Having heard Uniworld was supposed to be a large cut ahead of the rest, I decided to explore Spain and Portugal on a cruise tour from Madrid to Lisbon. The tour director and organization of the sightseeing were outstanding. The Duoro River ... Read more

We were at first somewhat hesitant about the Maria Theresa because it is definitely decorated much like a Barouqe palace. At first, the decor is a little overwhelming but it is surprising how quickly one becomes accustomed and comfortable ... Read more

This cruise was recommended by our relatives. It was truly a marvelous experience in every respect. The rooms were exquisitely appointed and comfortable. I just wish that they were a bit larger, which was why I rated it a 4/5. The food ... Read more

The rooms on this ship are tiny. Ours was a suite, which had a nice bathroom, but otherwise was about the same size as the regular rooms. The dining room was constantly over crowded. The food was mediocre at best and awful at worst. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of our previous excellent experiences with Uniworld. We’re not sure how Uniworld does it, but their organization clearly has a unique way of attracting fabulous staffers. Uniworld's team members are not ... Read more

Well organized cruise with pre-extension in Basel and post-extension in Amsterdam. Uniworld personnel were attentive, well organized, and all aspects of the cruise with airport transfers were without a hitch. The no extra tipping policy ... Read more

My mother, who passed away earlier this summer, swore she would never go on a cruise. My father, widowed at the ripe young age of 79 and overwhelmed by sadness and being alone, asked me to accompany him on a cruise. We had friends who ... Read more

This was my second cruise with Uniworld. The ship River Queen was beautiful. Fully renovated but kept its good bones. Activities offered each day were well planned and extremely interesting to me for the historic value. Ample time given to ... Read more

We got home last night from the long flights from Cairo. It was well worth the effort. Our Uniworld Nile River Cruise experience in Egypt was as if we were on a 5 star VIP private tour with an expert Egyptologist. Hatem was very ... Read more

We booked with Uniworld in a suite, category 1, room 403. The food was excellent, butler extremely efficient. The staff was just working. I'm not sure why they started this cruise knowing the river was low in certain sections and may ... Read more

My wife and I (both in our late 30's/early 40's) booked a Category 1 stateroom (201) on the River Ambassador for May 2015. She had always wanted to visit Prague and go on a river cruise along the Danube, so this itinerary was the perfect ... Read more

We had never been on a River Cruise, just Ocean cruises. The crowds did not appeal on the big boats. The River cruise with Uniworld was fantastic, we didn't want to leave. The bed was so comfortable, the ship beautiful and so well kept. ... Read more
