Crunchy but good

This was our first uniworld cruise, and to be honest I did not like the ship. It was very claustrophobic: low ceilings, outsized furniture in small spaces, I always felt like I was sqeezing past other guests, ...

Another Excellent Uniworld Cruise

This was the fifth Uniworld cruise for my wife and me and it immediately followed the Highlights of Eastern Europe on the S.S. Beatrice. Our experience on the Beatrice did not meet the Uniworld standards so we were ...

Wonderful Cities; GREAT ART - NOT A CRUISE, a BUS tour!

Port of Embarkation, above, is incorrect. It was Milan, Italy, but this is not an available choice! My wife and I chose this cruise because we wanted to see the magnificent art of Italy and we wanted to return ...

History, relaxing luxury (and lots of water!)

This was my first "river" cruise (in quotes because we did not actually sail on a river, but instead around the Venice lagoon) and probably also the most "luxury" cruise I've taken. Next would probably have been my ...

Not a River Cruise; in Fact not a Cruise at all

Had been on a number of Uniworld River Cruises and really enjoyed them but this was definitely not a cruise. The boat only moved about 4 times, and twice everyone had to be off the boat. Most of the time the boat ...

Magic with Uniworld

Have cruised with Uniworld before and always wanted to go to Venice. The River Countess was docked right in the heart of Venice which meant all the main sights were only a short stroll away. The experience ...

I am just back from a fantastic holiday in Italy, and loved my experience with Uniworld and the River Countess. We started with the pre-cruise add-on in Milan, which was a great start to our vacation. The ...

The only way to see Venice and immediate area.....

I chose the cruise because it was a decent price and I had never visited Venice before. I wasn't overly excited for the cruise before leaving, as I love cruising on the rivers and this was not on a river. From ...

Disappointing

Was billed as a 7 day river cruise, but we really did not much cruising. 5 of the 7 nights we were docked at the cruise port in Venice. From the ship there several shore excursions offered in Venice, all of which ...

This was our third cruise with Uniworld and they continue to provide the level of service and quality that keeps us coming back. This is a very unique "river" cruise in that it is likely you won't be sailing a ...
