Me and my wife wanted to buy two regular tickets, but the cashier printed us two first class tickets without telling us, and asked for the money. When we asked why the amount is that high, she said that the only available seats are in the first class seats. Shouldn't you ask us first before charging us for more money?... More

Took the twin city liner from Vienna to bratislava. Did not like the service. Though the first few rows were all empty, it was all first class and we were not allowed to move there :(. other than the splashing water back of the boat, did not find anything interesting. Return took the train back from Bratislava and like it.

We did not actually get to travel between Vienna and Bratislava, because the Danube Canal had been blocked by industrial action. However, we received an e-mail from the company giving us 24 hours notice of the problem, thus allowing us to sort out a rail alternative. Furthermore, they very promptly credited the fares paid back to my credit card.

This is the most economical way to cruise on the Danube moving quickly and quietly on the calm waters that take you around the city and back and neighbouring Bratislava. Fully air conditioned and with a lower and upper deck, the boat has an open air deck to providing a panoramic view of the city. The catamaran can be hired... More

We took the Twin City Liner to Bratislava and back to Vienna. The boat trip was very comfortable and enjoyable. They left timely and returned as scheduled. Snacks and drinks available on board.

Me and my girlfriend took the twin city liner to get to Bratislava on our trip in Europe. The trip was really smooth and I even fell asleep for part of the trip. The boat is very nice and we are glad we took this over the boat or train.

What a fantastic trip, we took this boat trip from Bratislava to Vienna. The scenery is gorgeous, you pass some great landmarks and the seats are comfy. Plenty of space for luggage/bicycles on board. Great value for money and if used instead of bus/train between Bratislava and Vienna it compares favourably in terms of journey length.

We used this liner after a Bratislava day tour to return to Vienna. Costed us €20 more than if we returned by coach per person. In view of the scenery we enjoyed all the way, it was good value for money. I may have only one opportunity of a lifetime to travel on the Danube, and we enjoyed it to... More

Perhaps the main disappointing thing about this cruise was its blatant disregard for those in Bratislava wanting to visit Vienna. With myself as one of them, we had always planned on visiting Vienna - but stayed in Bratislava instead to cut costs as the cities are practically next door to each other anyway. We thought that a cruise up the... More
