  1. I was on the Romantic Danube cruise at Oct. 2019.. and we didn't do the Illumination cruise.. AMA has stopped it .. But there are private boats that still do it ..if you want to see it ..
  2. Make sure you have a Kase Krainer from the stand with the green rabbit on top.. and make sure you have it in the roll.. we even spent a few hours at the casino .. you need to show picture id to play.. I won 150 Euros there 🙂
  3. I just flew from Budapest to NYC ( well Newark ) and I had about 3 lbs of paprika in my check bag.. and had no problem at all . along with wine.. 🙂 Also they have a paprika paste.. they serve it with most dishes .. but I had it with goulash.. you put a spoonful on top and it melts .. but be careful. it comes in mild, med, and very hot 🙂
  4. Thanks but we are back from the cruise... and everything was great . used euros, brought back both powdered and paste Paprika in my check bag with no problems. I used my atm at 2 stops. and it was not to bad. we are planning another river cruise but on the Rhine this time.. well in a few years 🙂 now we have a ocean cruise on Dec 1st from New York City to the S. Caribbean and back .. but no flights involved.. so just buy what we want ..
  5. Now we just have to wait until Dec. 1st for our next cruise ...a 13 day ocean cruise to southern Caribbean on NCL Bliss.. 🙂
  6. Yesterday we got home from our cruise on the Romantic AMAWaterways Danube river cruise from Vilshofen to Budapest . No ship changes, no busing .. the only hold up was a glitch in one of the locks. No big deal since we were just sailing and between ports. I can't say Anything bad about AMAWaterways .. they were amazing .. we are going to plan another river cruise .. The food was wonderful, the wine flowed and we were there for Oktoberfest ..so beer, sausages, and pretzels .. AMALEA had such a great staff. 100% waited on us hand and foot ..
  7. Thank You ..with only 24 hrs until we start our flight over to Europe .. We are sure getting excited .. It will all be new to both of us 🙂.
  8. I am wondering if there a magic water level number on the Danbue from Vilshofen thru Budapest.. that will keep us sailing and not make it a bus trip ? I have been keeping my eye on the weather for this week .. and I see a chance of light rain every day . 20 % - 60 % .. so I guess we can hope that we won't have to keep packing and unpacking ..
  9. We will be leaving Vilshofen on Thurs and ending in Budapest the following week 🙂
  10. We will be starting our Romantic River Cruise in 5 days .. ( Oct. 3rd ) from Vilshofen to Budapest ... and I am wondering if the leaves have started changing color yet ?
  11. I hope you are right .. We will be on the AMALEA from Vilshofen to Budapest on the Oct.4th ( 7 days to go )
  12. Thank You.. We are looking into getting around $100 Euros from a bank here in the States .. and since my girlfriend has an acct. there may not be a fee ..just the exchange rate .. and as for Budapest .. I am not sure yet.. and since we will be flying home out of Vienna .. we will need Euros there for breakfast and gifts .. I am sure it will all work out 🙂 10 days to go
  13. I never mentioned a country.. I will be getting Euros from the atm , when we first get to Germany.. and then when we get to Budapest I will get HUF there . Most of the buying will be in Budapest .. Paprika mostly and small trinket for the grandkids . the Euros will be for food while on excursions and more trinkets .. so I am wondering if I really need to use the atm ..or just my C.C or Debit card for cash..
  14. Do you remember the price for the ferris wheel and the lift ? and thank You for this great info.
