  • Sail Date: Sep 2018
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Suite with Full Open-Air Balcony

This was our third Uniworld Cruise and we can’t imagine using another river cruise line.

The ship is beautiful and modern. Our suite even had tvs in the mirrors in the bedroom and bathroom. Our suite was 300 square feet of luxury with fabric covered walls and drapes.

There was lots of closet space and the king bed faced the river, unlike many other ships.

We had an open bar in crystal decanters as well as a fully stocked fridge with juices, water and mixers all replenished daily.

Our butler, Tibor greeted us in our room and took care of every request, right down to the brands of alcohol we requested. He anticipated many before we ever even asked. Our room attendant, Peter was always prompt attentive and pleasant.

The food on board was wonderful with so many selections it was hard to choose. Our main waiter, Miguel was a dream...friendly, attentive, funny and fluent in English, as was the entire crew. At dinner, if you can’t choose between two entrees, Miguel would just bring both, no problem. The menu also had selections for those with dietary requirements. Nothing was ever a problem. The somolier, Laura was knowledgeable and attentive and had recommendations for us every evening.

The bar was open and bright and Frederico and Fredrica were ever present, quickly learning our preferences and bringing them almostvas soon as we sat down. Want a particular brand?? No problem, just ask.

There were so many wonderful staffers..Nedko, Sandu, Richard, and too may others to name, but everyone working onboard always had a smile and a desire to please. From the chef to the spa attendant, these people were on a quest to make us happy.

I don’t want to knock other cruiselines, but for river cruises, we’ll never look elsewhere.
