Never been on a river cruise before; cabin #218, how are accommodations, food, and service? Can I bring wine on board, and is there a corkage fee? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Also, any recommendations for post cruise hotel and restaurants in Budapest?Hi -
Welcome to Cruise Critic!! You have picked a great itinerary for your 1st river cruise....
Can't speak to Viking yet - our 1st cruise with them is in about 90 days. There is usually no issue with bringing wine onboard - and corkage fee would only apply if you wanted to drink the wine in the dining room, or in the bar.
For hotel accommodations in Budapest - there is actually a thread devoted to that here on the forum. Lots of good advice - so perhaps you could search that out.
For restaurants, we really enjoyed Cafe Kor the last time we were in Budapest. Just a word of warning, however... the restaurant is closed on Sundays - and only accepts cash as payment.
Greetings All - this is my first post here on this forum. I too will be taking this same trip in October of this year and this will be our first river cruise. Have added the "pre" Prague thing and the "post" Budapest extension. It will be our 35th wedding anniversary and I am hoping for a special trip this fall. We will be in cabin 224.Welcome to Cruise critic!!! And, congratulations on your 35th anniversary!!
This is a great trip - I am sure you will enjoy.
One word of advice... take many layers as the weather can be unpredictable.
We did this itinerary in 2009 - but in the other direction. It was shorts and t-shirt weather in Budapest (Oct 3rd) - and it was snowing by the time we hit Prague. I dragged my husband shopping with me to buy a warmer coat!!
