S.S. Antoinette Cruise Review by New Yorker 47
- Sail Date: December 2011
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: French Balcony Stateroom
The ports of call were nicely spaced so if you didn't want to leave the ship early you could select a later time, plus they provided transportation back to the ship if you wanted lunch on board. One of the things I really loved was their wireless speaker system, each tour group only had about 15-20 people and you didn't have to stand in a tight cluster to hear the tour guide, in fact you could wander ahead or hang back and still hear the tour guide remarks which made it a lot better experience.
We have been on many other cruises, but we are now sold on Uniworld because of the smaller boat you have an option of dining when you want, wine with lunch and dinner, an opportunity to sit with new people every night, form new groups, or just have a romantic dinner for two. Toward the end of our cruise we had low water, they gave us each ship credits and when we got home a check in the mail for any inconveniences we experienced. The first time when I left a ship there was no bill for our extras like wine, excursions, etc. Great experience can't say enough good things about the river cruise line and the SS Antoniette.
Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
Christmas marketsThis was our boarding port so we got in early and did some exploring on our own. The tour guide the next day took us to many spots we had missed the day before. Our only regret is we only purchased a few items because we thought with so many ports we would see things we wanted later. Don't miss Colon,they had some of the best markets especially by the chocolate factory where so many vendors carried unique items.View All 1 Christmas markets Reviews
