How long are European river cruises?

What is included in the price of my European river cruise?
Most Europe river cruises include the price of the cruise, all shipboard meals and entertainment,
usually beer or wine with dinner, daily shore excursions (unlike an ocean cruise); Plus, there will be
plenty of on-shore time for you to either explore the fabulous cities and towns on your own or to
take an included shore excursion.
Is the airfare included on my Europe river cruise?
We are able to offer you both cruise-only packages as well as an all-inclusive price which will include
the airfare and transfers once you arrive.
Is a passport required?
All Americans are required to have a valid passport in order to enter into European countries.
Will I get seasick?
European river cruises slowly glide down smooth, wave-free rivers. It is extremely unlikely that you
will be aware that your ship is moving. We’ve never had a client complain of motion sickness.
What is the on-board currency?
The currency used on board your Europe river cruise ship will be the euro.
Will there be a lot of children on board?
No. Europe river cruises are NOT designed for children. Most of the river cruise lines will not allow
passengers under 8 as there are no ‘kids clubs’ or other facilities for them on the ships. However,
Uniworld offers family cruises on select European river cruises in July and August. Ask us about this.
Is smoking allowed?
Smoking is not permitted on board most of the European river cruise ships. If it is allowed, it will be
on the open deck only. Smoking is not permitted in the cabins on any European river cruise.
Will I have to dress up for dinner?
No. You are not required to bring your tuxedo or an evening gown. The dress code runs from Country-Club
Casual to just casual on the river cruise lines. Although, for the Captains’ Farewell Dinner, men will be
requested to wear a tie.
Are the European river cruise ships wheelchair accessible?
Regretfully, the ships are not accessible for individuals who must use a wheelchair. Although there are a few
river boats that have elevators the ships are not considered to be accessible nor are there accessible cabins.
What about any special dietary considerations?
For the most part, special dietary needs such as low-salt, diabetic, vegetarian, low-cholesterol can be accommodated with prior notice.
