Travelling from Mainz to Koblenz

We are planning to travel on Sep 1st from mainz to koblenz. In KD Rhine river cruise we are not able to find the exact cruise timetable. We will reach mainz @ 10.30 AM and we booked our return train @ 6 o clock from cologne. What is the expected travelling cruise travel time in rhine river and KD cruise frequency from mainz to koblenz? From Koblenz we are planning to travel cologne by train and want to spend some times over there. It will be great if anyone shares experience on this

KD timetable:

So there is no way to cruise all the way from Mainz to Koblenz, if you only arrive at 10:30, let alone visit Cologne afterwards.

I suggest you take the train from Mainz to Bingen(Stadt), and only cruise to St. Goar or Boppard. You can then take the train from there to Cologne for a very short visit, but I would not recommend it.

An alternative would be to take the train all the way from Mainz to Cologne via Koblenz. This is a scenic train ride and you could stop off at one of the small towns in the Middle Rhine Valley. That way you would have at least a few hours for Cologne. - If you follow my earlier advice, you can at most have a glimpse at the cathedral and not see anything else of the city.
