We have never taken a river cruise and have a couple questions:

How is July for the 9 day Danube River Cruise on the Monarch Queen? Is high or low water a problem during this month?

I found a video of the Monarch Empress, is there a similar video of the Monarch Queen? link?

I see that the Monarch Queen was built in 2006 and the Empress is only a year old. Our trip is booked on the Queen, has it been kept up? Is there anything that we would miss being on the Queen or are they similar.

Do you recommend any of the add-on exursions or any other tips of what to see that may be away from the guided tours?

I believe that there are 1 or 2 dinners with the captain... how formal is formal? Is the dress requirement only a suggestion, I'd rather not have to pack just for these dinners?

Is the WiFi/internet OK on board and available while traveling or just docked near the cities?

Thanks in advance for any tips that you may have, we are looking forward to our trip in July 2017

I can only address the question of water level. This is not predictable very far in advance. Very high water levels one year can be followed by record low levels the same time the following year. That was the case in 2013 and 2014.
