Avalon has new ‘Godmother Cruise’ for 2015


The Danube will be the setting for a new special interest cruise in 2015 featuring Avalon Waterways’ godmother Patricia Schultz, author of the international bestseller “1000 Places to See Before You Die.”

On this special seven-night, eight-day Godmother Cruise departing Aug. 11, 2015, Schultz will be offering fellow cruisers the chance to sit in on guest lectures about must-see destinations around the world and have their books signed as the 166-passenger Expression sails the Blue Danube from Budapest on to Vienna, Durnstein-Melk, Linz-Passau and Regensburg before reaching Nuremburg.

“Patricia has inspired thousands of people driven by wanderlust to travel the world,” said Patrick Clark, managing director of Avalon Waterways. “She was the perfect godmother and a wonderful choice to lead a cruise on the Expression in 2015.  We’re thrilled to extend our relationship with her to a group of lucky Avalon travellers — all of whom are sure to be as enamored with her, thanks to their shared passion of travel, as we are.”
