    Was a lot of fun and a lot of info, the pity is when the guide is explaining in your language that the other people speaking other language start talking. The explanation could also be a bit louder, my 80 year old mother couldn't understand everything, even with the buzz of others in between.

    Even if you have to be aware that you only see a fraction of the port, what you get to see is very impressive and you can imagine the real dimensions! Even as a German you get everything explained via audio guide. The crew is very friendly and makes the trip super nice. Food and drink can be bought on board.

    Die Buchung hat perfekt geklappt. Leider war der deutschsprachige Guide an Corona erkrankt und der "Ersatzguide" konnte nur niederländisch und englisch. Für die Kinder war das nicht optimal, da wir Erwachsenen simultan zu übersetzen versuchten. Der Guide gab sich viel Mühe und es war dennoch eine schöne Rundfahrt. Man bekommt einen Eindruck vom Hafen und hat einen tollen Blick auf die Skyline. Man muss ich im Klaren sein, dass man nur einen kleinen Teil des Hafens sieht. Dieser ist etwa 40 km lang. Wer noch mehr vom Hafen sehen möchte, sollte auf der A15 Richtung Westen fahren oder auf der anderen Seite nach Hoek van Holland. Da kann man die großen Pötte sehen.
