Review summary

A GOOD trip overall. The trip was scheduled as a 40th Anniversary celebration with another couple from the same town we live in. Airline reservation had us getting to Budapest via completely different routes and flights and arriving at different times instead of traveling together. (BAD) As a Captain of a major Airline for 40 years, I can promise I will NEVER fly on Air Canada Rouge again. They were 4 for 4 on TERRIBLE Service with the worst on the last flight. Rang the flight attendant call button 4 times, to get a cup of coffee and was finally meet with the statement from the flight attendant that "You can go to the back galley and get your own coffee". I was in row 14 of a Boeing 767-300. REALLY ?

Getting there was FAIR at best. Airline reservations were mixed up and cost us an extra $860.

Smaller than expected, especially the shower. I'm 6'5" and it was rather interesting getting into and out of the shower.

Ship tip

Pack light.

The recommended Tauk Tauk tour was great. Those hybrid motorcycle/golf cart was perfect for getting around and getting into and out of the tourist sites. Peter and Stephen, the Viking representatives at the NY Palace hotel did a great job.
