Uniworld Classic Christmas Markets

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Embarkation: Other
After a week of personal travel through Germany and Austria, we arrived in Nuremberg for our river cruise. We have traveled with Uniworld six times before and expected this cruise to be the same high quality as those others.

We were not disappointed. From the time we dropped off our luggage until we left at the end of our cruise, we were treated like family. We had sailed before with the Captain and Zoltan, the ship's entertainer, and both remembered us and went out of their way to welcome us.

It is obvious that the crew of the River Queen are proud of their ship. It was spotless at all times, the food and service in the dining room was absolutely outstanding, the bar staff was quick and professional, and everyone worked hard to make the cruise memorable.

The tours at each of the ports were handled by outstanding guides. We even remembered a few from previous cruises. They were well planned, leaving plenty of time in the Christmas Markets. I took only More one optional tour on this cruise, the Beer Tour, and it was great. I'm glad it wasn't offered in every port since I never would have gotten to see any Christmas Markets.

Uniworld is the cream of the crop of English speaking European River cruise lines for a reason and they proved it on this cruise. It could not have been any better.

We are currently booked on one more Uniworld cruise and will book another when the 2014 schedule comes out. Less

Cabin review: 1412 Standard Stateroom

Cabin 412 is on the top deck of the River Queen. It is laid out the same as all the other staterooms on the ship, with the exception of the suites, which are larger. This room has floor to ceiling windows and excellent light blackening curtains. The bed is extremely comfortable with high quality linens. There is plenty of storage space, good lighting, and sufficient electrical outlets. The bathroom is good sized for a river boat. There is no noise at all from the engines or the bow thrusters. It is on the same deck as the dining room and if people leaving the dining room are loud, you can hear it. Overall a great cabin.
