Wachau Valley as you visit the Austrian town of Melk; a cluster of terracotta rooftops among a forest of green. You can take advantage of a full day in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Vienna, plus another full day in the breathtakingly beautiful city of Budapest. Spend time in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava and wander the cobbled streets of Dürnstein on this enthralling river adventure.
During the evenings, after a superb dinner on board, we play a relaxed bridge session. There will also be some morning or afternoon sessions to compliment the cruise itinerary.
We will be sailing onboard the recently refurbished MS Arena, one of the ships belonging to our own Arena Travel River Cruise Collection. Click here for more information,
