6 Highlights from an Active River Cruise with Avalon Waterways

By Amanda Williams | Posted to dangerous-business.com

I’m not new to the world of river cruising. I fell in love with the style of travel back in 2015, and have been on 4 river cruises throughout Europe since then.

I’m a fan of river cruising for a few reasons:

  4. You only have to unpack once!
