Danube River Cruise – We visited 5 countries

One of the major advantages of river cruising is you can sample several countries in a short time without the distraction and hassles of moving every day. You unpack once, then plan each day to be as energetic or relaxing as you wish. With AMAwaterways, all excursions are included – always providing activities at different levels. Walking tours can be experienced as active or gentle.
