Uniworld Cruise Reviews
A wonderful experience we had...,7/10/2009
From the moment we arrived at Munich airport, we were greeted by a smiling, friendly Uniworld representative who was willing to wait while we reported our lost suitcase to Air France.
We boarded your beautiful gem - the River Beatrice in Passau. It was more than we expected. The public areas were all tastefully done-lovely fabrics and the artwork phenomenal. Our cabin was impressive – as nice as any ocean liner if not nicer. The ship was kept immaculate at all ... times.
Your staff was very friendly and accommodating. Liliana Lazar, Captain Tom Buining, and Hildegarde Peiker were always knowledgeable, available and helpful.
My favorite was Alina Marian, the Concierge, who went above and beyond to be of assistance in all instances. One example, she single handedly followed up with Air France to search for my piece of lost luggage. She did not give up until it was delivered to the ship three days after arriving in Munich. Without her I might never have received my suitcase. I really appreciated her help.

No negative comments at all!,7/2/2009
... We had one more dinner together, the night we were leaving Budapest. This was one of the nights they offered Sun Deck dining .. and what could have been nicer than sailing away in a beautiful sunset … with your friends !! One of the other 2 tables up there was a group ... of 4 people from Boston... so, as a finale, one of those fellows suddenly broke out into “O CANADA” .. and of course we all joined in. He had a magnificent voice and, believe it or not, even knew all the “new” lines …….. said it was because he goes to all the hockey games !!! Both the Hotel Manager and the Restaurant Manager came rushing up the stairs to see what was going on and to join in. What fun.
Thank you also for all your help in planning / “implementing” the trip. It was a pleasure working with you. Ulrike, in your Group Department, was also a great help throughout, and did a wonderful job of coordination…. Always friendly, always helpful, and always patient.
In looking over the 2010 list, I think I would like to try the 17-day “Paris and the Heart of Europe” .. from Vienna to Paris, on the Princess…. August 15, 2010.
Look forward to talking to you …….

Castles Along The Rhine Cruise - Excellent Vacation,6/13/2009
A five star hit,6/4/2009
I must say the I was extremely pleased and satisfied with the experience. The cruise more than exceeded my expectations and my wife was absolutely enthralled by the entire experience. From the moment we landed in Paris to the departure from Marseille, the smile never left my face. The staff of both boats did their very best to make sure our stay was comfortable and friendly. I think you should continue the efforts you've made to keep the staff relaxed and friendly. On the cruise to Normandy our breakfasts and lunch were enhanced by the dining room "relaxed professionalism" of Miroslov who placed a turkey breast on my plate after I said I was hungry to which he responded "Not enough?"
On the "Epicurean" Cruise we were treated and pampered by waiters and waitresses like Zoltan, Anna, Daniella, and Luigi who who did a fantastic job day after day of providing impeccable service and enjoyable company. Zoltan and I (being the history teacher) quizzed each other daily on important historical events.
I'm sure I could go on and on ad nauseum but I wanted you to know that you and your staff provided a perfect anniversary to us and it was a five star hit. I'm sure you can't please everone but you sure did to us and our friends, the Sterns, the McGorrys, and Karen Deegan. We look forward to another cruise soon – we're now officially spoiled. Thank you so much and please convey our gratitude to the entire staff for a job well done.

There were so many highlights on the trip that I hardly know where to begin, and all the extra touches too, like the clocks and the pillow gifts on the last evening, and having dinner with the Captain! The ship is really lovely and it was terrific to see all the various ... cabin categories. It was also great to see River Countess - I feel I have a more complete picture of Uniworld since all your ships aren't as new as River Beatrice.
I don't think there is a single thing that I could criticize about the ship, the crew or the itinerary, and of course the food was amazing. Without exception, everyone was great and with people like Captain Tom, Siggy, Gyongi, Alina and the other front desk people, we really were in good hands.
Anyway, thank you so much again...

Cruise itself was a holiday of a lifetime,5/27/2009
The cruise itself was a holiday of a lifetime and was made more special by the efforts of a fantastic crew and cruise manager Markus Schindelegger. He was outstanding in knowledge of the area and went out of his way to ensure all guests had a pleasurable and informative cruise. As you can appreciate, to meet the requirements of 138 guests is a huge task, but was achieved with aplomb by an attentive ... Captain and crew.
The service on board was first class, very efficient and friendly. The range of the menu was five star.
Comments of other guests on the cruise who have traveled extensively, were that this cruise surpassed anything they have been on.
We would be pleased if you could pass on these comments to Captain and crew.
