Cabin: Suite with Full Open-Air Balcony

Basel to Amsterdam…an area we had not explored…last time on Uniworld was 2008….much improved since then, the cabin was a suite on Princess deck 4**, while pricey we enjoyed all the little perks like the well stocked frig, snacks, loads of storage for a river boat plus the little balcony. Tho for the most part the weather was typical of that time of year, cloudy followed by rain and more cloudy…the windows in the balcony comes half way down….the lighting in the room was very dim…but all the little niceties like reading lights & TVS….food was a real bright spot much better then we had in the past…Buffett breakfast & lunch…rotating menus for plated dinner…

Wines very good most European wines from the areas. Bar service was great. Most the staff were men from Romania.

Not done well was the transfer into Amsterdam from a small town about 45 minutes from Amsterdam…bus was fine but we were not told in advance that we would not be docking in Amsterdam…so bus let us off near the train station with mobs of people and quite a hike with luggage to get in line for a taxi….should have had someone to assist the guests….we were on our own…

Cabin Review

Suite with Full Open-Air Balcony

love the pull out drawers in the bathroom to stow all your stuff, nice big shower. Cabin was spacious for a river boat, stocked bar with wine soft drinks, hard liquor, fresh fruit, snacks, candy, we had a butler but we only limited use…cabin attendant was super we went to breakfast and while eating she turned over our room…kept very clean…4** is on the same deck as the lounge which is comfortable always beverages and candy etc always available.

Nicely decorated with art on all the walls.
