Exclusive for Mail on Sunday readers: See Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag – and sail to three great capitals

Celebrities are once again battling it out on Saturday nights hoping to win Strictly Come Dancing’s glitterball trophy, with Anton Du Beke, everyone’s favourite professional, now one of the judges.

But if you’d like to see Anton back on the dancefloor, here’s your chance by joining him and his long-term dance partner and fellow Strictly favourite, Erin Boag, on a fabulous and exclusive eight-day Danube river cruise.

After flying to Budapest, you’ll travel on a stylish Emerald Cruises Star-Ship, with stops at Linz in Austria and the Unesco World Heritage-listed town of Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic.

Highlights: You’ll fly to Budapest where your seven-night deluxe cruise begins 

Stops along the way include Melk (pictured) and Durnstein in Austria


Anton and Erin on the dancefloor

Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag have been dancing together for 20 years and are two of the nation’s all-time favourite ballroom stars. Their charisma, chemistry and dazzling choreography have wowed audiences around the world. Anton, known affectionately as the King of Ballroom, still holds the record as Strictly’s longest-serving professional dancer.


After visiting three of Europe’s great capitals, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest, you’ll sail past terraced vineyards and apricot orchards en route to Melk and Durnstein in Austria. You’ll watch Anton and Erin perform at an intimate and historic venue in the Austrian capital, and the pair will take part in an interactive dance masterclass aboard ship.

Anton and Erin will also host an entertaining question-and-answer session, during which you can ask them about their lives and careers and find out what really goes on behind the scenes on Strictly. One reader said of a previous trip: ‘It’s been such a wonderful experience seeing Anton and Erin perform. I cannot imagine anything better.’


Sail in style: You’ll travel on an elegant Emerald Cruises Star-Ship which has an indoor pool with retractable roof, an open-air terrace, a cinema and a putting green, as well as beautiful staterooms and suites. You can choose indoor or outdoor dining. Your cruise will include EmeraldPLUS and EmeraldACTIVE excursions in each city, such as visiting a Hungarian folklore show in Budapest or taking part in a guided biking tour from Melk.

See Anton and Erin dance: Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag will give an unforgettable one-off performance in the unique setting of Vienna, home of the waltz. You will also join the stars for a cocktail reception and photo opportunity.
