Just returned from the Uniworld River Cruise from Amsterdam to Basel and cannot rave about it enough! We had 100 people on the cruise and everyone just raved about the quality of the food and service. In fact, some people on the cruise that had been on many Uniworld trips said this one had the best service they've seen. It was fabulous. Wine pairings were great, but the staff also served anything on request, from Mexican coffee, to Pina Coladas to hard drinks. We try and eat well when at home and the healthy choices at every meal, from smoothies, fruits/cereal to omelettes at breakfast, to wonderful salads at lunch and dinner that allowed us to cheat with desserts. But it was the wonderful tours, the lounging on top of the ship while passing castles, and small villages, the incredible staff that pulled out bicycles for us to ride when in port! This was our fourth cruise and was by far the best one. Uniworld has every single detail down to a science. After tours, the staff often greets returning guests with towelettes and tea or juice! We are already to planning our next Uniworld trip!

Wow! The Best Cruise Ever!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Window
Cabin 2 206
I am highly claustrophobic and yet I had no problem in cabin 206 on the River Empress. Every time we used a towel, it was changed out by the staff. Service was the best we have ever seen! The bed was fabulous and better than the high end hotels we staying in pre and post trip.
