Douro River Uniworld
"Tables for breakfast should be cleared before being set There should have been waiter service on the top deck and glasses were regularly left on this deck overnight Some of the staff stood out (receptionist), tour guide, waitresses and barman Cruise Director was a liability and should remember that her attitude to passengers should be kind, friendly and patient - she was not any of those Bar service was good On the basis of this trip we would not travel on Uniworld again, this was influenced by Cruise director and maleThat is in contrast to the male waiters that were not...."Read More

Fabulous Cruise - Perhaps Not Quite as Premium as We'd Hoped.

We have done one previous Uniworld cruise in Bordeaux in 2018 and absolutely loved it. At the end of that trip we asked our fabulous cruise manager Tania, what cruise she recommended and she suggest the Douro. Due to COVID disruptions, we finally did it in September 2022. We booked a top deck (Azores Deck), cabin No. 309 which was a Suite (220 Sq ft/20 sq m) and were delighted with this cabin. ...

We had previously been on Avalon (Budapest to Amsterdam), Scenic (Bordeaux) and enjoyed both but had not done the Douro which is why we booked on Uniworld Food was average - we expected a greater selection of Portuguese food, hot drinks warm only. The female waiters are the best, they work hard and make sure our needs were met. That is in contrast to the male waiters that were not. Tables ...

Uniworld’s tagline is you deserve the best. This is a luxury brand and as guests we should be treated to luxury. I have taken three previous Uniworld cruises that lived up to their reputation. This was far and away the worst of any previous ones taken. The accommodations were cramped, housekeeping was inconsistent, some of the wait staff seemed disinterested and there were times we needed to get ...

Food not that great. Too much riding buses to excursions. COVID spread on ship probably due to overcrowding on bus to sites. Crew very nice. I would not recommend this Douro cruise. Excursions not that interesting. Archeological museum tour, there was no museum, only viewed rocks with scratches. 7 km dusty, pothole filled ride to site on overcrowded Toyota SUV. This was after a one hour ...

I gave Riviera Cruises the worst ever food rating, well here’s some good news for them Uniworld wins hands down for the tasteless school dinners they served up. Crew were lovely and attentive , ship is new so really nice but the fine dinning you expect For the money they charge is missing. I could write a short novel about the crap they served up but I guess you get the picture. The tours were ...
