Cruises to be Booked Online
- Cruise and Show: Budapest Music Ship
- Special Events Cruises: Fireworks Cruise, Christmas Eve Cruise, NYE Cruise
Booking in advance is absolutely necessary for our special Cruise & Show program (Opera, Operetta, Musical, Hungarian Folk dance, Step Band, Belly dance mix), which only runs 3x a week, and is a great favorite of locals to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, and other special occasions on the two hour Music Ship.
Special events cruises are also cruises that need to be booked in advance. The following VIP cruises are our special event Danube cruises in Budapest:
Fireworks on the Danube Budapest
Fireworks Danube Cruise: each year on August 20 the Fireworks river cruise is the most spectacular cruise of the year. Yes, bigger than New Year’s Eve cruises as the city celebrates her birthday with the National Fireworks at the UNESCO World Heritage Site on the river Danube. New Year’s Eve is fun, and nice too in Budapest, but the fireworks are smallish compared to the August 20 Fireworks. You have never seen Budapest like this!
Christmas on the Danube Budapest
Christmas Danube Cruise: city cruises in Budapest on Christmas Evening, on Christmas Day, on New Year’s Eve and on New Year’s Day. Budapest Christmas is a wonderful series of events in the city. A cruise on the river Danube is a must, especially on December 24 when the city wraps up in family celebrations, and there are very few events taking place. Our Christmas cruises are exceptional.
New Year on the Danube Budapest
New Year Cruises in Budapest: on New Year’s Eve and on New Year’s Day you can say goodbye to the old year in style. The NYE cruise has an Open Bar, live show, and lots of treats. All aboard the festive river Danube where the lights double in the night!
Further cruises that are worth booking online are dinner and lunch cruises at the weekends, which are quite booked up a few days before the event.
Dinner Cruises in Budapest: booking in advance is warmly recommended for the evening cruises with drinks or with dinner and drinks. You can book the Night Cruises with optional dinner: Budapest Danube dinner cruises: the night cruises are spectacular, and many tourists often combine it with a Hungarian folk show performance. As usual throughout the year, the dinner cruises are full at the weekends, and more relaxed during the weekdays.
Lunch Cruises in Budapest: lunch cruises or cruises with an optional lunch are less packed from October to May, but from June to September we suggest booking them in advance if you are on a short Budapest weekend. As usual throughout the year, the dinner cruises are full at the weekends, and more relaxed during the weekdays.
