EASTER CRUISE DINNER BUDAPEST
Easter Monday is one of the most popular holidays in Hungary. As part of the old traditions, the men are ’watering’ the women on Easter Monday, which represents freshness and beauty for the rest of the year. Women prepare hand-made colored eggs for the ’watering’men.
In the old days the watering was done with fresh water, but nowadays perfume is used.
During the Easter Cruise Dinner, we cruise along the Danube, where you could admire the city's night lights and its all monumental buildings historically and culturally known worldwide from a more spectacular perspective than any other alternative ones; from the water on board, taking a 3-hour journey. Our Easter dinner catamaran and also the program are maximum child-friendly, so everything is ready to provide you a memorable, enjoyable experience. Our boat awaits you with high-quality live shows and a tasty four-course menu.

How do Hungarian people celebrate Easter?
On Easter Sunday, we do celebrate the greatest celebration of Christianity, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Easter Monday is the day of watering in the Hungarian folk life.
Once in the countryside, girls were sprinkled with water, and in some areas, they were bathed – originally, men used to sprinkle with clean water, unfortunately if it was cold at Easter, it could be a disease. Nowadays, women are much luckier than ages before since they are just perfumed, using modern perfume by ‘watering’ men, and in a competition for their kindness, women give hand-painted eggs or today chocolate eggs, bunnies even unfortunately some money. Although we cannot promise watering on our boats, on Easter Sunday and Monday as well Szamos marzipan chocolate eggs are served to all our guests.
