River Queen overview

The minute you step on board the River Queen you'll notice you are on the most unique river cruise ship in Europe. You'll find exteriors resembling a 1930's grand-river steamship, plush interior decor reminiscent of Art Deco styling and modern day amenities one would expect to find on any of today's sailing ships. Delicious meals that are inspired by visited regions are served in the Panorama Restaurant while offering captivating views from the floor to ceiling windows. After a day of sight seeing onshore, warm up next to the inviting fireplace for a drink and good conversation in the main lounge or find solitude in the soft leather chairs and sofas of the Club Lounge, a perfect place to sip an after diner cordial. With impeccable service, delicious culinary cuisine, nightly entertainment and exciting ports of call, you'll discover what it means to cruise with the Queen of the river.

Go with the Best You Deserve It by Europe

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: River Queen / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

The most difficult part of the cruise is having it come to an end. It was one of those trips you always hope for but don't always get. Could not have asked for anything better, even the weather was great.

Wow! Amazing! by catalinacurtin

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: River Queen / Destination: Europe

Our cruise was exceptional. The meals were the best we have ever experienced on any of our previous river or ocean cruises. Excellent service and wonderful personable staff. They were especially thorough about being aware of allergies. Gourmet delights without any concerns of medical disasters. We were impressed beyond our expectations. We plan on doing the same trip in a couple of years, just want to relive it all!
