Avalon Waterways introduced a new itinerary called “Active Discovery” that I knew I wanted to partake as my first river cruise. This type of itinerary offers the action-packed adventures and interactive discoveries which allows all kind of explorers to choose their own Avalon excursions. I decided to explore the Rhine River on an 8-day Active Discovery from Mainz to Amsterdam.

I chose this Best of Italy and Sicily with Trafalgar tour because I wanted to see Italy since it had been 13 years ago I was there and I had not been to Sicily so I knew if I got to go that was a must. My sister wanted to go to the three major cities in Italy so this made her dream come true.
