We liked the itinerary from Bucharest to Budapest. We were able to get to several countries we had not been to before. We had a lot of very interesting side trips, most of which were included and learned a lot about their history specifically what life was like under Communism. The people are warm and passionate about their countries. We got to taste some the regional food specialties and try the local liqueurs--which were interesting. The cruise boat consisted mostly of English people--I think this company has a large office in London, so we were two of 5 Americans on board. Everyday on board there was a tea time. The breakfasts and lunches were buffets but the dinner was off of a menu. The lunch buffet was interesting because the chef made regional dishes based on the country we were in, plus included salads, several entrees, desserts, and homemade ice cream--plus wine at lunch and dinner.

River Cruise on the Danube.

Cabin Review

Cabin 231
The shower was a full shower and nice water pressure. Floor to ceiling windows that lowered down half way with the click of a button. The room did not actually have a balcony but the space was actually an extension of your room with a small table and 2 chairs on the inside.
