This was our first river cruise, so we really did not know what to expect. We found that the minute we came on board the ship we felt very welcomed. Quickly, we realized that we made the correct decision to chose Uniworld. The service of every staff member from housekeeping, to the captain was excellent. Our cruise director Piet, was outstanding. The various tours were informative an unique that provided life time memories. The venues were particularly interesting, including the vinegar tasting, wine tasting at Vollards Castle and the visit to Marksburg Castle. The food selections, quality and presentation were above our expectations. Our service staff was attentive and engaging. By the end of the cruise, it felt that the staff was part of your family. The only negative is that the ship is beginning to show it's age, particularly in the cabins. The wall fabrics appear worn are in need of updating. A very pleasurable and memorable experience!

Well decorated. Very comfortable bed. Wall fabrics are beginning to show their age and need updating.
