We will be in Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, and Bulgaria for a day or less. We will be in Vienna, Austria and Bucharest, Romania for a few days (beginning and end) and plan on getting the appropriate currency for both of those countries. If I see something I want to buy I would either hit the ATM or try to use my credit card. Mostly, I was thinking about post cards, ice cream or some other small type souvenir. I am thinking of getting the US equivalent of $20 for each country but if I could just use Euros it would just be easier. Not worried that the exchange rate would not be good or that the change would be in the countries own currency. So what do you think? Get around $20 of each countries currency or take my chances with Euros?
Also, for those that did this cruise (or similar) before, did you like it? We have done the Danube (Budapest to Nuremburg) and the Rhine (Amsterdam to Basel). We thought this would be all new places to see and we get to see Transylvania and Dracula's castle! What was a highlight for you on this cruise? Any do's or don'ts's?
