River Princess Cruise Review by 1st Mate Dave

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2016
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Standard Stateroom

We found this to be the nicest cruise line that we have been on. The service was wonderful, great food, open bar, excursions included, gratuities included and we found the ship to be in excellent condition on all levels. Our cabin was quite roomy and the bathroom was very nice. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful.

We chose to arrive in Budapest two days prior to the cruise and found that to be a great idea. We got used to the time change and were able to do some exploring on our own.

The embarkation went so quickly and smoothly that it was over before I knew it.

The ports and excursions were well thought out and Uniworlds guides were very good.

The on board entertainment was much better than we had expected bringing in some local talent from villages along the way.

We will recommend Uniworld to our friends.

Cabin Review

Standard Stateroom
Cabin 2 306

We found the cabin to be more than adequate with king bed very comfortable.

The bath was very nice with a large shower and the room was always kept very clean.

The thermostat was easy to use and kept the room very comfortable.

City Tour

Our guide was the best that we have ever had. Not only telling of the important sights but personal info on living in Budapest, family and traditions. Her English was perfect.

We took a walking tour in Nurenberg to the Castle which is under restoration.

There are great views of the city from there and we later spent time in the main square and had a nice German lunch and did some window shopping.

The next day I went to the BMW factory for a tour and found it to be one of the most fascinating experiences. The robotics are amazing and the whole plant is cleaner than a hospital. I really recommend this one.

Old Town Walking Tour

Our guide was amazing. He knew his history and was very informative. He spoke English perfectly and was a wealth of knowledge. He answered all of the groups questions and added even more. I asked if he had ever met Rick Steves and he replied that he had not but is recommended in Steves book. It was a great experience.
