FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. -- Cruise purveyor Value World Tours, based
here, confirmed its Danube River voyages to the Black Sea next year
would sail as planned through Novi Sad, Yugoslavia, where passage
has been blocked since NATO bombed several bridges in 1999.
In August, Value World's 70-passenger Balkan Beauty embarks on
the 12-night Five Capitals Cruise from Vienna, Austria, to
The Danube is "navigable" and Yugoslavia, "open and welcoming,"
said Samo Toplak, Value World president.
