We have sailed with Uniworld 8 times in the past, 6 times in Europe plus once each in China and Egypt.
We embarked in Budapest which we'd visited before so didn't spend any extra time before the cruise started. Uniworld picked us up at the airport and delivered us to the ship with no hitches whatsoever.
As usual, the food was excellent and Dimitar, the restaurant manager was the best we've had in Europe. He was personable and interacted with diners well while keeping an eye on the level of service. When serving staff were pressed, he pitched in serving beverages and assisting to keep service flowing smoothly. Danny the Hotel Manager was also very helpful when anything needed attention. As in the past, all of the staff were a delight working hard to keep everyone happy. Uniworld has the best soups at lunch in my opinion.
We were on the bottom level of the ship near the laundry room and the fitness center. Great for my husband who works out regularly. I on the other hand was up on the sun deck early enjoying bird watching. The rooms on this level are the same size as the ones on higher decks but have only a narrow high window. Since the room is so small and there isn't much room to move around, we spent most of our time on the sun deck or in the lounge when wanting a view.
