Day or night, the boat trips are worth the ticket price

We took a dinner cruise on one of the boats docked on the Pest side of the Danube. The dinner also included local dancers and singers/musicians - they were excellent! The food was not to our liking, but the drinks and entertainment - and the night views - made up for that! Well worth it for the views - day... More

A nice river to cruise on. Took a Vantage Travel cruise from Budapest, Hungary to Bucharest, Romania. Very nice and glad we choose Vantage to cruise with.

Pros: Clean, comfortable vessel with a friendly crew. Interesting, adequate and well organized portage calls. Impressive meal selection and presentation. Cons: Advertise 8 day cruise, but provide 6 days and a dinner. Standard Stateroom was clean and well kept, but noise level was that as of sleeping on a tug boat.

An additional way to see the city. We took a one hour cruise to enjoy the river and the sights. A nice experience.

We were on board the AmaStella in October 2016. We embarked from Budapest and cruised to Germany. We won't be dealing with AMAWaterways again. Very poor customer service. Every cruise has issues--and it's how a company deals with the issues that can set them apart from others. AmaWaterways failed us and we won't be back. My advice--do your research. Not... More

Any time of day, this is an interesting spot to visit. Our first glimpse of the Danube was at night as our flight came in late in the day. I have to admit there's something magical at night. We were only a few blocks away, so we visited almost every day.

We went on an evening river cruise which included a buffet meal and music. Beautiful views of parliament, bridges and churches that were all lit up and dotted along the river.

Did the cocktail cruise and a family of 5 walked on I feel if it's a cocktail cruise small children should not be allowed on the cruise.. No one wants to hear children crying or running around when it's supposed to be a romantic night taking in all the beauty of Budapest. The cocktail menu should be updated as well.... More

It was average, wasn't the best river I've seen but certainly prettier than the Thames. Thought it would be busier but there were only a few ships around.
