Uniworld Cruise Reviews
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.

Every detail was taken care of,5/20/2009
Hubert (HE HUI) was our tour manager for the "Grand China and Yangtze River" tour (April 21-May 10, 2009). We want you to know what a wonderful job he did. Hubert made our time in China so much more interesting and every detail was taken care of to perfection. He is a born teacher, brilliant, and he knows how to make learning fun and fascinating. What a great ambassador for China. We have been on other tours and Hubert is the best. He is tops!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say...,5/18/2009
The captain was a wonderful person, and was so accessible and helpful. Everyone had his attention and concern. You will want to keep him!
I met a writer for USA today on board, and she apparently quoted me on her blog about river cruising. Her article will come out soon. She was very positive, as well. Not only about river cruising in general, but about Uniworld. I certainly did my best to support you.
It was a very special experience, and a very special trip, and everyone was wonderful.
Thank you, thank you, thank you

highly recommend Uniworld,5/6/2009
The crew and staff was so professional and friendly from the first step aboard and made us feel right at home in our new surroundings. The staterooms were so convenient, immaculate, and comfortable. Food was outstanding and the dining room staff always made us feel pampered.
We're looking forward to being able to highly recommend Uniworld using our personal experiences ... which we have found is the best way to market a product.

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...

Down The Danube: A Birthday in Style,4/17/2009
I visited some of the most exquisite restaurants and patisseries in Austria ... and Hungary, toured magnificent Rococo abbeys, and reveled quietly in the verdant mountainsides of Salzburg. It was my first time sailing on a river vessel, and the smaller ship made this trip more personal as the staff quickly learned my name and the distinctive occasion of my journey. River cruises highlight the star attractions of relatively small geographical areas, and eliminate the need for spending entire days at sea. Each alluring port was promptly succeeded by another, without the long hours of wave watching on the vast ocean that are inescapable on larger cruise ships.
...I know that I will see the Danube flowing through the concrete canyons of New York City many years from now, that opulent dinners and photographically still Bavarian countryside will adorn my daily activities at home.
Turning eighteen is a personal experience. Like getting married it is an occasion that one long waits for in eager anticipation. It is a benchmark that seems far off right up until the very day when it comes. Its culmination therefore leaves one in doubt asking, “Is it true, am I really eighteen?” or “Am I really married?” This incredulity is the most important reason why these days must be adorned with ceremony, to stand in the mind as reassurance that they have occurred. Indeed, without the Bavarian hillsides to remind me, I might start to forget the occasion as time and distance encroaches.
This trip has held so much significance for me. On the dinner table I saw not the entrée, but the culmination of years of anticipation. I feel as if the world opened itself up to me on the deck of the River Beatrice. It seemed to promise that dreams can be scheduled in between school or workdays, and that it is better for one’s soul to be a world citizen than a national one.

Pleased is a huge understatement,1/20/2009
In particular, I wanted to praise Inna Medvedkova, the cruise director, Svetlana, her assistant and all the excellent on-board Uniworld ladies, and Sergey, the hotel manager. A particular bouquet is deserved to Prof. Inna Gritsenko whose lectures were spell-binding, authoritative and enriching. And the entertainers, Galina on the piano was astonishingly talented (my wife is a piano teacher so this is high praise from her) and ... Sergey on the accordion completed a dynamic entertaining duo – they’re indefatigable!
I also want to thank you for the special arrangements you made regarding wine & water in the cabins as well as the greatly appreciated wine reception you now provided on board – my group felt very special indeed! And I noticed that you have the Quietvox headsets in Russia – they certainly facilitated communication between guides and their audiences.
This first group having gone so well, I want to tell you that we are going to feature all Uniworld Cruises on our website to individual travelers and to potential groups. We plan to grow our business with you – we have already proposed Egypt/Jordan to one group and will look particularly at the Danube. Having just received your 2009 Europe River Cruises, I acknowledge the continuation of amenities as well as the new ones for company-owned ships in 2009.
