Excellent Ship! Brilliant Staff!

Sail Date: June 2014
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Embarkation: Budapest
We chose to do a river cruise for our 50th wedding anniversary. We had done a number of ocean cruises but never a river cruise. After having completed this river cruise we will never go back to an ocean cruise. There is no comparison. With a river cruise your view changes constantly. We embarked in Budapest and disembarked in Amsterdam. The river princess is one classy ship. The food and entertainment were exceptional.

However what made it, was the crew. By the second day they knew us by our names, and were very attentive to our every little whim! Unfortunately after a week or so we had to transfer to another ship do to low water. The transfer was seamlessly, the bus ride through the country side was enjoyable. And we were at our next destination after a ride of an hour or so, in time for our on shore excursions.

We then boarded our new ship, the river empress.

The river empress was a let down after the River Princess. Although it had been renovated at the More beginning of the year, it just didn't have the ambiance of the Princess. The staff for the most part were much less attentive, the food although good was not as exceptional as the Princess. However even with the disappointment with the Empress we will sail with Uniworld again in the near future.. Less

Cabin review: 308

The cabin was comfortable enough. Very clean. The beds exceptional comfortable. However as to be expected they are small. But very little time is spent in the cabin anyhow. This particular cabin had no internet.
