The Advent afternoon tea cruise along the Rhine was two hours long with live music and St Nicholas there to visit all the children. It was very agreeable, especially with all the German families singing along (words provided). The boat was beautifully decorated and luxurious.

Yes, you can hop on and off at different stops. However, watch your time as the ships stop running and you could be stuck over night somewhere or you’ll need to catch a train back to where you want to be.
