The cruise was enjoyable, enough seats for the amount of people on it, left on time, good picture opportunities and the journey was long enough to enjoy the main sites without it being guided. The 5pm time was good as you can see the monuments in the light before it started to get dark. The music made the boat have a great atmosphere, I would recommend this cruise

There was a long queue to board and a lot of queue jumping, which was irritating. There was also a large, rather rowdy, group on board. This wasn't a problem for me at all, but some of the other customers didn't look very happy with the youngsters and loud singing. The actual cruise was enjoyable.

Seeing Budapest by night is an exquisite experience. It was after Christmas and it was cold. However, with a glass of flavoured hot wine and a good company, you can have an amazing time. It lasts about an hour and your are generously given the possibility to see both Danube banks, Buda and Pest in all their splendour. The Parliament building looks amazing, and so is the Buda castle. I recommend it definitely .
