There were plenty of positives about this trip. The tours and tour guides were excellent. The onboard cruise director was fun, enthusiastic and give us good information about up coming ports. We had a deluxe balcony suite. It was a little small but very nicely decorated. The bedding was soft and having a king bed on a ship is always a plus. The bathroom was nice size. Heated flood and heated towel ...

After a wonderful experience with Uniworld’s Burgundy and Provence cruise five years ago I was terribly disappointed in their performance this time around with the Classic Christmas Markets cruise. While I understand that inclement weather conditions are outside anyone’s control, Uniworld did a very poor job of contingency planning. We were provided information as to the status of our itinerary ...

Previously we sailed with Amawaterways in Bordeaux and Budapest to Amsterdam with Amadeus. This time we chose Uniworld for the Portugal cruise and Lisbon extension. Here are the issues we experienced: The Douro River is beautiful country side. Steep mountains with vineyards and olive groves stunning the rugged landscape. This is great for viewing from the ship, but any excursion required a ...

Long story short: ship, crew, excursions, food were all terrific. Had an amazing time and can't wait to go again. Specifically for those with celiac disease / gluten free diet (or I imagine any other food restriction): Chef Mario, Restaurant Manager Georgi and their staff were the highlight of this trip for me. Georgi appeared like magic to review the buffet or menu with me each meal and ...

This was our first river cruise. We have previously done ocean cruises with Princess, Silversea and Seabourn. Once you board the ship, you immediately notice how narrow the ship is. During the cruise you enter several narrow locks and gain a better appreciation for the fact that the ship is designed to fit within these locks with little room to spare !! The ship lobby is very well appointed ...

I was not fond of ocean cruises when I saw the river cruise ads I was intrigued! I am so pleased that I decided this was the adventure for me. If you are looking for a more intimate, peaceful and pampered experience this is the route for you. I cannot say enough about the onboard service. The food alone was worth the trip, like eating at a 4star restaurant 3 times a day!!!! Wine and spirits ...

Our suite was beautiful ! We had the royal suite. Our butlers were the best I have ever had. The crew was fun and so nice. However...... I was absolutely digusted by the food It was like eating in a cafeteria. Poor quality. My son got food poisoning and was ill for 5 days of the 7. No one cared or said sorry or looked into this. There were 7 other people who also had ...

Honestly, we chose this cruise because it fit our dates and we wanted to get to Normandy. That being said, we were extremely impressed with a Uniworld. The ship was extraordinary. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and well designed with every detail thought out completely. The one qualm I would mention about the ship is that it appears that they don’t really care about the top deck. We saw ...

I will start with the things I like and that was the ship. It was very nice and cabin was very comfortable. We had the deluxe french balcony. One closet that had draws below was useless because it hit the night stand and you could not open the draws. As usual the service was excellent. Now on to what I did not like. I thought the food was just OK. I never had a meal where I said that was ...
