Budapest to Amsterdam

On the Viking Sky

I was looking forward to this trip; we have never been on a river cruise before. The flight to Budapest was long and tiring a full 32 hours of travel counting the layover times.

We were met at the airport by red-shirted Viking representatives. Until this time I had not much of an idea how many river cruise brands there are. Our little old Viking Sky turned out to be one of the older ships on the river. New boats are more and more “glitzy” looking more like the modern floating hotels on ocean cruises.

The staff on the Sky is friendly and helpful, and seem to quickly know the 150 or so passengers by name.

Of course, my main interest is the food of the various area we are visiting.

In further posts I hope to be able to download some of the photos I’ve taken and describe more fully the experience on a river cruise.”
