The boarding details were different than the actual place of boarding, we had difficulties finding the right spot, we were told to arrive at a dock and the boarding was 1 dock prior from the one provided in the info. Luckily we saw a line of people there and went to check. If you don't know Hungarian you will have problems, the staff welcoming you on the boat will basically ignore you and speak with you in Hungarian, even if you clearly tell them you don't understand, they will continue to speak Hungarian to you, they won't even point you in the right direction to be seated, they will assume if they repeat themselves long enough you will develop Google translate powers and you will magically understand them. The goulash was ok, not memorable but decent enough. The Danube is amazing though.

Nice views of Budapest but a little cramped inside.

Very nice views of Buda and Pest. Goulash was quite tasty for the adults but my kids wouldn't touch it. I would've liked to have an option for no dinner for them. I was a little disappointed that dinner started serving just as we pulled away and thus we weren't able to go outside and enjoy the views. Also, it was very stuffy inside the cabin and after awhile, we needed to go outside just to get comfortable.

We loved the dinner & cruise. We saw the Parlament twice. Once by daylight and once by night. Very relaxing…food was good, considering that its not a restaurant but on a little ship. Violin music was also very entertaining We would recommend it and we would do it again.

This was really disappointing considering Istanbul... Boat was good but there was no explanation by staff which resulted in mix up of buffet... Definitely not worth to spend 2 hrs
