Spectacular Seine,

9/14/2013
This summer, my husband and I took our first European River Cruise aboard the River Baroness. We traveled with two of our dear friends and 85 other passengers on Uniworld's Paris and Normandy cruise. From the moment we stepped through customs at CDG, we were pampered by Uniworld's wonderful staff. Our trip began with 2 nights in Paris at the Marriott Ambassador. Our guide, Pierre, provided guidance and information about Paris and available tours. He was very helpful throughout our stay. We opted to take the bus tour which gave us an orientation to the city. ... Read More...

Uniworld’s Imperial Waterways of Russia,

9/10/2013
A few years after my wife and I had a very positive experience on a Uniworld River Cruise – we did Amsterdam to Budapest on the Rhine and the Danube on the River Princess in 2008 – we decided to try it again, this time on Russia’s Imperial Waterways linking Moscow to St. Petersburg. Our cruise began in Moscow on August 21, 2013 and lasted 11 days (not counting the days of arrival and departure). The first and the last three days were spent visiting Moscow and St. Petersburg respectively. During the five days in between, we ... Read More...

"Magnifique",

9/10/2013
We recently returned from our maiden voyage on a river boat cruise in August 2013. This trip will bring us a lifetime of wonderful memories. The river boat cruise is the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the Seine River. The staff on the River Baroness were so welcoming. The cruise manager, Alexandra, was very competent and ensured that the needs of the guests were met. The dining room experience was delicious--the service was hospitable and every meal was a treat. The cabin was small but very clean. We were very fortunate ... Read More...

Cruise: July 28-Aug 9, 2013

We have just returned from our Russian and cruise and would like to express our thanks to the staff and crew of the River Victoria for a pleasurable experience.
Alexander (hotel manager) Irina (dining room) Ibi and Lena (cruise managers) Kate (bar manager) all did an outstanding job. They were very friendly and always ready to grant any request.
The dining room crew of wait staff and the kitchen staff were extremely hard working. They had to prepare for additional events each day besides the 3 meals that had to be prepared ... Read More...

Wonderful vacation,

8/4/2013
My husband and I took the Moscow to St. Petersburg cruise in early July. We had a wonderful time in Russia. The staff on the River Victoria were excellent. They were very attentive and did a wonderful job at making us feel welcome in their country. The tour buses were clean and modern. The bus drivers were very careful even in rush hour. We participated in almost all the extra tours and were extremely pleased with each and every one of them. The cruise directors were EXCELLENT.

We really enjoyed seeing Russia and ... Read More...

Paris & Heart of Europe,

8/3/2013
River Princess - 4th July 2013 - Paris to Vienna.
The Cruise Manager, Rik Sprengers helped to make this a memorable cruise to Vienna. The Captain was challenged by the Danube Lock Operators who decided to go on strike just days after the problems with the flooding of the rivers in June. However, with forward planning the Captain was able to pass through the canal locks about to be blocked. Uniworld then organised buses to take us back to the locations on the itinerary and generously provided lunch meal money as the passengers could not return to the ship for ... Read More...

Mrs Sandra Ferrari,

7/18/2013

We travelled on the River Queen from Amsterdam to Budapest in May 2012. I was unsure about being on a cruise for two weeks, but my doubts were soon dispelled.

From the moment we stepped on board we were treated like family members.

The staff were amazing, as was the food and service. The ambience was special and all on-shore excursions were well organised and well chosen. There was no pressure to go on excursions or join in on organised events.

I am hooked on cruising and Uniworld. I would not contemplate looking at any other ...

Thank you Uniworld and to all your staff.

Yours Truly,

Venice,

7/17/2013
My wife and I on June 15-23 took our first cruise with Uniworld to Venice and the Po River. I was nervous booking a trip overseas on my own but Uniworld employee "Lois" was very helpful and knew all the details to help me out. The ship and staff were excellant. The food on board was great! The tours were well organized and just plain fun. The weather our particular week was great with full sun everday. Cruising the lagoon at Venice on top of the ship and grilling steaks their too was fantastic. Many good memories, Patty and I ... Read More...

River Duchess: Pampered like a King and Queen,

7/16/2013
Recently, we returned from our first river cruise on the Danube. Our whole trip was a very unique, enjoyable experience. The highlight for us, was the ship itself. After an interesting day of touring, it was a welcome relief to come back to the total comfort and luxury of the ship. Our dining room experience, interacting with other guests and staff, was amazing. Richard, our maître de, was extraordinary! His sense of humour, attentiveness to helping everyone and sensitivity to others were very commendable. He helped wherever possible and set a shining example for his staff. His staff followed his ...

European Serenade June 2013,

7/16/2013
We departed on our cruise approimately 1 and a half weeks after the major flooding, we actually were not informed until 5 days before our departure that the cruise was still a go. This cruise is fantastic, amazing, and any other word you could think of. The ship, the crew, the sights, the sounds, and the experiences are second to none. We were on the River Ambassador, as the River Princess could not make it to Amsterdam in time for our sailing. The Ambassador is beautiful and well worth the exchange, wasn't sure, but being on board was a true ... Read More...

River Duchess,

7/15/2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the River Duchess from Amsterdam to Bucharest. One could not fault any aspect of the experience. Everyone from the deckhands up made sure we were treated like friends not paying guests. Every little detail from the addictive sweets/lollies / candies in the foyer, the refreshing towels and thirst quencher on return, meals, excursions and entertainment were first class. Special mention for our Cruise Director, Ramona - a delightful, personable, always happy and smiling and extremely knowledgeable asset to Uniworld. Will definitely be cruising again with Uniworld.

Perfect despite Flood Conditions,

7/10/2013
June 23-June 30: Highlights of Eastern Europe Cruise. Fortunately, this River Empress sailing was a total success from first moment to the last farewell. Our original vessel, River Ambassador was unavailable due to the Danube flooding and closed locks. The considerate, well-informed, personable staff was attentive and responsive even though their schedules must have been overly-burdened by the flooding consequences of the three weeks. We were never inconvenienced; Hotel Manager Sabine Sprau is a sparkling professional. She lost a night of sleep when she refused to allow the Hungarian border patrol (Schengen)to muster us to face-check our passports. ... Read More...

SS Antoinette “Castles Along the Rhine”,

6/17/2013
In April my husband (both in our 60s) took our first ever river cruise. We chose Uniworld’s SS Antoinette (“Castles Along the Rhine”/Basel to Amsterdam/eight days-seven nights) as a result of a recommendation from AMEX travel folks…and we could not have been more pleased. Everything about the trip was excellent. From the moment we arrived on board, we were given first class-plus service. The staff who were always helpful, efficient, and friendly learned our names and likes/preferences within a day. Our cruise events director coordinated and organized all the excursions perfectly. The food and ... Read More...

Incredible Tour Guide, Amazing Trip!,

6/15/2013
My husband and I just retured from the May 10 - 24 trip to China, Tibet, and the Yangtze, and words cannot describe the experience! Above all, though, we feel this trip would not have been nearly as memorable if not for our fantastic tour guide, Hubert. His knowledge of Chinese history, caring nature, sense of humor, and willingness to constantly go above and beyond what was expected (he would always tell us he was on-call 24/7) made for an unmatched experience.

Before the trip was over, Hubert felt more like a family member than a tour guide. ... Read More...

Floating Boutique Hotel: All Aboard!,

5/22/2013
Perhaps river cruising is somewhat a well-kept secret as we found very few reviews across multiple sites prior to our booking and our hope is that this review will introduce you to a new way of travel and/or influence your decision to experience UniWorld.

We are 40/50ish couple from Sonoma/Napa Valley with a passion for food, wine and sailing and while this was not our first Luxury Link (LL) purchase, it was our first cruise and organized tour of any kind. This was a last minute getaway (within 3 weeks from departure) and LL (where we discovered UniWorld) ... Read More...

None come close to the enjoyment, sense of security and relaxation,

5/22/2013
I became "altitude challenged" in Tibet. Head, ear and abdominal discomforts prevented my first and second Tibet days of sightseeing. Mr. Lee came to my room-had soup and other foods made avail to me. He always reminded us to "call him if anything needed at any time". On the last Tibet day I was still very weak-but Mr.lee reassured me if I wanted to , he would help me to see Tibet Palace( Potala) and if I could not continue he would assist me back to hotel. I did go to the Palace with his physical arm assist ... Read More...

A Delightful Trip,

We recently were on the River Royale for the Burgundy and Provence trip, The ship was very beautiful. All the public areas were tastefully decorated and our stateroom was exquisite with beautiful fabrics etc.The bathroom was the best small ship bathroom ever--luxuriously appointed with a great shower. The food on board was excellent--plenty of choice and served with different very good wines of the region.The service especially in the dining room was wonderful--our servers were so gracious and anticipated our every need. We always made sure to sit in their area. Excursions were terrific-well organized. The highlight was a private ... Read More...

Highlights of China & the Yangtze River Cruise,

5/4/2013
My husband and I have recently travelled from Beiging to Shanghai with Uniworld. Our tour guide "LI" was outstanding. We travelled on the Century Paragon along the Yanghtze, the ship was beautiful . My only criticism is that by the time we had boarded the ship we were tired of eating Chinese - WAY TOO MUCH!  It would have been nice to have a western menu.

Great trip!,

5/4/2013
This was my first cruise and I went by myself. I was somewhat concerned about that as I am a 70 yr. old female traveling alone. I wasn't sure how friendly people would be. The experience was great! People were friendly and welcoming from the start. Because there were only 129 guests it didn't seem crowded and overwhelming.

I can't say enough good things about the Captain and the crew - very friendly and willing to do anything to make your trip fun. Our cruise director worked very hard to arrange great entertainments ... Read More...

2012: Paris & European River Romance,

4/22/2013
We took this cruise from June 24, 2012 to July 3, 2012.

The river portion began at Nuremberg, GE, and ended at Trier, GE. We passed through 17 locks during the cruise, most at night and the crew handled the boat so gently that we seldom knew that we were passing through passing through a lock. The boat was beautiful and immaculate, the accommodations were luxurious and the food was wonderful. We took every possible shore excursion and loved every minute of the trip. The excursion guides were knowledgeable and professional as was ... Read More...

Our First River Cruise - Loved It!,

4/20/2013
My husband and I had been on a few ocean cruises in the past and didn't really love them - so when we decided to try a river cruise, it was with some apprehension. When we arrived at the ship (in snow and wind) our concerns soon vanished. From the minute the crew took our bags and we stepped aboard - we felt totally in the lap of luxury. Everyone - from the front desk to the dining room to the hotel staff - made us very comfortable and took care of our every wish. Our ... Read More...

The "Volcano" Trip,

3/1/2013
In April of 2010, my husband and I took our first river cruise. Our trip began in Amsterdam and ended in Frankfurt. At least that was the plan!

By the time we reached Frankfurt one of Iceland's volcanoes had erupted, air travel in Europe was at a standstill, and those of us who planned to fly home from there were stranded.

The staff on Uniworld worked around the clock to make sure that every person on the ship had a place to go or somewhere to stay. My husband and I, not experienced travelers, ended up ... Read More...

Grand Christmas truly Grand,

1/24/2013
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. Between Uniworld and the fantastic staff onboard we were bused to the next three destinations, while the river decided to either go down or up. It was decided that we would not be able to continue, so uniworld ... Read More...

Dr,

1/7/2013
Being our first river cruise we were not sure what to expect, but having read enough about Uniworld, we had high hopes. This was to be a "White Christmas" occasion.

My mother taught me that "you have only one chance at a first impression". Uniworld understands this well. Our transfer at the airport was ready and on time. To keep the review short, I will deal succinctly with a few issues.

I like ocean cruising due to the distances that can be covered, but I liked the smaller, more intimate setting of ... Read More...

Uniworld say “You shall go to the ball”….and we did!!,

1/5/2013

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. You are immediately immersed in the high but unobtrusive Uniworld standards of facilities and service – a standard that was maintained throughout the whole cruise.

As this was a period of celebration we had a suite, this was spacious, fittings impressive, beds plush and very comfortable. There was ample storage space for the many clothes we had brought having regard to the festive ... Read More...

"just another day in paradise",

1/1/2013
There is an old saying, "just another day in paradise", well we have experienced that in our recent Christmas Markets cruise on the River Duchess from Nuremberg to Vienna. As well as the paradise, we also enjoyed a 'winter wonderland'. Coming from 40o in Melbourne to snow was a delight and there was nothing better than standing at the front of the ship whilst it was snowing. The 'paradise' of course just does not happen, it was created by all the fabulous team on the ship. Each and everyone of the Uniworld team is very 'special'. ... Read More...

Pampered passengers,

Our trip on the River Beatrice on the Danube Christmas Markets Cruise was unforgettable. The boat was decorated for Christmas, making it warm and inviting. The staff was eager to make our trip memorable and comfortable. Our tours and guides were excellent. When a weather or lock problem changed our itinerary, the staff was quick to substitute on-board activities for us. Our room was small but comfortable--plenty of closet space, and decent sized bathroom. The people we met on board were so nice. Some have become my friends on Facebook. I would ... Read More...

This was our first river cruise 8 days Vienna to Nuremberg and it was truly a remarkable way to travel. Uniworld has certainly perfected the art of river cruising by choosing unique and entertaining destinations, first class service and a beautiful vessel. We sailed on the River Countess and were amazed the entire ship was well-maintained and always clean. The entire staff without exception was outstanding and made each guest feel special. Our cruise manager, Christine, had an amazing store of knowledge about every port and all the small towns, locks and places of interest we sailed past. Her enthusiasm, ... Read More...
