Our cruise started in Bucharest, Romania, where we went on a four day tour of Transylvania before our cruise. this tour was very good and we highly recommend that people do this if you have the time. We visited some beautiful towns and castles in the mountainous centre of Romania. After returning to Bucharest, we joined the rest of the guests for dinner in the Marriott. The next day we were bussed to the river but we were unable to go to Constantia on the Black Sea because the Danube River level was too low. The next day we started our shore visits to various countries which was extremely interesting. We had 3 different concerts on shore which were all wonderful and also other musical entertainment and dancing groups on board. The food was excellent and the lounge was a great place to meet and talk to others and do trivia competitions etc. Our cabin was a verandah cabin and it was extremely comfortable. We continued to have worries about the low water level and eventually we were stopped by local police and unable to go any further about 80km before Budapest. The next 2 days were spent on a bus but we were still able to do everything in the itinerary. We were then moved to a beautiful hotel in Vienna, the Kempinski for the last 2 nights. Scenic paid for all our meals as though we were still on board the ship. They did their best to minimise the impact of the shorter ship journey and the crew were wonderful!

Highly recommend this Danube Delta Discovery cruise with Scenic.
