Enjoy luxury amenities aboard River Empress, whether you’re dining in the ship’s sleek restaurant—reminiscent of a New York jazz and supper club—or relaxing over a cup of tea on the Sun Deck as you gaze out at the 360-degree view of the Rhine River Valley.
Choose from a variety of excursions in each port. Cover some ground on bike or foot during “Let’s Go” adventures. “Do as the Locals Do” walking tours reveal the city’s secrets, as you visit the restaurants and neighborhoods where locals frequent.
