  3. River Ambassador
This was our second Uniworld cruise, having done Basel to Amsterdam two years ago. The Ambassador is among their smaller ships but our suite was outstanding. There was a nice sized witting area with plenty of storage and closet space. The bath was large, double sinks and a big walk in shower and was well appointed. These suites look like what you would expect to fine in a five star hotel. The other staterooms on this ship were pretty small (10x12) so I strongly recommend you go online to look at the dimensions of the rooms on any of their ships... they can vary greatly. The Ambassador had the best staff I've run across. The tour Director, Ramona appeared to work 24 hours a day to please passengers. She even arranged for some private tours for us along the way, for an additional charge which was very reasonable. Our butler, Zelko treated us like royalty as did the bar staff and wait staff, particularly Zlotko, Sam, De Jan and others. The food was wonderful and the chef was always offering to make us something else if he thought we didn't like what was on the menu. But the menu choices were always varied, well prepared and beautifully presented. This was honestly the most trouble free vacation we've ever been on. The tours were varied and well planned, and all inclusive truly meant All Inclusive! Our third Uniworld cruise is being planned as I write this. Ships from other lines just don't compare.

Cabin Review

Suite with French Balcony
Cabin S 214
As nice as any 4/5 star hotel room I've stayed in. Fabric wall coverings, draperies, Full marble baths with double sinks and a large walk in shower. Plenty of closet and storage space. The suite was immaculate. Crystal decanters of vodka, scotch, gin and brandy were in the room upon arrival and were replenished as needed. If you wanted a particular brand, your wish was their command.
