Berlin to Stralsund good with a few exceptions

18 Aug 2022

Our trip from Berlin to Stralsund was really good. The food was excellent. Not one bad meal. The service on board wonderful. However, we feel there needs to be a re-design of the route booklet we followed each day. The street names are not marked on the map itself. Instead they are on an adjacent page written out longhand, which is impossible to follow while biking. Perhaps a side by side design with map on one side and written directions with street names on the other , or street names written boldly on the map. There were many of us along the way on the path considering which way to go. Better would be downloadable bike routes via Google Maps and a spot on the handle bars for a phone. I think the paper map stuck in a pouch under plastic that has to have its pages turned in route is obsolete. No one travels anymore using a paper map. I can see having it as backup in case there is no gps service, but I would have enjoyed the trip so much more had I had a better way to know the path. Some of the paths we were on seemed very rugged and not well maintained. Also, the Princess is an older ship and the rooms have windows that don’t open, and the rooms are a bit stinky of mildew. Our room was above a tank of sorts, so we had sewage smell in our room for days in addition to the mildew smell. The staff worked to help mask it with sprays and other techniques. I won’t travel on an older ship again.

Hi Susan, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We are extremely grateful that you took the time to send us your feedback about our Berlin Stralsund tour on board of the Princess. I read through your feedback carefully, and consider your suggestion to be very insightful. I will pass it on to our Partner SE-Tours who organized this tour to see if they could implement this change in the upcoming season. Please know that on all our tours in Holland we use a GPS application which you can use on your mobile phone. Thanks once again. Best, Romy
