Best Cruise We Have Taken
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Regarding the excursions, the local guides were almost always excellent, and the QuietVox system allowed everyone to hear the entire presentation. On some of the city tours, after we tired of regimentation and buses, we were able to break away and find our way back to the ship on our own. This was especially easy in Vienna especially, where the Metro line can take you within a 10-minute walk to the ship.
The Prague extension was enjoyable as well. Getting there was easy because a bus picked us up at the ship and took us to Prague, and Uniworld's guide Jana in Prague was exceptional. She offered a private optional tour of the theatre where Mozart first performed Figaro, conducted by the 85-year-old former symphony conductor, as well as a tour of the beautiful second floor of the Municipal Building. Her included tour of Prague Castle was very well done, and she took very good care of the Uniworld group throughout the stay, including handling everyone's airport transfers.
All in all, this was a great trip, and we will definitely use Uniworld in the future. Less
Cabin review: S406 Suite with French Balcony
The suite was luxurious, with lots of room to move around as well as plenty of storage and a nice size bathroom. The only thing I missed was a real balcony. French balconies only allow you to open the window and not fall out. Would rather have a balcony with chairs where we could sit and watch the countryside go by.Read All Suite with French Balcony (S) Reviews >>
