Castles along the Rhine,

3/4/2014
My husband and I enjoyed our first river cruise October 2013. WOW! We had beautiful weather and a fantastic crew! All of the crew were amazing. Our Captain and Hotel Manager were very friendly and always mingling with passengers, making sure that our experience was top notch. Valentino, our waiter, was fabulous and always so accommodating! All the excursions were wonderful and the guides were great! My husband and I are deciding on another river cruise for this fall. Hope they aren't booked yet! We highly recommend Uniworld for a ...

Great ship, great crew, great time.
Cruise: Danube Holiday Markets Ship: River Beatrice

Castles along the Rhine,

1/27/2014
We were never disappointed during our cruise from Basel to Amsterdam. Every wish, every possible want was anticipated and fulfilled. The crew were a pleasure, very friendly, very obliging and so helpful. Coming from so many countries, just talking to them about their lives was an additional highlight of your trip. Our cabin, the food, the tours, everything was special. Would happily do another cruise anytime.

Parisian Winter Holiday 2013,

1/22/2014
Uniworld’s Paris Winter Holiday was a wonderful cruise. There were so many great sights to see, and the excursions were fantastic. The cruise manager did a fabulous job juggling any challenge that came his way. Seeing the wonderful palaces and museums in December rather than in summer is a great way to avoid the crowds. The hotel and restaurant staff are the best in the business. The food is just amazing, from some of the best soups we’ve ever had to a fantastic dinner menu each evening. The hotel manager was extremely generous with her ... Read More...

Cruise: Grand Christmas & New Year's Cruise Ship: River Empress

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 Camodia, 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.

Christmas Market Cruise River Duchess,

12/20/2013
I recently returned from a week-long cruise aboard the River Duchess. We sailed the Danube from Vienna to Nurnberg and experienced many Christmas traditions and learned the history of many of the small places enroute. The cruise was great and I would recommend it highly. The staff were exceptional, very efficient, knowledgeable and lots of fun. I especially appreciated the efforts of the chef to provide locally sourced foods, and the wide variety he had on the menus for dinner and the buffets for lunch and supper. The young service people in the dining room, treated ... Read More...

Cruise: Grand China & the Yangtze Ship: Century Legend

cheers was a wonderful guide,

11/2/2013
We just returned from China and the Yangzee tour. Oct 2013 was a great time to go to China. Weather was great no rain while we were there. cheers was our guide and she did a wonderful job. We know she did a lot to take care of us. Went out of her way to make the trip to her country special. Everything couldn't have gone any better. It is a fast paced trip because you fly a lot. But you stay in most places a couple of days. We feel we saw most of the highlights in ... Read More...
Cruise: China, Tibet & the Yangtze Ship: Century Legend

The Beatrice and her crew were terrific!,

11/1/2013
We just returned from a mid-October sailing on the River Beatrice. The Beatrice is a beautiful ship and the crew was excellent. The kitchen manager should be complemented on how well his team worked. Our server (Hristo) was outstanding. The food was not only tasty, it was beautifully presented. I loved the cold, fruit soups on the lunch dessert display! The cruise manager was amazing and I don't know when she slept! She always had a smile on her face and kept us posted on the situation with the lock in Slovakia. We knew ... Read More...
Cruise: Enchanting Danube Ship: River Beatrice

Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia and the Mekong,

10/31/2013
We took this cruise/tour from Oct 10 to 25 (with the Ha Long Bay extension). The cruise/tour surpassed all our expectations. Each day’s excursions and the knowledgeable guides provided countless, first-hand opportunities to experience multiple facets of Vietnam and Cambodia. The level of service on the cruise ship River Orchid, in the hotels, and on the excursions was consistently top notch. Staff members were invariably friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful. Every day, we wondered if we had died and gone to heaven! In short, the cruise/tour was outstanding from beginning to end! Eileen ... Read More...

Perfect Adventure for adult children and senior parents!,

10/1/2013
I just wanted to drop you a line. My sister , mother and I just completed our first Uni-world 12 day cruise through Germany.

What a delight. It was perfect for the more active like my sister and I and also for my 80 year old mother, who sometime was content to just sit and watch the action from the boat.

We got to enjoy the historic outings whether she felt up to it or not.

I highly recommend this vacation for Adult children and their parents. Everyone will have a good time, even the mobility challenged. />
The service and friendliness of the staff were incredible. They often would even check on my mother when I was not on board.

The food was great, and historical tours were just the right pace. We so enjoyed so much this, that we may do it again in two years, to China.

Having been on many large impersonal liners, but this was perfect with the intimacy of the 130 passengers. The 35 employees on board became like family.

It's like a floating hotel.

I have a feeling this well kept secret will not be a secret much longer.

What a wonderful experience. Read More...
Cruise: European Serenade Ship: River Duchess

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...

Great Trip,

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...
Cruise: Imperial Waterways of Russia Ship: River Victoria

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,

Cruise: European Jewels Ship: River Queen

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...
