What You Can Expect

Budapest Danube River Dinner Cruise

Budapest Szechenyi Chain Bridge

Your evening will begin at Danube Palace in the center of Budapest. From there, a guide will show you the way to the river where your dinner cruise will be waiting for you. You can toast your fellow shipmates with a glass of wine or Champagne as you gaze out the windows to view Budapest’s panorama, given recognition by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
Many of Budapest’s notable sights are showcased along the river, and you’ll have a front-row seat to admire the glowing Buda Castle and the Freedom Monument. You’ll also pass the Gellért Baths, where Hungarians and visitors alike come to swim and relax, as well as the Chain Bridge, a suspension bridge that spans the river and connects Buda and Pest.
If you’d like to dine aboard your Danube River cruise, select the option at checkout to include a traditional Hungarian meal with your ticket, which will be served buffet-style. (Please check the Itinerary section for a sample of the menu.) Live music from the Hungaria Folk Orchestra will also be provided as you take in all the sights, history and culture that this sparkling city has to offer.

This was a surprise for all of us. The food was wonderful - there was huge variety and plenty to try. An extra drink was pricey but there were three drinks included. The views were beautiful, especially once it was dark. The band were entertaining but we would have liked some commentary on what we were seeing.

Take your print out into Danuba Palota to be exchanged for a ticket. Good trip, all as described. Musicians played through out. No commentary, which we liked.
