River Empress Cruise Review by WashingtonTraveler

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2018
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Stateroom with French Balcony

Very friendly welcome on this nice river boat. Cabin and bathroom small but very well decorated and efficiently furnished. All public areas are lovely. The service thoughout was good, at times too attentive, with someone passing by the table every few minutes to enquire if anything was needed. The self service laundry was very useful. The only disappointments were dinners and wine selection. White wine drinkers who do not like reisling will be unhappy with the daily wine offerings - same if you are not a drinker of German reds. For the price of this cruise, would have expected a better quality and choice. Premium wines were available but rather expensive.

Shore excursions were mixed - Amsterdam and Strasbourg excellent, others average to good. Overall, the trip was pleasant even though, at that time of year, the weather did not cooperate.

Currently planning a river cruise in Portugal. As F&B is an important part of our travel, need to better check what is available prior to reserving.
