At first we thought that it would be hot in the sunny weather, the opposite was the case. Waiting in the queue in the sun was worth it. A warm welcome, despite the corona conditions. The ride was worth seeing and refreshing and the staff was very friendly. Kapiten was also impressive.

Finally opened the Neckar again. We were lucky with the weather. The crew is incredibly nice, service is very good. The food is good too. The only disadvantage is that it does not say anywhere that children from 12 years of age have to take or show a corona test. Thank God, we were there very early and therefore had no time problem.

We spontaneously booked the trip to Marbach and back with the MS Wilhelma. When driving to the Wilhelma car park, however, we had to buy an online ticket that could also have been mentioned. Because it was not as fast as from the PC at home. This gave us just 10 minutes from the parking garage to the ship. Still ... It was a wonderful Thursday, hardly any people on board and those who were there, all very relaxed. Corona rules were followed, if this is not enough for you, you should stay at home and hope that it will get back to normal without a bad recession. To complain about or to improve, on deck in front and behind, a sun sail would fit well, because the whole tour in the sun is up to too much of a good thing for some, of course you can also go into the inner rooms, but because of that you don't see so much anymore .... All in all a great tour, seen a lot and had a great day. Will test the Flos soon.
