Sail Date: Apr 2018
Cabin: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

Cruising on Uniworld Joi de Vivre was a pleasure almost beyond description. This small boat had an outstanding staff in every way. Open seating for the meals made dining a pleasure rather than the usual hassle of "cruise food". All inclusive really meant all inclusive. I had a 60.00 Euro bill when I checked out because of laundry and one extra excursion. (A great wine tasting). Our staff called us all by name after the first evening's dinner. The excursions were extremely well planned and all went off without a hitch. The highlight of the trip was the Beaches of Normandy. Our French guide provided an excellent narrative of the days events. Highly recommend this as a trip for everyone. Be prepared for a full schedule on the excursion days. Lots of walking, particularly Richard The Lion Hearts castle. That might not be for everyone. Versailles was also a great excursion but had a lot of steps, so also might not be great for people with mobility issues.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

Cabin 3

Cabin was very spacious. Bed was extremely comfortable and we had quite a large bathroom for a cruise ship. Cabin crew was outstanding and very attentive.
