  3. River Countess
This is our 5th river cruise and Uniworld by far exceeded all expectations. All inclusive gratuities, drinks, choice of daily excursions were all contributing factors for choosing Uniworld. With many other cruise lines you are constantly being nickled and dimed with every step. Not so with Uniworld. Their local guides were extremley knowledgeable,friendly and made the daily excursions so much more interesting. Chiara in Milan just made our day with her upbeat personality. Susan, on our Venice excursions was extremely knowledgeable and her detailed descriptions of the Venetian artwork and landmarks were the best we have ever encountered. The staff on the ship were all personable and did everything they could to meet the customer expectations. The evening meals were first class and a large variety of options for lunch, including a pizza bar in the top deck lounge. We are seriously considering doing this trip again in the near future.

The itinerary was perfect

Cabin Review

Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin 1 415
The cabin was on the small side compared with other river cruise ships. However the was ample room and the french balcony added a feel of more space. The bathroom had plenty of room and the shower was larger than others we have been on.
The cabin rating would have been higher but for some stains on the rug in the stateroom.
