Meghan F., business professional and mother of three, describes the impact that a getaway on the AmaCerto with three fellow moms of three had on their well-being, and how they were able to disconnect for the week.
Meghan’s Recommended Highlights & Excursions on the Danube
Budapest, Hungary: We had never been to Hungary or Eastern Europe before, so we really got to see something new and different while strolling through the city together. The monuments and museums in the Castle Hill district were standouts.
Bratislava, Slovakia: The “Tastes of Slovakia” Special Interest Tour gave us a chance to sample some delicious local beer and cheese pairings at a pub. Toasting to our friendship and connecting with the locals was a real highlight for us.
Vienna, Austria: We chose the “Imperial Vienna” tour and the architecture in Vienna was incredible. I was blown away by the ornate buildings. We also stopped along the way to taste some traditional apple strudel at a restaurant recommended by our Cruise Manager during our free time — sure enough, it was incredible!
Salzburg, Austria: We loved stopping at Mondsee, which is where the wedding scene in The Sound of Music was filmed. Seeing it up close like that when we had grown up watching the movie was unreal. When we returned home, we all reconnected and watched the movie with our kids.

Quality Time: Nowadays, spending quality time together with my friends is hard to come by. We all live in the same neighborhood and our kids are close, so we see each other regularly, but it’s not always quality time. Our river cruise experience was amazing because it gave us a chance to have uninterrupted time together instead of just seeing each other on the fly.
