Avalon announces European cruise with Outlander author

New York Times-bestselling author and godmother to the Avalon Tapestry II, Diana Gabaldon, will exclusively host an author cruise with Avalon Waterways in 2018, the cruise line has announced.

“For years, Diana Gabaldon has added to the storytelling tapestry of our lives, inviting readers to see the world differently while also inspiring them to travel,” said Terri Burke, managing director of Avalon Waterways. “In her Outlander books – now an award-winning, original television series on STARZ – she has brought to life the backdrops of Scotland as well as dozens of other destinations across the globe.

“On the June 5, 2018 departure of The Legendary Danube cruise from Prague to Budapest, this inspiring storyteller will share an inspired cruise with an intimate group of her fans.”

The 11-day vacation will allow cruisers to experience the towns and cities along the Danube River. A three-night stay in Prague will allow travellers to experience the Hradcany Castle grounds, the city’s Jewish Quarter and the historic Wenceslaus Square; the ship then sets sail from Nuremberg for medieval Regensburg, Passau, Vienna, and Budapest, with guided sightseeing included in each city.

“This is a memorable vacation,” said Burke. “And with Diana Gabaldon as their host, sharing stories and personal insights about Outlander, fans are in for an experience of a lifetime.”
