  • See the sights of Budapest by night on a cruise ship. Float past the Technical University, Gellért Baths, the Gellért Hill, the Citadel and more
  • Enjoy a huge buffet spread of food by a top Hungarian chef - go up as many times as you like - and get two wines, beers or soft drinks, one at boarding and one with your dinner
  • Listen to live music, hear the unique Hungarian 'cimbalom' and request your own songs

Budapest at night is a whole shiny new side to the 'Pearl on the Danube'. And you can see it all twinkling from the upper deck of a ship, as you enjoy a delicious candlelit buffet prepared by a top Hungarian chef. Sip fine wine, eat great food, and enjoy an ever-changing panoramic cityscape, all to the sounds of live music by members of the Hungária Folk Orchestra.

You'll see world-class sights like the Chain Bridge, the Gellért Baths, and the Citadel, as you snap photos and sip your included drinks (you get one wine or beer when you board, and one with your dinner).

For two hours you'll enjoy the city from the best vantage point: the beautiful Danube River that runs between (and connects) its two sides - Buda and Pest. All as you enjoy a buffet including traditional and modern dishes, with plenty of options for meat-lovers and vegetarians. Soups, salads, sides, main courses, desserts - you'll find plenty of delicious cooking, so bring your appetite!

With world-famous musicians to entertain your ears, excellent food (and drinks) to keep your energy up, and the best views of the city passing by your windows, this is an unbeatable Budapest evening.

This cruise is a truly great way to see the sights along the banks of the Danube. We sat right by the musicians, which was fun as we felt as though we were really in the heart of the action. Buffet was delicious and plentiful. Only thing was it was a little short, (1.5 hours) and you're back before you've started! We didn't even have time for dessert, although it was right there all along. We made friends on the boat, who we went out with afterwards into the Jewish Quarter, so if you're looking to meet others this is the perfect place!

The live music and hard work of the staff, caterers, musicians and those waiting deserve the top marks.

All in all it was a lovely trip, could have been bit longer but I suppose we had to get back to that the next lot could go out.
Not sure why we had to meet t the ticket office then all walk all the way down to the boat which the rep said was 10 minutes away when it really was a good 20 minutes. When we saw the boat we all went wow not know then that we would just walk through the foyer of that boat and get on to the boat on the other side. But it was ok the dining area was fine. They had a lovely band playing as we boarded and they played while we ate. The staff were friendly but not overly attentive.The drinks not overly priced as I had expected. I'm sure it stated we would get 3 drinks free but in the end it only turned out to be one and that was on arrival.The food was very nice and well presented and there was plenty of it. The obligatory cruise photographer appeared and the price of the picture was a pleasant surprise too.It was a fun evening but the only downside was that it was very very hot and there was no air con on board. The only air con was if you went up the stairs to the open deck but as there was hardly any breeze it was only slightly better than being in the dining hall. A nice way to spend a couple of hours and you don't need to dress up either.

I booked this as a surprise for my husband's 70th birthday. We were accompanied by two friends and all of us had a lovely evening. The organisation was well planned, the dining room well presented and the food was very enjoyable. It was a very hot night and we were not sure if the air con was working as it was very hot in the dining room. Once we had eaten it was very pleasant to go up on deck and see the beautiful city. I feel we could have stayed longer, maybe a 3hr cruise rather than 2hrs?
