We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
All hotels are of European minimum 3-star standard and have a restaurant or bar on site or nearby.
Please note, due to local laws at least one person in each room booked must be 21 years of age or over.

You will also cruise for seven nights on the American Queen riverboat. The largest steamboat ever built, the grand American Queen is a gracious and elegant triumph of American ingenuity. Although filled with today’s modern amenities, her rooms and accommodations display all the opulence of the American Victorian era. With two dining options and entertainment each night worthy of Broadway and air conditioning throughout, you are sure to enjoy the grace and grandeur of this opulent riverboat .
Leger Holidays Tip
Daytime dress is casual on board American Queen; be sure to bring comfortable, non-slip shoes for shore excursions. Evening attire is described as country-club casual – a dress, dressy-skirt and blouse or pant suit for ladies while gentlemen must not wear shorts and can choose to wear a sport coat but there is no obligation.
There are 222 cabins on four decks – Cabin deck, Texas deck, Observation deck and Promenade deck – most with queen or twin beds, flat screen T.V., hairdryer and private bathroom with shower. Inside cabins are on Texas and Observation decks located throughout the length of the vessel. Outside cabins with bay window or French doors which open onto the public deck (open veranda) are on request, subject to availability.
Lounge/Bar: The palatial Grand Saloon is two decks tall and resembles the small town opera houses of the 19th century with details modeled after Ford's Theater. Rousing musical revues and high-energy cabaret from our immensely talented and energetic cast take center stage each evening. After the show, dance and swing to stellar performances of jazz, blues, ragtime, bluegrass, country and rock and roll in the handsome Engine Room Bar, or join in a lively piano sing-a-long in the Main Deck Lounge.
Restaurant: Even more astounding than the choices you will find on our menus are your daily choices of dining venues. The opulent J.M. White Dining Room is the centerpiece, serving breakfasts, lunches and dinners that are befittingly grand. The Front Porch Café offers a wide variety of classic American favourites and can satisfy any craving.
Please Note: Due to demand, we may use other hotels of a similar standard. Your exact hotel details will be provided with your travel documents.
