The River Danube is a magnificent sight when lit up at night and the cruise was well worth the time and money. The staff worked very hard and their customer service was exemplary. The food was delicious (although portion sizes are on the small side). I thought 3hrs for the entire cruise (going back and forth along the same patch of river) was just slightly too long for my personal preference. Also, there was only a tiny amount of outside space at the front and back of the boat to admire the view and take in some fresh air, which was disappointing.. I believe the upper deck was being used for a private tour group?

The show was beautiful but the dinner was a bit slow, the courses never arrived. In addition to the goulash soup we had two other main dishes but they were not exceptional: the very fatty goulash and the cod a bit small and with few ingredients, nothing extraordinary. Passion fruit juice is good but it is absurd that with such an expense you have to add more money. The talented musicians and the exciting show, we will repeat it without dinner.

We took the 6 course option for a 6 hour dinner cruise. The 6 courses are composed of 2 amuse-bouche, a starter, a main course, a dessert and a cheese (in that order). The 3-hour cruise is in fact twice the same 1h30 loop, which however allows you to take day and night photos of the main monuments of the city. The show alternates between artists playing pieces of contemporary music with violin and double bass, then a show with traditional Hungarian songs and dances.
