Loved Fall on the Danube

S.S. Beatrice Cruise Review by lynettejenkins

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: Europe

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 middle of the boat 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.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Bus ride from Prague to Nuremberg was long with one stop at McDonalds. BUT our guide in Nuremberg was fun and cute and very, very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the City Market and the Castle Tour.


Enjoyed the small village fill of Regensburg. Had a fun day with a couple of tours, then a little free time. Prefer the small villages to the big cities.

Walking Tour

Loved the walking tour in Passau. This was my favorite port. We spent all day here and took the advise of our tour guide on our subsequent activites in Passau. We went across the road to the Castle on the Hill. The views were fantastic and so awesome when all the church bells were ringing. Bought a Cuckoo clock here. Can't wait for it to arrive!!!

Tour was fine, but there wasn't anything of interest to see in Vienna.

Highlights Tour

Not as much highlights as just a Parliment tour. The Parliment building is spectacular at night and great during the day. Would have enjoyed a few more stops.
