... We had one more dinner together, the night we were leaving Budapest. This was one of the nights they offered Sun Deck dining .. and what could have been nicer than sailing away in a beautiful sunset … with your friends !! One of the other 2 tables up there was a group ... of 4 people from Boston... so, as a finale, one of those fellows suddenly broke out into “O CANADA” .. and of course we all joined in. He had a magnificent voice and, believe it or not, even knew all the “new” lines …….. said it was because he goes to all the hockey games !!! Both the Hotel Manager and the Restaurant Manager came rushing up the stairs to see what was going on and to join in. What fun.
Thank you also for all your help in planning / “implementing” the trip. It was a pleasure working with you. Ulrike, in your Group Department, was also a great help throughout, and did a wonderful job of coordination…. Always friendly, always helpful, and always patient.
In looking over the 2010 list, I think I would like to try the 17-day “Paris and the Heart of Europe” .. from Vienna to Paris, on the Princess…. August 15, 2010.
Look forward to talking to you …….

The experience exceeded all of our expectations,7/9/2008
Tony was the cruise director and he was unbelievable. I think he could write a book on European history without looking at any reference notes. Rudy the new hotel manager was a classic. The whole crew was very friendly and we developed ... great friendships on board.
When people ask me about the “cruise”, I tell them it is actually not a “cruise” but more of a very easy way to see wonderful cities, villages and learn the history of these areas, without the normal hassles of traveling. Unpack only once, your hotel goes with you, the food is always good, the staff becomes your friends and someone else is handling nearly all of the details.
Great experience. Thanks.
