Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: Europe River

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.
