Booked the 3 hour sunset cruise, it was amazing! Our skipper, Marvin, was very kind and funny. He made the trip enjoyable, taught us all the safety information we needed, allowed us to wander the boat as we wish. We were even allowed to eat/drink anything we brought. My boyfriend actually proposed to me on this cruise and Marvin and the others on the boat with us turned it into a party/celebration. I couldn’t have asked for a better time! We cheers and sat around and talked, it felt like a big family! It was a bit chilly out on the water so bring a coat! We will be coming back in two years and will definitely rebook this cruise.

This was a wonderful tour. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and made sure we had enough time to enjoy each place and have a bit of shopping and snack time as well. Loved getting to use public transportation. Both Rostock and Warnemunde were surprise gems on our cruise.

We were so lucky since the weather was perfect so we saw a stunning sunset on the Sea. It was an amazing trip with a very nice staff!

wir waren um die 2,5 stunden unterwegs und es wurde nicht langweilig. ein sehr schönes konzept.

arrived on time at cruise terminal.. brought us back with time to spare. Very professional.
