Jann Arden to host European River Cruise

By Martha Chapman

Award-winning Canadian entertainer to set sail from Budapest to Prague with Avalon Waterways



Fans of Jann Arden have a treat in store:  next year she will be hosting a special sailing of Avalon Waterways’ Blue Danube Discovery cruise departing June 18, 2019.  As well as mingling with passengers, Arden will perform a private concert on board and participate in a photo op and CD signing.

Arden, who acted as Godmother of the ship Avalon Tranquility II in 2015 and hosted another cruise in 2017, is a fan of Avalon Waterways and says she’s very much looking forward to sailing with them again in the company of new friends.

The 12-day vacation starts with a two night stay in the Hungarian capital Budapest before embarkation and sailing onto Vienna, followed by the fairytale castles of Dürnstein, Austria and Germany’s baroque charms in Passau, Regensburg and Roth before disembarking in Prague, Czech Republic for a two night stay.

As well as shore excursions and the use of bikes and Nordic walking poles ashore, guests will enjoy three delicious meals daily (including regional wines and beer with lunch and dinner), nightly light entertainment and talks – and, of course, as Jann’s own concert. The cruise will be on board the 168-passenger Avalon Envision, which will be launched in 2019. The majority of accommodation is in the company’s signature Panorama suites: 200 square foot staterooms featuring marble bathrooms, wall-to-wall windows which open over two meters wide, and window-facing beds – perfect for taking in the views of medieval towns and vineyards as you sail leisurely past.

The vacation is priced from $5,153 Cdn (excluding airfare) but travellers can save up to $300 per person if they book early. Guests are also welcome to extend their stay in Europe before or after the cruise with a variety of hotel and touring packages offered by Avalon Waterways.
