What people are saying about Stuttgart

Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 22 reviews

I was a little concerned when I read previous reviews that I might have a hard time navigating my way to dock. My fears were abated by excellent directions that came with the activity reminder. The boat, the crew, the service, food snd guests were top-notch. I had an excellent roundtrip and would definitely recommend as a fun memory whether or go solo for relaxation, as a couple’s date or in a group for a party.

Finally opened the Neckar again. We were lucky with the weather. The crew is incredibly nice, service is very good. The food is good too. The only disadvantage is that it does not say anywhere that children from 12 years of age have to take or show a corona test. Thank God, we were there very early and therefore had no time problem.

At first we thought that it would be hot in the sunny weather, the opposite was the case. Waiting in the queue in the sun was worth it. A warm welcome, despite the corona conditions. The ride was worth seeing and refreshing and the staff was very friendly. Kapiten was also impressive.

It was a great evening! Immanuel told us very interesting things about whiskey with a lot of charm and humor. It was a successful gift for my husband's 60th birthday! Thanks very much! Greetings... Sandra Gildhorn

A very nice and friendly staff, everyone from the captain to the ground staff has been told that what they do is fun. We also found the short stories that were recorded to be very amusing but also informative.
