Danube Symphony (Westbound)
August 21-26, 2025

The question really isn't to river cruise or not. Carefree cruising along the legendary waters of the world has become one of the most desirable and inspiring ways to travel. The decision, then, is where to make your splash. Do you choose by country? By sights? By cities? Unique experiences? This is what makes the Danube so dreamy – because when you choose to dip your toes into the Danube with Avalon, you choose all of the above.

Winding through ten fascinating countries, no other river offers a more encompassing view of the Old World. Yet passing clifftop castles, hillside vineyards, ancient villages, and even older forests, this wondrous waterway renews the soul. And flowing through four vibrant capital cities, the Danube is truly a bucket-list-maker's dream.

With such great depth, the Danube is just as fitting for the first-time river cruiser as it is for the seasoned and off-the-beaten-path traveler. Offering countless views, one-of-a-kind excursions, and unexpected ports of call, no one goes the distance along the Danube like Avalon Waterways. So whether you're testing the waters or diving into your next Danube River cruise, welcome aboard.
