Uniworld Cruise Reviews
Enjoyed the cruise and your entire staff,11/3/2008
As much as I enjoyed this trip, I did however, start having some respiratory problems while in Lyon which worsened when I arrived in Paris. On Monday, October 20, I needed to go the hospital. Your local host, Betsy Dryer, was ... absolutely outstanding in the help the she provided. She took us to the American Hospital and stayed with us for several hours while I was being evaluated. Fortunately, after 5 hours in the emergency room, the problem was identified and resolved over the next few days with medication. Betsy in an excellent representative for Uniworld in Paris, and we can't say enough to truly indicate our appreciation for the help she provided. She is genuinely committed to assisting the Uniworld guests and you should be proud and honored to have such an employee.

Best of our many vacations,9/29/2008
Mr Chen Liang was extraordinary. He is to be commended for his efforts to exceed our expectations. This was our first trip with Uniworld but because of Mr Chen it will certainly not be our last. He and his staff hit a home run on this vacation.

The crew and staff were all extremely professional and helpful in all aspects. Captain Schlenther was personable and available to the passengers when free. Hildegard Peiker, cruise manager, went out of her way to help passengers. As an example, when we thought of taking the local bus in Trier to see some of the Roman ruins that were not ... included in our excursion, Hildegard went out of her way to get us bus numbers so we would not get lost.
Sightseeing was very comprehensive. The guides were excellent in all the cities we visited. In Koblenz we did a side-trip on our own which might be worth-while incorporating in the regular sightseeing if at all possible. We went up to Festung Ehrenbreitstein which is a fortress built in the 19th century. At the fortress there was a short slide show presented in various languages including English on the history of the fort. From the fort there were magnificent views of the Rhine and Koblenz. If this is not possible then maybe information can be given to the passengers as to how to get there; we took a local bus up to the fortress, walked down from the fort and then took the ferry across the river back to the city center (or one can take the ferry both ways and a chair lift up and down or the bus down rather than walk).
The food was very good and the presentation was lovely especially at dinner. It was nice that breakfast was buffet, yet, one could always ask for different eggs or hot cerel. Lunches were good, but we felt that there were too many pork dishes served (even the meat sauce was made with pork). For those who do not eat pork, it would be nice to have basic alternatives such as tuna fish or egg salad or even turkey included on the cold-cut platter at lunch. Having the alternatives of chicken or steak at dinner was very good.

EVERYTHING exceeded my expectations,9/13/2008

As you know, we were robbed at the Hotel Tiara on June 27, 2008, and Pilar gave us super support and help - she took us to the US Embassy to get new passports, loaned us 400 Euros of her own money, took us to the Western Union office in Lisbon in her own car to pick up money that our son wired to us, made many phone calls for us, had our new credit cards delivered to Pinah, and just gave ... us wonderful support. We really appreciate her help and the support of your company.
By the way, we enjoyed the Douro River Cruise and all of the people that made it so nice!
We arrived back in the US after spending an additional two weeks in Spain and although our vacation started out on a "bad note", we enjoyed our time in Europe.

Can't wait to take another river cruise,8/1/2008
Captain Menno de Sera was wonderful and made judgments that enhanced our trip. Because the river was rising near Regensburg he decided to get ahead of schedule so we could make it under the Deggendorf bridge. This was a great judgment call since ... several ships after us did not make it through that day. I've been on many many cruises and have never had a Captain that was so visible, warm and friendly.
Doris van Jeveren, the cruise director was wonderful and gave such informative history lessons on the ports we were going to. She was so personable, friendly and always available. Jan Wlodarcyzk, the hotel manager, was also so friendly and made everything on the ship run smoothly. A special thank you to Tomas Lysak, the restaurant manager, with his special help with my group for dining. I could mention everyone of the staff because they were all wonderful and made for a glorious cruise. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Everyone in the group had such a great time and we can't wait to take another river cruise with Uniworld.
