Full description
Spend Christmas Eve on board a luxury river boat in Budapest and glide through the city on a 120-minute dinner cruise. Sail down the River Danube, admiring Budapest’s historic panorama illuminated at twilight.

Named a UNESCO World Heritage City in 1987 for its stunning architecture, the banks of the Danube perfectly encapsulate the various periods of Budapest’s history, stretching from Chain Bridge (Clark Ádám Square) to the Technical University on the Buda side of the Danube, an area that also boasts Gellért Baths, the Freedom Monument, the Citadella, and Buda Castle.

As you cruise, watch the city drift by at twilight, and settle in for a romantic candlelight atmosphere. Listen to live salon music, performed by members of the Zoltán Kodály award-winning Rajkó folk orchestra.
