WE LIKED:The Riverboat, very nice, very clean. The staff also very polite. The live music was excellent. The musicians sell their CD for 15 euros (5000 fiorints). The view to the Danube is amazing!

This was a fun date night activity. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. The food is buffet style and just okay but the performance is great and the city is beautiful at night. Definitely would recommend

Nice musical dinner cruise in head to head (advice: if you want a table of 2, arrive early). Hungarian buffet with soup and main dishes and dessert (advice: go there from the start otherwise it's a queue!). Musicians bring a nice touch and on demand they move to play everything! spectacle of the monuments of Budapest illuminated and you can go on the bridge at mealtimes to contemplate them. To recommend.

Views were spectacular once you got out on deck after the food. Food was very good. Up there with the best of buffet food. We were asked to arrive 30 mins before. Stood in a queue as boarding didn't begin until 10 mins before departure. A minor irritation. Music was not really my thing. Others seemed to enjoy it. Some a bit too much.

Cool atmosphere of an old imperial-era ship with professional / perfect workmanship / classical music and the charm of historic architecture You won't leave hungry either. If you do not have a better idea, you will be satisfied. Minus - no information about what you see and what you are swimming around!
