This was the second to last cruise of the year. Things ran smoothly, and the crew were a well-oiled machine. They were faultless, professionalism and enthusiasm were apparent. We felt cared for. Food was to a very high standard. Not classic but excellent which is what you want on an unpretentious cruise like this. Evenings were smart but laid back and most of all fun. I expected to find the ...

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 ...

My brother has done several river cruises with UNIWORLD and has always spoke highly of those experiences. We decided to join him and his wife on the Douro River cruise on board Queen Isabel. I expected a five star trip but this was not the case. The actual cruising time is only four nights. I don't think we needed two nights in Porto before sailing. We certainly did not need two nights at a place ...

I chose this cruise because I've always wanted to explore Portugal. Uniworld offered waived single supplements & I and several of my friends decided on this trip. From the moment we arrived in Lisbon to the day we reluctantly left the cruise ship we were pampered with excellent service, delicious food, entertained with wonderful local talent and guided by amazing tour guides. I thoroughly enjoyed ...

We were invited to go with a group. My wife had always wanted to go on a river Cruise. People had recommended Uniworld and the Duoro river cruise to us. It was a beautiful voyage to a unique place. I would have liked more physically vigorous activities and a bit better fitness facility, especially in the light of the wonderful food and wine that was included. Our group was united in our ...

Uniworld was recommended by our travel professional and from online reviews, we could only surmise that Uniworld knows how to do a river cruise. And guess what? The recommendations were spot on! The Queen Isabella is a fine ship and the crew is just spectacular. Our cruise director, Tomas, is top notch and the entire crew matches him in professionalism, dedication, focus, and motivation. ...

We were surprising my wife's sister and her friend. We had planned the trip for six months ane were able to keep it a secret until we caught up with the at the hotel in Lisbon. We were surprised to find the Douro River so scenic. The stops and excursions were all excellent, picturesque and informative. We had 10 days of cloudless skies and moderate temperatures. We particularly liked ...

We choose a uniworld cruise on Queen Isabel, which was a special offer in the Telegraph. Had a most enjoyable river cruise on the Douro. Cruise staff were helpful and friendly, very efficient cruise director. Interesting variety of visits, including two vineyards, and the Douro National Park. Food was excellent and all trips and tips included. Cabin very small but functional, could of done ...

We enjoyed this stay/cruise and felt it compared favourably to our previous river cruise with Viking. 2 nights pre-cruise in Madrid plus 2 nights post-cruise in Lisbon with a week on the Douro in between was a formula that worked very well. I think in fact if we had opted for the more usual 7 days Porto-Porto we would have felt slightly underwhelmed. The Queen Isabel was comfortable and well ...

Just returned home from Uniworld's Eastern Europe Highlight's trip. Five star all the way. Service is tops, ship - River Princess beautiful. One of the older generation ships so staterooms are small. However, very well designed and lots of storage. My favorite river cruise company and I am a Travel Agent. The ports were interesting and off the beaten track - we cruised from Romania - ...
