About the Hotel
Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, owners of a handful of luxury cruising vessels, has redefined the floating holiday to include intimate ships that are lavishly appointed and agile enough to master the narrow waterways that massive ships must bypass. This is perhaps best illustrated aboard the 134-guest River Empress, which glides along such storied rivers as the Rhine, Main and Danube, as well as scenic waterways and canals. Guests are pampered behind the doors of their river view staterooms replete with generous built-in closets, air conditioning, flat-panel televisions and private baths. There are several public rooms, including a lounge with full-bar service and panoramic restaurants with open seating policies.
The River Empress offers magical itineraries that journey through the scenic rivers of Amsterdam, Budapest and Antwerp. Ferry your way to the banks of Hungary, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands with their awe-inspiring architecture and historic sites. Discover landscapes of colorful canals, airbrushed windmills, blankets of tulips, and priceless works of art created from the hands of Rubens, Rembrandt and van Gogh. Not only are the itineraries perfectly paced, they are also palate pleasing - with samplings of handmade Belgian chocolates, warm waffles smothered in berries and cream, and rich cheeses paired with robust beer. With Uniworld's all-inclusive cruising program, you enjoy daily meals onboard, unlimited beverages, complimentary wireless Internet access, plus an ample amount of shore excursions hosted by English-speaking guides.
