  • Enjoyable cruise up the Rhine with buffet dinner and music entertainment.

  • What a fantastic experience. Everything was perfect so Christmassy. Food was delicious and plenty of it and it was piping hot. Drink, decorations, table settings and staff all first class. There was a great band on. We were in a party of 4 we all had an amazing night. Great value for money. I would highly recommend this cruise.
    I would like to thank Isidro Sid Seguin and Virnie Modarong who made the whole experience so very special the were so attentive. I would definately do this again

  • The cruise was ok with good table service, but the food wasn't that great. Some of the ship was blocked off, so we weren't able to sit on top.

  • great tour wortwhile great value for money

  • The dinner cruise was amazing and e had fun. We were realy pleased whit everything. The only draw back was that thw names of the food was written only in German it would have helped if they were written also in English.

  • This was really excellent and tremendous value for money. The boat was beautifully decorated and the live band were really good so there was a proper party atmosphere. The food was plentiful and of a very high standard (the smoked salmon was superb; so were all the meat dishes) . Service was really attentive and your glass was refilled as soon as it started to empty. The wines were good quality, there was bottled water at every table and the beer was the excellent locally brewed kolsch. The only thing we hadn't expected was to be seated with other people but the organisers had thoughtfully put us with another a British couple (in fact, they turned out to be Welsh, like us). and we really enjoyed their company. We didn't really register the scenery as obviously it was dark and we were involved in the food and the party atmosphere but when we went up on deck we saw great views of the best of Colognr, ie the cathedral. The boat is conveniently moored ten minutes walk from the main station and the cathedral so very easy to get to and from. All in all, loved it and would recommend it to anyone. Oh, and the locals love to dance!!

  • we booked this as part of a Christmas break and my wife wanted to travel down the rhine. the booking process was simple and having located the boat it was simple to get on. however having just walked on we couldn't find a seat as all tables were already booked. this was quickly rectified by going to a member of staff but it would have been nice to know in advance. once on board the food and drink were plentiful and the other table guests were good company with very good service from the staff on board and no language problems, despite most people on board being local and enjoying their Christmas parties

  • This was a a lovely trip. It was very cold outside, but the boat was very warm and comfortable. The staff was wonderful, the food was very good! We were able to get through the buffet line near the beginning, but when my husband went back for seconds, it was still just as delicious. Several kinds of meat were served, a salad bar, vegetables, soup, and all the wine or beer you could drink. The view was beautiful from the boat, but hard to take good pictures as it was moving. It lasted three hours. There was a live band aboard, but we were on the other side of ship, so the music was nicely in the background. Many people danced, and it was quite a party! There was much laughing and fun had by all!

  • Good evening. Good food. Live band.

  • Great value for money, well organised and entertaining evening. Highly recommended
