Subject: Re: European river cruise
Hi Ziners ...

Catching up on email and noticed this thread. We just returned yesterday from a two week Vantage riverboat cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam and were delighted. The river water's in Europe are just fine but I will warn all regarding the weather. Central Europe is having one of the chilliest summers in a long time. In fact, many Europeans say they are still waiting for summer to begin. We saw some high 70's in Hungary and Austria but north of there, the temperatures were mostly in the high 60's with some lower 70's. The last five days were overcast with some rain. However, we did have one full day of sun in Amsterdam which is a rarity in any year (300 out of 360 days per year are overcast).

Will try to write more later about our trip.
