Great dinner, views, and entertainment. We bought the 3 course with window seat package. Thought we would perhaps buy the drink package as well, but al la cart pricing for drinks was better selection and very affordable. All seats were by the window so didn't need to purchase that upgrade (two rows of tables all by the window). The duck confit was amazing! Loved the pianists and singer. Lovely romantic river cruise, would highly recommend!

The boat holds about 250 people in one event, it sounds a lot but when on board it’s really spread out. It has great music, secure cloak room for your belongings and nice toilets. We received a wrist band and our own bar but only spirit and mixer was available. I had booked with the understanding we could also receive cocktails.

Beautiful walk on the Danube, the city lights go out at 22 p.m. to embark on a cruise that ends at 22:15 p.m. Unlimited Prosecco! The waiters serve you throughout the event good atmosphere, but a little loud music and a lot of noise, because many young people come to rest a little before going out

Stunning views! All the seats had pretty good views inside, but outside was phenomenal! Even though it was cold outside, I could hardly tear myself away to go inside to get warm. Staff kept the prosecco topped off on our glasses. Never had an empty glass. One of our best nights in Budapest

Myself and 2 other ladies did this cruise on the 26th of November. Was amazing to see all the beauty of Budapest from the river Danube. We sat on deck most of the trip and thoroughly enjoyed the 3 cocktails which was part of the trip. Crew was very helpful. Definitely recommend to go on this.

Nice event, the illuminated buildings are really worth seeing. The cocktails were delicious and were brought quickly. Unfortunately, the ship first drove towards Margarethen Island and then south, so that we could not see the illuminated parliament from the ship. (Departure in mid-April at 7:00 p.m.) So maybe choose a later date - if possible.

The cocktail cruise is a lovely evening activity. It was very nice to be able to look at the old buildings with the great lighting at night. The cocktails all tasted really good! The service from Salwa and Adam was great. The two were very attentive and friendly. The bar employees Dia and Emese also did a great job. I would always recommend this tour! Price performance is top!
