Avalon Waterways Blue Danube Discovery Cruise

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Have you been considering taking a European River Cruise, but are unsure where to go?  There’s never been a better time to cruise the beautiful Danube River.  Destination Oceans and Avalon Waterways are offering a 14 Day Blue Danube Discovery River Cruise with savings up to $1,500 per room.  With pricing as low as $3,039, which includes the cruise and land, this is a cruise you can’t afford to miss.

Your cruise vacation begins when you touch down in the culture rich city of Budapest, Hungary, where you will have two days of guided sightseeing.  After this, you will board your river cruise ship and head westward for the capital of Austria; Vienna.  Once here, you will have the chance to take a guided tour of the city.  Next on your itinerary is a walking tour in Durnstein to see the Baroque Stiftskirche.  Durnstein is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the Wachau region and is also very well known for their Riesling wine.  Arriving in Melk, you will have a guided tour of the Benedictine Abbey and then take part in some local wine tasting.  If wine isn’t your thing, Nuremburg will give you the option of participating in a German beer tasting, which is what Bavaria does best!  Your cruise culminates in the “Golden City” of Prague, Czech Republic, where you will have three nights to unwind and explore this history rich city with guided sightseeing as well as plenty of free time to enjoy the sights at your own pace.

Destination Oceans and Avalon Waterways will help you make this a cruise vacation a memorable one.
