Chose this to enjoy exceptional comforts of cruise and learning excursions. Returned to Uniworld again in 2016 following MOST satisfactory and satisfying 2015 Paris/Normandy cruise (to celebrate 50th wedding anniversary). Physical comforts were most satisfactory; service was exceptional, first class; food was outstanding; excursion guides and hosts were awesome!!! Both cruises, trips. It really is refreshing, relaxing, "freeing" to simply unpack and put your clothes in one closet for several days and let them follow you to numerous ports and land excursions with very knowledgeable, most cordial, patient and personable local guides and be continually welcomed and pampered by quality on board staff. And, the pre and post cruise experiences were comparable quality too. It was comforting to experience safety as foremost (but handled seamlessly) and for all activities, events, actions to occur on schedule. Uniworld even arranged to have, provide my favorite bourbon and were continually aware of and unobtrusively assisted with (vegetarian) diet foods. We will enjoy other river cruises with Uniworld! Again, the Uniworld team (ie: people) are OUTSTANDING!

EXCEPTIONAL service and learning experience!

Cabin Review

Cabin 315
Comfortable, efficient, sufficient storage space - especially considering that, like most all people, we did not stay in our cabin except to bathe, dress and sleep. There is just much more to do and places (ex: deck; lounge; dining; library; excursions) to enjoy.
