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 :-)

Sightseeing exhibition, a visit is absolutely worth it. On the one hand I am very impressed by the representation of the inside of a person - the possibility to show that with these plastinates is awesome. I also liked the common thread "The Anatomy of Happiness" that runs through the entire exhibition. The audio guide provides additional information about the individual stations - this is also very interesting and entertaining

Very interesting exhibition both in a medical and artistic context

Crew was on time and we experienced very good scenery...

Very friendly and attentive staff!! Thanks very much!
