Budapest, Hungary

by on Sep.19, 2015, under Happenings

It’s the first of Sep­tem­ber and we are cruis­ing into Budapest, which turns out to be a very beau­ti­ful city, par­tic­u­lar­ly viewed from from the Danube. We are in Hun­gary anoth­er for­mer Com­mu­nist coun­try, but this case not grey but vibrante becuase of its his­to­ry and gor­geous archi­tec­ture. We get lots of pho­to ops. while cruis­ing to our dock­ing point. We then have a city tour that takes us to the Palace area over­look­ing the cities of Buda and Pest, then the hero’s mon­u­ment and final­ly to the Mar­ket Hall. Budapest has won­der­ful archi­tec­ture vis­i­bible from the ship with huge his­toric struc­tures in every direc­tion, its clear in one day we are only going to scratch the surface.

Our last night is high­light­ed with a night cruise on the Danube after din­ner to view the incred­i­ble citie at night. Its a per­fect way to end our Danube cruise which was won­der­ful. We did not com­ment through­out this descrip­tion about the AMA­Sonata, our ship, because it would be redun­dant say­ing over and over again fab­u­lose. Every detail and every­thing about our expe­ri­ence on board this ship was as near per­fect as we can imag­ine. AMA has tak­en all of the things that can irri­tate a trav­el­er and elem­i­nat­ed them, then pro­vid­ed the best of what trav­el­ers want, an incred­i­ble experience.

The next morn­ing we say our final good byes to our won­der­ful cruise direc­tor, Lisi and are off to the air­port for our flight to Paris and then on to Normandy.
