We chose Uniworld after being told by the travel agent and the Uniworld rep. that the trip that they offer would meet our "bucket list" vacation as well as our anniversary. We were told that the ships, service, excursions, etc. were first rate and all of our dreams would be fulfilled. They took our deposit in March 2017 and the $15000 trip for my wife and me was paid by June 2018. When we arrived in Budapest in October, we were told by the Uniworld rep that the water levels were low and that we would need to change ships the 2nd day. We would again change ships another time during the vacation. We found out from the captains of 2 ships that the problems were going on for over 5 weeks. Yet, we heard nothing from the Company or our travel agent prior to the trip. In fact, another passenger had an email from a rep at Uniworld 2 weeks before the trip stating there was no issues on any of the rivers. In addition, the CEO of Uniworld sent a note to all passengers the 2nd week offering 200 dollars to use on the ship and 1500 credit for a trip taken in 2019. For your information, there is a limited area for all passengers to purchase anything. We bought an overpriced swiss army knife and woman's watch. It is doubtful we or any of the passengers we spoke with will use the cruise credit. We ended up taking bus tours more than cruising. We had itineraries change. Missed at least 4 of the ports we were supposed to see. Excursions were cut short. Oftentimes, the guides weren't aware we were coming. Excuses became the norm. Nobody from Uniworld corporate came. Even after returning and writing the CEO, Ellen Bettridge, we received a canned response a month after the letter was sent. The Company took the "low road" in not meeting our expectations and not alerting us of the water issues. They could have told us. Their reps could have alerted us, but they didn't. Says a lot about the Company. Read Less

We took the Uniworld European Jewels cruise between October 19 and November 3 from Budapest to Amsterdam. Due to low river levels, we spent far too much time on a bus, missed excursions and had to transfer to three different ships. The core of our complaint is that Uniworld was aware of this issue all summer and did not give us the opportunity to decide for ourselves whether we wished to proceed or postpone. We had purchased expensive trip insurance for just such an eventuality. However, Uniworld only notified us late the day before we were scheduled to depart for Budapest, effectively taking the decision away from us and forcing us into a highly substandard experience of tremendously less value. As far as the onboard experience goes, it was generally quite wonderful. Personnel on all three ships worked hard to make the best of a bad situation. The Captain on the River Empress (second ship) demonstrated truly outstanding leadership skills. He led the crew in a way that made them want to perform well. He also took full responsibility and did a good job managing customer complaints associated with using tour buses versus sailing. Also, the laundry service was well done and prompt. Bar service was friendly and always available, which helped soothe nerves of frustrated passengers. One exception to the positive feedback concerning onboard experiences was that food quality was less than we had experienced on two previous Uniworld cruises. Especially early during the cruise, there were far too many buffet style meals. During a mid-cruise survey, I commented that the chef was strangely absent. On previous Uniworld cruises, the chef was the star of the show. The day after I submitted my comment, the chef began to appear in the dining room. Again, this speaks to the leadership qualities of Captian Ferdy on the River Empress. Read Less

This was our first river cruise and we worried it would be too small and slow for us. And it was. We're very active, independent, well-traveled cruisers. We chose Uniworld based on its ratings and claims, and because we liked this itinerary plus the all-inclusive package. While we had some lovely experiences, saw some darling towns and met some special people (most from Down Under), we were disappointed by too much. --Our category 2 room was appallingly small. The kind where two people cannot pass at the same time and one person could get hurt in the bathroom. --We thought we would just pull up into nice towns and walk, but that happened only in Amsterdam, Rudesheim, Scheinfurt and Regensburg. Presumably we would have docked in Budapest (see below!). --Five days into the 16 day voyage, we were informed the sun deck would be closed from Wertheim to Passau due to low bridges: that’s 8 days, half the journey! Since we did not have a balcony, that deck is the only place to enjoy the outdoors on board. I learned near the end you could actually go up there when the barricade was down. But that was not communicated. This is important info I wish I knew before I signed up. --The food was was good but not great. The menu appeared to be spa-focused--healthy with smaller portions. That's a great premise and some of it was tasty. But more options would have been preferred, especially for dinner. (Really nice breakfast buffets). -- Passengers tend to be more sedentary so there were less options for the more active. In response, Peter the fitness director took a small group out a couple of times including biking. The boat's bikes were OK and easy to check out and use. --Finally, the communication was haphazard, relying on a debriefing each night before dinner by Agnes the cruise director. When things changed, we did not know and received contradictory info. The biggest disappointment was going through the Middle Rhine, one of the highlights with its castles along the banks. We were told to go to the sun deck at 8 a.m. but around 7:25, we saw castles passing by our room and realized we had already missed at least 10 km of the gorge. One day I was ready to go out for a walk before someone caught me to explain that plans had changed and we were in a different port and would be departing soon. I might have been stranded! I suggested Agnes simply put a notice at the central reception area with any major changes. She said she wasn't allowed to. On the plus side, Todol, the head of the dining room, was terrific and wrangled diet 7-up for me after I asked. There is self-service laundry for free (and for a fee), and a nice self-serve coffee machine down the hall (though it was busted for 3 days). Excursions were mostly good (whisper headsets were provided in your rooms). Some repeat travelers love Uniworld and felt very pampered. The Danube was so low (no major rains since April) we became stuck (something you never think about!) and could not finish out the cruise. We ended up bussed to two hotel nights in Vienna and one in Budapest, which were lovely and obviously an unexpected expense for Uniworld. That was a happy ending for us. Read Less

My husband and I chose this as a vacation in honor of our 35th anniversary. It did not disappoint! This was our first experience with river cruising. We were boarding in Amsterdam and arranged three days of our own visit to Amsterdam prior to arriving at the ship. (This was not a Uniworld "extension," just our own trip.) Uniworld lived up to its reviews and reputation and gave us a great time. We had been on ocean cruises before, but due to the small size of ship and crew and just 109 guests this week, river cruising was a more relaxed experience. Guests got to know each other and made friends, which made all activities and meals very pleasant. Every time there was getting on or off the ship for any reason, it was fast and simple. A benefit of river cruising is that there is never any tendering. You step straight off the ship. It never took more than 15 minutes from announced boarding time to sailing time each afternoon or evening. Cruise Manager Tomas was an outstanding personality in his role of keeping everything organized and keeping guests informed of each day's activities. The food on board ship was very good and the dining room staff were always attentive and eager to ensure an enjoyable experience. I have lactose intolerance and the staff worked very hard to make sure my needs were covered. Dining room design (on both ships) was adequate at dinner, when diners were seated. However, space for the breakfast and lunch buffets, when people needed to move around, was too tight. My husband felt that large, noisy groups got more attention from the wait staff. Since we were usually just two of us at the table, we waited a long time for some of the basic services (e.g., refilling water or wine glasses). The daily excursions were very worthwhile and there were always choices. Most of the tour guides were outstanding, especially in the northern and central stops in Germany. The excursions included lots of walking and biking and that had to be our exercise for the trip. The fitness facilities on board are tiny and there is no pool. There is theoretically a place to walk on the top deck, but for about a week of our trip the top deck was closed due to many low bridges and other technical issues. We used and paid for the ship's laundry service and this was worth the fees, which seemed reasonable give experience with other cruise lines. I don't think anyone should have to spend vacation time doing laundry! As we learned, returning guests to Uniworld get free laundry services on their cruise. The "regular" onboard entertainer was not exciting, but the visiting musicians gave great concerts. My favorite was the oompah band in Regensberg, Germany. They were as good as any professional band or orchestra to be found anywhere. The bends in the river in the title of this review had mostly to do with low water problems on the Danube. Although we expected to board the River Princess, it was stuck in Austria due to a low water point and could not sail to Amsterdam. As a result, we boarded the River Duchess (a virtually identical ship) and sailed on the Duchess for most of our cruise. Only the last three days were we able to sail on the Princess. Uniworld did a nearly seamless job in transferring us between the ships (made easier due to the identical layout and stateroom availability). There were small changes in the itinerary on the day before and the day of the actual transfer, and a few passengers grumbled, but it was a reasonable facilitation of the switch and we still had multiple excursions even if not the initially expected ones. Our only struggle with setting up our trip was booking our airline tickets. These are handled through a contractor. We had a great amount of difficulty getting seat assignments and ordering special meals -- on line, on the phone, and at airports. (These would have been very east to do if we had been booking our own tickets.) Uniworld was unable to help with any of this, but apologized and offered an onboard credit of $50 US for each of us in exchange for our trouble. This was certainly appreciated, but Uniworld should look at the kind of service that its guests are getting in working with airline plans. Note that if you want to arrive or depart on dates not in line with your cruise schedule (we arrived early), you pay a fee for each passenger. Read Less

We were first time river cruisers (2 Caribbean cruises), and we read Cruise Critic website for help. So, we wanted to put down any notes or tips for the next reader. As we did not know the river cruise market at all, we went to through our trusted, neighborhood Costco with its guaranteed service. We picked this cruise mainly because it grabbed two USA holidays (New Years and Christmas), and covered some ground (three countries, Germany, Austria, and Hungary). Booking with Costco was fairly easy and required several phone calls, a few e-mails and two FAXs, but that was about it. There was no mystery to the process. The pre-cruise package did not arrive within the 21 to 30 days before the cruise, so we had to call and have it FedExed to us. However, this was not a big deal - there is no work involved with the pre-cruise package – it is just your cruise ticket, luggage tags, your cruise ID Scantron cards, and itinerary book. We read the Cruise Companion PDF on the Uniworld website, and it covered almost everything. We also did our flights through Uniworld, paid the small fee booking fee to do it through Costco (25$ x 2), and had them book the flights on the days we picked. Uniworld’s airfares could not be beat. Overall, Costco was a very good way to book; they did everything they said they would. It should be noted that the free transfers Uniworld offers are only to and from the airport, only, on the cruise embarkation and disembarkation days, only. So, if you come in early, or by train, or not coming or going to the airport, then the free transfer does not apply, so budget for a taxi ride. We came in early because we were flying to Europe through the NE USA in the winter, and our taxi ride from the Grand Hotel in Nuremberg to boat was about 20 Euro. Some people did make the boat, but some of their luggage did not arrive for several days. This did not happen to us, but we prepared for losing a checked bag by “co-packing” (put one half of each other’s clothing and toiletries into each checked bag, that way, if you lose one bag, you still each have 50% of your clothes). Internet access onboard was great, as we were all given Vodaphones with a 300 mg limit, which we carried with us in our pocket at all times. So, we simply logged onto the Vodaphone via WIFI on our Smart phone, and we were our own Internet “hotspot” wherever we went, onboard, or off on excursions. Now, we did not stream movies, but with the 300 MG limit we had free real time map and search capabilities, which was useful. Do not forget to get the international dialing plan for your smart phone (10$ a day for us). We just had to remember to keep the Vodaphone unit charged. Before we left we also downloaded WHATS APP on our Smartphone which allowed us to text and send images, in real time, for free, to family in the USA. Everyone on the boat had WHATS APP. The Internet on the two computers in the ship’s lobby also worked fine when in port. The only time the boat did not have cell phone coverage was when we cruising through a few rural areas in Hungary. The purser onboard can change dollars to Euros, and provide Euros in small change. The purser does not provide Hungarian Florints. You can change dollars or Euros to Hungarian Florints easily around Budapest. Many places will accept Euros in Budapest/Hungary, but the exchange rate they give you will not be good and can add 10% or more to the price. It is better to get Hungarian Florints, or use your credit card, IF you do not have foreign transaction fee on the credit card, in Hungary. And, remember, many restaurants in Germany, Austria, and Hungary added a 12% gratuity at the bottom of the bill, so ask /check your bill; 10 to 12% is the max tip we found in the countries we visited. There were 2 washers and 2 dryers onboard which were free. You just ask the front desk concierge for detergent pods. This was useful, as the cruise was a longer one. Just do not wait to the last day onboard to do all your laundry. If you sometimes take non-prescription, cold medicine or decongestants or antacids or Tylenol, bring some along with you. They have a very different concept of “over the counter” in Germany. We thought the Uniworld cruise was impressive. While the ship was not one of Uniworlds newer “super-ships,” the ship and our room were kept spot-less, and bottled water and chocolate supplies were kept filled. The room was cleaned and the bed made every day and freshened throughout the day. Every night while we are at dinner, they placed a print-out of the next day’s itinerary on your bed with a little present of some sort. The itinerary was also available on the in room TV, which also showed your shipboard account balance, a variety of channels, and had some free movies. If you want ice in your room, ask the steward for an ice bucket, and they will keep one full of ice in your cabin. They tended to keep the general areas of the ship quite warm, so bring a short sleeve shirt, even if it is winter. Our stateroom had individual AC which worked very well and allowed us to cool the room off. The room also had an alarm clock with and Ipod player dock, so we could play our Ipod at all times. As far as adapters, there was one US plug in the bathroom and one US plug in bedroom which accepted US plugs for phone charging / laptops. They also provided a hair dryer in the stateroom. The bathroom was only big enough for one person, but we knew that going in. Exclusive events were very exclusive, and in all but one case, limited to the ship’s 108 passengers (the ship was not at its full capacity of 130). Some events required a sign up. Only two events required an additional fee, the Nuremberg historic tour (49 Euros each) and the New Years’ Day concert in Lichenstein Palace in Vienna (149 Euros each), and both were really amazing and well worth the fee. All of the tour guides spoke good English. It was also nice not to have to worry about tipping guides or crew, as it is all included with Uniworld, so no fumbling for money as you exit a bus. If you want a massage onboard, sign up fast – people know when the boat is cruising, and they quickly book the masseuse up for the whole day. We did not do one. Every evening they placed two copies of the next day’s itinerary on the stateroom bed. You could also pullup the itinerary on the TV in the stateroom. The food onboard was very good. The Uniworld cruise line hails from the luxury, Red Carnation Hotels, and many of their longstanding recipes are by its founder Bea Tollman and are quite good. You can find Bea Tollmans cookbook in the ships gift store. Breakfasts were buffet style with local sausage, bacon, eggs, French toast, omelet station, and baked beans (for the Brits and Australians). You could ask them to make a Spanish omelet or eggs Benedict, and they would whip one out. Lunch was also buffet style, and not to be missed. Lunch always had a blend of familiar dishes for each group onboard, and also dishes very local to the area were you were cruising. We tried a nibble of each of the local dishes, and all were interesting. Food quality was quite good – the crispy skin suckling pig, the veal Wiener schnitzel, and several soups were very excellent at lunch. Lunch also had a full salad bar, and the dishes did not repeat. Twice, we did lunch ashore when touring (Stiftskeller St. Peter in Salzburg, the oldest restaurant in Europe; and Restaurant Anton in Passau) and both were excellent. We also snacked at the local holiday markets during day trips. Dinner was sit down, with a set menu of two choices each of fresh bread, appetizer, entrée, and dessert, and very good full service from the wait-staff. The dinner menus were very good. There was always a stand-out dish. The wines which were poured each night at dinner were always from the region which the boat was traversing. Other options (steak and vegetarian and gluten free) were also always available at dinner. During the cocktail hour before dinner, the bartender in the lounge would provide a briefing on the wines to be served at dinner. As the place settings at dinner had white wine glasses, red wine glasses, and champagne glasses, we would have all three poured so we could experiment and try them all. You could also buy champagne or any wine while off the boat and they would pour it for you at dinner, free of charge. Dinner service by the wait staff was very good /crisp. In addition, the ship had room service, which we only used once. The bar was at the front of the ship and provided excellent views while cruising. We also received a daily briefing on the events of the next day during the cocktail hour before dinner. Premium liquors such as Makers Mark, two types of Calvados, and very good whiskey were included and served at no extra cost. The bar does have one copy of a liquor menu – it sits on the corner of the bar. A full time piano player who knew 2,000 songs (American, British, Australian, German, etc.) sat at a full size piano in the bar. On several occasions local musicians came onboard to play folk music which was specific to the region in which we were cruising. The guests onboard were primarily composed of Australians, Brits, Canadians, Americans (FL, SC, CA, PA, and TX), and New Zealanders. There was a wide range of ages, and it was certainly not, all retired, “older” people. We are in our 40s, and we were not the youngest passengers. There were full families onboard (but no little kids). They had tours for the super active (bike riding or a hike to the castle) to middle active (full morning walking tour) to less active (same sites were covered but the walking distances were more direct and short). Our boat had three Mercedes buses which followed along the river, and when we needed transport we would hop on a bus. Since it was your dedicated bus, you could leave things like jackets and umbrellas on the bus, which was quite convenient. The ride onboard was so smooth we had to look out the window to see if we were moving. Our stateroom walls were plushly covered with fabric, which made the cabin very, very quiet. The river also cooperated, and we had excellent water levels and all locks, which we tended to go through at night, appeared to work fine. The cruise had an excellent holiday feel. There were decorations and carols. The Captain even brought his family onboard for the holiday cruise. The Christmas markets were fun, and while we were worried we might miss them because we were there on holiday days, we did not need to worry. After Christmas, many of the Christmas markets then became New Years’ markets and were open for many days. Overall, retail remains very strong in all the cities we visited, so there were ample shopping opportunities. Overall, the cruise was a trip of a lifetime. Read Less

This being our first River Cruise, we were unsure of what to expect, however all fears were put aside from the first moment we were met by our Uniworld Representative at Budapest airport.The welcome was professional and warm and we were soon on our way to the dock in a luxurious vehicle. The Reception on board The River Princess was just as welcoming and we were invited to enjoy a lunch while our Room was being prepared. We were greatly impressed by the River Princess's Décor. Our experience on the two week European Jewels Cruise was one of wonder and enchantment. The variety of high quality, intimate shore excursions along with the professionalism of our guides was something we hadn't experienced before. Heidicha, our energetic Cruise Director was entertaining, funny and always ready to assist when necessary. The service supplied by all staff was amazingly caring. We enjoyed our nights listening to the River Princess Cocktail Musician and Guest Entertainers. The Dining Room Food selection and quality was 6 star. Not forgetting the 1st Class wine selection chosen from the various localities we travelled through. Hopefully it won't be too long before we enjoy another Uniworld Cruise Read Less

This cruise was recommended by my travel consultant. Met all my expectations. What stood out was the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff, always with a smile on their faces and nothing was too much trouble. I had a bit of a medical problem while on board and they went to no end of trouble to help me get it sorted out. There was a good choice of outings in each port, all included in the cost of the trip. There were a few special trips that you could pay extra to go on. Didn't really need to do these as the free ones were all excellent and catered for different fitness levels. Food was excellent - plenty of variety and well-presented. Drinks and coffee were always available at no extra charge. I enjoyed going to the Piano Bar each evening for the entertainment. Csabo (?) provided good music - easy to listen to and he would play requests when asked. Great trip and I would recommend to anyone. Intend going on another of your cruises in the future. Read Less

Always wanted to cruise the Rhine river and now have achieved it. The management of the restaurant, tours and ship was outstanding leaving us to enjoy our holiday stress free. The tour guides utilised by Uniworld were excellent, they all knew their subject very well and presented the knowledge to us at a good level so that all understood. After each tour we were given time to explore the town by ourselves but with having had a tour earlier finding our way around was easy. I particularly enjoyed the fitness classes in the morning each one varied and just long enough. The restaurant and bar staff went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our meals and time in the piano bar. Evening entertainment was very good, the pianist/vocalist entertained us with a wide variety of songs. Our stateroom was kept emasculate at all times and we enjoyed the little surprise each night when we returned to our cabin. All in all an outstanding job well done. Read Less

This was our first river cruise and we had never heard of UniWorld prior to our travel agent recommending them. Well I have to say, this company was fantastic, great food, wonderful crew who couldn't do enough to help and assist. One of the guest fell ill during the cruise, the captain arranged a taxi, went with the couple to the hospital, translated for them and waited with them until they could return to the boat, this was amazing service. We were not just guest, we felt like family, up there as one of our best holidays and we have had a few. All drinks were included in the price and there was no shortage of them, shore excursions were well planned with no issues and our entertainer engaged with us in a happy and friendly manner. We made a number of friends during this trip and hope to keep in contact with them in the future. My husband and I would defintely do another Uniworld trip. Read Less

After researching potential cruise companies for my first ever river cruise in Europe, I decided on Uniworld with its consistent annual award-winning history. I wanted a trip that covered all expenses, including accommodation, food, beverage, tours/excursions with options for the less physically able - I use a walking stick - and gratuities, as once I stepped on board, I wanted to be carefree and to simply enjoy myself. Though my luxurious cabin and ensuite were compact, the bed was super comfortable, and there was abundant closet space with, surprisingly, plenty of clothes hangers :) As the French Balcony door slid open, I could enjoy fresh air, sunshine and constantly changing view from my cabin without heading up to the sun deck. Everything on this floating hotel was 5 star - the friendly yet professional staff bent over backwards to meet our needs - no request was too difficult; chef and his team cooked and baked everything onboard; and the ship was spotless. Cudos to the heads of departments who pulled their staff together into a wonderful team on the River Princess. Cudos to the staff as they helped each other out, even across departments, and radiated boundless and positive energy everyday, despite working hard for extremely long hours. We feasted shamelessly on full buffet breakfasts and lunches and a la carte dinners, and if you had room for fruit and desserts, they too were in plentiful supply. I do believe the majority of us were glad we brought loose comfortable clothes to accommodate expanding waistlines. As we stopped at a different town every day, food and wines from that particular region were featured on the menu for that day. Afternoon tea was available for those who still had an appetite between our main meals and the lolly counter was open 24 hours a day, and home-made cookies beside the self-catering hot drink machine on the patio. Cocktail hour tempted us with more exciting refreshments to try while we relaxed and chatted with soft gentle music played by the resident musician. After dinner, most of us would head to back to the Piano Lounge for more chin-wagging and themed nightly music you could along and dance to, if you had energy left after the day's excursions. Every evening before dinner, our cruise manager would go over what tours and excursion would be on offer the next day. This would be followed up with a printed schedule provided with a surprise of the day when our beds were turned down that evening. If you're active, there were walking and cycling tours you could go on, while the rest of us either took the day and/or afternoon city tours and other options on offer, or chose to while away the time to sit or stretch out on the sun deck. As always, plentiful liquid refreshments found their way up to quench our thirst.. As one who chose the 15 day Budapest to Amsterdam European Jewels cruise, I had a field day seeing and absorbing history and culture at every stop. I also loved the concert in Vienna, which included demonstrations of the Viennese Waltz and some entertaining light opera. You simply can't go to Vienna and not enjoy the music in a beautiful historical building. Though I arrived in Budapest then stepped on board straight away, I did stay a couple of days in Amsterdam on Uniworld's post-cruise package so I could explore the city and also look for windmills and tulips. I wish I had done a pre-cruise few days in Budapest as well. Would I go again with Uniworld? Ooohhhh, a definite YES! This first time has set the standard so high, that it would be a challenge to find any other company able to exceed my now skyhigh expectations. Read Less
