    Cool Cruiser
  1. We will arrive in Budapest around 8am next Friday and cannot board our boat until 4ish. I had planned out some walking tours to get the lay of the city (and help stave off jetlag) but at this point there is a chance of storms. Does anyone have a suggestion for good places to go our first day where we can escape inclement weather and not just hole up in the lobby of the cruise meeting point? Our cruise will be taking us to Castle Hil and the Great Market Hall the next day.... Thanks!
  2. We are on Avalon Waterways April 13 Danube Dreams cruise. Our documents have been updated to indicate we will disembark in Passau not Deggendorf. We are planning on taking the train to Munich before flying out from Munich the following day. Is this change probably set and O should go ahead and buy our train tix? Or should I just wait and buy them the day of travel? And, does anyone know why our final port would have changed? Thank you

    Reliable wifi on Avalon waterways?

    Very informative and helpful! Thank you. I didn't even know about the international hotspots. I think that might be the best thing! Thanks!
  6. I am trying to figure out how expensive am international call plan we will need for our avalon Danube cruise next month. We needs to be able to check in with our family. Can anyone tell me how well the wifi works on Avalon Waterways ships? I'd like to be able to just use What's App for most of our conversations .... Thanks!

    Avalon waterways and jeans at dinner?

    CILCIANRQTS, I was actually trying to avoid being too wordy, not rude in my question.๐Ÿ™‚ In response to your question, I have added a lengthier explanation. I apologize in advance if you feel it still sounds like a rude American. That was not my intention. It may likely be an incorrect assumption, but I had thought I would be in a room filled mostly with Americans for the event I am inquiring about... We were on an American cruise line cruise last summer and had packed clothes for what were advertised as Country club wear dinners to discover no one dressed up and our suitcases were half full of clothes for dinner we wore the first night only.
  9. I live in a VERY casual town (Austin, TX) and actually do not own a pair of dressy slacks and my church/party/funeral dresses will most likely be too summery for April on the Danube. I would rather not have to go buy clothes for this trip that I will probably not wear again and I am planning on bringing jeans and one skirt on our April Danube cruise unless I am advised otherwise. Will it be acceptable to wear jeans to dinner most nights and the skirt to the welcome/goodbye dinners? I've tried searching posts but have not had good, recent results.... Thanks!

    Avalon daily schedules?

    Thanks. I have Dairy allergies so I have requested alternative milk and was told it shouldn't be a problem but the wording made me a little nervous I will have to learn how to enjoy black coffee :)

    Avalon daily schedules?

    Fantastic! Thanks, Foodpolice! Do you remember if they had alternative "milks" (like soy or almond) at the 24hour coffee station? Your screen name.made me think you might pay attention to that stuff๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks

    Avalon daily schedules?

    Does anyone have some daily schedules from an Avalon Danube cruise they would be willing to post? I'd like to see an example of the days. Thanks!

    Anyone else on the April 13th Danube Dreams westbound with the emphasis on the Hapsburgs? I haven't seen a roll call for it...

    April Danube cruise...How much rain?

    Thanks! Is the forecast a week out dependable? I am hoping to pack light but if the weather can swing from snow to rain that might be difficult!

    Schonbrunn Palace as optional excursion?

    Great info, thanks! We will only be in Vienna one day/night and the morning includes a guided walking tour of the main sites.
