Avalon Land-Only ending in Bucharest (Oltenita)
We have booked Avalon Balkan Discovery Eastbound, Land-Only (Cruise-Only) for next May. Our TA checked with Avalon and was told our booking did not include transport from the cruise port Oltenita to Bucharest city. That is fine, we don't mind paying for transport. But does anyone know what our options are? It seems there is a bus from Oltenita to Bucharest but that the bus station is a long walk from the cruise port, there doesn't seem to be taxis there from what I have read. I am hoping we will be able to take the Avalon bus to the Athenee Palace Hilton but haven't been able to confirm whether or not that will be possible. Has anyone done this?

Some possible taxis?

I can't imagine the ship won't be able to arrange for a taxi.
