Excellent Trip,

9/1/2014
Four of us took the S.S. Catherine in May from Avignon to Lyon. The trip was excellent in every way. Miroslav, our waiter, gave exceptional service. Demeter, our head waiter, oversaw our needs, including my need for a low-sodium diet, which he addressed at every meal. The IT professional, Martin, was unfailingly helpful with a number of IT questions. The food was exceptional, the local tours were excellent, the accommodations were superb. We will be coming back for future tours.

Burgundy & Provence,

Just back from the April 27th sailing. The service, food, and accommodations were exquisite. Everything was extraordinary and it will be hard for any other cruise to compare. I would like to give compliments to all of the staff for their fantastic service; they made each and everyone feel special--not an easy feat! Thank you for a fabulous time.

Had a Wonderful Cruise,

5/22/2014

Hi Nicole, 

We are back from a delightful cruise. We loved the SS Catherine. Our cabin was fine even where it was situated and the decor of the ship delightful.We had a wonderful trip and experience of France which is what we wanted. Our Cruise Director, Adrian, was amazingly knowledgeable and made our cruise special. Thanks for your assistance when we needed it.

We will consider using Uniworld in the future whilst we can still travel.

Kind regards
Yvonne Duthie

A Delightful Trip,

5/17/2013
We recently were on the River Royale for the Burgundy and Provence trip, The ship was very beautiful. All the public areas were tastefully decorated and our stateroom was exquisite with beautiful fabrics etc.The bathroom was the best small ship bathroom ever--luxuriously appointed with a great shower. The food on board was excellent--plenty of choice and served with different very good wines of the region.The service especially in the dining room was wonderful--our servers were so gracious and anticipated our every need. We always made sure to sit in their area. Excursions were terrific-well organized. The highlight was a private ... Read More...

Perfect cruise for our anniversary,

8/28/2012
My husband & I chose a Uniworld cruise to Burgundy & Provence (12-19 Aug) for our 10th wedding anniversary - we couldn't have made a better choice! We have never been on any cruise before and this first experience surpassed our expectations. River Royale is beautiful, the cruise was smooth & relaxing, the food and wine served onboard was good, and we enjoyed the itinerary, in particular, Lyon, Beaune, Avignon, Les Baux and the truffle farm. Favorite experiences include sitting on the ship deck after dinner while the ship was sailing from Lyon to Tournon, with the wind in our ... Read More...

Burgundy and Provence - Rhone River,

7/31/2012
This was my first time on a river cruise and after this wonderful experience, I don't think I can go back to any ocean cruising. The staff and service was friendly, intimate and excellent. They started to know us by sight after the first day. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I love the more intimate experience provided by the max. 25 group of local tours, the audio boxes which allowed you to listen to the tour guide while wandering off to take pictures, and the food which featured local specialities. I found the food on board to be better than ... Read More...

Liz P,

I can’t tell you how wonderful the River Royale Burgundy and Provence cruise was. I don’t know how Uniworld did it but it was even better than last year! The ship was very familiar as the same fabrics and colors were used. Just small things like additional American outlets in the cabins and reworking and separating the computer and coffee areas were big enhancements. The two large round tables with chairs that were in the computer area are GONE. So much less cluttered and easier to maneuver. The counter with computers is at same ... Read More...

Uniworld & River Royale Really Get It!,

7/4/2012

This cruise was our first river cruise, and we rate it a "5+ star" in all major categories. Even better than most of the "ocean" cruises we have taken. The staff were extremely friendly, courteous and always there to help. Our cruise director Gabrielle was totally awesome and ought to be on stage (in fact I heard at the end of our cruise that this is exactly what she will be doing)! 

We were certainly pleased with the luxury and comfort of our cabin, as well as the lounge and dining room. Our room steward, Csaba, was especially wonderful and took ...

We had been to France in the past, but this was our first time to explore the Burgundy & Provence regions. Travelling via the River Royale is certainly the way to go, and we especially enjoyed our four days in Aix-en-Provence on our own prior to boarding in Arles. Our biggest & warmest "thank you" and a bigger Merci, a bientot! to the entire crew!

A terrific cruise!,

5/14/2012
I traveled solo on the River Royale through Provence and Burgundy from April 29-May 6, 2012 and couldn't have enjoyed myself more. I am sold on Uniworld and river cruising. I kept a blog during the trip; if you are interested in reading about the shore excursions, meals, and my impressions, go to http://www.riverroyale.weebly.com. I also wrote a five-star critique on cruisecritic.com but it's a bit repetitive with the blog. http://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=102349 This was truly a trip to remember.

Totally Outstanding!,

I can only give the highest of accolades about our river cruise through Burgundy and Provence trip this past month! This was our first cruise of this type and with Uniworld to celebrate a milestone anniversary and all our expectations were far exceeded! The transfers, the crew, the decor, the epicurean meals, the tours, the tour guides - everything - was first class all the way and has given us forever memories. Eric, A.J., Jeanette (our tour guide)and especially servers like Tibor, Tobor made our trip so enjoyable and fun. Thank you Uniworld and we'll see you next year - ... Read More...

The River Royale provided a great introduction to river cruising,

5/24/2010
We selected this Uniworld cruise mostly because of the French itinerary. It was our first river cruise and our first trip with Uniworld. We were very impressed with the staff, the accommodations, the itinerary, the local guides, and of course the food and wine. Uniworld had thought of everything and all of the staff and crew worked very hard to make sure that their guests had a memorable experience. Our cruise manager Alexandra was wonderful. She seemed to be everywhere tending to all of our questions and needs. The fact that so many of our cruise-mates were repeat customers spoke ... Read More...
