Luxury at its finest

Sail Date: August 2014
Destination: Italy
Embarkation: Venice
My husband and I just returned from the Uniworld River Countess cruise in Venice and Northern Italy. This was not a traditional river cruise, since the Po river is not always accessible, but we sailed on the beautiful lagoon and traveled by bus to the many cities we visited. Some days the bus rides were a bit long but not a problem. We visited Padova, Verona, Ravenna, Bologna, Venice, . We had a pasta making demo and lunch in Bologna. The cruise line provides a group for slower walkers when touring which is admirable.

The River Countess was lovely. The all inclusive Uniworld tradition is marvelous. Everything about the cruise was top notch. The staff was fabulous, always ready to meet your needs. The food and dining room was excellent......the presentation and quality always terrific.

The evenings could have had a bit more entertainment....a musician was on board and they brought a singer on for one night.

Embarkation and debarkation was handles with ease. More

Once you've gone with Uniworld you are spoiled for anything else.

This was a fabulous experience and we can't wait to go with Uniworld again in the future. Less
