Book your desired option and, after Budapest hotel pickup, make your way to the Danube River departure pier.

Be welcomed aboard with a glass of sparkling wine, plus your choice of a wine, beer, or soda and enjoy the views from the open, upper deck. An onboard folk orchestra will strike up, so you can enjoy traditional live music as you sightsee.

If you’ve booked for drinks and dinner, head to the candlelit dining salon and savor a delicious 3-course buffet spread of Hungarian classics. See the Itinerary for sample dishes.

Whatever your selected option, soak in the landmarks along Budapest’s UNESCO-listed Danube embankments. The monuments are bathed in light at night, creating a spectacular sight.

Cruise under the Chain Bridge, pass the Gellert Baths and Freedom Monument (Liberty Statue), and take in the Parliament and Buda Castle twinkling in the darkness.

Your experience ends with a hotel drop-off after disembarkation.

Romantic Dinner with my wife

Another beautiful experience. We went for the boat cruise after dinner and enjoyed 90 minutes ride. Budapest has many facets, this cruise in the night was absolutely beautiful and very special. My wife enjoyed beautiful evening on Danube.
