Exclusive for Mail on Sunday readers: Cruise the Danube with Strictly’s Anton and Erin – meet the TV stars and see them perform live on this magical voyage
The next series of Strictly Come Dancing, due to hit our TV screens in September, will be the 18th run of the UK’s favourite dance show.
Only one professional dancer has appeared in every series and that’s the ever-popular Anton du Beke, who finished as runner-up last time out.
If you have always wanted to meet Anton and see him perform live, then this is your chance to join him and his long-term dance partner and fellow Strictly favourite Erin Boag – on an exclusive eight-day Danube river cruise.
On this cruise, guests will enjoy a guided tour of Budapest, pictured, and see other cities on the Danube
Travelling on a stylish Emerald Waterways Star Ship, you will sail from Passau with stops at Linz and the Unesco World Heritage-listed town of Cesky Krumlov.
You’ll pass terraced vineyards and apricot orchards on the way to Melk, before visiting three of Europe’s great capitals – Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest.
You will see Anton and Erin perform at an intimate and historic venue in the Austrian capital, plus the pair will take part in a special dance masterclass on board.
Anton and Erin will also host an entertaining Q&A session, during which you can ask them about their lives and careers and find out what goes on behind the scenes on Strictly.
One Mail on Sunday reader, who enjoyed this special trip when we previously offered it, said: ‘It’s been such a wonderful experience seeing Anton and Erin perform. I cannot imagine anything better.’
