HOOKED ON OUTLANDER? BOOK A CRUISE WITH ITS AUTHOR, CELEBRITY STORYTELLER DIANA GABALDON!

A NOVEL HOLIDAY… Bound to be the most memorable trip of 2024 (or a lifetime), author of the No. 1 New York Times-bestselling OUTLANDER series, Diana Gabaldon, is personally hosting a Storyteller cruise with Avalon Waterways on the Danube River in 2024. It’s your once-in-a-lifetime chance to sail with a small group of fellow fans and get exclusive OUTLANDER insights, with your favourite author… FOR A WEEK!

Diana Gabaldon has added to the rich tapestry of our lives while also inspiring travel with her stories. In her OUTLANDER series of novels and novellas – now an award-winning series on STARZ – she has brought to life the backdrops of Scotland, North America, France, and Germany as well as dozens of fascinating historical sites across the globe. OUTLANDER can be found in 114 countries and 38 languages, with millions of copies in print worldwide.

On April 14th, 2024, guests are invited to join Diana in Prague for a memorable 2-night stay – including visits to OUTLANDER film sites from Season 2 of the STARZ series - before boarding the Avalon Impression on April 16th, 2024 for a 7-night Danube Dreams cruise from Deggendorf to Budapest. On board your Suite Ship, this renowned storyteller will share an inspired cruise – and daily excursions – with an intimate group of her fans, including conducting a book-signing, Q&A, plus countless opportunities to interact at dinners, Happy Hours and while sailing through the winding, bending, picturesque landscapes of Europe.

Your European holiday begins with two nights in Prague, capital of the Czech Republic. Guided sightseeing will not only provide you its best-known treasures like the Astronomical Clock, Hradčany Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral, but also a customised itinerary that alternately includes visits to OUTLANDER filming locations from the series (Season 2). Then it’s on to Regensburg, one of Germany’s best-preserved medieval cities. Guided sightseeing will show you the Old Town Hall, the Porta Pretoria and many mansions whose high towers denote the status and wealth of their early owners. Then transfer to Deggendorf where your Danube River cruise begins. Passau, Germany, the “City of Three Rivers” lies at the confluence of the Danube, Inn, and Ilz rivers. Explore the city with a Local Guide and admire the patrician houses and baroque St. Stephen’s Cathedral. In Linz, Austria, see the Hauptplatz, Austria’s largest medieval square that forms the centre of the city. Enjoy the magnificent views as your river cruise takes you through the picturesque wine region of the Wachau Valley.

In Dürnstein, see the famous blue and white Stiftskirche and taste some of the local wines. Vienna, the “City of Music,” makes an immediate impression with its lavish Hofburg Imperial Palace and neo-renaissance Vienna Opera House. In Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, a guided walk takes you through the delightful Old Town and to the Gothic St. Martin’s Cathedral. In Budapest, the vibrant capital of Hungary, see the most famous sights with a local expert. In your free time stroll along the main shopping street of Váci utca, or take pictures from Fisherman’s Bastion, for the best panoramic views of Budapest. From the Golden City of Prague to the Pearl of the Danube in Budapest, your European river cruise is an experience not to be missed!
