Was a super nice ride with great service staff. Best weather not too crowded. Precisely. For parents with small children, I would recommend taking something to play or draw with them. It was a bit too long for the little ones (my daughter 6 years old). But still a great experience for the whole family.

Hello, booking the tickets for 4 people was totally easy online. After about 5 minutes, the QR code was already on my cell phone. You shouldn't be discouraged even when there's a large crowd - there's enough space for everyone. The information provided by the ship's staff was very interesting and the service was quick. We'd love to come back. See you soon!

The atmosphere on the ship was really very pleasant. The service, courteous with the operation, quite friendly and binding. The equipment of the ship, great. Wheelchair users have also been considered. Even in the corona situation, the hygiene recommendations were observed by everyone and pointed out again by the staff.
