  • The food was amazing - hot and cold items and delicious. One complimentary drink, but had additional beverages for purchase. They do have someone taking photos for a fee unhappy they didn't take one as a couple - just individual ones. Views were mostly of homes so not exciting. Wait staff just ok not overly friendly. Mix of Christmas tunes and non-holiday music playing in the background. The city of Cologne itself very lovely!!!!

  • Nice day on the water, well put together brunch cruise with attentive staff.

  • Great cruise ideal for a family christmass celebration great food great views good entertainment a trip to remember

  • we missed this tour did do it a couple of years ago though, fantastic

  • Really enjoyed this Brunch Cruise!! The staff was so friendly and accommodating and the food was amazing!!! Any kind of bread, cheese, or smoked fish you could think of. Also, a buffet line with warm foods. The tables are assigned and there really isn't a bad seat, we were on an interior table and still enjoyed the views. After the meal, you could wander about and take pictures or just enjoy the scenery.
    Would recommend this to anyone that enjoys a great meal and time with family/friends !!

  • It's a nice experience I would recommend this tour.

  • Nice cruise, food was nothing special and entertainment was so-so

  • Fantastic welcome as soon as we boarded the ship. Very friendly staff, good food and reasonable drinks prices. Shame about the weather but it was in December :-

  • Good fun, good food, lovely weather for December.

  • This trip was absolutely marvellous. We were delighted with the quality and style of the whole morning. The food was lovely, the service great and the boat was stunning. We had a great view and could even see the live entertainment. I would highly recommend this trip and Viator to anyone considering booking something of this nature. THANK YOU everyone from 6 very happy people in Cologne
