|Gate 1's Monarch Queen at the dock in Budapest, a view into the stateroom and a view out towards the door of the stateroom.
It was pretty comfortable, all in all, with a smallish bathroom and a nook & table for the TV and pocket sundries etc.
|During our pre-cruise extension we visited Vadaspark, a family-owned restaurant which offers "folk" dinners. It was a great
evening with another couple, Julie/Steve and Gary, our very funny and knowledgeable tour guide for the entire 21 days. Here's
an outside web link for further info on Vadaspark just outside of Budapest.
|Touring around in Budapest; Heroes Square, Fisherman's Bastion, and the
Parliament Building are just a few sights to see. Really beautiful city and clean!
|The following pics are from around Vienna and the fabulous Schloss Schonbrunn,
the former imperial summer palace. The glamorous couple on the right appeared
to be getting married? Quite a beautiful girl and handsome man.
|Took a bus tour through the Austrian countryside near the Alps, through the area
known as the land of the lakes, heading for a tour of the Salzburg Castle. What a
beautiful country and what a fantastic rest stop cum deli/restaurant!!
|Welcome to Salzburg where you will see the "lock" bridge where couples put a lock on the chain link to
pledge their love. Also the Red Bull World shop is here with a full-sized F1 car hanging on the wall. The
view of the city from the castle battlements is stunning as the Salzach River meanders through.
|How about this deli/market?? Awesome.
