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

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
