Uniworld Cruise Reviews
18 day China,1/20/2015
Particularly enlightening for me were the lectures on Judaism & the Holocaust and life under Commmunism. My parents survived Nazi and Soviet invasions of their country, but refused to speak of those times except to say it was too painful and too dangerous (even 40 years later). It was difficult to ... listen to these lectures - but critically important to learn and remember so that history isn't repeated.
On a lighter note, New Year's Eve dinner at Budapest's Ethnographic Museum (catered by Gundel) was fantastic! I first learned of Gundel from restaurateur Georg Lang's "Cuisine of Hungary," imo an excellent introduction to traditional Hungarian cuisine with a dollop of history for good measure. So I expected something really special - and got it. The museum's great hall was decked out for a multi-course dinner with festively decorated tables and romantic (mainly classical) music played by a string quartet; hors d'oeuvres and cocktails were served in an upstairs gallery. Our dinner was excellent, from the goose liver appetizer through the perfectly-cooked veal tenderloin to the delicious dessert, all accompanied by Hungarian wines. The river cruise which followed showed us Budapest at its most charming and romantic.
Thank you, Uniworld, for a wonderful Christmas. This won't be our last Uniworld cruise! Read More...

Kevin & I recently returned from our 5th Uniworld cruise, our 3rd on the majestic River Queen. From the moment of making our booking, the staff in Sydney were obliging and happy to assist. Upon reaching the dock in Amsterdam, we knew it was going to be another wonderful holiday. We were back with the Uniworld family.
To greet us at the gangway was a seaman/deckhand from a previous cruise on the River Ambassador. The next familiar face was Nikolay the restaurant Manager, also from River Ambassador. We were welcomed on-board like long lost cousins, open arms and warm smiles. We ... could not have wished for more.
Needless to say, the entire crews' devotion to duty and their caring for the needs of all of the passengers, still remains at 5 stars exactly as it was on our first cruise in 2009.Our special thanks and a big bouquet to each and every member of the crew without exception, for making this another unforgettable experience, for which Uniworld can be justly proud.
