The River Queen sails popular itineraries along the Rhine, the Danube, the Moselle, and the Main rivers in southern Germany. Passengers will be enchanted by the charming, timber-framed houses of Bavaria, the beautiful Gothic cathedral of Cologne, and the ancient ruins of Heidelberg Castle. An area soaked in history and culture, southern Germany is a must-see on any European vacation. Enjoy long stays in city centers, a different port each day, and the convenience of a hotel room that travels with you. The European service staff will bend over backwards to make your vacation as smooth and as memorable as possible.
Traditional steamship on the outside, contemporary river boat on the inside, the River Queen combines the best of both worlds to provide you an authentic, comfortable river cruise experience. Her interior is outfitted in a bold Art Deco design with a stark blue-and-white color scheme. A real fire adds an inviting touch to the Main Lounge, and the public areas are perfect for sipping cocktails as you watch the scenery go by.
The staterooms on the River Queen are lavishly decorated in bichromatic blue and white, with intricately-patterned wallpaper broken up by bold sploshes of solid primary colors. The distinctive Art Deco style is ornate but welcoming, and you'll feel right at home as soon as you sink into the Egyptian cotton bedsheets of your Savoir of England bed. Every stateroom has a river view and comes with a flat-screen TV, a hair dryer, L'Occitane bath products, complimentary bathrobes, and bottled water. Standard staterooms are 151 square feet, and suites have an additional 64 square feet of space.
Dining & Gastronomy
Meals take place in the main dining room and feature expertly-prepared regional cuisine. Beverages you consume are included in the cruise fare, though you may opt to purchase a bottle of your favorite vintage to bring back home with you.
Entertainment and Activities
The destinations visited are the focus of any journey with the River Queen. With a relatively relaxed onboard environment, you'll be grateful for the chance to unwind after a long day exploring the cities. Socialize with your fellow passengers in the Queen Lounge, enjoy some quiet time in the library, or take some me-time in the beauty salon or onboard sauna. The fireplace in the Main Lounge is the perfect place to warm up after a long day browsing Christmas markets on a Christmas cruise, and the sun deck is inviting for passengers during warmer weather.
The River Queen has no formal dress code, so it's best to look up the weather of your destination before your cruise and plan accordingly. Occasionally a Captain's Gala or special event will call for more formal wear, in which case it's nice to have at least one appropriate outfit on hand – a suit or dress shirt and tie for men, dress or pantsuit for ladies.
