Suggested by my travel agent. Then I read many reviews and felt confident it would be a great river cruise. No disappointment at all. The ship was the SS Maria Theresa, very opulent and beautiful decorated. The food was ... Read more

Choose Uniworld to go along with friends. What a great surprise; our expectations were far exceeded. Even after having lived in Germany for 3 years in the early 90s, it was great. Can't believe all the neat places we toured that we had ... Read more

On the first day we were pampered from the dock to the ship by three very attentive crew members. Our room was clean and neat every day. Room supplies were replenished everyday x2. The excursions as we traveled were well planned and ... Read more

This was a bucket list fulfilled. The ship was great. Rooms not huge but we spent so little time in them it didn't matter. The good thing about the ship was that it can sail in low and high water where a larger ship may not be able to. ... Read more

We arrived in Paris 2 days before our cruise and spent the time seeing the Parisian sites. We didn't realize that lunch was available on board the first day before the ship embarked on our cruise, so take advantage of that. Our ship the ... Read more

Cruise went through Normandy which we had always wanted to see. The trip to the D Day beaches was very emotional and overwhelming at the same time. You actually could spend days there, but we only had the one day. Seeing the American ... Read more

The cruise was lovely. The ports were of great interest and the natural beauty of the Danube was amazing. We flew in to Prague and spent 2 nights there. It was my favorite city. The music, historic sites and the food were very good. Don't ... Read more

Uniworld had consistently excellent reviews for the Castles on the Rhine trip and our experience lived up to all the expectations. We spent a few days in Basel and Lake Luzerne prior to embarkation and it was a very easy city to explore on ... Read more

This was our first River Cruise. Everything about it lived up to expectations and more - the food, cabin, service, shore excursions, staff - no complaints on any count. The 'compactness' of the cabin took a little while to get used ... Read more

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
