This was my third river cruise with Uniworld. This trip, I chose the SS Catherine. I have been on the SS Antioinette down the Rhine and the River Princess down the Danube. I enjoyed all three trips and highly recommend them to my friends. I found the crew on the SS Catherine was exceptional, including the waiters in the dining room. The activities were well planned and each stop along the excurison was something of interest. I enjoyed the Chateau and the wonderful lunch and wine tasting with the Count. The guide in Viviers was exceptional and we got to see the inside of her home and how the French lived. If you wanted physical activity you could use the ships exercise room or swimming in the ship's pool, go bike riding or kayaking or hiking in the terraced grape fields. The cabins are a luxury and always kept clean by your individual housekeeper. The food was exceptional. If it was not on the menu, you only had to ask and it appeared and if you liked it, they would bring you as many servings as you liked. My friend had gone on a big ocean liner cruise to Alaska last year and had a bill for over $400 for drinks only. She could not believe that all the wines and soft drinks she had on this Uniworld trip was no charge. After drinking both red and white wines at dinner, we would sip Bally's/Kaula while listening to the piano and singer entertain us in the lounge after stuffing ourselves at dinner. The menu was different each night and you were not restricted to one choice. I also liked the laundry room which allowed the passengers to do their laundry at their leisure. The ship provided all the equipment, including washer/dryer/iron and soap. Although I love coming home after a long trip, it was difficult to have to make my own bed, cook my own food and no one to wait on me hand and foot! Read Less

Having sailed w Uniworld from Paris to Normandy last October, we wanted to sail more. When Costco chartered a whole boat for a wine and food cruise of the Rhone, we jumped at the offer along w another couple and my wife's sister. The 5 of us enjoyed he cruise beyond our expectations. The tours were exceptional: wonderfully delivered by local guides (in English)across a spectrum of interests from a cooking demo, to exquisite wine, truffle and olive experiences. We were even entertained in a local home by its owner! On board service was excellent: friendly, efficient, always helpful. The food was delicious, and they accommodated my wife's celiac/vegetarian diet so that she never got sick. Of course we drank too much wine, but it is sans sulfites so no headaches. Be wary of high water during May-June cruises, we had a minor disruption when the boat could not sail the Soane River because of high water and low bridges. Nevertheless, a bus took us to Beaune on market day, which u don't want to miss! The parsley pressed ham and coq a vin' lunch at the local restaurant was to die for, period. Lyon is every bit as lovely as Paris; when I return to France, I plan to stay there awhile and study the French Resistance while my wife attends the Paul Beaucouse Institute. The silk also trade remains strong, like has been B.C. I'd like to come for some festivals too, but the market alone is reason enough. Many thanks to Uniworld and its professional crew for a memorable French experience!!! Read Less

Extremely impressed with the feeling that Uniworld wants to provide you with personal attention. Excursions included points of interest as well as experiences that other cruise lines don't offer...visits to local shops, homes and even an olive farm that has been in one family for 10 generations. Staff from housekeeping, wait staff to tour guides helpful and attentive to your personal needs. The all inclusive pricing is a great value. On one excursion, Uniworld provided each person 20 euros for lunch on your on. Uniworld provided each traveler a reusable water bottle instead of plastic ones for use on excursions. Will definitely travel Uniworld again. Read Less

A wonderful cruise aboard S S Catherine. From embarkation to disembarkation everything went like clockwork. The excursions were varied and always interesting - our guides were excellent and the groups were kept small in numbers. Our cabin was spacious - Category 2 Cabin 316 - a large bathroom - a large window to the outside world with enough space for the two of us to sit and read. It had easy access to the reception area and the dining room - no steps or lift needed and it was kept immaculate every day by our maid. The food was a highlight - fresh every day - dinner always had a local touch and the drinks choices were varied. We would definitely use Uniworld again- they certainly ticked all the boxes for us and did everything right for us Read Less

This was my second Uniworld cruise and it was as perfect as the last. The ship was beautiful, the food was great and the staff was professional and attentive. The excursions were well planned and all of the guides were both knowledgeable and professional. After I climbed the many steep and winding stairs to the top of the castle of the Duke of Anjou in Tarascon and then down again my knee was officially wrecked. But Uniworld has a program called "gentile walking" tours and for that I was grateful. In essence they are slower and avoids steep stair cases. When some attraction has to be eliminated, due to its strenuous nature (steep stairs) another is added to complete the experience. I rather preferred it, the groups were smaller and the guides very attentive to our needs. We opted for the extension to Paris at the end of our cruise. An Uniworld agent escorted us to the train station and remained with us until we arrived and were situated at the hotel in Paris where another Uniworld rep/guide took over. Now she was amazing. One of the most adorable, conscientious, attentive person's I have ever met. Whatever you asked she tired to make it happen. In all a wonderful trip. I am already planning another Uniworld cruise for next year. I also liked that there was no "nickel and diming" everything was included even all tips, water bottles and liquor on the ship.   Read Less
