It was a great trip. There were some issues. Nowhere on the ticket and emails was the name of the ship mentioned. We went to find out in advance and struggled to find the right place. Your ship was there, but we did not know if it was going to be ours or not.

Es war eine nette Schiffsreise. Wir haben allerdings nicht sehr viel von dem Hafen gesehen. Der Hinweis, dass man Voucher gegen Ticket eintauschen muss, hat nicht ganz gestimmt. Es gab nämlich keinen Ticketschalter. Aber zum Glück waren wir auf der Passagierliste.

Ik kende deze rondvaart al. Heb deze eerder gedaan een paar jaar geleden. Vond het de moeite waard om de rondvaart nog een keer te maken. Mooie skyline van Rotterdam en je krijgt een beetje een beeld van wat er zich in de haven afspeelt. Met die enorme schepen en containers etc. En dit is nog maar een klein deel van de haven. De boot en service zijn prima, dus gewoon doen.
