It was a 3 hours cruise with food. The food that they served were delicious and very Hungarian. We didn't know the dishes name until we went to a restaurant the next day. Surprisingly even though they were serving the buffet style, it tastes better than the restaurant that we went. The live violin music was quite irritating maybe I didn't like classical music.

The cruise was very enjoyable and seeing the beautiful buildings on the Danube all lit up was breathtaking. Music was quite good and entertaining. Service was very good. The ship itself was pretty nice. Food was pretty mediocre but the glass if Champaign was a nice touch. Overall enjoyable.

The most beautiful boat. With space ahead to watch the trip whenever you wanted - but the actual entry (under all Budapest's differently lit bridges) was breathtaking. Perfect service in every way and absolutely good food. A really nice experience. I have been on several of these evening boat tours - and this was the best.

The boat was a bit hard to find. The food was only ok. I found myself spending most of the time outside looking at the view than eating.

Lovely boat that had an old fashioned feel about it . Food was good & drinks were decent . The folk band played a good selection of songs . Only downside was our waitress for the evening never showed up after the first 10 minutes . Would do it again next time we visit
