The Trip of a Lifetime
"I spent 33 days in Europe in October 2015, mostly on Uniworld's River Duchess, sailing an itinerary known as the "Grand European River Voyage." This itinerary (which will be changed for 2016) starts in Amsterdam and..."Read More

Wonderful Cruise Celebration, Great Itinerary

We have cruised with Uniworld two years ago from Budapest to Passau and decided we wanted to do this cruise which actually started in Amsterdam and ended in Bucharest. WE had 21 days on the ship and 2 nights in Bucharest. We also did the pre cruise in Amsterdam, which was the only disappointment of the trip. So I want to get that out of the way first. We booked the pre cruise tour in ...

We used Uniworld on our 4 previous European river cruises and had been given a discount voucher because of some travel disruption last time (which was no fault of Uniworld and they took care of us extremely well.) We decided we would like to see the Kukenhof Gardens in April. I was not expecting a great deal from the ship, as it pre-dated and had smaller cabins than the magnificent Marie ...

This was our 4th cruise with Uniworld, a total of 8 family members included in our group. Once again, Uniworld showed why they are at the top of the river cruise universe. Their attentiveness, courtesy, helpfulness, social awareness permeates all employee levels all the way up to the most congenial and sociable captain we have met to date. The itinerary and the sights from Amsterdam to Antwerp ...

My husband and I chose the Uniworld cruise, Tulips and Windmills, because we wanted to travel in early spring. It was a wonderful experience. We have traveled extensively for over thirty years and, at the conclusion of this trip, my husband stated that he thought this was the best vacation we had ever taken! The food (presentation and taste) and the friendliness and caring attitude of the ...

Visiting the Christmas Markets in Germany had been on our bucket list for some time. This Uniworld cruise that our friends found was the perfect solution to enjoying the markets, touring the area, learning the history all in extraordinary comfort and luxury! From the time we boarded the ship in Frankfurt until we disembarked in Nuremberg we were treated like valued guests... pampered actually. ...

This was an incredible cruise and definitely worth the money. Our room was on the 2nd floor near the coffee lounge. We thought it may have been noisy and thought we would request an upgrade before we even went to our room. We looked at the suites on the forth floor and decided that as the room is the same size no matter where on the ship other than the window it was not worth the amount for the ...

We absolutely loved our trip on the Duchess. We departed from Amsterdam ( we stayed there for a week before embarking and would recommend to do this) on 27th July and ended in Istanbul in Mid August. Everything, from the minute that we dropped off the bags early, to the morning we waved goodbye from our shuttle to the plane, was wonderful. And the main reason?? The staff. From Stanimira, ...

We have sailed with Uniworld many times, after trying some of the other river cruise companies out there. Unlike the other companies, every trip with Uniworld has been wonderful. Uniworld exceeds our expectations on every level and just keeps getting better and better. From the moment you step onboard the crew is so welcoming and attentive. The really try to get to know you and provide ...

As we were wanting a trip special enough to help us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, we decided The River Duchess sounded perfect! As it turned out we weren't disappointed at all. Our embarkation in Amsterdam went very smoothly. Our cabin was well decked out & very comfortable. The ship is beautiful as is the crew who were always cheerful & friendly & willing to do anything for us. The ...
