Friends picked this cruise for us !
Overall, our trip from Bucharest to Budapest was excellent. The ship had great staff with excellent food & wine, both notably with local origins.
Our cabin was just 20 steps from the pool.
There were a few minor problems:
-air conditioning was sometimes poor, most notably in busy restaurant at dinner
-WIFI was intermittent, we lost WIFI for 3-4 days along the Danube- most frustrating !
-The map for Ruese, Bulgaria was incorrect; the ship was berthed off map; our walking tour was most interesting though and worthy of our efforts. People most helpful & friendly.
The itinerary included many interesting locations, with much history to see & enjoy. The guides were excellent.
-The wine tasting near Vidin was excellent.
-more time could be spent in Bucharest & Budapest on our itinerary,
Overall, an excellent itinerary and an excellent ship, the Emerald Sun.
Cabin was smart, functional & comfortable; did not spend time there !
