Elegant dinner and suggestive panorama. Nice entertainments.

An elegant evening and an illuminated and fairytale city seen from the Danube. Gourmet and non-Italian wines, but the atmosphere and organization is also worth an encore. Suitable for couples, groups of friends and even families with young children. At Pier n ° 3 there are more boats, I advise you to arrive a little early and ask first for the name of the boat.

The ship looks very classy, the food is quite good if not exciting, the service is overwhelmed, the longer the evening takes, however, very hard and mostly very friendly. The big advantage is that you don't have to rely on the service, you can get something yourself at the bar! Long drinks, wine, beer all free and of perfect quality. With gin there is for example beefeater ... The raffle for little things was made charming and caused a lot of laughter. Sometime after 2 a.m. we were driven home included, others danced further down in the ship. It was a thoroughly successful New Year's Eve! The 180 euros pp are well spent for New Year's Eve in Budapest.
