Absolutely recommendable. We sailed around the harbor on the "Prinzess" in the evening glow of lights. Impressive (we are landlubbers) and the one and a half hours were, unfortunately, over far too quickly. Marvin told us interesting and funny stories. Simply great and we really enjoyed it. Thank you!

Cruise was lovely but it got quite fogged up inside. There wasnt any instructions for non-german speakers given and the link to the audio guide from the headout app didn't work. I had to manually search the cruise company and find it and then search for a QR code on the ship. The guide itself was ok but kept glitching and repeating the same sections. Could have just been a better overall experience, but the cruise itself was great if you went onto the outside deck.

A pleasant tour of Hamburg's harbor, with commentary in German and therefore only partly understandable as a Frenchwoman, but the night view is still impressive.

das Wetter war super und die Stimmung auf dem Schiff war heiter und gelöst. Da es voll und laut war, konnte man den Ansager nicht gut verstehen.

Very nice cruise! The port visit is well worth the detour. Too bad the commentary app doesn't work very well. A classic audio guide system would certainly be more suitable!

A grand evening cruise experience

Embark on a mesmerizing hour-long cruise through the historic Hamburg Harbor, an adventure that begins as dusk falls and the city lights begin to twinkle. Step aboard the large ship and ready yourself to be enthralled by iconic landmarks like the Elbphilharmonie, standing as a beacon of music and art in the city, lit up brilliantly against the evening sky. As you cruise along, be swept away by the breathtaking views of the cityscape reflecting off the calm harbor waters, while a live German commentary narrates the rich history and cultural significance of the sights, effortlessly weaving in intriguing facts.

Savoring Hamburg's evening charm & the ship's pleasures

This unforgettable journey extends beyond the harbor, cruising past the bustling fish market and the container port. As the city's lifeblood flows past you, retreat to the onboard bar for a range of refreshments and snacks, while soaking in the panoramic harbor views from the open deck. Don't miss the opportunity to capture fantastic nighttime photos, as the glittering city lights provide a magical backdrop.
