Avalon Waterways has been a longstanding great partner with us here at North South Travel, and we're ecstatic to announce this timeless Europe river cruise where you will be joined by the Canadian entertainer Jann Arden on their brand new Avalon Envision ship - their latest all-suite addition for 2019. Departing on June 18th, 2019, this one time sailing will begin in vibrant Budapest, Hungary, then sail along the Danube River with exciting stops in Austria and Germany.
During this cruise, Jann will sign CDs and will hold a special musical concert on board!
Vienna, Austria, offers stunning St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Habsburg Palace, and the Vienna Opera House. In occasion of this special cruise, a concert in Vienna will be included for all. In the heart of the Wachau wine region is Dürnstein, a 16th-century town with charming cobblestone streets and the baroque Stiftskirche with its luminous blue façade. Enjoy the magnificent views of the Wachau Valley wine region, visit Melk’s magnificent Benedictine Abbey, and sample local wines on board ship.
You’ll love a guided walk through Passau, with its narrow streets and beautiful Patrician houses. Further up the Danube River, you’ll come to the medieval walls of Regensburg—the only German city not bombed during WWII. Your last stop is the 1,000-year-old city of Nuremberg, where you’ll marvel at the medieval fortifications, extraordinary gothic churches, and the Imperial Castle.
