Avalon Waterways Storyteller Series

Diana Gabaldon

Avalon Waterways has announced plans to bring back author of the No. 1 New York Times-bestselling "Outlander" series, Diana Gabaldon,to personally host a Storyteller cruise on the Danube River in 2024. For a week, a small group of fans will have the opportunity to enjoy Outlander insights with their favorite author while sailing through the storybook settings of Central Europe.

“In April 2024, guests are invited to join Diana in Prague for a memorable two-night stay – including visits to OUTLANDER film sites from Season 2 of the STARZ series – before boarding the Avalon Impression for a seven-night Danube Dreams cruise from Deggendorf to Budapest,” said Pam Hoffee, president of Avalon Waterways.

“For a week, this renowned storyteller will share an inspired cruise – and daily excursions – with an intimate group of her fans, participating in an onboard book-signing, Q&A, Happy Hours, dinners and so much more, while sailing through the picturesque landscapes of Europe.”

Danube with a Side of Storytelling

Winding through multiple countries, capital cities and thousands of years of history, the legendary Danube is the setting for some of the most dramatic chapters in time – and provides the perfect setting for Diana Gabaldon and fans of her award-winning, historical fiction novels and television series. As the river, Rieslings and pilsners flow, countless treasures await Outlander fans at every port. From the harmonious streets of Vienna, the castle- and vineyard-clad hills of the Wachau Valley and the Baroque beauty of two-ancient-cities-in-one Budapest, guests will delight in retracing the steps of explorers, emperors, monarchs and musicians along the story-rich Danube.

Godmother of the Avalon Tapestry, Diana Gabaldon has hosted two other fan cruises for Avalon guests while serving as the inspiration for the company’s Storyteller Series of cruises which have now featured other, inspired celebrity hosts including authors Cheryl Strayed, Gillian Flynn, Candace Bushnell, Christopher Moore and band, Sister Hazel.

“For decades, Diana has added to the storytelling tapestry of our lives while also inspiring travel with her literature,” said Hoffee. “As both a godmother and a treasured host of our Storyteller Series, it’s our great pleasure to welcome her back on board with an intimate group of her fans.”
