Legendary Rhine & Moselle
We sailed aboard the River Queen from Basel to Amsterdam via Trier along the Rhine and Mosel Rivers. Our late July early August 2014 voyage was outstanding. From the smooth embarkation process to the fine food throughout the two weeks to the excellent daily service to the informative, well-conducted tours to the final seamless disembarkation, we speak most highly of the Uniworld world. We're already planning our next Uniworld river cruise.
Legendary Rhine & Moselle,12/31/2014
Kevin & I recently returned from our 5th Uniworld cruise, our 3rd on the majestic River Queen. From the moment of making our booking, the staff in Sydney were obliging and happy to assist. Upon reaching the dock in Amsterdam, we knew it was going to be another wonderful holiday. We were back with the Uniworld family.
To greet us at the gangway was a seaman/deckhand from a previous cruise on the River Ambassador. The next familiar face was Nikolay the restaurant Manager, also from River Ambassador. We were welcomed on-board like long lost cousins, open arms and warm smiles. We ... could not have wished for more.
Needless to say, the entire crews' devotion to duty and their caring for the needs of all of the passengers, still remains at 5 stars exactly as it was on our first cruise in 2009.Our special thanks and a big bouquet to each and every member of the crew without exception, for making this another unforgettable experience, for which Uniworld can be justly proud.

A Wonderful Memory,9/6/2011
The friendships we made on this cruise will be remembered all our lives. The fun and companionship we shared made the trip even more special.
You are treated like a guest in someones home and the casual elegance is unmatched. A great trip and we will certainly think of Uniworld first on our next holiday. Read More...
THe Best Cruise-Ever,6/29/2010
The crew and staff were all extremely professional and helpful in all aspects. Captain Schlenther was personable and available to the passengers when free. Hildegard Peiker, cruise manager, went out of her way to help passengers. As an example, when we thought of taking the local bus in Trier to see some of the Roman ruins that were not ... included in our excursion, Hildegard went out of her way to get us bus numbers so we would not get lost.
Sightseeing was very comprehensive. The guides were excellent in all the cities we visited. In Koblenz we did a side-trip on our own which might be worth-while incorporating in the regular sightseeing if at all possible. We went up to Festung Ehrenbreitstein which is a fortress built in the 19th century. At the fortress there was a short slide show presented in various languages including English on the history of the fort. From the fort there were magnificent views of the Rhine and Koblenz. If this is not possible then maybe information can be given to the passengers as to how to get there; we took a local bus up to the fortress, walked down from the fort and then took the ferry across the river back to the city center (or one can take the ferry both ways and a chair lift up and down or the bus down rather than walk).
The food was very good and the presentation was lovely especially at dinner. It was nice that breakfast was buffet, yet, one could always ask for different eggs or hot cerel. Lunches were good, but we felt that there were too many pork dishes served (even the meat sauce was made with pork). For those who do not eat pork, it would be nice to have basic alternatives such as tuna fish or egg salad or even turkey included on the cold-cut platter at lunch. Having the alternatives of chicken or steak at dinner was very good.
