Join Big Head Todd and the Monsters on a River Cruise along the iconic Blue Danube- Budapest, Slovakia, Vienna, Durnstein, Melk, Passau, Prague.


We will see all you great BHTM fans cruising with us on the Danube very soon. For those who were not able to join us this year, keep an eye open for future sailing adventures with the band!

Big Head Todd and the Monsters will be sailing the smooth waters of the legendary Danube River in 2019. Not only will this be one to remember as our first adventure in river cruising, but our custom itinerary from Budapest, Hungary to Passau, Germany has us sailing through one of the most highly touted regions of river cruising in the world. Combine the palaces and museums of Vienna, the castles and abbeys of the Wachau Valley, and the bier and sausage of Bavaria and you have a recipe for an amazing experience. Throw in some intimate live performances from Big Head Todd and the Monsters and it is bound to be a memory of a lifetime. The perfect opportunity to explore Budapest and Prague pre and post cruise make for an incredible European holiday with special friends.

Second 2019 Danube River Cruise Added!

Due to overwhelming demand the band will be extending their European travels and sailing the Danube for a second river cruise. The 2019 Big Head Todd and the Monsters Danube Cruise- Week Two will sail September 24 - October 1. We will be essentially sailing the same itinerary as our first week but in reverse from Passau, Germany to Budapest, Hungary. The same amazing cruise through Bavaria, the Wachau Valley, extended time in Vienna, and arriving in the exciting and scenic city of Budapest. We suggest exploring Prague for a few days prior to the cruise and will offer optional motor coach transfers from Prague to the ship on embarkation day.

The Blue Danube

Big Head Todd and the Monsters' first adventure in river cruising includes a custom itinerary which has us sailing on the legendary Danube River. Beginning in Budapest with visits to Vienna, the Wachau Valley, and Bavaria before finishing in Passau, Germany. An optional post-cruise package to Prague completes what promises to be an extraordinary adventure.

Sailing with only 166 passengers, the Avalon Impression will gently meander through the waters of the Danube providing the ultimate platform from which to view the countryside.

Experience the journey from the open air Sky Deck in comfortable spaces with your favorite beverage and great friends.
