River cruising's dirty little secret- sometimes you don't get to cruise. We knew the day before we left home the ship would not be meeting us in Basal. Met by a bus at the dock and transfer was very seamless. Taken to Kehl Germany, even ... 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

For starters, Uniworld neglected to inform us that there would be a pickup at our hotel due to high water at the embarkation point. The physical condition of the ship is very nice. Clean, modern, decor a bit overdone but still very nice. ... Read more

It's difficult to begin to explain how good this cruise was! The ship, the staff, the experience, the tours, the professionalism, the food, the wine...was absolutely amazing! The moment we stepped on the beautiful SS Antoinette, we felt ... Read more

One has to feel sorry for the tourist industry in Egypt, continuing fighting and bombing, has turned tourists away. Bad news never turns us away, we flew down to Luxor and after visiting temples, we boarded the MS Tosca, a Uniworld ship. ... Read more

The on-ship survey instrument does not provide for sufficient comments to adequately reflect our experience on our Christmas Market Cruise. The cruise was wonderful and in many respects it was our best experience on Uniworld in our seven ... Read more

First the ship ---- This new ship is decorated to the finest detail. It is beautiful. Cruise the 'net' to find photos. Whatever you see online, won't do it justice. The cabin size was more than adequate with more storage space than ... Read more

Having just returned from the Paris/Normandy cruise on the River Baroness, we could not fault the Uniworld service or friendliness and consideration of the staff or the fact that the food was good. However, for the sake of those ... Read more

This was our first river cruise and we chose a cruise that included The Mosel River as we had heard how beautiful it was. That certainly was the case and the itinerary for the Legendary Rhine and Mosel was excellent. Our first choice 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
