I was expecting the food to be pretty ordinary but it surprised nicely. Schnitzel, Apfelstrudel and few other traditional dishes made for a great dinner. No commentary did make it a little tricky to figure out what was happening but moving through the lock was fun.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

A thoroughly enjoyable evening. The dinner and entertainment were very good. However it would have been better if transport had been available to take passengers back to their hotels as several people experienced difficulty climbing the steep steps from the boat back up to the roadway.

There was some confusion just prior to boarding the boat but we finally were allowed on. The cruise was quite enjoyable and scenery was great, particularly when it got darker. Met some wonderful people. The boat was a bit dumb as the walkways down the sides could only accommodate 1 person which meant if someone was half way down the deck, getting past them was a pain. I enjoyed the food...but then I like any food. You can feed me dog kibble and I would probably like it! My wife enjoyed it though, so thats a good sign.

Very lovely.
The food was great, however we did think there would be classical "Blue Danube" music.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2013

Even though we arrived in Vienna during the flood, the cruise was not cancelled. We got a cruise on the Donau-canal, and a short trip on the Donau through the watergate. Really interesting! Good food and nice with live music. :)

Prompt pick up and transfer was then spoilt by total confusion as to which boat we were going to be on. The operators staff were unable to resolve the situation for 30mins or more during which we were asked to transfer boats twice. Once resoled we had a very pleasant evening .

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

Collection from the hotel was fine but once arriving at the boat the driver had apparently lost all the tickets for the trip and we were all kept shoreside for over 30 minutes and so were the last to board although our tables were allocated. The self service meal was a little haphazard and probably not what we expected after a dinner cruise on the Seine but cost wise the Danube cruise was a great deal cheaper. However company was good so the evening was successful. Drinks on the boat were well served and the waiters were excellent. A good cruise around the Vienna Danube and canal particularly as we came back towards Vienna and saw the city lit up by night.

3 star rating: Worth doing May 2015

A nice way to relax and wind down after a long day.
