Mostly smooth sailing except in North Atlantic. Ship clean & maintained. Excellent, quick service. Cabin & shower small as usual. Virtual Balcony was very nice. Excellent entertainment (although focused toward Brits-some humor not understood). Some problems with shore excursions - late tram in Lisbon, poor audio equipment, hard to understand guides, long walk from/to bus in Pisa. Fun trivia games, especially with Canadian Emily who spoke very clearly. Wish we had an extra day in Rome. Some coordination problems with disembarkation at Vigo-long wait. Transfer bus to airport was stuffy-no air while waiting to leave. Some issues with ship design - only one women’s toilet in gym; automatic door difficult to close. Some lockers too high to reach. Jacuzzi in gym sometimes closed; no jets, not hot enough. Jacuzzi in Solarium no jets only bubbles. Need more variety and more healthy options in Promenade Cafe. Corner of Schooner Bar was stinky but better after notifying Guest Services. Trivia/quizzes need to be in larger venue, especially on sea days. Read Less

Locations visited and length of cruise was perfect. The staff was exceptional, and the food was delicious and plentiful! The wait staff kept the wine glasses filled as requ at both lunch and dinner. Although we weren’t on the optional drink plan, the wine selections were very good. It was a very comfortable journey...not rushed, and we enjoyed the actual cruise alng the rivers. Seeing the scenery of vineyards, small villages, old castles, windmills and large cities lit up at night was an unexpected delight and it was glorious. On our last evening in Budapest, the captain took the boat out on the river to see the glorious lighting on all the buildings. It was beautiful! Because of the smaller size and fewer passengers, we had time to meet, chat with and relax at the lunches and dinners with other guests. We would sit with some several times at both lunch and dinner, as well as see them on the daily walking tours. We exchanged contact information with some of them. Read Less

We have travelled with Uniworld on other cruises and had found them very good. The Douro Valley was on our 'must do' list. Both the cruise and the ship exceeded expectations. Although the usual things ( mentioned below) met expectations it was the attitude of the staff on board and on arranged tours that made the trip very special. The staff were more than just friendly and helpful - they were an integral part of the experience. Their humour alone was worth the trip. Shore excursions were effortless and enjoyable, the scenery along the way was magnificant. Were held a professional conference on board for 80 delegates and although the ship was not designed for conferencing the ships crew did everything necessary to facilitate the smooth running of our conference including the rearranging of furniture and the set up of conference facilities daily, rescheduling tours, meals and events to accommodate conference sessions.

We went on this cruise because it was a good way to see Europe without having to plan out the whole trip. The ship was great! All of the crew was AMAZING. The food was really good too! Our family ate on the boat for almost every meal. There were always so many options to pick from and the waiters really took the time to get to know you. We also met most of our friends during meal times. EVERYONE that we talked to on the boat was so nice. We made so many new friends who we are planning on visiting in the future. The excursions were fantastic. It was helpful that we had a guided tour at each location because it helped us know where we were and where we needed to meet to get back on the boat. I would recommend Viking to anyone because it was effortless to plan. The whole trip was planned out for you and all you had to do was show up. It was perfect for a family or couple or individual who has never been to Europe before. I think our whole family would go on another Viking Cruise. Read Less
