Really enjoyable - the boat was nicely decorated and lovely and warm when it was sub zero outside . excellent singer playing the keyboard . Good party atmosphere . Excellent bar staff and drinks .Not overcrowded either. Better than expected for the price paid

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.

We loved this experience. So many highlights! But first, I forgot to check the newest COV-19 guidelines (2G +) and didn’t bring a negative test. We had only proof of vaccination. And the employee at the counter was so nice and gave us an option to come to the later cruise (4 pm). I also liked that he insisted that the rules are to be kept. I felt saver this way. But back to the cruise. It was so lovely. The whole staff was so kind and patient. Not only man at the counter but also the guy checking the tickets, the waiters (especially) and the singer. His voice was so calm and I really enjoyed his choice of songs (many many sang in english). He was singing the whole cruise! The interior felt also very cosy, toilets were clean, it was warm inside. Mulled wine was delicious, and so was the peas soup. I have nothing to complain about! I would love to go again :-)
