  3. S.S. Beatrice
We chose UniWorld as it had been recommended to us by a friend and were interested in river cruising. We had only been ocean cruising before and were interested in the smaller, all inclusive value of a river cruise. We were not disappointed at all. Boat: It's nice, clean. We enjoyed the common area, the dining room and the sun deck up above. I will say that when everyone gets in the dining area or bar, it can get very noisy because of the low ceilings, but it wasn't really a problem or us. We had lovely weather and quite enjoyed the sun deck. Room: It was small - very small, but once again not problem. We did expect a small room and were already informed about the lack of a balcony. There is a floor to ceiling window that can be opened. There are often other boats docking with you, so the view can be into another boat, but probably more than half the time, we had a wonderful view of the Danube and it's beautiful scenery. Food: We loved the food. There were many options and everything we had was very good. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and had no issues with the times to eat or with finding a table for 4 at any of the dining times. Staff: The staff was outstanding. They all worked very hard to make our cruise wonderful. We enjoyed getting to know the cruise director and captain. Excursions: We only took excursions that were included in the price of our cruise. We didn't take the Master Class excursions. They were all good. Some were great - others just very good. Everyone in our group loved a different excursion to a different town as their favorite, so Uniworld did a good job at offering variety. We would definately take another Uniworld cruise.

Cabin Review

Cabin 318
Small , but clean and adequate. Coming from the US, we asked for a top sheet on our bed instead of just the comforter as the comforter was just too hot for us. It was no problem and our attendant made up our bed with a top sheet each day. Bathroom is small.
