Day Cruise on Rhine

I have family visiting from the states and they would like to do a Rhine River cruise. Any suggestions on the best place to start from if we will be traveling up from Stuttgart. And I have been told to take the boat one way and the train back to our starting point, is this best?

Best place to start: Bingen

Yes. A return trip by boat is very time consuming. Furthermore Rhine upstream is much slower than downstream. A further advantage is that if you buy e.g. a Rheinland-Pfalz Ticket before you buy the boat ticket you'll get a 20% discount on the boat fare (KD boats only).

Thank you! So, is there somewhere to buy a train ticket before we board the boat or would I have to buy that online?
