Great cruise with lunch buffet - staff were really helpful and the food was gorgeous. Wish I’d been hungrier because everything was excellent. Ghoulash soup, roast meats, potatoes, veg, salad and I loved the meat filled cabbage leaves. Cold but sunny day and great views of the beautiful buildings. I didn’t need to eat in the evening as I was so full.

This is a great way to enjoy a nice lunch while looking at the beautiful sights on the riverbanks. The wait staff is friendly and attentive & the buffet is decent. After lunch, it is best go go to the upper deck to enjoy a nice breeze and to have a better view. Overall, this is a great cruise at a bargain. I highly recommend this cruise.

very misleading website. I thought I had booked lunch with the cruise (very misleading name of cruise), when we arrived had to change our confirmation and payment for tickets at the office in the meeting point. Only by accident did I notice the tickets were ticked for drinks only. We had to pay extra and get tickets changed to include the food. This is not satisfactory, we could have missed out entirely .Please improve your booking website so that there is no misundertsanding and people are sure of what they have booked and paid for. My printed voucher stated `Danube lunch cruise.` Also there were other people on that day who had same opinion as us.
