The cruise was very lovely and got to see the Rotterdam city skyline, beautiful architecture of the bridges and an old cruise liner. I appreciated the audio guide came in several languages German , French and English I believe . The captain also spoke Dutch of course so that helped locals who were also onboard. The euro mast ticket is only for the platform viewing only , however I will say for me that was high enough and got a good 360 of the city.

Super nice guide and wonderful boat. Nice comfi with the option of a drink. Also clean sanitary facilities Enzo. But above all very pleasant. Sadly it was like that.

Very nice! And John is a great guide! My American friends were very happy that they could now also see Rotterdam. A lunch in the Euromast made the outing complete!

It was a very nice day. In 1 hour you sail along the beautiful sights of Rotterdam. Beautiful!

Nice boat. Friendly staff. Bar and snacks available. Lovely views of the city.
