Uniworld Cruise Reviews
Great China Experience,5/19/2014
My name is Larry Rollen from St.Louis Missouri. My wife and I were recently in China for a fourteen day tour and River Cruse sponsored by Uniworld. The assigned host for us was Mr. Lee and I have nothing but praise for him and his planning and preperation to make our trip as enjoyable as could be. Mr. Lee was professional, courteous, and knowledgable about the Chinese culture and history. Mr. Lee made this trip one to definately remember we were so lucky to have his services. He assisted us when needed and each step of our journey was planned ... with persicion from beginning to end. I wanted to thank you to assigning him to our group. My wife and I thank you and Mr. Lee for making our China experience a great one. Mr. Lee is the best.
China Tibet & Yangtze,5/18/2014
Just completed the China experience with friends and amazing new friends.
The trip started the end of April 2014 and the weather was optimal for touring. The tour was well organized and seamless through the expertise of our guide, Mr. Edward Tong. Edward, the best guide I have ever experienced, was knowledgeable, articulate and ever conscious of his groups' needs.
The cruise was a blast with adequate accommodations. The hotels we stayed in were very good and the employees were very helpful. If this trip is on your bucket list then count on Uniworld to provide the logistical support to ... make it happen!Read More...
One word: OUTSTANDING!,5/12/2014
As you know, we've sailed Avalon twice and Viking once in the past. Your presentation last year at our Travel, Ports, & Voyages meeting piqued our interest. And, we were clearly not disappointed! From the moment we boarded, the entire staff made us feel welcome and catered to us, as well as my friends/clients, like no other river cruise.
The Uniworld difference:
Staff- by the second day, most already knew our names. My wife told our waiter she can't have peppers. Never a problem throughout the cruise. Water, drink glasses promptly refilled both in lounge and dining room. Drinks on the ... deck, always filled, and if not, server told us to push the request button (never had to!).
Speaking of the top deck: Plush blankets for the ladies on a chilly afternoon cruise. Nice touch!
Food: Excellent throughout breakfast, lunch and dinner! Great choices. Drinks: Excellent choices, including top shelf, all-inclusive. (Bar opens at 9:00am! Too early for me!) Wines in the dining room changed daily to reflect the region visited. Excellent. One night my wife asked if a Riesling was still available from previous evening-not a problem!
Coffee/Tea: YES- REAL coffee! (not coffee-flavored product like the other cruise lines), Nothing like starting the day with a fresh-ground coffee or cappuccino, be it at the self service station or breakfast buffet. Also, a great selection of teas, fresh brewed leaves, not in a bag.
Ship/Stateroom: Up to date, well appointed, and spotless! Room always perfectly clean and organized.
Included Tours: Excellent presentation. Modern fleet of buses. Guides were all top-shelf.
Bicycles: Had a great group ride!
Cruise Manager: Christine Bremberger- very informative, and most important; always available for questions and comments.
Hotel Manager: Mihaela Arhilei- most pleasant, always greeted us by name. While all of the wait staff were excellent, Marija and Christian (bar staff) clearly stood out.
We're contemplating Russia either this year or next. As you may expect, on Uniworld, of course!
Culturally rich immersion,5/11/2014
Our tour manager Edward Xuming was an outstanding leader who made this trip such a positive experience for us, as well as the rest of our group. Edward was extremely knowledgeable, caring and organized which enabled all of us to relax and enjoy our vacation.

Great First Experience,5/1/2014
I just returned from my first river cruise - aboard the Queen Isabel sailing the Duoro River and would like to congratulate the company and staff for an outstanding job. Everything was beyond what I had expected, the cruise director, Kirsten was marvelous. The lock issue was handled very professionally. I will book another cruise shortly. Well done - top to bottom and thank you.
I have just returned to Australia after finishing a trip Highlights of China and the Yangzte. This trip was exceptional. There service provided by our Tour Guide Li Zimeng was the best I have ever had. Everything about the trip was exceptional, Hotels, transport the Century Paragon, excursions, and the service that was provided was faultless. I have travelled a lot, and this was without doubt the best. This was my second experience with UniWorld, and I am so impressed. thank you for providing such high standards, and thank you for providing exceptional tour managers.

Castles along the Rhine,4/25/2014
If you want to experience perfection then take a cruise with Uniworld. This was my first, but definitely not my last, river cruise. From the moment we boarded the ship in Basel to our leaving for the airport 10 days later Uniworld saw to every detail.
Their service was beyond first class, the suite was perfect, the food was beyond delicious. The land excursions are varied and well paced for whatever your activity level. Knowledgable tour guides who really know their stuff and love what they do. Our cruise director Tamas was wonderful , our butlers ... Lazlo and Valentine saw to our every wish.
This is truly a world class company Already planning. My cruise for next year. Thank you Uniworld for a truly memorable vacationRead More...

Mekong River Cruise,12/22/2013
This was the trip of a lifetime and we will never forget it. A marvelous voyage. Entire crew, our local guides, especially Varak in Cambodia, were informed and entertaining. But what made the trip so effortlessly informative and full of pleasure was our tour guide, Chantal! She solved any problems with ease and never once showed a ruffled feather. My age (78) was taken into consideration but never allowed to interfere with my feeling of inclusion and participation. Each person on this cruise had to have felt special and coddled. Thank you, Uniworld. It was amazing.
