Memorable but felt like a tourist trap - - The view from the boat in the night is amazing and one of the best things about the trip - The young dancers were great and really did their best to give everybody a good experience and good pictures - The musicians did great but seemed to be looking for tips when asking people for what music they wanted to hear - The food was good but it really felt like a race to get the food on the buffet before it ran out - The waiter was a tourist trap nightmare. He told me and my daughter that included in the trip price was a soft drink was included and a beer or a glass of wine. We then ordered a beer and a lemonade. At the end of the trip he said we had to pay for the lemonade because that was not a soft drink (which he did not warn about) and regarding the beer he said that he gave me a big one but only a small was included (and I just ordered a beer). He ended up charging me full price for both and tilted the card machine so I did not see that he included a 20 percent tip for himself. I then insisted that I got a small beer and a soft drink for free and he acted surprised and said "do you really want that?". I said yes and had to wait to almost the end of the trip because he prioritized getting payment from other clients first So the trip had some good sights and memorable moments but other parts of it felt too much like a tourist trap. I would recommend others to trip to find a trip where service fees are included and a number of courses delivered to the table so there is no race for the food

A night wasted! - Not much of an entertainment. Bad food, bad drinks. Regret wasting a night in Budapest on this boat, don’t care too much how expensive it was.

Disappointmen - My partner and I came in, we didn't ask for dinner, we had lunch beforehand. It was his birthday, they said there was music. We were seated in a room, we left, there was no music, we went up to the terrace, which was crowded, so we went back. 30 people sat in silence, who were equally disappointed because they too were promised a musical evening, but it was not there everywhere. Disappointment!!!!!
