Underwhelming and repetitive

My wife and I chose the Uniworld river cruise as it was recommended by our travel agent due to the supposedly very high level of their food. We were looking forward to cruising down the Rhine, while viewing beautiful scenery, castles, and making interesting stops along the way from Amsterdam to Basel, all along being served first class food. It did not turn out that way. Let me first state the ...

My fiancé received an incentive trip provided by Brother sewing machines. We started in Amsterdam and also stopped in Germany, Switzerland and ending in Basel, France. All the way from special dining foods and wines in what ever region we were in was a delight on this all inclusive cruise. The service by the wonderful crew was superb! Nicolay runs a wonderful dining room, any request I had he ...

Very friendly welcome on this nice river boat. Cabin and bathroom small but very well decorated and efficiently furnished. All public areas are lovely. The service thoughout was good, at times too attentive, with someone passing by the table every few minutes to enquire if anything was needed. The self service laundry was very useful. The only disappointments were dinners and wine selection. ...

We had the suite right across the hall from the Mock's and totally agree with everything she wrote but we have some additional comments to present.... We have now cruised twice with both Viking and Uniworld. We even cruised this itinerary two years ago with Viking. We loved Viking and don't have anything bad to say about them but there are some differences between Uniworld and Viking that are ...

Our European Jewels cruise was everything we could have hoped for1 We loved the ship, River Empress, and the entire staff. The ship was sparkling clean and comfortable. The furnishings are plush, comfortable, and stylish (not utilitarian looking and hard). Our cabin was very comfortable and our butler was wonderful and helpful. The excursions were very good with an option for every individual's ...

This was our first river cruise, Castles along the Rhine, and after doing research and looking over reviews we are 100% happy we chose Uniworld. The staff were outgoing, accommodating, always said hello, and wanted to please you. Captain Ferdy was always present. At times even helping crew unloading garbage or tying up the ship. Food was excellent, with variety in the breakfast and lunch ...

Our travel agent recommended this. Extremely good choice due for needed attention on mobility. The cruise director and the staff went out of their way to make this possible. I would definitely cruise with Uniworld again, and hope very soon. The food was outstanding. The crew worked very well together and always with a smile and willing to help. I was not able to climb the stairs to the ...

There is a Reason Uniworld is Rated #1

This was our second cruise with Uniworld. It met all of our expectations and then some. After our experiences on our first cruise, our expectations were high. While I admit I haven't cruised with other lines, those that I talked with who have ay Uniworld does it better. The food, the service, the rooms and the "all-inclusiveness" are truly #1. We enjoyed shore excursions daily. We toured two small ...

We just returned from Castles along the Rhine and we're still excited about it. This being our first cruise ever we may not be the ones to ask but we cannot say enough good about this cruise line and our experience. We were encouraged by our travel agent to try Uniworld when we told her we were thinking river cruise. From the pick up at the airport on we continued to be impressed by the attention ...

Our travel agent suggested we try Uniworld for a river cruise. Together we chose Castles Along the Rhine. We were greeted at the airport in Amsterdam by a Uniworld representative and soon we were whisked away to meet our ship, the River Empress. We were impressed that Uniworld made that drive for just the two of us. We were greeted again at the ramp of the ship and shown to the lounge where we ...
