River Cruise Itinerary

Cruise along the Rhine—Germany on one side, France on the other. Discover Alsace, whose dual French and German heritage has given it fabulous food and a winemaking tradition that goes back to the Romans. Marvel at castles that were once mighty fortresses and get an insider’s look at the impressive Rheinstein Castle. Visit historic cities, including ancient Cologne and picturesque Strasbourg; stroll through the fairytale town of Rüdesheim; and taste delightful white wines in the villages where the grapes are grown. Generations Family Program (select sailings): Share the enchantment of this region with the special young people in your life. These cruises not only feature unique, fun-filled adventures for families to enjoy together, they’re also packed with culturally and historically significant experiences designed to spark creativity and lifelong learning.

The trip up the Rhone River more than met our expectations (except it rained more than we liked!). It was a marvelous trip that the eight of us (four couples) enjoyed very much,

I thoroughly enjoyed this river cruise along the Danube. Everything was as advertised. We were met at the airport and arrived early to our ship. The Uniworld staff was amazing! I definitely recommend this cruise.

Small group on ship. Great for meeting new people. Great friendly professional staff. Excellent food. Depending on destinations excursions are good. This was our second time with Uniworld. First was Italy. That was unbelievable.

Both my husband and I agree we'll never travel with another river cruise line, other than Uniworld. Our second vacation provided the same constant service as the first. The hospitality, comfort and beauty of the suite cabins, the food prepared, and all the rest simply cannot be matched. Our expectations were met with perfection!

Uniworld once again provided the exemplary experience we've come to expect. It was maybe not quite as high level as two previous Uniworld cruises but almost.

The staff on the Marie Teresa is outstanding.

Uniworld takes care of you! The bottom line is we had a great trip, in great part, because of the attention the staff on the boat paid to us and all the other passengers.

Our day trip coordinator, went out of her way to help us with information and booking assistance for additional sights we wanted to see.

Perfect trip and excellent service by Kia

Uniworld is a luxury river cruise and all tours were exceptional.

During COVID we were unsure about all the rules of the trip. Everything turned out OK. This cruise was above our expectations for itinerary, accommodations, food, and safety. Visiting southern France felt like being among friends. They appreciated us being there and we had an amazing time. This is our 5th trip with Uniworld and most of our fellow cruisers were also repeats.

Uniworld continues to provide an exceptional level of service. The food and beverages were excellent. The included excursions were very well done with relatively small groups and very entertaining local guides. This was our 5th Uniworld cruise and we were so happy that they continue to offer the personal attention and quality that we have grown to expect. This itinerary had a nice balance of some daytime sailing and very interesting excursions.

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.

Uniworld should advise potential customers of the level of activity, especially for this trip. While I personally had no problems with the demanding Itinerary, the elderly or disabled could not visit some of the sites we saw due to accessibility. Uniworld rents their boats so there is no consistency from trip to trip. This was a very beautiful, spacious boat and the staff were incredibly gracious and helpful. We felt very welcomed and appreciated. Four seasons was nice but food was too expensive and there were no alternatives since we were warned not to venture out on our own. Customer should be warned that they will be escorted by armed guards and there will be a lot of security checks on this trip.
