Budapest Late-Night Dinner & Cruise on the Danube

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Whether you fancy a late dinner or a wonderful spot for after-dinner drinks, take this Danube River cruise for a relaxing night out in Budapest. Sip wine and Hungarian Sparkling wine, and enjoy an optional Hungarian buffet dinner if you wish. The star of your cruise is your view of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Budapest panorama, which includes the Buda Castle Quarter.
  • Admire Budapest bathed in evening lights on a late-night River Danube cruise
  • Views of the floodlit Parliament, Chain Bridge, and more from the water
  • Enjoy sparkling wine plus wine, beer, or soda; and live folk music
  • Upgrade for a 3-course Hungarian buffet dinner to add to the occasion
What to Expect
Book your desired option and, after Budapest hotel pickup, make your way to the Danube River departure pier. Be welcomed aboard with a glass of sparkling wine, plus your choice of a wine, beer, or soda and enjoy the views from the open, upper deck. An onboard folk orchestra will strike up, so you can enjoy traditional live music as you sightsee. If you’ve booked for drinks and dinner, head to the candlelit dining salon and savor a delicious 3-course buffet spread of Hungarian classics. See the Itinerary for sample dishes. Whatever your selected option, soak in the landmarks along Budapest’s UNESCO-listed Danube embankments. The monuments are bathed in light at night, creating a spectacular sight. Cruise under the Chain Bridge, pass the Gellert Baths and Freedom Monument (Liberty Statue), and take in the Parliament and Buda Castle twinkling in the darkness. Your experience ends with a hotel drop-off after disembarkation.
