They say bottled water is supplied in your room each day. How much? If I wanted more, what is the charge?
They provide a large bottle of water in your cabin each day - and I am sure they wouldn't charge you if you wanted an extra. It is a 1 litre glass bottle.
I seem to remember that there is hand/body lotion in each cabin. But, just in case, you can always "liberate" one from your hotel before you get on the boat.
In the French balconey room, I think it says there is a fridge. This would be for your wine or drinks? Do they supply wine glasses and an opener?
We had wine glasses, but they may have been put there because a bottle of wine was left for us. It wasn't corked (it was sparking, so had the wire and plastic "cork") so didn't need an opener. You could ask to have the wine opened at the bar - although they might not appreciate it if you drank it in the lounge. But - ask them to open it and then take it to your room (or up on the deck) and you should be OK.
I travel light and don't want to bring excess supplies if not needed. If need be, I'd rather buy what I want in Budapest, if possible. We have a couple of days ahead of boarding the ship.
Are you staying on your own in Budapest, or as part of a package? If this was arranged through Viking (or is included as part of your cruise - as it was when we did the Passage to Eastern Europe earlier this year....) then there is a Viking rep stationed in the lobby that can assist with helping you locate shops to purchase items you may want.
If you have any further questions, please post. We traveled on the Aegir in late April/early May - and it was a great experience.
