It completed our cruising on the Danube, and provided an opportunity to visit Eastern European countries that had been behind the "iron curtain" in its day. We appreciated the glimpses into the different life-styles in each country. The best part of the cruise was our fellow passengers. Almost all were open to greeting one another and extending friendships. The crew was of course, fantastic. A wonderful example of crew humor was my husband remarking to a crew member that if he had a long straw he could more easily reach the wine bottle only to have the crew member return minutes later with a long straw made by connecting a number of shorter straws! The tours provided an opportunity to see for ourselves the progress being made in each country. We were appreciative of each country and all but overwhelmed by Budapest's clean streets, buildings, buses, streetcars and structures. It was terrific.

Another new adventure with Viking!
