We found the castle tour great. 1. We had great weather, which is why the outside areas on the ship were fully utilized. The interior was only of limited use due to the pandemic. 2. The service on board was excellent. 3. The hygiene regulations were implemented well and adhered to. 4. The explanations of the sights were good and comprehensive. 5. The dates mentioned were met 100%.

Noisy, but Good

Good English audio reviews, but again, a group with a lot of noise spoiled it. Too hot for the outside deck which would have made the sound better. One poor soul passed out from beer and too much sun. Do it, but try to pick a cooler day than we did. Beautiful boat.

It was fun

Interesting route. The permanent explanations in German and English were - since almost without a break - a little too extensive and therefore annoying. I would have liked to have a little more peace and quiet in between. Two waiters on a large ship - we are not even fully booked - are not enough. First option to order drinks after 35 minutes. *** Recommended ****
