I was in Budapest recently and was definitely wanting to take a Danube cruise. Seeing a city from the river that runs through it is always such an awesome site.
Of course there are plenty of companies offering river cruises in Budapest and of course also night time party cruises. I'm not much of a party person or atleast not like in my younger years, but aquaintances who've been to the Hungarian capital said that the nightlife especially in the summer is not something to be left out.
So I let my friend talk me into taking the Party on the Danube cruise. It's a little pricey and the ticket only includes a welcome drink (however, I must note that additional drinks come at very reasonable prices), but the nightime view of Budapest from the Danube is totally worth it. It was great to kick back with an ice cold beer after a long day of sightseeing and just enjoy the gorgeaous view of the city.
After the cruise they take you to a club, where we actually ended up staying for most of the night. The ship docks at Margaret Island where the club is, which isn't a cheesy pop disco, more like an artsy, alternative bar. Also it was very easy to get a cab back to the hotel from there. I'd definitely go back to that club if ever visiting Budapest again in the summer and I'd also recommend the Party on the Danube cruise as a great way to unwind with a breathtaking view.
