Parts of this new ship's design had us scratching our heads
"My wife and I sailed on the third sailing of the new SS Maria Theresa. We enjoyed much about the cruise although a few things left us scratching our heads. I will hit the highlights of the good, the not so good,..."Read More

Great Experience on the Danube

I'm going to break my review into some basic areas that really are the things most folks look for on river cruise. The Tours, Food, Accommodations, Ambiance and staff. Let me start with the easiest first...Staff. Staff: Uniworld certainly knows what it's doing when it comes to hiring the "best of the best" as we found each and every person on board to be kind, engaging, fun, service oriented ...

Took this trip as a Christmas Market trip- Uniworld delivered. However, I would do the Danube River again and make sure we took in more of the historical parts of the cities - we missed out on that - to be fair we booked a Christmas Market trip - so it wasn't a Uniworld thing. Cities are amazing. Ship is spectacular. Clean, beautiful, crew was friendly and helpful. We found we had ...

We have done several ocean cruises but this is the first river cruise, so our comparison point is not with other river cruises. We had a very enjoyable time overall. The smaller ship (~150) was cozy and let the staff be more flexible in arrangements. The ship facilities were good overall. The excursions were great. The quietvox system they used was really useful. For the biking ...

We wanted to experience Eastern Europe, not having been there before, and chose an 8 day cruise between Budapest and Passau. The shore excursions were informative without being great and we sometimes had only brief periods to explore the cities/towns on our own. Our on board experience was mostly good and all the crew were ultra-attentive and always helpful. The restaurant service was impeccable ...

Age 60s

Please note that our family has lived overseas on three different continents, and we traveled a great deal in each area, usually on our own with children. We decided on this small cruise for several reasons: friends joined us, the area interested us, and the definite ease of travel. For the record: I will never, ever, ever take a cruise on a larger ship. Massive amounts of people make my skin ...

Service was top notch, ship is great but food was disappointing. Buffet style breakfast and lunch every day. When we told the maitre'd that we didnt like that style they brought us menus and did an excellent job of providing us with table service but the food just lacked something. Chef tried very had but we think he was handcuffed by the quality of the food and also by the dietary habits of ...

We are experienced ocean cruisers so we tried not to compare river to ocean cruise as we had sailed on the now defunct Peter Deilmann river cruise over 10 years ago and anything would have been better than that experience. Suffice it to say, Uniworld provides a superior experience from the standpoint of service on board. All personnel were committed to providing the best customer service albeit ...

My cruising background: * Sea Cruise Nights: (about 280, mainly on Seabourn) * River Cruise Nights: This is my 1st River cruise. OUR SUITE: 406 PROBLEM #1 - INTERNET Internet access is free, and fast enough. But there is a big problem with accessing anything else than BASIC email and WEBSITES. There seems to be a firewall between the ship and the world that is set as follows: * ...

Superb food, excellent service - shame about the decor

For obvious reasons I have never had the opportunity to familiarise myself with the decor of the average 17th century baroque brothel but, had I done so, I am sure that I would have felt perfectly at home as soon I had set foot on this ship. Whatever possessed them to decorate it as they have, I cannot imagine. Almost the entire ship is a melange of gold leaf, shiny stuff, tassels, mirrors, glass, ...
