Life aboard River Ambassador
River Ambassador sails from late March to early November, cruising the Moselle-Rhine-Main-Danube river system. During March and April she runs a 7-night Holland and Belgium cruise at tulip time, between Brussels and Amsterdam. For the other months she runs three cruises itineraries. A 9-night cruise of the upper Danube departs Vienna and upstream to Nuremberg, then by rail to Prague. A superb 14-night cruise departs Basel (Switzerland) down the Rhine to the Main and Danube rivers, and on to Vienna. A 9-night cruise departs Prague by coach to the Danube, then travels upstream via the Main and Rhine Rivers to Basel in Switzerland. These cruises are for Romantics, history buffs, wine connoisseurs and nature lovers. Summer sailings welcome families with a special family program.

River Ambassador was built in 1993 and completely refurbished in 2011. It has an impressive two-story lobby, extra-large picture windows, and exquisitely upholstered chairs and sofas. Included in the cruise are first-class hotels (according to the cruise), all meals with complimentary dinner drinks, 24-hour specialty coffee and tea bar, bottled water, all shore excursions with audio headphones, local English-speaking guides, use of bicycles, Captain’s Welcome Gala and Farewell Dinner, and all transfers. There is free Internet access and Wi-Fi in public areas. River Ambassador was named one of the "Top River Ships" in Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2013.

Accommodation
All cabins are outside, comfortable, and maintained by twice-a-day service. All have premium bedding (fixed queen-size), pillow options, controllable AC, direct-dial telephone, flat-screen TV with infotainment, storage, built-in safe, vanity, hair dryer, bathrobes, and compact bathroom fitted out with L’Occitane products. Lower deck cabins have panoramic picture windows. Ambassador has no elevator.

One half of the staterooms have French balconies (including the Suites). The four Suites have extra amenities including a bottle of wine on arrival, larger sitting area, private DVD player, slippers, daily fruit and cookie plate, refrigerator, morning coffee and tea, Nespresso coffee machine and fine teas, continental breakfast, evening amuse-bouche, shoe shine, and free laundry service.

Food and Dining
The Restaurant is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides and provides open seating. Dining is acclaimed as “best-of-the-best” by observers of the river cruise industry. Breakfasts and lunches are full buffet with an extensive array of hot and cold items, and individually prepared items are available. Menu items change daily, follow the region and season, and include Continental and American preparations. Local and regional specialities are featured. Dinner is open-seating with four courses. Accompanying dinner are fine wines and a selection of beers and soft drinks.

Alternatively, dine al fresco at lunch and dinner on the Sun Deck during good weather. Menus follow the river, using fresh local ingredients and cuisines. Special dietary and vegetarian requests are catered for. Afternoon tea is served in the main lounge. All day Bistro Menu is for snacks. The specialty coffee and tea bar is open around the clock. Dining features include the Captain’s Welcome and Farewell Receptions, Welcome and Farewell Gala Dinners, and the ‘Epicurean Adventurer Program’. Uniworld received the TravelAge West Wave Award Editor’s Pick 2014 “Best Overall Cruise Line for River Cruising”.

Entertainment
The cruise focus is on exploration and walking tours with local guides. Tour variations continue to expand to meet the requests of guests: you have a choice of five ways to explore, according to your wishes. Travel lectures expand your knowledge of the regions visited, and the Epicurean Adventurer Program enhances your appreciation of local cuisine ashore. Visiting entertainers come on board along the route. A Family-Friendly program is offered during school holiday times.

Public areas include the Main Lounge with a full-service bar, and library/game room. The sun deck (parts of which is enclosed) has deck chairs, and chess and shuffleboard. Health facilities include a fitness room with jet massage shower cabin, massage room and boutique. Bicycles and Nordic walking sticks are provided for self-organised sight-seeing.
