River Cruise Europe, On The Danube River to Budapest Aboard the Avalon Poetry
Prague is a Beautiful City;
I had heard how wonderful it was and enjoyed touring all the highlights of the city.
Prague Palace, Old Town and the Charles Bridge can’t be missed. We even got to go to a Czech dinner one evening that included folklore dancing and all the beer and wine you would like.
My husband George and I took a River Cruise from Prague on the Danube River.
We sailed the Danube River from Passau, Germany to Budapest, Hungary on the Avalon Waterways River Cruises on the Vessel Poetry.
The 12 day tour left from Boston, MA to Heathrow, London and then on to Prague, Czech Republic where we met the people from Globus tours.
The tour included 3 nights at the modern Prague Hilton which we liked, including the quirky slot machines.
If you won or wanted to get your money you had to call an attendant.

On the day we were to leave for the riverboat in Nuremburg we had a change of plans due to low water in the Danube River. The closest the boat could get to us was in Passau, Germany. This is something that happens on river cruises, if the river is to shallow the boat can’t get up the river and if the rivers to high the boat can’t get under the bridges.
Due to missing two cities we stayed in Passau two extra days and were given motor coach tours to Nuremburg and Regensburg. Tours of each city you visit is included with the cost of the cruise. We took the tour to Regensburg, Germany.
Regensburg is a lovely city on the river. While there we had lunch that included German sausages with plenty of time afterward to explore the city and do some shopping.
