River Empress Overview

Uniworld's River Empress sails between March and October each year. Take a 7- or 10-night cruise between Basel (Switzerland) and Amsterdam on the Rhine River, passing all the famed castles. (River Queen and S.S. Antoinette also run the same 7-night itinerary.) These cruises are for those who appreciate history and architecture from Roman times, Medieval towns and castles, connoisseurs of wine, beer and food, and lovers of music. The ship is part of the most luxurious fleet in Europe. On selected dates look out for the Generations Programs and the Jewish Heritage Programs.

Accommodation

All cabins are outside, comfortable, and maintained by twice-a-day service. All have premium bedding, pillow options, controllable AC, direct-dial telephone, flat-screen TV with infotainment, storage, built-in safe, vanity, hair dryer, bathrobes, and compact marble bathroom fitted out with Hermès bath products. Lower deck cabins have a wide head-height window, and middle deck staterooms have a large panoramic window. An elevator services all three interior decks.

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.

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. Visiting entertainers come on board along the route. A Family-Friendly program is offered during school holiday times.
