Uniworld was the first cruise to Eastern Europe since Covid shut everything down in 2019. That means there were a few hiccups, but the staff did the very best they could with what they were dealt.

This was my fourth river cruise with Uniworld. I cannot imagine taking a trip with any other company. Fantastic!

Uniworld is a five star River Cruise operator that is a complete experience including cultural aspects, Zagat dining and escorted tours. The service is impeccable and the dinners are also paired with Regional wines. The all inclusive aspect insures that all amenities are included, including alcoholic beverages. I highly recommend this river cruise operator.

River cruises in Europe with Uniworld we can say with confidence that Uniwold's high quality of service is consistant. We highly recommend Uniworld.

This trip was way beyond my expectations in terms of quality and service.
