Everything was well planned. Only the staff was extremely careless with the drinks if we hadn't gotten something ourselves, we would have died of thirst. There was no staff in sight and if there was then they looked the other way. Because other guests didn't feel better. Food worked very well. Drinks 0 stars

Overall everything was very nice. Unfortunately the service was very bad. One of 5 people was seen working, who of course Dan was in a very bad mood and took it out on the passengers. Nobody cleared tables or asked if you wanted something else. The food tasted perfect. Unfortunately, you never know when what will happen at what time. Unfortunately, nothing is discussed and shared with us, if you asked Dan you were immediately shouted at. I also think it's a shame that you can't reserve a seat on the roof.

I really liked the trip. Very friendly attentive staff. The ship was comfortable. It was possible to accommodate both on the open deck and inside the ship. It was a hot day, but the air conditioners worked and it was comfortable. Very tasty meals were served throughout the day. The town of Dürstein is ancient and very cute. Two hours was enough for his examination.
