This was great. Everything was as advertised. The hotel in Milan, the Star, was excellent. The ground tours, included in the price, could not be bettered. We had excellent guides. They knew the geography and the history of the areas we were in. We went to places we would not have seen but for this trip, e.g. Padua, Ravenna. The sights they took us too were top notch, e.g. Dante's tomb in Ravenna. The mosaics in Ravenna and elsewhere were startling. Again, but for this trip we would not have seen them. The ship was excellent. It was clean. The air conditioning worked, not a small consideration when the temperature was 30+C. The food was excellent as was the complementary wine. We have been on other cruises with "complementary" wine not as good as the wine we had on the Countess. The staff were excellent as well. Uniformly helpful. The trip included a transfer to the airport in Venice. As it is under construction the transfer was helpful. The guide took us to check-in and then to security. Cannot beat that sort of service. Uniworld is the best.

Excellent in All Respects
