Another excellent Uniworld cruise

Review for S.S. Bon Voyage to Africa

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We had previously traveled with Uniworld from Budapest to Amsterdam and loved the service. We booked this years ago, but wound up like so many others delayed to 2022. The voyage met or exceeded all of our expectations. The service and warmth of the crew were evident from the moment we boarded. The food as always was excellent, and the level of service and responsiveness from the dining and bar ...

Incredible history along the Nile

This river cruise along the Nile is amazing, with excursions visiting sites over 4000 years old. This is an area with tremendous history. While there may be other companies doing Nile River cruises, Viking is special in that they make a great effort to know every guest, and to accommodate their needs. There is nothing in this review about COVID because the policies are changing ...

A Relaxing Way to see Ancient Egypt

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Having been to Egypt previously 27 years ago, we always said that we wanted to go back. Such a mystical, magical place! Having been a frequent Viking customer, and loving the smaller boat size, we were excited to see that Viking had a small ship, the Ra, and a perfect itinerary for us. The accommodations were totally up to the Viking standards, and the crew was well trained and smiling as ...

We chose Aqua Expeditions based on feedback from friends and we are so glad we did. The entire experience exceeded all of our expectations. The crew didn't just meet our needs, they anticipated them and fulfilled them before we knew we wanted them. Every detail was carefully considered and perfectly executed. The naturalists were so knowledgeable and truly love the region and want ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We selected this cruise based upon the recommendation of a friend and travel agent. Initially, we had planned to take a Scenic cruise on the Danube river in 2020. However, the pandemic postponed the trip and we opted to choose a cruise in primarily one country as opposed to four. It was an excellent choice. First of all, our first night stay at the five star hotel in Porto was excellent. All ...

Review for Spirit of the Rhine to Africa

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Where to begin? The places we went to and the flowers and gardens were excellent, including our external speakers. The ship was good, rooms very small, but very badly let down by the staff both in the Saga office pre departure, and then on the ship itself. Total disorganisation from the staff running the cruise program, itinerary changed with no explanation as to why, lots of hanging around ...

Fantastic Nile River Cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

My wife and I love to explore locations we’ve never visited before and the Egyptian Nile was at the top of our list. Viking made our visit to Egypt and the trip down the Nile one of the best vacations we ever had. The ship staff were ALL very friendly and professional. The meals on board were excellent and the guided tours top-notch!! Both tour guides had degrees in Egyptology and made all tours ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

I'd done a lot about early Egyptian history at university and had for a long time wanted to see the ancient monuments for myself. The Viking Ra itinerary was just what I needed to do that, while combining that with a relaxing cruise along the Nile. We first stayed in Cairo for a couple of nights. The hotel was great and we saw eg the Tutankhamun exhibition in the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities ...

Till then the holiday in Cairo the hotel and the trips out to ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 30s

For our first foray back into cruising my DH and I chose a Tauck Rhône cruise “Savoring France” beginning with 2 nights in the Intercontinental Paris Opera. We began our Paris visit at a different hotel with 6 nights at The Peninsula so it was a nice touch at the beginning when Tauck still provided a transfer from CDG to that hotel. We were on our own to take an Uber over to the Tauck hotel but ...
