Smoking on the outdoor decks is allowed on special trips (charter trips, experience trips). Smoking is generally not permitted in the indoor areas.

What are charter trips? A private person or a company rents a boat exclusively for an event > Smoking on the outdoor deck is then allowed.

What are experience trips? Events that are held within Lakes Shipping programme and are not carried out within the framework of scheduled cruises. These are for example, dance trips, gourmet trips, gastronomic trips, church pilgrimage trips etc. > Smoking on the outdoor deck is then allowed.
However, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day trips are published in the sailing program but are held within the framework of regular scheduled sailings (big round-trip cruises) > Here the general smoking ban applies.
