Travelling with Avalon Waterways was a wonderful experience. We travelled along the Black Sea and admired it’s incredible properties, additionally we also toured Romania and saw the spectacular Parliament building, we also saw Dracula’s Legendary Castle.

Our cruise with Avalon Waterways started on August 4, 2010 and ended on August 14, 2010. The experience was very comfortable, relaxing, and overwhelmingly enjoyable. It is a experience I will never forget, along with my tour in Romania.Feel free to view my photo gallery!
