We did our first river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. Everything about the trip was wonderful...the ship, the people, the food, the tours, the people, the service...did I mention the people. The crew thoroughly enjoy their jobs and have fun with passengers. They were a highlight of the trip. From the time we embarked, throughout the trip, until we left the ship in Amsterdam we were treated ...

We flew independently to Budapest and easily got a taxi outside the airport terminal doors to the Corinthia Hotel. The taxi rate is fixed by zone and I think we paid about 20 Euros (Forints not necessary) for the approximate 20 minute drive to the city centre (Pest side). The Corinthia had a room for us early in the morning, was beautiful and comfortable but we would have preferred staying ...

Bathroom was good and bath amenities were ...

Even though there were approximately only 130 passengers - EVERYONE was easy to get along with. Everything about the ship was great. The decor in our cabin (category 1) was beautiful. Although I did not realize that there are only 4 cabins that have double sinks in the bathrooms. We enjoyed having the "French Balcony" - sliding glass door. The reason that the ships do not have balconies is ...

First Time Cruiser

My wife and I took the European Jewels cruise May 9th 2009 aboard the River Empress. I will say that the entire experience, from the time we boarded the ship in Budapest and were checked in, to the day we disembarked in Amsterdam, was far beyond our expectations. The food was remarkable and the wait staff was exceptional. I have eaten in five star restaurants that didn't do as good a job as the ...
