Just a few notes on this cruise.
First the much discussed room size. Yes the rooms, with the exception of the suites, are very small, very well executed with plush drapes, well lit bath, a great hair dryer, small closet and little shelving. The room was meticulously maintained. Yet we managed nicely , just be aware that the rooms are small by today's standards.
Dining -Breakfast and lunch are buffets with multiple choices. There is a chef preparing any egg dish you desire, and always a menu with extra items such as crepes. Fresh fruits, juices, champagne, always 4 French Fromage, multiple bread items, etc. Lunch is again a buffet with hot and cold sandwich choices, soup, salad bar with fresh vegetables, and at least 3 composed salads and again those French Frommages with condiments. Fresh vegetables are always on the buffet and the use of European vegetables such as Kohlrabi was great for those of us who live in places not offering these choices. Several desserts, ice creams, and whole fruit were always available. If you desire something and it is not in site, just ask and this great crew usually makes it appear. Dinner is a seated dinner and luckily tables are not reserved. There are multiple entrees, always a vegetarian entrée, American thickness steak, baked potato, Caesar salad with condiments, chicken breast and salmon. White and red wines are always available , again the wonderful cheeses and condiments.
There is an open bar policy and your beverage brings a few munchies. A 24 hr coffee/cappuccino machine is always available along with cookies and jars of candy.
It is the service that sets this line apart. The staff just goes overboard to insure the happiness of each guest. The cruise director Thierry worked tirelessly to insure that every passenger was satisfied. Multiple walking tours designed for those who want to a more vigorous experience and for those who need to move slowly.
The ship has a piano player to provide music during tea time and during the evening hours. Guest entertainment came aboard on several ports. WIFI is available and I found the speed to be quite good.
We have traveled the rivers of Europe with several companies and would not hesitate to recommend Uniworld.
Very plush wall coverings and drapes. TV is imbedded in mirrored wall. Rooms are very small, no doubt about it and this is well discussed on their web site. Bath is brightly lit and they provide a good hairdryer. Also you will find a multiple 110 and 220 outlets.
