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.

Lunch was OK but could have been better, it was a very cold day and the food was only Luke warm, nicer if it had been hot. The commentary was quiet as there was also music playing. I did not feel that it was a worthwhile trip. Would not do it again.
