We are often asked if pets are welcome on board on certain Budapest river cruises. We have 2 good news for dog owners. There are several sightseeing cruises where small dogs are welcome, and there is no extra charge – your dog can cruise for free.
On the other hand, unfortunately there are stricter pet policies on cruises with catering, as these programs have to meet special health & safety regulations.
These restrictions apply on most of the dinner cruises (however may not apply to guide dogs on certain cruises, who may be allowed on a selection of the boat tour programs: please contact us via email before making a reservation to make sure you book or buy a cruise where dogs / guide dogs are allowed.)
On sightseeing cruises, as opposed to cruises with lunch or dinner, small dogs and also guide dogs are allowed, but they must wear a muzzle, and must be kept on leash during the cruise. Please let us know about your dog in advance, so that we can reserve the most suitable seats for you on board.
There is one dinner cruise where small dogs are welcome, on the Cruise & Show program. Please note that the dogs have to stay in a dog basket during the cruise. Bigger dogs (not even large sized guide dogs) are unfortunately not allowed on this dinner cruise.
Much to our greatest regret, dogs are not allowed on the following dinner cruises: A La Carte Dinner Cruise, Dinner Cruise & Piano Music, Dinner & Gypsy Music, 10 pm Cruise.
This regulation may not apply if you are accompanied by your guide dog: please contact us via email before making a reservation so that we can help you which cruises are best suited to your needs. If you are travelling with a guide dog, please note that the dog must wear a muzzle, and must be kept on leash during the cruise. Please let us know about your dog partner in advance, so that we can suggest the best cruise option, and reserve the most suitable table for you on board.
