Took my first river cruise along the Danube River in Europe and I was hooked. It was with AmaWaterways aboard the AmaDolce from Nuremburg to Budapest and I fell in love with every city we stopped at but my favourite was Budapest, it is the most picturesque place to visit.
One of the best parts is that the ship only carrys around 150 people so you get to know your fellow travellers. It was so nice to dock either right in town or very close to it and no lineups to get off and on ! They even had small group walking tours (divided into slow and fast walkers so you could keep pace with your own group). Very relaxing dinners and truly an enjoyable way to see the heart of Europe. They even had free Wifi onboard so I could catch up on some work while away.
