The best boat party cruise in Germany is back and this time we are in the funky and vibrant city of Cologne, cruising up and down the Rhein in fine style. With so much to see and do in this amazing city, we figured that you guys would love to make it a little weekend trip, so we are having three events for you.

‘BBQ Boat Party Cruise’ – Delicious food, the hottest music and the best vibes guaranteed. As always No bull-crap, No stiffness, ONLY non-stop fun and good energy. Enjoy also a special live Steel Pan performance from one of the best steel-pan groups in Europe, Calysonic Steel Orchestra. Pure Panorama vibes!

We leave on the dot, return to the dock. We step off the boat in the ‘Old City’, famous for cool atmosphere, its many bars and busy nightlife. The perfect location for the people still standing and looking to carry on.
