Drept sa va spun, primul lucru pe care il fac atunci cand e vorba despre organizarea unui sejur/city-break este sa caut biletele de avion. De putine ori iau in considerare sa merg in tara, din simplul motiv al serviciilor dezamagitoare pe care le-am primit. Desi consider ca avem o tara frumoasa, serviciile lasa de dorit, prin urmare, acestea vin ca nuca in perete in cele cateva zile pe care ajungi sa le platesti mai mult decat daca ai pleca din tara.

Insa, croaziera din Delta Dunarii a fost o experienta extraordinara din nenumarate puncte de vedere. Am avut deosebita placere sa ajung sa o vizitez datorita teambuilding-ului organizat de compania la care lucrez. Peisajele sunt de-a dreptul mirifice, m-am relaxat total timp de 3 zile la bordul unui hotel plutitor ce aluneca usor pe canalele marginite de stuful galben si nuferi, printre sutele de pasari sosite.

Totul a inceput cu “Welcome on Board” intr-o zi perfecta de toamna, mai exact in luna octombrie 2014, la bordul Hotelului Plutitor SERANO****!

Acesta este dotat cu trei punti: pe prima punte sunt dispuse camerele, pe a doua punte restaurantul, terasa acoperita si Estrada pentru programe artistice; puntea a treia este o terasa deschisa dotata cu jacuzzi si sezlong-uri pentru peisagistica si plaja.

REPET: JACUZZI! Nothing better than that!

Croaziera a constat in traversarea bratului Sulina in aproximativ 24 ore de mars. Am plecat din Portul Tulcea, am navigat in aval pana pe Bratul Sulina, Crisan – oras Sulina – Dunarea Veche – Lacul Trei Iezere – Mila 23 – Lacul Fortuna (incredibil de frumos) – navigat in amonte Brat Tulcea. In tot acest timp, vasul s-a miscat intr-un ritm lent, astfel incat sa nu ti se faca rau, sa poti servi masa in conditii corespunzatoare. Ce-i drept si vremea a tinut cu noi, intrucat aceste ore de mars variaza in functie de conditiile climatice si hidrologice.

Bucataria a fost specifica – cu meniuri preparate din peste (ciorbe, saramura, icre, stiuca umpluta, crap la protap, morun s.a)… totul (aproape totul) se observa in fotografiile pe care le-am facut inainte sa se apuce colegii mei de devorat.

Trebuie sa va marturisesc faptul ca mancarea a fost absolut delicioasa, iar personalul a fost de 5 stele+. M-am asteptat sa ma satur de gustul de peste in cele 3 zile, insa nu a fost asa. Oricum, dupa tot ce am mancat acolo, orice preparat din peste mancat ulterior palea in fata acelora. Odata cu prima masa si prima cafea, cu totii ne-am reincarcat bateriile dupa un drum lung (masina+bac cu punct de plecare din Bacau) si am facut karaoke, am dansat, am ras intr-una, am facut fotografii, am jucat remi… toate acestea fiind asezonate cu “licoarea zeilor” – VINUL!

Zilele urmatoare am avut activitati specifice: am facut cu totii un bors de peste intr-o oala imensa, am avut petrecere cu barbecue si foc de tabara, am vizitat Lacul Fortuna in ambarcatiuni cu motor, au fost veritabile partide de pescuit intre colegii care au venit pregatiti, am servit cafeaua pe langa jacuzzi (in apararea mea, n-aveam constumul de baie la mine) si… birdwatching.

Asadar, am putut repera califarul alb, cormoranii, dumbraveanca, egretele, pelicanii, pescarusii cu capul negru, rata cu capul negru si rata pestrita. Sa fiu cinstita, nu ma pricep sa identific speciile pe care tocmai vi le-am spus, insa m-au ajutat colegele mele.

Mare mi-a fost dezamagirea cand a venit ora de plecare, insa cu siguranta vom merge si anul acesta, datorita impresiilor bune cu care am plecat de acolo! Sper ca v-am convins intr-un fel sau altul sa vizitati frumusetile Deltei Dunarii, cu prima ocazie. Cei dintre voi care ma cunosc, stiu ca nu as recomanda niciodata un loc/restaurant/hotel care nu mi-a placut.

PS: THEY HAD ME AT <JACUZZI>!

To be honest, the first thing I tend to do when I am in the mood of a city break is to book a flight to a destination abroad. I don’t really want to go here, because I’ve had so many bad experiences regarding the tourism services, that I don’t want to risk anymore. Although I believe that we have a beautiful country, the hospitality is poor, and you tend to pay a lot more than abroad.

But, the Danube Delta cruise was an amazing experience. I had the thrill to visit it, due to a team building with the company where I work. The landscapes are breathtaking, I got away for 3 whole days on board of a floating hotel.

Everything started with “Welcome on Board” on a perfect day of fall; to be exact, in October 2014, on board of The SERANO**** Hotel!

This floating hotel has 3 decks: on the first deck there were the rooms, on the second deck there were the restaurant, the terrace and the outside deck; on the third deck there were a Jacuzzi and some lounge chairs for landscape and sun bathe.

I REPEAT: A JACUZZI! Nothing better than that!

The cruise took 24 hours across Sulina. We started from The Tulcea Port, we sailed downstream on Sulina, Crisan – Sulina town – The Old Dunube – The 3 Iezers Lake – Mile no. 23 – The Fortuna Lake (very beautiful) – we sailed upstream on Tulcea. Meanwhile, the ship sailed slowly, so that you could eat properly. The weather was perfect, that’s why we sailed through the perfect climate.

The dishes had a main ingredient: fish (soups, brine, caviar, stuffed pike, sturgeon, among others)… you can see everything (almost everything) in the photos below.

I have to admit: the food was delicious and the staff behaved flawlessly. After those dishes, every cooked fish wasn’t that perfect because they do it better than anyone. After a long journey (by car from Bacau, by ferry), we had lunch and a coffee on the deck. Afterwards, we were ready to party: we did karaoke, we danced around, we laughed, we took pictures back and forth, we played lots of games… everything was better drinking WINE #myfavourite!

The following days, we had lots of activities: we made a big pot of soup for everyone on the boat, we had a barbeque in the nature with a campfire, we visited the Fortuna Lake on a motorboat, my colleagues went fishing, we served the coffee near the Jacuzzi (in my defense, I didn’t bring my swimsuit) and… birdwatching.

Therefore, I saw shelducks, cormorants, egrets, pelicans, seagulls, black ducks and many others. To be honest, I don’t really know them well, but I had some help in describing them here – my colleagues made me do it!

I was disappointed when we had to leave, but, for sure, we will come back this year, because we had a good time! I really hope that I convinced some of you to go visit the Danube Delta, the first chance you get. Those of you who know me personally, know that I wouldn’t recommend a place/restaurant/hotel that I didn’t enjoy.

    • Ce-i drept, daca mergi in vara (iun-iul-aug) n-ai sanse de supravietuire din cauza tantarilor 🙂 Noi am fost toamna si a fost grozav! As fi vrut sa ma piste vreun tantar, macar sa am amintire, insa nu si-au facut aparitia deloc! Astept sa imi povestesti experienta ta!
