Avalon Waterways – Capitals Of Central Europe [Video]


I recently traveled with Avalon Waterways (a Globus family brand) on their Capitals of Central Europe itinerary. It was a beautiful 10 day trip from Prague to Budapest on the suite ship, the Avalon Panorama. The Avalon Panorama is pretty much a mobile 5 star hotel.

Review: Luxury Cruising

By Lucy Fernandez, Owner

As an owner of the Fernandez family’s Affordabletours.com, I’ve been fortunate these past 10 years to experience many, many remarkable travel opportunities, from tours to river cruises, to ocean cruises.
