Life aboard River Queen
In March and April every year River Queen offers 7-night Tulips Time cruises between Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Brussels (Belgium). From late March to November River Queen sails the Rhine-Moselle rivers over 7 nights from Amsterdam to Basel (Switzerland), passing all the famous castles and visiting Luxembourg. During April to October 2020 she offers an 11-night Moselle & Rhine cruise from Frankfurt to Baden-Baden. The latter is 10 km from the Rhine, and is the centre of natural springs and health resorts. These cruises are also 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.

River Queen has an exterior resembling the steamships of the 1930s and an elegant Art Deco interior. The vessel combines quality craftsmanship and the latest technical innovations. She was refurbished in 2010. Included in the cruise are all gratuities, first-class hotels (according to the cruise), all shore excursions with audio headphones, and local English-speaking guides. Uniworld was awarded Cruise Critic Editors’ Picks 2018 as Best River Cruise Line.

Accommodation
All cabins are outside, comfortable, and maintained by twice-a-day service. All have premium bedding, controllable AC, direct-dial telephone, flat-screen TV with satellite, storage, built-in safe, vanity, hair dryer, bathrobes, and compact bathroom fitted out with L’Occitane products. Lower deck cabins have head-height windows, and middle deck staterooms have twin panoramic windows, and upper deck staterooms have twin full-height panoramic windows. An elevator services the middle and upper accommodation decks. Adjoining staterooms are available. Guest laundry and ironing facilities are available.

Each of the 64 staterooms is lavishly furnished with superior bedding, and outside view. The 20 staterooms on the top enclosed deck have French Balconies. The four Suites (20 sq.m.) on this deck 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 on the top Reception deck 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 and Dinners. 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. 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 the Captain’s Lounge and Library. 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.
