We absolutely loved our trip on the Duchess. We departed from Amsterdam ( we stayed there for a week before embarking and would recommend to do this) on 27th July and ended in Istanbul in Mid August. Everything, from the minute that we ... Read more

After taking several sea cruises we decided to try out a river cruise. We chose this itinerary (Budapest to Bucharest with a land tour to Istanbul) because of the "less traveled" countries visited and the opportunity to see ... Read more

This was an incredible cruise and definitely worth the money. Our room was on the 2nd floor near the coffee lounge. We thought it may have been noisy and thought we would request an upgrade before we even went to our room. We looked at ... Read more

As we were wanting a trip special enough to help us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, we decided The River Duchess sounded perfect! As it turned out we weren't disappointed at all. Our embarkation in Amsterdam went very smoothly. Our ... Read more

Our travel agent recommended it, as high quality and all-inclusive (e.g., no port fees, no tips). The crew, ship, amenities, tours (including choices), and food were outstanding. The crew could not do enough for us, and accommodated ... Read more

We were a little hesitant to do a river cruise: would we at less than 60 be the youngest? Will we be confined? Can we take 10 nights of RSL entertainment? On all accounts wrong! Mid range age, great facilities on ship, fabulous ... Read more

We spent two weeks with Uniworld on the Danube from Vienna to Bucharest with an extension to Istanbul. We are repeat cruisers with Uniworld and were once again delighted with the service and the experience. Inclusion of tours at each stop ... Read more

I spent 33 days in Europe in October 2015, mostly on Uniworld's River Duchess, sailing an itinerary known as the "Grand European River Voyage." This itinerary (which will be changed for 2016) starts in Amsterdam and sails the ... Read more

We spent two glorious weeks sailing from Amsterdam to Vienna on the River Duchess. The ship was beautifully appointed from our lovely state room to the public common areas such as the lounge and formal dining room. The service was top ... Read more

We couldn't fault the service, food and rooms. Tours were done well with experienced guides and usually less than 22 people per guide. The lack of internet for the trip from Bucharest to Amsterdam was unacceptable. While a ... Read more

We have sailed with Uniworld many times, after trying some of the other river cruise companies out there. Unlike the other companies, every trip with Uniworld has been wonderful. Uniworld exceeds our expectations on every level and just ... Read more

There a number of things that disappointed us in regards to this last cruise with Uniworld First they never told we needed to call Austria Airlines and Air Canada for seat reservations. United did not understand our confirmation numbers ... Read more

My husband and I wanted to see the tulips in the Netherlands, and tour the area. We decided on a river cruise, and chose the River Duchess, a Uniworld boat. Everything was all inclusive, and I was a skeptic. I was sure the staff would ... Read more

WHAT’S the better – an ocean voyage on a super liner or a boat on the river? For me the river boat wins hands down. My wife and I are not long back from a Uniworld cruise from Amsterdam to Vienna along the Rhine, Main, and ... Read more

We are regular Silversea cruisers, and we decided on Uniworld based in part on reviews but also because they started an all-inclusive program this year. It was our first river cruise, and it was very enjoyable at all levels. The crew was ... Read more

In 2013 the cruise we booked with Uniworld started in Istanbul and ended in Amsterdam. Unfortunately for us, the rains in Europe, June 2013, caused the rivers to flood and we were stopped in Vienna and could go no further. The captain, ... Read more

We've been on Windstar, Viking, Peter Deilmann, Paul Gaugain, Grand Circle, and a few others but our recent trip with Uniworld for the Tulips and Windmills cruise was the best. While the cabins were small, they were very well organized, ... Read more

You want to be pampered and looked after as royalty I believe you can depend on Uniworld. We were a group of 3 couples who needed to relax and enjoy our time peacefully.  This cruise was suggested to us by our travel agent. From the ... Read more

Having done many ocean cruises this was our first river boat trip. I love the itinerary, in our case from Istanbul to Bucarest to Vienna but found the cabin uncomfortably small.I had a premium cabin with a "french balcony" (translates as ... Read more

We were first-time river cruisers. We have never been interested in large ocean going cruising. We have taken sailing cruises and loved them. We enjoy the small number of passengers and camaraderie that come with the smaller ships. The ... Read more

This was our first river cruise and we were not really sure what to expect. We have enjoyed several ocean cruises and knew how much the staff and service can affect your enjoyment of your journey. Having said that, we were also concerned ... Read more

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 ... Read more
