All in all a successful boat trip. But the boats are overbooked, so sometimes you're stuck on the railing for the hour because all the seats are gone, but as long as you don't arrive as late as I managed with my unlimited talent, you can avoid that , by being at the meeting point at least 15 minutes beforehand

Good overall way to see the highlights of Berlin. If you get the audio tour you need to collect a handheld audio device when you first get on the ship. Will probably have to ask someone for the audio tour device. Otherwise the speaker on the ship only announced the building and landmarks in German.

When boarding the ship we were not told how to get the audio guide. After being seated and realizing no one was passing them out, we had to find staff and ask how to get one. And then we were charged 2 Euros each. By that time the trip started and we missed approx 1/4 if the commentary.
