War für 16:00 gebucht. Danach Tisch in Restaurant gebucht. Schiff ist ausgefallen, deshalb Fahrt um 16:15. Dadurch zu spät im Restaurant und Reservierung verloren. Hätten besser Mal angerufen im Restaurant. Fahrt mit dem Schiff war gut und unterhaltsam. Die Zeitänderung hätte vielleicht vorher kommuniziert werden können. Egal. Trotzdem gute Tour und zu empfehlen.

Die Bootstour durch Lübeck war wirklich schön und hat einen gutes Bild von der Stadt vermittelt. Es gab an Board auf eine Versorgung mit Getränken. Die Boxen am Boot haben jedoch nicht komplett funktioniert so hat man den Guide leider auch nicht ganz verstanden. Einschränkungen durch Corona gab es keine. 3-G wurde nicht geprüft.
