2020: Heart of the Danube (Westbound) (WBF) - Artistry II

13 days Budapest to Mainz

This European river cruise through Hungary, Austria, and Germany begins in the Hungarian capital of Budapest and sail to Vienna-the 'City of Music.' You'll marvel at the sights with a guided city tour of Vienna's gilded landmarks-including the Imperial Palace, the world-famous opera house, and stunning St. Stephen's Cathedral. Sail to Durnstein to walk in the steps of Richard the Lionheart. You may choose a guided hike to the castle where he was held during the Crusades, and behold the brilliant view of Austria's Wachau Valley from above. Next, the magnificent Benedictine Abbey of Melk awaits, with its frescoed ceilings, sculptures, library, and ornate pipe organ. Join us on board for a wine tasting of Wachau Valley vintages.

You'll cruise to Passau for guided walking tour of Germany's 'City of Three Rivers.' Visit the Bavarian town of Regensburg to see medieval sights, and join us for a beer tasting on board. In Roth, take a guided tour of the town; guided sightseeing in Nuremberg, or a tour of the notorious Nuremberg Rally Grounds. Join a guided excursion and tour of Munich to see Nymphenburg Palace-former home of the German monarchs. In Bamberg, enter a world where imperial dynasties lived with a guided tour of its Romanesque cathedral amid the seven hills crowned with churches. Enjoy a beer tasting on board before sailing for the quaint Bavarian town of Volkach. Visit Kitzingen in Bavaria's largest wine-producing area to hear the legend of the town's beginnings. Wurzburg will delight you along the famed Romantic Road, followed by a visit to a Bavarian Main River Village. Your Danube River cruise concludes in Mainz.

    Booking your Vacation with Air
    Our volume buying power saves you money. We may be able to provide you with flight arrangements from your gateway city. Avalon Waterways offers 2 air options: Flex Air and Instant Purchase Air. Early Airfare Price Guarantee locks in a price that is guaranteed not to increase. Air pricing and schedules are available approximately 330 days prior to last travel date in the itinerary. At that time the best air price will be utilized and a new invoice with the air cost and confirmed schedule will be sent. The identity of the carrier, which may include the carrier?s codeshare partner, will be assigned and disclosed at this time. If the guaranteed price is the lowest, the schedule with the lowest fare per contracted classes of service will be booked. Any voluntary change to the confirmed flights negates the guaranteed price and is subject to air pricing at the time of the change.

    Guaranteed air-inclusive prices - air is only available to passengers traveling from the United States and only available when booked in conjunction with a land vacation. An additional non-refundable air deposit of $300 per person is required for Flex Air booked in conjunction with any land vacation (i.e. air-inclusive vacation). Air can only be booked by Avalon in conjunction with a vacation package. Instant Purchase Air requires air payment in full at time of booking (i.e. air-inclusive vacation) plus a non-refundable per person service fee of $30 (North/Central America), $50 (Europe/Middle East) or $80 (all other international destinations). Once booked, Instant Purchase Air is non-refundable, and non-changeable. Some vacations may only offer one Air type option. However, once your airfare is confirmed and Avalon has received your full air and land deposit, your air-inclusive vacation price is guaranteed.

    Air-Inclusive Vacations - Applicable Taxes & Fees
    Air-inclusive vacations include government-imposed taxes and fees applicable at the time of booking and will be shown as a Total Amount. Additional airline fees for baggage may apply. At the time of booking your air-inclusive vacation online, carrier Websites will be provided to check baggage fees, or you can visit www.iflybags.com for up-to-date baggage pricing/restrictions. For return travel from some countries, international travelers are required to pay entry and/or exit fees at the airport. These fees will be collected by the local government and are payable by the traveler at time of travel. Your confirmation booking information will contain information about these fees.
