Celebrate the New Year on board our ship with live music and dancing!
We would like to invite you to spend New Year’s Eve in a splendid way! We created a special program which combines Hungary’s cultural treasures with Budapest's unparalleled atmosphere.
Budapest, the "Pearl of the Danube" is peaceful and bustling, a big metropolis and still a friendly city. The historic meets the modern here, the hills harmonize with the river, which flows through the city. Budapest’s incomparable beauty prompted UNESCO to place it on the World Heritage list. The best way to see all this beauty is to take a ship cruise.
Our New Year’s Eve is organised on our ship, the entertainment is garanteed by the award-winning Hungária Orchestra and Folk Ensemble. Through the performed dances you can gain insight into the folk music, dance and costume heritage of Hungary. Besides Hungarian culture you will meet people from different countries with whom you will celebrate this unforgettable evening. The Orchestra will also provide the opportunity to dance.
Meeting point: Jászai Mari Square Pier 1. (Pest side). The gala dinner begins at 20:30. Boarding starts at 19:00.
During the evening, the ship will cruise from 23:30.
After the performances the boat will dock at the Jászai Mari Square.
