What a lovely evening we had on this beautifully decorated Christmassy boat! The staff were friendly, welcoming and efficient. The food was extensive and tasty, so lovely to be able to try typical German food! The beer and wine flowed freely and the views of Cologne as you floated by were gorgeous! Would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful time! Seeing the Cathedral, bridges, and other magnificent sights in Cologne sparkle with lights during the KD River Dinner Cruise is an image we will always remember! In addition, the friendly people and the party atmosphere onboard made it a fun night. My husband and I would definitely do this again.

A great cruise along the river. Excellent value. The only problem we had was finding the actual pier/boat. We almost missed the boat because we kept driving around trying to find it. All in all, a very nice experience.

Amazing atmosphere in the cruise ship. Food variety should be more. The sunset scene is beautiful especially during this season.
