Trip Report Just Returned from a Gate 1 Danube River Cruise

Jump to last reply

We recently completed a Gate 1 Danube River Cruise with a 3 night pre-cruise extension in Prague and a 2 night post-cruise extension in Budapest.

In Prague, we stayed at the 5* Hotel Imperial, a lovely hotel only a few minutes walk to the Old Town Square. Rooms were on the smallish size but quite nice. The breakfast buffet was extensive and there were many restaurants in the area.

In Budapest, we stayed at the 5* Hotel Corinthia, an amazing hotel in the heart of the city. Our room was quite large in comparison to the Hotel Imperial and everything about this hotel was topnotch.

We were bussed to Nurnberg on the 4th day where we boarded the MS Sound of Music, our home for the next 7 nights. We were on the middle deck (No. 2) and had a large window that opened, which we enjoyed both for sightseeing and ventilation at night. We paid an extra $250 pp over the base fare for this cabin.

The MoS is not what I would consider a “luxury” ship but the prices are lower than those companies and I felt we got a great deal. Service was excellent and the food was good and plentiful as was the wine and beer. Entertainment onboard was varied and mostly excellent.

We had local guides at each port (Nurnberg, Regensberg, Melk, Vienna and Budapest) and they were all excellent.

We paid for the Gate 1 airport transfers and everything went smoothly on that end as well.

Considering the price we paid for this trip, I would not hesitate to travel with Gate 1 again.
