Arrived to the ticket office at the pier 9am where we exchanged our vouchers for our tickets and were advised which pier to go to. We boarded shortly after and departed at 9.30. The boat is large with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. You...More

For an hr boat ride it was ok. If you didn't get a table you were ignored by the server. I would not put this in my to do list but if you are in the area it's a cheap way to pass some time

Just back from this trip. The live commentary is a lie, just a few prerecord messages mostly saying you are about to come into one town or another. We had a lovely sunny day so it was relaxing. Boat is good and food and drinks...More

While the section of the Rhine around is not the most picturesque the cruise meandered an hour upstream past riverfront architecture, upscale homes, parks and beaches and then heads north of the city. You dont have to order food or drinks but it is available....More

This is a very relaxing way to spend a whole day. The boat leaves at 09:30 and gets back at 19:30. You can hop on and off, but the snag is you will then have to wait at that point for the boat to pick...More

All said, it was a pleasant experience, but I think there are prettier and more interesting stretches on the Rhein to see. We did the cruise from Cologne to Koenigswinter. Took several hours to get there, then the SeaLife exhibit was disappointing and small. Turned...More

We had done a different KD cruise earlier in the day which will be under a separate review, so this 1 hour cruise comparatively was disappointing. Agree with PaulLondonTraveller, Cologne is small and this cruise really doesn’t have much as there isn’t much to see....More

this one hour cruise is not worth doing, basically just going up and down the river, better to choice one of the other option and longer tour, some include the dinner.

To be honest, I’m not sure they can do much about this as there’s only about a few hundred meters of the bank to see. As cologne is very small and all in one area (where to boat leaves from). This seemed more about making...More
