If I had known when I was booking that 95% of the passengers were German I probably would have chosen a different holiday. The few other British people were very anti Germans and unpleasant. Communication with the rest of the passengers was limited due to the language barrier although they were friendly. As I had hoped it would be a very sociable holiday this was a disappointment.
The captain had limited English and we therefore got limited information, he spoke excellent German and they were satisfied with the amount of information provided.
