Sail Date: Aug 2021
Cabin:
dinning on the Terrace in Budapest

We tried to take a river cruise in the summer of 2021 after several of our planned trips were cancelled. I really didn't believe until the last minute that this cruise would be a "go" due to Covid. Luckily Hungary just allowed Americans to enter the country for a cruise. Our trip ended in the Netherlands just before that country closed its doors to Americans. We were really lucky.When we first got to the boat in Budapest, I almost cried since I had been looking forward to a vacation for a long time.

The boat was spotless and followed all Covid protocols. The crew was so happy to be sailing again. They took care of us very well. The food was very good. We even enjoyed viewing the Port Talks on our cabin's TV screen while we were getting ready for dinner instead of going to the lounge.

Our cabin had a balcony which we really enjoyed.

Cabin Review

Lovely cabin. The attendants kept it spotless. They were so nice.
