Mary B. Ryan,

I just want to "thank" Uniworld for employing and for sharing your Tour Guide , Hubert, with all of us. Just got back from the China/Tibet trip and it was truly spectacular. The sights and visuals were amazing but without Hubert's attention to detail, his concern for each and every one of us and his vast depth and knowledge of China, our trip would not have been the same. Hubert is the very best tour guide that I have ever encountered. He is professional, without being stiff, knowledgeable, but not pedantic and has the concern of ... Read More...
Cruise: China, Tibet & the Yangtze Ship: Century Legend

Fantastic Staff and Service,

5/14/2015
My wife and I recently returned from our cruise, and of the many great things I could say about the experience, the one that really impressed me was the attitude of the staff. Every single staff person on the ship (our butler Viorel, housekeeping (Bibi), to dining room staff - Uros, Boris, Bogi, and others including the the sailors) had a sparkle in their eye, a spring in their step and smile on their face. It felt to me that each one was happy to be there, doing whatever they were doing. And that was noticeable to me, ... Read More...

Danube River Beatrice,

4/29/2015
To say an experience of a life time one I will never forget. The Enchanting Danube was an experience of a life time, from the ship itself it was beautifully decorated had everything we needed on board, we were totally spoilt. The service provided was First Class, the food was amazing you would certainly not go hungry. The staff each and everyone of them so welcoming, especially Carla, Marcus, Elena, Ivan, Romeo, Richie & Boris they made us laugh and took good care of us as did all the staff but they stood out. You could fault nothing. I ... Read More...

In 2013 we went on the cruise from Amsterdam, Netherlands to Vienna, Austria 14 day cruise was absolutely wonderful. We really like the boutique ships with about 130 guest. The food was fabulous as was the guided tours and scenery. We will be going on our second UniWorld Tour leaving on May 16th. We enjoyed having dinner with people from other countries and America. We have a couple visiting us here in MS in September that we met on that first cruise from Australia. We skip last year as we ... Read More...

Kudos to Uniworld

I agree with all the reviews. An education in history, culture and beauty best describe this tour.

Thank you, liangchen, for your immense knowledge and passion for your country.

Thanks as well to the many local guides who add so much.....particular thanks to the guide in shanghai/suzhou, guilin, and Marco on the ship.

We recently travelled on the River Baroness and the River Royale, we were very impressed with the staff on both ships, meals and excursions.
I would like to mention EMMANUELLE, WHO WAS OUR CRUISE LEADER ON THE BARONESS. ALSO SHADOW ON THE ROYALE..SHE WAS FANTASTIC, VERY FRIENDLY, COMPETENT AND MADE OUR TRIP SO MUCH BETTER.

Cruise: Highlights of Eastern Europe & Istanbul Ship: River Duchess

Absolutely Brilliant!,

4/3/2015
It's difficult to begin to explain how good this cruise was! The ship, the staff, the experience, the tours, the professionalism, the food, the wine...was absolutely amazing! The moment we stepped on the beautiful SS Antoinette, we felt like part of the Uniworld family! We left with a heavy heart and felt like we were leaving close friends!
I must honestly say the food and wine was the best we had ever tasted - absolutely delicious! The waiter staff could not have made you feel anymore welcome, they truly made it their priority to make you feel at home! /> We cant wait to do another cruise with Uniworld and cant recommend this high enough to anyone considering a river cruise. Don't look at the others! Go with Uniworld you wont be dissapointed! Read More...

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.

You've Gained Two Life-Long Customers,

2/8/2015
My husband and I took a risk this year and booked a river cruise. Being in our 30's, we expected to be among the youngest on the ship. As it turns out, I was the youngest by at least 15 years (if you don't consider my husband). Age difference aside, we loved every minute of our cruise and are already considering our next vacation with Uniworld.

We arrived in Vienna for embarkation extremely early—we made it to the ship before 9:00 a.m. Many of the previous week's passengers had not yet left the ship. The cruise manager, Claudia, ... Read More...

Cruise: Grand China & the Yangtze Ship: Century Legend

Wonderful!,

1/13/2015
The 2014 Christmas Markets cruise was wonderful! Captain Smidt, Cruise Manager Bart and Hotel Director Carla, the crew, the guides and guest lecturers made this a truly special experience for us. Onboard meals were invariably excellent, featuring local specialties and wines as well as classic favorites.

Particularly enlightening for me were the lectures on Judaism & the Holocaust and life under Commmunism. My parents survived Nazi and Soviet invasions of their country, but refused to speak of those times except to say it was too painful and too dangerous (even 40 years later). It was difficult to ...

Cruise: Enchanting Christmas & New Year's Cruise Ship: River Beatrice

Great Experience,

1/2/2015
The Christmas and New Year 2014 cruise was just fantastic. Captain Schmidt, cruise Manager Bart and Hotel Director Carla all deserve special praise for the contibutions they made that continually exceeded expectations. No cruise can be perfect in every way for 150 guests of disparate backgrounds and tastes, but this one came remarkably close. I will cruise with Uniworld again. A great team providing a great "product" in the form of guest experiences. Thank you.

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 ...

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.

Ronald & Kevin

Uniworld blows the competition out of the water!,

12/22/2014
We just returned from a trip to Paris aboard the River Baroness, and we wanted to let you know how absolutely delighted we were with the total experience. We had travelled with another company before, and were very pleased by their service, but Uniworld blows the competition out of the water! The staff were outstanding---so courteous, dedicated, and highly efficient---from the captain (who welcomed my husband to the wheelhouse) to our diligent Rado who went out of his way to fulfill our every need, to our housekeeper, Tanika, who kept our room gleaming---all made this trip a life-time experience we ...

Cruise: Parisian Holiday Ship: River Baroness

An Amazing Time,

11/5/2014
We had an amazing time on Uniworld’s Venice and the Gems of Northern Italy Cruise. There were so many highlights of this trip I wouldn’t know where to begin. The ship, food, staff and itinerary were amazing. To go in places where there were not the big crowds was such a plus; even in Venice we never felt crowded. The private tour of St. Marks was especially wonderful and small Italian towns such as Bologna and Chioggia made you feel immersed in the Italian way. Shopping with Uniworld’s Chef Daniel at the Rialto (Bridge) fish market was great fun. This ... Read More...

My husband and I just completed the European Jewels cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest. The trip was wonderful. The food and drinks were awesome. The crew was amazing. The daily tours were fun and informative. We will definitely cruise with Uniworld again.

An Unforgettable Holiday,

9/18/2014
We were a little skeptical doing a river cruise six months after our sea cruise. We were really pleasantly surprised that it was nothing like our sea cruise. Uniworld has really done their homework in getting the ratio between time spent on land and on the river just right. The friendly, professional service was experienced by all staff and made for an unforgettable holiday. We have decided to tour the world as far as possible on Uniworlds river cruises and are off to Vietnam in December. Can't wait.

Excellent experience,

9/2/2014
I recently embarked on the Castles of the Rhine river cruise out of Amsterdam and my family and I had an absolutely wonderful experience. The sites and tours were great, but we thought the highlight was the staff aboard the ship. The people were incredibly helpful, professional, and hard working. In particular, Sorin and Nedko were fantastic. Sorin was our server most days and he could not have been better - not only was he professional and knowledgeable about the menu and food options, but he gave us great tips and information about each stop along the Rhine. He was ... Read More...
Cruise: Castles along the Rhine Ship: S.S. Antoinette

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.

Awesome River Cruise,

8/25/2014
S.S. Antoinette in one word: AWESOME.

Our 1st River cruise - and hopefully not our last. The S.S. Antoinette was outstanding, as was the crew and cruise experience overall. Uniworld in my opinion is a first class cruise operator.

On embarkation day, (we actually embarked from Basel Switzerland) we were greeted at the dock when we arrived at approximately noon. (Our departure was scheduled for midnight) Our luggage was immediately gathered, and directions given to us to begin our day onboard ship. After a short 'self' guided walk around the ship, we were encouraged to have lunch on ... Read More...

A Wonderful Experience,

8/17/2014
The river cruise and pre- and post-trips were fantastic! Thereza in Prague, Tony, Sebastian, Richie on the boat, and Romulus in Budapest were wonderful in ensuring that everything exceeded expectations. The bike tour from Melk to Durnstein was a highlight. The packaged lunch was overwhelming, as were all the meals on the boat! I just wish I could get the pumpkin soup recipe!  Thank you for such a wonderful experience. I am already planning our next trip on the Rhine! I hope Tony, Sebastian, and Richie can make it as well!

Enchanting Danube exceeds high expectations,

7/31/2014
I have heard about Uniworld river cruises for years from my parents. I can truly say this cruise more than met my already high expectations. Everything about the trip was exceptional. The food was absolutely delicious at every meal and trust me I did not miss one! The crew was delightful and extremely attentive and the tour guides in every city, outstanding. My special thanks to Tony our cruise director, Tilen our ship hotel manager, Teresa in Prague and Romulus in Budapest. I miss them already. I cannot say enough about my experience except ...

River Duchess 6-Star Luxery,

7/17/2014
My wife and I just completed our River Duchess Grand European cruise from Amsterdam to Istanbul. The experience was absolutely wonderful with a Captain, Cruise director, and Crew that always attempted to see that our trip was an unforgettable experience. Uniworld outperformed other river cruise boats following this same set of ports. They anticipated river conditions to avoid problems with low water levels and met every request that we made. They even had gentle walker programs for seniors that may have had problems with some of the tour spots. Food and unlimited beverages of all types inclusive with ... Read More...

Grand China and Yantze River Cruise,

7/4/2014
WOW...what an great and awesome experience. Just came back from a 19 day river cruise with Uniworld on Grand China & the Yantze. First, the Tour Manager TAO was FANTASTIC. She made it a seamless journey throughout. All the hotels were 5-star and great (Sofitel, Shangri La Waldorf), the food (both local and on the ship) was very good and different than what we are used to, but great. Some of the excursions included Great Wall, Terra-cotta Warriors, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, smaller cruises, a sampan and a rick shaw...many other excursions as well. We also had ...

Castles along the Rhine 2014,

6/23/2014
We were more than pleased and impressed with the accommodations, staff, and food on the S.S. Antoinette. Lovely itinerary. Passengers we met were all friendly and great to spend a week with in close quarters! Always a smile and helpful attitude from all staff, from sailors to reception to chefs to wait staff. Highly professional, informed, and organized cruise director Rik. Beautiful ship, clean, and modern. We were envied by other river cruisers at each port. Uniworld is so much more elegant than all other ships seen. Definitely booking with Uniworld again.

Enchanting Danube 6 stars,

6/7/2014
From pre-cruise Prague to post-cruise Budapest, Uniworld exceeded my expectations. The personnel were exceptional and I have to put special emphasis on Jana in Prague who deserves an award for her personality and her abilities. Mirella and Romulus on the boat and in Budapest also exceeded all expectations. They went out of their way to make our experience 6 star. The food quality was top notch and far superior to large ship cruising. Service was excellent and personal, again exceeding my expectations. 

We met some wonderful people and will likely book other Uniworld tour! />

Queen for a Week,

6/4/2014
There used to be a television program called Queen for a Day. Five women competed for prizes, and the winner wore a robe and a crown and was pronounced Queen for the day. Well, I beat them. I felt like queen for a week! I smiled from the minute I was greeted at the ship until I left (well, really, I continued smiling long after I left). My cabin was gorgeous. The wallpaper and curtains were beautiful and all the amenities were wonderful…decanters of various spirits, fruit plate, a stocked refrigerator with all kinds of drinks. The orchids, one of ...

Amazing Cruise Director,

5/27/2014
Our first Uniworld cruise was simply amazing. We traveled with Tony Jenkins as our Cruise Director and what a wonderful person and amazing director he was. Our family of four was taken care of by him as if we were his own family! The Tour Guides were so eloquent and informed. It was like being in the best class ever! I didn't want the tours or the lectures to end! We've already signed up for Vietnam & Cambodia tour for 2015! Can't wait.
