Grand Christmas truly Grand,

We just returned from the Grand Christmas New Years Cruise 2012/2013. Uniworld is to be complimented for taking lemons and making lemonade. Due to no fault of Uniworld, the extra rain and snow in the previous weeks prior to our cruise caused the Danube to flood and the Rivership Duchess was unable to travel further down the river from Regensberg.

It was decided that we would not be able to continue, so uniworld ... Read More...

When we joined the impressive River Duchess at Nuremburg on 22nd December 2012 all were in festive mood and the reception given by staff as you enter the ship enhances the mood of all travel weary passengers.

On the River Countess on December 22, 2009, was a trip of a life time. From the moment we boarded in Nuremberg until we debarked in Budapest it met and exceeded our expectations. While we weren't blessed with snow, it was a fairytale Christmas experience, Christmas eve in Regensburg cathedral, with the choir singing silent night at midnight, brought tears to everyone, a cocktail hour with the Princess brought history to reality, the grand New Years eve gala could not have been recreated by a Hollywood set. It makes it sound like we didn't enjoy the ship and ... Read More...

Personable and very professional,

1/4/2009
I wanted to let you know what a fabulous job the crew on the River Countess did during our trip. We were on the Christmas Market trip from Vienna to Nuremberg on Dec.1st.

Christine Bremberger was the Cruise Manager and she was fabulous. She handled all the passengers professionally and knew the area like the back of her hand. She was extremely knowledgeable. The crew was personable and very professional. We will travel with Uniworld again.
