Just noticed you are on the same or similar "Danube River Cruise" departing on Nov.1 I am flying from Heathrow to Budapest, and will be on M S " William Wordsworth" I too have just posted a message on the Forum, you will maybe take a look at it. I am also in the Widower category, some 4yrs. now. Looks to be a good Cruise, with visits to some amazing Cities, the only reservations I have is the Weather may be past its best by then. But will keep a positive attitude!
