Exclusive to Mail on Sunday readers: Dance along the Danube and meet Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag

We return strictly to our screens on Saturday, with the lineup of celebrities including Olympic hero Adam Peaty, Loose Women panelist Judi Love and comedian Robert Webb.

But one professional who won’t shine on the dance floor this year is Anton Du Beke, as ‘the King of Ballroom’ will take on his new role as a judge. However, that doesn’t mean your chances of seeing him perform live are gone.

We’re giving you another chance to join Anton and his regular dance partner and fellow Strictly favorite Erin Boag on an exclusive eight-day river cruise on the Danube.

Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag have been dancing together for 20 years and are two of the country’s favorite ballroom stars. Their charisma, chemistry and dazzling choreography have astounded audiences around the world. Anton, affectionately known as ‘the King of Ballroom’, will be a judge on Strictly Come Dancing this year.

After flying to Budapest, travel on a stylish Emerald Cruises Star-Ship, with stops in Linz in Austria and the UNESCO-listed town of Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic.

Cruise past terraced vineyards and apricot orchards en route to Melk and Durnstein in Austria, after visiting three of Europe’s great capitals: Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest.

You’ll see Anton and Erin perform in an intimate and historic venue in the Austrian capital, and the couple will take part in a dance masterclass aboard your ship.

Anton and Erin will also host a Q&A session where you can ask them about their lives and careers and find out what goes on behind the scenes of Strictly Come Dancing. A reader said of our previous trip: ‘It was such an amazing experience to see Anton and Erin perform. I can’t imagine anything better.’


Sail in style: You’ll travel on an elegant Emerald Cruises Star-Ship with an indoor retractable roof pool, open-air deck, movie theater and putting green, as well as beautiful staterooms and suites. You can choose for indoor or outdoor dining. Your cruise offers great excursions in each of the cities.

Special offer: You get a £500 discount per person, as well as €200 onboard credit per couple*.
