We booked our cruise online, it was 15.50 euros per person, I paid with PayPal and even though I was a bit worried at first when we arrived from the meeting point point to the boat I was pleasantly surprised. The boat was amazing, they welcomed us with a glass of champagne and we went to the top deck of... More

To say wonderful river, sounds simple just words, but when in a boat you are "in" it's enough to fill all his story! It happens I saw the rivers of Budapest and Vienna, and I got now a problem to solve: which is the best?

The Danube is an amazing river, starting at the Black Sea and going all the way through Europe to Germany. It is much quieter in most parts than the Rhine, with more natural wonders. There are locks - large and small, A wonderful way to see a lot very easily. Taking day stops each day in wonderful and picturesque places,... More

My wife and I took the Viking River Cruise Danube Waltz with another couple in mid-July and had an excellent time. We don't have a lot of experience with cruises, but have taken one in Alaska and one in France/Italy, but this was our first river cruise. I'd read several reviews before we left, and there seems to be a... More

Danube is THE landmark of Budapest. There are countless boat trips on offer, yet there are also #11 and 12 boats which are a part of Budapest´s public transportation system and ply the river across the entire city, passing all the monuments and calling on both sides of the river in the vicinity of all the monuments. A single ride... More

Budapest stole my heart! It is a beautiful and romantic city, I would definitely recommend it as a honeymoon trip. I've visited Paris and Prague before, but I found Budapest more beautiful than the other 2. At night the view from the top of the castle hill is impressive. I didn't get a chance to take a cruise on the... More

Our evening boat trip on the Danube was the highlight of our all to short trip to Budapest this summer!!! The city is now one of our favourites in Europe. The stunning views from taking an evening 'passeggiata' along the riverside and stopping for a superb meal along the way was what I remember most clearly from our visit. A... More

AMA Waterways is not as well known as some of the other European river cruise companies, but definitely should be. Highest quality staff, rooms, food and service. Highly recommend.
