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,

12/28/2012
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...

Maryt,

12/8/2012
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...

Loved it,

9/22/2012
When I hear the name Uniworld my mind instantly drifts to the fond memories of my journey aboard the River Queen. We have been on the large con huge co cruise ships making us feel like just a passenger, but when we decided to take a river cruise for our honeymoon we didn't feel like just a passenger we felt like part of a family. The ship was well designed and had a great use of space. When we entered to the nice cozy atrium we were greeted by the kind crew who helped take our bags ... Read More...

Just finished the Sept. 2, 2012 cruise. This was a fantastic experience. All crew and staff went above and beyond to insure a perfect experience and of course the tours were great. Cannot say enough to discribe the history and scenery of this cruise!

The extra care and attention to detail was extraordinary,

9/7/2012
The Danube river cruise on the River Beatrice from Budapest to Passau with the Prague extension was fantastic from the time we arrived until we departed. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite. The extra care and attention to detail was extraordinary. Our cruise director Marcus was as hardworking as they come and had us in stitches most of the time with his sense of humour. We were fortunate to have excellent weather for touring. Uniworld offered a hot towel and drink when we came back to the ship and the captain was there welcoming us as ... Read More...

The best vacation my wife and I have ever experienced.,

River Empress, Amsterdam to Budapest in August, 2012.
The best vacation my wife and I have ever experienced. Everything about the cruise was first rate. The food, the service, the attitude of the entire ship's staff was outstanding. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone. From the time we were met at the Amsterdam airport until the time we were bussed to the Budapest airport, everything was outstanding. Tony, our tour director, Carylene, our hotel director, Roberto, our dining room director and most of all our captain - who got us through some pretty ... Read More...

Perfect cruise for our anniversary,

8/28/2012
My husband & I chose a Uniworld cruise to Burgundy & Provence (12-19 Aug) for our 10th wedding anniversary - we couldn't have made a better choice! We have never been on any cruise before and this first experience surpassed our expectations. River Royale is beautiful, the cruise was smooth & relaxing, the food and wine served onboard was good, and we enjoyed the itinerary, in particular, Lyon, Beaune, Avignon, Les Baux and the truffle farm. Favorite experiences include sitting on the ship deck after dinner while the ship was sailing from Lyon to Tournon, with the wind in our ... Read More...

LHP,

This is our second adventure on the waterways traveled by Uniworld. They have something small and brilliant underway. They are creating possibly the very best for way for those of us that crave an authentic and personal way to see the world but are bound by constraints, most notable time. They have identified the things you must see, the impossibly charming villages, the notable historic sites, and everything in between. It's then up to you how you will shape your experience; group tour, on foot, on bike or a combination of all! The tenor of these trips ... Read More...

Uniworld River Queen Cruise - European Jewels (August 6-20, 2012),

8/22/2012
My wife and I would like to acknowledge the excellent service received on our recent European Jewels river cruise with Uniworld. This was our first ever cruise, and I'm not so sure the Uniworld River Queen set the bar to the point we will never be able to recreate the environment again on any future cruise. The entire crew under Captain Ferdy's direction (along with "Siggy" and Lawrence) made us feel like we were part of the family, with Hildagard our Cruise Manager providing an exceptional iterary each and ever day. Martin's resturant and lounge staff were on point (especially ... Read More...

Kudos to Kevin Lin,

8/13/2012
My husband and I recently returned from an 18 day trip to China and must say what an awesome experience it was. Reading about and seeing pictures in history books cannot do justice to the places and things we saw! Our tour manager was Kevin Lin and he was by far the best tour guide we have ever had! He got our group to where we needed to be (no easy task!) with minimal effort. He helped us out of a situation that could have been disastrous and for that we truly appreciate all that he did for us! I ... Read More...

Burgundy and Provence - Rhone River,

7/31/2012
This was my first time on a river cruise and after this wonderful experience, I don't think I can go back to any ocean cruising. The staff and service was friendly, intimate and excellent. They started to know us by sight after the first day. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I love the more intimate experience provided by the max. 25 group of local tours, the audio boxes which allowed you to listen to the tour guide while wandering off to take pictures, and the food which featured local specialities. I found the food on board to be better than ... Read More...

Neville & Cathy,

This review is primarily for antipodeans considering a northern hemisphere cruise.

NB: Our cruise was down river from Vienna - Istanbul (River Duchess).

Given the travel investment involved we felt a 15 day cruise was not enough to justify the time and cost so chose to break the journey north with a two day/night stopover in Dubai. Additionally we included the Prague pre-cruise extension and front loaded this with a further night in the same hotel. This gave us a suitable break (Dubai - Prague only 4.5 hours) and provided two buffer periods should there be any unexpected ... Read More...

The Perfect First Experience,

7/24/2012
On July 15th, 2012 I began the most amazing experience of my life. When I stepped onto the breath taking River Beatrice behind by Grandmother, I realized that at age 17 I was easily one of the youngest passengers aboard. Not only that, but I had never traveled internationally, and I was about to be in three foreign countries over the course of a week. Of course I was excited, but there were quite a few butterflies as well!

As I learned later, there was no reason to be nervous, because I immediately became one of a ... Read More...

I can’t tell you how wonderful the River Royale Burgundy and Provence cruise was. I don’t know how Uniworld did it but it was even better than last year! The ship was very familiar as the same fabrics and colors were used. Just small things like additional American outlets in the cabins and reworking and separating the computer and coffee areas were big enhancements. The two large round tables with chairs that were in the computer area are GONE. So much less cluttered and easier to maneuver. The counter with computers is at same ... Read More...

This is the first trip I have taken abroad by myself.....not to worry. A Uniworld rep was at the airport to meet our scheduled transfer group when we landed. Everything went as planned. We met our lovely Cruise Manager, Mirela, at the hotel "meet and greet" session that evening. She was always cheerful, helpful and within easy accessibility. Our hotel, Crowne Plaza, was nice and served a lovely buffet breakfast each morning. On the 4th day we made our coach departure for the Istanbul airport without a hitch, and flew to Bucharest. All of our tours ... Read More...

Uniworld & River Royale Really Get It!,

7/4/2012

This cruise was our first river cruise, and we rate it a "5+ star" in all major categories. Even better than most of the "ocean" cruises we have taken. The staff were extremely friendly, courteous and always there to help. Our cruise director Gabrielle was totally awesome and ought to be on stage (in fact I heard at the end of our cruise that this is exactly what she will be doing)! 

We were certainly pleased with the luxury and comfort of our cabin, as well as the lounge and dining room. Our room steward, Csaba, was especially wonderful and took ...

We had been to France in the past, but this was our first time to explore the Burgundy & Provence regions. Travelling via the River Royale is certainly the way to go, and we especially enjoyed our four days in Aix-en-Provence on our own prior to boarding in Arles. Our biggest & warmest "thank you" and a bigger Merci, a bientot! to the entire crew!

Imperial Waterways of Russia,

6/9/2012
Just returned from a most wonderful adventure on the River Victoria. Although future travelers are warned that the ship is not owned by Uniworld and may not have all the expected amenities, we found her to be almost as wonderful as the fabulous River Beatrice, which we enjoyed on the Danube in 2010.

The ship is fresh and clean. We walked through several other river ships (all apparently made by the same company) when we were double or triple docked, and the Victoria is without doubt the most attractive of all the ships we saw. The ... Read More...

Fantastic Danube Cruise,

I wonder who's in cabin 315 now.

On April 19, 2012 we departed Los Angeles International Airport for Budapest via Heathrow Airport in England. We were excited because this was to be our first river cruise, though we had enjoyed ocean cruising prior to this. My wife Rosalie was having a "big" birthday and always wanted a river cruise and loved a previous trip to Budapest. So naturally, a river cruise from Budapest to Passau on the Danube would be just the thing.

My Internet research indicated that the highest rated Danube river ... Read More...

A terrific cruise!,

5/14/2012
I traveled solo on the River Royale through Provence and Burgundy from April 29-May 6, 2012 and couldn't have enjoyed myself more. I am sold on Uniworld and river cruising. I kept a blog during the trip; if you are interested in reading about the shore excursions, meals, and my impressions, go to http://www.riverroyale.weebly.com. I also wrote a five-star critique on cruisecritic.com but it's a bit repetitive with the blog. http://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=102349 This was truly a trip to remember.
