Set for Dinner on the Christmas Eve Cruise
  • Most restaurants, cafes, shops close in the afternoon on 24. December and stay closed over the next two days.
  • Apart from some winter holiday concerts, there aren’t much things to do in the city on Christmas Eve so a boat excursion with festive dinner by candlelight offers a memorable and romantic program.
  • You can admire these sights and the captivating night city view on this 2-hour-long cruise.
  • After dinner you can also enjoy the panorama from the open upper deck of the ship and snap photos to take home with you.
  • Price is affordable and includes the 2-hour river tour, the warm buffet dinner of 4 courses with 2 drinks: a glass of Hungarian wine – you can swap it for a non-alcoholic drink –  and a glass of mineral water (0.33 liter), authentic gypsy music by the renowned Hungaria Folk Orchestra.
