Review for Scenic Jade to Europe - River Cruise

User Avatar
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Itinerary was what we wanted. Turkey to Amsterdam. Scenic road portions are so well organized, giving you all kinds of surprises at every stop along the way. They use more buses than necessary so you aren't crammed in. Mostly Aussies, a few Kiwis and Canucks. Luckily, only a few from USA. Top hotels except Cannikali. Tanner the guide was more than fantastic. Then we boarded JADE and Nikola took ...

We wanted a river cruise experience, but to also see places we would not be comfortable traveling in country, depending on local service and infrastructure. Our July 2017 cruise through the Balkans was exactly as we hoped. This is not a picture postcard collection of adorable towns. Most sights are a bus ride inland, often through the ruins of the communist failure in this region. We found it ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We were a little hesitant to do a river cruise: would we at less than 60 be the youngest? Will we be confined? Can we take 10 nights of RSL entertainment? On all accounts wrong! Mid range age, great facilities on ship, fabulous entertainment with rich lectures on the local culture, top quality food, great, in fact superb staff - we had a ball. It may have helped that the boat being the ...

Grand European River Cruise

The Grand European Tour Viking River Cruise was a great itinerary. We spent one day in Istanbul before departure. The embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly. Our cabin was one with a French balcony, which was perfect. The weather was cool, but the covered deck on top made it comfortable to sit out. The local guides were excellent and very knowledgeable in all of the cities. The ...

We have sailed with Uniworld many times, after trying some of the other river cruise companies out there. Unlike the other companies, every trip with Uniworld has been wonderful. Uniworld exceeds our expectations on every level and just keeps getting better and better. From the moment you step onboard the crew is so welcoming and attentive. The really try to get to know you and provide ...

Very enjoyable trip of 29 days cruising the Danube, Maine and Rhine. Interesting stops along the way where we were able to get a good idea of the country side. Five luxury coaches were provided for off ship day trips. We were treated to five star dining, often using product grown locally. Staff were very pleasant and were there to help in any way. Entertainment was provided most evening often ...

My husband and I along with another couple took an AMA Waterways extended Danube cruise this fall, which started far from the Danube in Istanbul and ended somewhat past the Danube in Prague. There were 14 actual days on the ship with an almost total turnover of passengers and some crew in Budapest. There were many highlights -- several on the land extensions. Istanbul and Prague are both bucket ...

Sadly disappointing

Review for River Princess to Europe - River Cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

My wife and I are very experienced river cruisers. We have completed about a dozen to date, including three previously with Uniworld. After very good experiences with them, when we saw their promotion of a Grand European Voyage, our only hesitation was the price. We thought it very expensive, and by far the most costly we have ever undertaken: but it was for 29 days and it was from one side of ...

We just returned from Uniworld's 15 night Istanbul to Vienna with a Prague ad on. It was so totally different from an ocean cruise. The first 3 days were not what I expected, long bus rides to the towns and a day in the Iron Gates with not much to do on board. The cabins are very small, not enough room to pass each other around the bed! Also, the French Balcony was wasted when we were tied ...
