Monarch Queen Cruise Review by Callmebaby
- Sail Date: June 2017
- Destination: Europe River
We were pleasantly surprised that we were taken care of from the moment of arrival at Prague and was so well organised. Part of the package was 3 nights in Prague and then we were picked up to go the ship port at Regensburg. Embarkation was so quick and easy and as we have only ever done ocean cruising previously where you have to wait for hours to embark and disembark because of the volume of passengers, only having around 140 passengers meant it so was much more personal.
The ship is nice and the cabin was nice with a french balcony. To be honest that's all you need as you don't have 'sea days' and really don't have time to spend on the balcony as every day there is exciting things to do. The shower was a little awkward being triangular.
The food was lovely and the wait staff Goran and Palmene were great so we tried to get their section when we could.
Gate 1 really knew that best things to do and had good guides in each port and we were pleasantly surprised at the included tours and we did the optional excursions of Schonbrunn Palace and the dinner in the woods with folkloric band and dancers both of which were great.
The other passengers were mainly from the US but this cruise also had a group from Israel and there was another couple of Aussies on board. Everyone was really fun and we enjoyed sitting with new people for each meal.
I would definitely travel Gate 1 again.

To try and find something bad, the TV reception was very patchy and we could only get news channels, but there is so much to do in each port you don't have time to watch TV. The shower is a little awkward being triangular and the pressure wasn't great.
