We have river cruised on Tauck, Scenic, Vantage and Viking…..Uniworld is the worst! Poor and inconvenient docking spots (in an industrial dump one night), poor, non-regional food and wine, poor to no entertainment, poor guides and programs but VERY GREAT STAFF.!!
We expected wonderful local food and wines from the Moselle and Rhine region……no…..wines from S Africa, etc and food from some preprepared central place in Europe….no wonderful German pastries, etc.
Because docking spots were poor, there was no opportunity to just wander in and out of towns. A poor tour example was Strasbourg where the guide left us outside the cathedral…….inside we saw both Viking and Tauck groups with guides. The best entertainment was the bartender’s introduction to the nightly wines.
