Flew straight to Budapest and directly on board ship. The whole experience was extremely pleasant and all members off staff faultless. Due to adverse weather conditions a lot of changes were made to individual itineraries, but they dealt with the whole problem with ease and smoothness. Our cabin was very nice, compact, but not cramped. The restaurant was very good, with a wide variety of choices to the menu. We didn't take much part in the entertainment as this was a holiday to meet up with family, so too much talking and catching up. Living 4.5thousand miles apart there is little opportunity for us to meet, so it was goo to have a drink in the bar and be together. Our shore excursions were varied, although there were times when it was a bit difficult to keep up on the walking ones. ( Not as young or as fit as we used to be!) We will definitely go again, a different route next time, but we have already booked an ocean cruise for next March with Viking.

Great trip
