River cruises are the new tour buses, only dramatically better. Do not go into this thinking of an ocean cruise, because they are not even similar, except that you are inside of something moving on water. First thing we had to do was grab a park and fly out of town, because who wants to deal with Dulles Intl. airport parking?( I wish they would honor the TSA precheck thingy, instead of telling you its not manned yet and tough nuggets) We were booked at a nice Dulles airport hotel and flew out to Amsterdam the next day to catch the Uniworld River Empress. The first thing you notice as you're high-tailing it to the ship, is that the cruiseports are run utterly differently in Europe, especially Amsterdam cruiseport parking, which is a neat and smooth flowing affair, compared to the pandemonium of major U.S. cruise ports. Maybe because Europeans are not complete savages.
Anyway, everyone loves this line, which is actually luxurious (like you thought it would be when you plonked down more money than your college car cost). There is a real effort to see to it that the guests are pleased and comfortable, the entire staff is outstanding; friendly and sunny.It has to be a nice company to work for, because no one can keep that kind of thing going unflaggingly if its not genuine. The high quality, wide selection of food is accompanied by complimentary drinks (yes: free. drinks. with your meals, though; you're not getting absolutely plastered on their dime) The decor is uniquely beautiful, unlike the lines which have clearly used the garish decorating talents of Count Dreckula. No cash is required on board, you sign for everything like the Queen, and pay by credit card at the holiday's end. Free Internet, too - nothing, in fact, seemed to be left out of the enjoyable cruise experience, and we can't wait to do it all again.
