Question: On the Danube river cruise is there a stateroom with a veranda and how much different in price?
Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
Avalon River cruise on Danube was all that we expected and more.
Avalon Waterways was terrific all around. The cruise director was professional, friendly, helpful, and a great communicator. Everything was flawlessly organized. The ship was new, spotless, and the cabin we stayed in was small but well laid out with lots of storage. We didn't need anything more. The entire staff was friendly and professional. I would highly recommend Avalon Waterways and would definitely take another trip with them.
