River Queen Cruise Review by jamieulle
- Sail Date: March 2018
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Stateroom with French Balcony
We met so many people during the cruise. Sharing cocktails and meals with them made our trip socially entertaining too. There was lounge entertainment every evening and every other night there would be special local entertainment, Dutch dancers, singers and classical musicians. All of them including the lounge performer were very good. Late afternoons we were treated to a strudl making demo and beer tasting. May have missed other because of excursions.
We had Ingrid as the cruise director on both our Uniworld cruises. Her patience on herding a bunch of people around all day has to be appreciated. We got private access to The Hermitage and various other sites during the excursions. A lot of walking so brings some comfortable shoes but well worth the effort. You can also go at a more leasurely pace if you choose, but we were up to the challange and it was great exercise.
Waiters, bar tenders, and housekeeping were all friendly, courteous and helpful. By the second day they would call you by name and anticipate your needs. The breakfast omlet chef was one of my wife's favorites. Breakfast and lunch were a bit routine but dinner was always a new experience.

Otherwise it was clean and comfortable. What more do you need than a bed and a bathroom.

Windmills of KinderdijkRotterdam is an impressive city. Bombed out during WW2 and completely rebuilt. Look for the architectural buildings "The Pencil", "The Horseshoe" and "The Cubes".View All 21 Windmills of Kinderdijk Reviews
Kinderdijk was also a wonderful excursion.
