  3. Joie de Vivre
I was wanting to experience the feeling of travelling France with the feeling's of being surrounded by France. Friends and clients have traveled with Uniworld before and when people described what it was like there was not 1 specific thing that any of them could put their finger on. Now I know why! Nothing was ever left to chance the ship was a total joy to travel on, every detail was just perfection. The staff were so attentive that it was like travelling with your best friends yet they were there for anything that you needed. The food was hands down some of the best I have ever had the joy of having, so much so when a meal was requested the head chef would check in with you. My travelling companion want to know how a soup was made (it was to die for), the next day there was a copy of the recipe on the bed! We thought that was just spectacular. Every single member of staff right down to the engineers had time to say hello and talk about their history and what they were up to. The journey itself was spectacular - with some highlights of playing gold @ Eterate (on the cliffs of Normandy), bike riding in Paris and visiting Omaha Beach to pay tribute to the fallen. Uniworld you have meet and exceeded my expectations we will see you again very soon. Thank you

Cabin Review

Cabin 417
On entering you cabin you are greeted with beautifully appointed timber and fabrics. The beds were so comfortable with a pillow menu as well. The bathrooms were marble with a rain shower, seat and movable shower head. The windows and blinds are electric and effortless, the 2nd days we were on the ship they were steaming the drapes to keep them looking perfect.
