This cruise was our third with Uniworld. We love the attention to detail, the fact that almost everything is included in the cruise fare, the cuisine, the places visited, the use of local guides and entertainers to enhance the experience, and the friendliness and professionalism of the Uniworld staff. There were about 140 passengers on the cruise, and the average age was 50+. The cruise is marketed in English speaking countries, so the passengers were from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and even a couple from South Africa.
Each day we visited local ports and saw small towns, castles, cathedrals, and had shopping opportunities. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet style and dinner is more formal with a menu. Wine is available at lunch and dinner at no additional charge. The cabins are not large but they are very well designed with lots of storage space and flat screen TVs. We were quite comfortable. A hairdryer and bath products are provided. There is a large public lounge, a smaller one, and a sun deck which didn't get much use on our cruise because the sky was overcast. Most of the ports are accessible by foot right from the dock, but for those that aren't there are buses ready and waiting. We also opted to spend two nights in Lucerne on a precruise extension to adjust to the time change. It was very nice, we stayed at a historic hotel in the old part of town and there was a local host who gave us suggestions and provided a walking tour and boat ride. Overall, one of our best vacations ever.
