Castles along the Rhine,

5/3/2012
We thoroughly enjoyed the Cruise. The staff was very friendly and they covered a lot of locations. The food was simply marvelous!


Cruise: Castles along the Rhine Ship: S.S. Antoinette

S.S. Antoinette,

10/27/2011
I was on the 3rd of the River Antoinette's cruises on Castles on the Rhine when I had a bad fall in Strasburg. The staff were magnificent, I was looked after from the time I fell, through the ambulance trip and through the hospital (I didn't speak German). Each day thereafter until I left hospital (5 days later) they rang the hospital to ask how I was going and whether they could help. My husband left my jewellery behind when he hurriedly packed up my things (with the help of a kind steward) and when I realised ... Read More...

Take the River Route,

S.S. Antoinette July 2011- Basel to Amsterdam

My wife and I had long been tempted to try river cruising. We kept it as a backup idea mainly because we thought it was more expensive than ocean cruising for a trip of the same duration. This year we were tempted no more and took the plunge. An airfare discount was part of the incentive and did the trick to get me to book “Castles on the Rhine” aboard Uniworld’s S.S. Antoinette.

Our expectations were exceeded for service, food, itinerary and atmosphere. Our only regret is our cabin was ... Read More...
Cruise: Castles along the Rhine Ship: S.S. Antoinette

I’ve sailed on big ships and one other river cruise which did spoil me, but this trip takes the CAKE,

5/12/2011

First, and far most, I want to THANK my Reservation lady, Annette Pesa for arranging a cake for my daughter’s birthday aboard ship the second night (happened to be the Captain’s Dinner at his Table).  The best present my daughter has ever had, so she said.  Outstanding, Annette, the presentation was great, cake was light and hit the spot.  Thank you, again, for all your hard work and time.  It was appreciated.

Our room was continuously clean and ready to accept us when we arrived.  I have to admit that on one occasion, bad me, I flooded the bathroom.  It was reported immediately and before we could get seated on the couch there was a knock on the door and before he could get to the bathroom door another knock on the door—it was a maintenance man with a water-vac to clean up.  Next thing we had four (4) men working to clean up my mess.  It seems the door got out of adjustment and that caused the mess.  It was fixed immediately.  I really couldn’t figure out why when prior nights I had no problem at all then all of a sudden it floods.  They had it cleaned up in no time.

 

 

Sorry, Annette, I just can’t think of all the great things to say about the SS Antoinette or her staff.  Just wish everyone I know could make their next trip on that boat, because they would never stop talking about it or the people.  I know they would enjoy it because you just can’t help it.  I’m already trying to see when my daughter finishes school, so I can book our next trip on one of your other boats.  I can honestly say, “ UNIWORLD” has me not wanting to go if your boats do not go to that particular place.

 

 

I did mention I had been on another river cruise prior to this and it was on the River Queen.  That ship did spoil me to doing another river cruise which to me is really the only way to travel.  You feel like a family traveling together not a bunch of strangers.  That trip was really good and special things did happen, people were fantastic and it was relaxing the way it should be.  Since I’ve been on that ship it has been completely updated and the pictures look great.  In fact, my daughter and I have been thinking about doing another one on her soon.

 

 

Thank you,

Ann Dowdy

Cruise: Castles along the Rhine Ship: S.S. Antoinette

The cruise was one of the best vacations we have ever taken,

5/5/2011

We just returned from the most marvelous vacation on the Rhine river! Our week on the SS Antoinette exceeded our expectations. The ship is fantastic and the entire crew was professional, friendly and very well trained. The food was varied and delicious. The excursions were well planned and our guides very informative. We were blessed with outstanding weather which just added to the overall experience.

 

Lastly, thanks for the stateroom upgrade that you provided to both ourselves and the Palmquist party. The staterooms were beautiful. Your team is to ...

 

Best regards,

Castles Along the Rhine on the SS Antoinette,

4/6/2011
If you want to be treated like a Queen everyday of your trip, take the Castles Along the Rhine on the SS Antoinette. Believe me I can't find the words to describe just how wonderful everything was on this boat. Staff, food, and rooms were to just die for because it was really GREAT! This was the boats maiden voyage, but you really didn't realize it. Everybody was at your beckon call, so eager to please you in any way possible.
Our trip was from March 27,2011 till April 3, 2011---so sad to leave. -Ann Dowdy & Tammy Baker ... Read More...

Ms.,

5/24/2010
I cruised the "Castles on the Rhine" cruise in April and had such a fabulous time. Your ship and the cruise was so much more than I expected. Our group of 26 all came away with nothing but positive comments. The personnel assigned to our ship (River Ambassador from Basel on 24/04/10) were so professional and personable. Thank you for providing such a great experience. I will look forward to another vacation with Uniworld.

The Ultimate Ladies Getaway,

11/12/2009
It has been just over a month since we returned from Castles Along the Rhine on the River Ambassador. For many years, my sister-in-law, my niece and I have taken time each October for "ladies weekend out." This year, we decided to take it to the next level with a 7 day Rhine River Cruise. Oh, the pampering and special attention from the crew...oh, the delightfully and delicious cuisine...oh, the castles and cathedrals and canals...so much more than we ever anticipated. Everything was taken care of by Uniworld - no travel worries or concerns. All ... Read More...

Wonderful Cruising Experience,

10/23/2009
This was my first trip to Europe. I accompanied my mother after her traveling companion canceled and I am glad to have had the experience. The cultural experience of seeing Amsterdam, the famous Cologne Cathedral, and the only castle on the Rhine to have never been successfully taken over was unbelievable. We also enjoyed the wine tastings in the Alsatian Region of France. Christine Bremberger, our tour director, and the staff could not have been better. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. Brian Siemers
