We chose this cruise because it neatly dovetailed with a 2 week tour of France that we were completing on its sailing date. This was our 6th river cruise and we had travelled with Uniworld on the River Countess in Italy a few years ago, ... Read more

This was our first river cruise, and the Uniworld Cruise Line was highly recommended to us. I can now understand why. The ship, our suite, the crew, the dining, and the service were impeccable. From embarkation to disembarkation, we ... Read more

Uniworld came highly recommended by our travel agent. It did not disappoint! We sailed from Paris to Normandy. The tour guides were excellent. The ship's staff were superb and well beyond expectations. The food was excellent and they ... Read more

Just returned from Uniworld's 14 day "Portrait of Majestic France" itinerary. This is a "back-to-back itinerary" with 7 days on the River Baroness on the Seine River from Paris through the Normandy region and 7 days on ... Read more

My husband and I wanted a shorter (not 14 night) cruise and had heard how lovely the Seine cruise and Normandy beaches were. Uniworld made it a positive experience from beginning to end. The recent flooding made it impossible to leave ... Read more

I had never been to France and wanted to see Paris & the Normandy region. If I could do it over, I would have arrived in Paris 3 days ahead of our river cruise to make sure I saw more of the city. The ship was beautiful and the crew ... Read more

I had sailed on Uniworld before and knew the line to be excellent. This cruise had an interesting itinerary which was new to me. Also, it was a cruise on which the single supplement was waived, which I appreciated as a single traveller. ... Read more

Just a few notes on this cruise. First the much discussed room size. Yes the rooms, with the exception of the suites, are very small, very well executed with plush drapes, well lit bath, a great hair dryer, small closet and little ... Read more

This was our first river cruise and trip to France. What a wonderful experience. The crew were amazing and provided world class service. The food was magnificent. The room cozy but more than enough, since you spent most of your time ... Read more

The cruise on the Seine from Paris to Normandy and back to Paris was wonderful, but not what we expected. We had done the Uniworld 14-day cruise on the Rhine last year and it was thoroughly relaxing and simultaneously exciting. This cruise ... Read more

We began on June 14 in Paris to Normandy on the River Baroness--very small cabins, but manageable--crew in total were FANTASTIC. The same goes for the food and service we received. There was an air of closeness--in a good way. We ... Read more

Having just returned from the Paris/Normandy cruise on the River Baroness, we could not fault the Uniworld service or friendliness and consideration of the staff or the fact that the food was good. However, for the sake of those ... Read more

From the moment we stepped through customs at CDG, we were pampered by Uniworld staff. Our Paris guide met us at the airport, and accompanied us to our shuttle. Once in our hotel, our guide (Pierre) provided information about the city, and ... Read more

Our TA indicated that the time period was when the France were on holiday. Some think that places would be closed but we did not find any place closed nor did the time period effect our travels. With one exception, one of our guides in ... Read more

We had done an AMS-BUD on Tauck which we loved and were looking forward to the same experience in France. Unfortunately Tauck did not offer this itinerary. Our TA suggested we try Uniworld due the Red Carnation connection and the rehabbing ... Read more

Our Grand France trip on Uniworld in August was 5-star. Both the River Baroness and River Royale exceeded our expectations. The trip began in Paris, which was the least of our favorite due to the large number of tourists, pick-pocketers ... Read more
