River Empress

The River Empress adds a touch of luxury to European river cruising. Inside and out, the ship's design is sleek and modern. The lobby's glass elevator provides access to four passenger decks. Places to unwind after shore excursions include three lounges, one with a library and gaming tables. There's also a boutique and beauty salon as well as a sauna and whirlpool. On the top deck is an elegant, open-seating restaurant with panoramic windows. This ship features four suites with floor-to-ceiling windows and a sitting area with a sleeper sofa. With the exception of window size, all other cabins offer identical features: a sitting area in front of two large windows, a desk, closet, a flat-screen TV and private bathroom with thick cotton towels, aromatherapy bath amenities and plush terry cloth robes.
