We took our first river cruise on the brand new SS Antoinette with the Uniworld cruise company and were completely satisfied with our experience.It won't be our last river cruise!!!
We enjoyed four wonderful days in Switzerland in Zurich and Lucerne before boarding the ship in Basel on October 2.After cruising down the Rhine and enjoying the ports of call along the way,we can honestly say that there was nothing negative to say about the cruise.We met some wonderful people and visited some beautiful ports before arriving at our final destination in Amsterdam on October 9.
The service on this ship was first class all the way.Every department worked seamlessly together and for a new ship this is not always the case.The meals were deliciously prepared and delivered without incident by the very competent staff. The entertainment was truly enjoyable each and every evening(something I have never been able to say before)I don't even need to single out any staff as every single crew member seemed to enjoy working on this ship and their enthusiasm was infectious.
The new balcony with the ability to open and close according to the weather is something that every new ship should consider.What a wonderful way to make the most of the space which is often underused in rough seas or bad weather.Congratulations to the designer!
Anyone looking for a wonderful vacation need look no farther than Uniworld and the Antoinette.
Thanks everyone on board for making our vacation something we will always remember.Hope to see you all again.
