There was a nice Christmas atmosphere on the ship. The ship was beautiful and the music very pleasant. But when I booked the trip, I thought that you would do a city tour with explanations. Unfortunately, anyone who expects this is wrong. Live Christmas music is played from when you put it off to when you put it on, which was lovely. Unfortunately, no explanations were given about Cologne. Nevertheless, we found the trip to be nice. A pleasant change from the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season.

It's unbelievable how much they have to offer at such a reasonable price! We took the 4pm ride and it was perfect because you could see an amazing view during daylight, watch a beautiful sunset and enjoy the night lights towards the end of the trip. The live music and warm cup of coffee perfected the vibe.

Nice time spent on the ship with live music and mulled wine. In addition, guests can also purchase additional food and drinks for a fee. The ticket does not have to be converted into a ticket from the shipping company beforehand. Simply scanning the Qr code on the ship is enough. The musician had a pleasant tone and sang beautiful Christmas carols.
