Unfortunately, it was not evident when booking that you can get on board 30 minutes in advance. We therefore had seats in the stern below (outdoors). Unfortunately we were not served there - despite cards on the table. A trilingual tape will be played on the tour, all explanations first in Dutch, then English and then German. For us, the English was easier to understand, not least because it was a bit louder and the voice of the German speaker was difficult to hear. Lots of interesting information, in between a bit lengthy, the port is just very big :-) Always recommended in good weather ...

Nice cruise with good, friendly service. The prices of food and drinks are very good! Get everything on board. The description on your site stated that only an English-speaking guide would provide information. This was not the case! There was information in English, German flat Rotterdam guide. Awesome! It might be useful to mention this on your site.

Nice cruise. It was a bit on the fresh side despite being inside. The door to the deck was probably open for ventilation. It was good that we had a jacket with us. There was a nice talk about what could be seen in 3 languages. The menu was sufficient and served quickly. The disadvantage that you can only pay in cash.
