What to expect

Enjoy a complete New Year’s Eve program, with magnificent 5-course gala dinner, unlimited drink consumption, raffle games and much more! This program was created for people looking to spend New Year’s Eve in a festive environment with a multicultural crowd. Watch a Folklore Performance on the ship while cruising on the Danube, listen to the amazing salon music during the evening and dance to the live DJ show until dawn if you feel like it. You do not need to worry about getting home, transfer from the ship to your accommodation is included in the price!

Did you know, that according to Hungarian tradition New Year’s Day was called Little-Christmas? On this day people toured the villages spreading kindness and good wishes to ensure that the following year is going to be a great one. Additionally, whatever happens to someone on New Year’s Day will affect the whole year, for example if you take a bath really early in the morning, you will be fresh the whole year.

Join this party, and celebrate the New Year from the open upper decks of the ship while watching fireworks all above the city with champagne in your hands!
