From the start of evening until the end it was brilliant . The 4 course dining was really good food came out hot and not rushed . A welcome drink on arrival sparkling wine . We paid for unlimited drinks and stuck with the sparkling wine but could have had white wine red wine beers or soft drinks . No sooner we finished a bottle another was brought to us . Entertainment was very enjoyable and we all had a great time

Spent my bday in Budapest and took this amazing cruise. The ride on the Danube was an exceptional experience in and of itself but the dinner and entertainment were the icing on the cake! The dancers and musicians were extremely talented, the singer had a gorgeous voice and the interaction with the audience kept my attention. I had the duck which was perfectly moist, the potatoes excellent and my drinks delicious! I took the cruise on a Monday so it wasn't a full boat so I suggest you try it on a Monday, as well.

at first difficult to find the correct starting point(there are many other cruise companies)no specific sign postings -only seen when almost on top of it-I thought the 3 hour long trip a bit too much.the "voyage'"goes up one side,down the other of the Danube a few times,where the main attraction sites are,so you see the same buildings and bridges over and over again the menu is 4 course,(I took the cruise,dinner and drinks)very well served,food looked and tasted good.desert disappointing-either fruit salad or flan..the flan thick,"listless" and not edible. the folk show and music very entertaining service on board very professional-good waiter service now this is ridiculous..I've posted my review,and it won't go through unless i write 1000 characters.... ........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
