This was our first river cruise and we worried it would be too small and slow for us. And it was.
We're very active, independent, well-traveled cruisers. We chose Uniworld based on its ratings and claims, and because we liked this itinerary plus the all-inclusive package. While we had some lovely experiences, saw some darling towns and met some special people (most from Down Under), we were disappointed by too much.
--Our category 2 room was appallingly small. The kind where two people cannot pass at the same time and one person could get hurt in the bathroom.
Nice but appallingly small.
A curator from the Van Gogh (pronounce it Van GAWK) museum came on board to give us an introduction. Then we got into the museum about 30 minutes before regular hours, which was just lovely. Next was a short canal cruise, which dropped us off at our dock by our boat.
Lovely town at the merger of three rivers. View from the fortress is wonderful.
Bus ride was about 90 minutes to Heidelberg Castle on a very hot day. Lovely ruins with interesting architecture and shapes and views. The tour guide gave excruciating details, and was aghast when two of us decided to walk down to town. It only took about 15 minutes.
