Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara are the golden couple of ballroom, dubbed ‘Mr and Mrs Strictly’ for their incredible performances on Strictly Come Dancing.

Aljaz and Janette’s performance will be one of the highlights of the Dance Along the Danube river cruise, as the professional dance partners (and married couple) give a private evening performance at the historic Palais Niederösterreich, before joining guests the following day for an interactive ballroom masterclass on board an Emerald Waterways ship.

‘We can’t wait to dance for you,’ said Aljaz, who will compete in the Strictly 2017 final with celebrity dance partner Gemma Atkinson this weekend. ‘It will be an unforgettable evening!’

Aljaz and Janette will also be joined by the legendary choreographer and talent show judge Arlene Phillips, who will lift the lid on her extraordinary career in an exclusive Q&A.

As well as brushing shoulders with some of the biggest names in ballroom, you will also have the chance to discover some of Europe’s most beautiful destinations. Sailing on one of Emerald Waterways’ modern, award-winning river cruise ships, you will spend time exploring Vienna, Linz, Passau and Budapest, as well as visiting the stunning, UNESCO-listed Wachau valley.
