Relaxed with small highlights (locks & shore experiences), delicious and sufficient buffet food, unobtrusive live music ... with a glass or two of red wine ;-)

The speed is very good and there are several seating options. The time and route are adequate. Not too much, not too little. Ideal to go alone
