Not a minute boring! For real! Only to be recommended! The Klarbär (travel guide) certainly didn't miss a building... super nice Only the entrance... nothing for the disabled! No help from the staff! Very unfriendly staff! Everything is chic on the ship, little space, but you don't need it either! 05/15/2022

Brilliant way to see the city. Really enjoyed the experience. They supply little handheld devices for those who don’t speak Germany with a running description of surroundings as you travel. Really enjoyable. They also have food and drink available and easily ordered and brought to you by friendly staff. Would highly recommend this trip

The announcements should be significantly louder. In our case, the tables next door were occupied by families who were talking very lively and loudly. As a result, the information about the sights could not be understood. At our request, the volume was increased a bit, but only parts could be understood. Due to the low temperatures, the journey could not take place on the upper deck for the entire time. Otherwise everything was fine.
