Our voucher was swapped for tickets at a booth beside the Elbe River and we joined a queue at dock number 4. The boat was large with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. Snacks and meals were available for purchase as well as a variety of drinks. The commentary was in German and English at various intervals of the ride and provided good information. We were lucky with 80 degree weather!
The museum card allowed to visit several museums without standing in line for tickets. However a computer printout with a bar code of the museum card voucher bought online should have bern sufficient without a need to exchange it for a formal card in the Dresden Information office.
Very relaxing pleasant trip down the river to Meissen which is a beautiful town well worth visiting. Unfortunately the English commentary was difficult to hear and not given on the way back. Also upstairs, the preferred seating, was not opened and no explanation was available.
The ship is huge and comfortable. You can buy something to eat and drink on the board. Prices are high but quite normal as for such occasion. You can hear the infos about the things on the way in German and English.
wonderful ride. very smooth, mostly friendly staff....it was a cool experience and a much more interesting way to get from point A to point B
