Budapest’s UNESCO-listed Danube banks are especially impressive at sunset and after dark, and this evening cruise lets you enjoy them in comfort, from the water. Savor unobstructed views of the main landmarks as they glide past and light up in their evening illuminations, and enjoy two drinks, including a sparkling wine, plus live music, on route. Upgrade to enjoy a 4-course dinner on board.
What to Expect
Book your preferred tour option, meet your guide in central Budapest, and stroll to the Danube River dock to board your ship.

Relax as you're served with two welcome drinks—a glass of sparkling wine, plus your choice of a wine, beer, or soda. Then, soak in the sights as you cruise by the UNESCO-listed embankments.

Gaze at the Parliament, Buda Castle district, and Chain Bridge, and watch the sights light up with their evening illuminations. Enjoy the live onboard folk music from the Hungaria Folk Orchestra, and if you wish, head to the open deck to enjoy the views.

If you’ve selected a dinner cruise, savor a traditional 4-course Hungarian buffet meal, made extra memorable by the glittering backdrop of sights. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu.)

Your cruise finishes back at the original starting point.

Fantastic night view of the Danube .... Must see when in Budapest ....

When in Budapest, the evening boat ride is a must on your list of things to do. The dinner buffet was decent and made for good overall complement to the boat ride. The view as the sun went down was magnificent, I dare say even...More

No transportation was provided. We took a taxi from our hotel and met at the cruise location and as soon as everyone arrived we walk to the boat which was about 5 minutes away.

Right at the pier!! We had a hotel pick up but it’s all very close by. Maybe ask about the exact location and they should advise you as to what restaurant or hotel they put front of :)
