Chilling out is the new partying

We need just a bit more patience until rambunctious parties and celebrations are possible and allowed on board the KD river cruise ships again. The Covid-19 pandemic means that carefree partying and dancing in large groups is not allowed yet. But that’s no reason to mope around. The new chillout evening cruises in Cologne and Düsseldorf are an ideal alternative to pass the time. The two-hour evening cruises will be offered in the two metropolises on the Rhine Thursdays to Saturdays starting in May. They set sail at 8 pm.

It’s all about winding down and feeling good

Passengers make themselves comfortable on the open deck and enjoy the Cologne or Düssel­dorf city skyline with a cool Kölsch or Alt beer or a sparkling cocktail. A live DJ creates the perfect sunset mood with laid-back lounge tunes. Guests can enjoy something tasty from the open deck BBQ, weather permitting. After a hard day’s work, pure relaxation awaits. The evening panoramic cruises are all about winding down and feeling good. Relax on the open deck of the large KD boats with your colleagues and friends. Chilling out is the new partying. The lounge concept proved a huge hit last summer, as demonstrated by its popularity with guests and their feedback. KD is happy to fulfil their wish for these cruises to continue. MS RheinEnergie will be in action in Cologne; MS Loreley is expected to set sail in Düsseldorf. The open decks offer plenty of space to relax safely and keep a distance from other passengers. MS RheinEnergie, for example, has an area of around 1,500 square metres on the open deck alone.

A good mood at the end of a day’s work

The new two-hour evening cruises with a chillout lounge mood are perfect for many people who have had their working conditions changed during the coronavirus times. After all, working days can be quite exhausting with meetings taking the form of video and telephone conferences and answering countless e-mails. There are no more casual chats with colleagues in the kitchen, or lunch breaks together in the canteen. So an evening cruise on board a KD boat makes a great change for after work – and, on top of that, of course, is completely compliant with Covid-19 regulations. The same goes for anyone working from home.

Tried-and-tested hygiene concept

The hygiene and safety concept, which was prepared right at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, has been constantly enhanced and adapted to the current conditions. Tickets can be purchased online or contactless on site. In the queues, when boarding and on board, passengers must keep a distance of at least 1.5 metres, which is indicated by signs and floor markings. There is a route guidance concept on the boats to direct visitors along a one-way system. The tables are placed at a distance from one another. Disinfectant dispensers are available at the entrance and on board. Toilets, handrails and door handles are regularly cleaned and disinfected. With these conditions, there is nothing standing in the way of a leisurely cruise into the sunset.

The magnificent views make the troubles of everyday life fade into the background for a few hours. In Düsseldorf, guests are enveloped by the fantastic backdrop of the old town and the MedienHafen port. In Cologne, the boat tour takes you past the old town, the Rheinauhafen port with its chocolate museum and the crane houses. Tip from railing to railing: The chillout evening cruises are a superb opportunity to get to know the pearls of both cities better. People of Cologne can look at the beauty of Düsseldorf and vice versa. Yes, that is possible! And with the new TourGuide, information about the route is sent directly to your smartphone via Wi-Fi. This way, Cologne residents can learn something about Düsseldorf and the other way around.
