The staff was very friendly, the food was very good. In addition, the ship's band also fulfilled personal music requests, but was never intrusive. The ship's route leads past a number of the city's sights, thanks to an outdoor area you can spontaneously switch to the outdoor area at any time during the meal (inside), for example to take photos. A very nice, tasty and memorable evening.

It was a magical evening for us. The ship was very spacious and sparkling clean. The reception at the entrance was professional, friendly and rounded off with a glass of "welcome champagne". The food at the self-service buffet was really excellent (the finest goulash soup, tender meat with spaetzle and apple and quark strudel for dessert. Nothing to complain about fork. The trip on the Danube took almost 2 hours and gave insights into the most beautiful illuminated buildings. We were accompanied musically by a really excellent Hungarian music trio with noticeable conservatory training. We really liked it. We'd love to do it again.
