Whether you're an art lover, a foodie, a history buff, or an energetic adventurer, your Active & Discovery cruise on the Danube River offers just-right included activities and excursions to suit your interests. With Ava-lon Choice, you can select the experiences that are perfect for your preference and pace. From Classic to Active to Discovery inclusions, you can explore and experience each destination your way.

Start by exploring Budapest your way-stroll its streets for classic sightseeing with a local guide or take a bike ride through town for a different perspective, or learn something new with a leisurely walking tour to discover a few local Hungarian phrases. Attend a Medieval Knights Tournament at a Visegrad castle; see Gustav Klimt's renowned 'The Kiss' painting in Vienna. With Avalon Choice, each day is yours to spend your way. Whether you prefer browsing the art collection of the Habsburg Empire, sipping local vintages at an Austrian wine tasting, or joining a canoe excursion, your Active & Discovery cruise is packed with inclusions for every pace in every place we go. Sample cheese and beer made by Trappist monks and explore their Abbey gar-dens; take a hike to Count Dracula's prison tower; or tour Mauthausen Concentration Camp, one of WWII's most notorious sites, selecting from an unmatched variety of daily included excursions.

Join us on this Active & Discovery cruise and experience the Blue Danube your way. No matter how you choose to explore new locales-from paddling canoes to picnic views-Avalon Choice includes the excur-sions and activities to invite you to discover each destination your way. Your Active & Discovery Danube River cruise can be as active or leisurely as you like!

Avalon's cutting-edge fleet of Suite Ships grew by three in 2014! In addition to the Avalon Poetry II and Avalon Illumination, the striking Avalon Impression entered the waters of Europe's Rhine, Main, and Danube Rivers. Like its sister ship, the Avalon Expression, the Impression features two full decks of Panorama Suites with Wall-to-Wall Panoramic Windows that transform the living space into a unique Open-Air Balcony. With 200 square feet, Panorama Suites are more than 30% larger than the industry standard, affording you the incomparable opportunity to wake each morning facing the splendid passing scenery. Onboard amenities include an alternative dining option in the Panorama Bistro, an expanded fitness center, complimentary Wi-Fi access, and a spacious Sky Deck with premium lounge chairs, whirlpool, and light al fresco lunches at the open-air bistro
