It was a great river boat cruise for the money however they lost a star because the service was not great… in 3 hours the service came twice once to get my order once to payout. Me and everyone around me needed some drinks but the server just kept saying “one second” but never came back. We tried to order from the bar but they said we needed to order from the server. It was almost 100F so we all got pretty dehydrated and overheated by the end.

We had a great time and didn't regret booking the cruise. The greeting at ticket control was very warm. Luckily there was no live music, as described in another review. You could sit inside and outside and the gastronomic service was very nice and above all fast. On the way something was said about the sights and the places. It wasn't too long either, and only occasionally. In Neckarsteinach we then visited the castles and went out to eat and then later relaxed by boat back to HD. It was like vacation! Again any time :-)
