    In my mind Uniword is the leader in river cruising. Service, food quality and presentation is stellar. While it may be a bit pricier than competitors; it's nice to have everything included in the cruise price. Loved out last cruise, would have been so much better on a super ship. Curious thing about our cruise-may be have been half filled.
    Pros Staff, service (cocktails and restaurant), excursions with top notch guides
    Cons It's not a super ship. Cabins small as are bathrooms.

    Danube Discovery

    7/2016 Prague to Vienna
    Full Review
    In general, this is a wonderful trip. The down-river passage could spend more time in Passau, which seemed rushed. The descriptions of what is covered in each excursion could be more detailed.
    Pros Outstanding crew and staff. Excellent service and professionalism. Dietary concerns were taken seriously and wonderful accommodations were made.
    Cons Some local tour guides were better than others. Some tours were very short, but most were helpful and some were excellent.

    European River Boat Cruise

    8/2015 Basel, Switzerland to Strasbourg, France to Nurenburg, Germany, with numersous German stops in between
    Full Review
    We were pleasantly surprised by the organizations caring and oversight. The small # of passengers also allowed more intimate relationships with other passengers and the crew. Everything was handled in a top-notch fashion.
    Pros Covered many beautiful cities in a short time, without having to constantly pack and repack
    Cons Time is jurisdicted by the cruise line, limiting any spontaneous outings or extensions of stays.

    Great Ship, Even Greater people

    5/2014 Prague, Nuremberg, Regensburg, Passau, Waccau Valley, Venice
    Full Review
    Though the River Ambassador isn't one of the newest ships on the river, it is very comfortable and attractively decorated. The staterooms are small, but manageable. After all, you aren't in them much. The common areas are just right for the limited number of people on board (109). They are cozy enough to encourage new acquaintances, but allow for individual space if desired. Ramona, our cruise director, was wonderful! We can't say enough good things about her, she is so warm, caring, genuine and efficient! Michaela too was always there with a smile to welcome us back onboard (and to remind us to use that handy hand sanitizer). All of the staff were attentive and pleasant. They have clearly been carefully selected and well trained. They operate as a real team. The excursions were well done and enjoyable, with one exception, the Bavarian Forest.
     
    Some passengers had physical limitations which were caringly addressed with a "gentle walking" option. We especially liked the "Do as the Locals Do" tour in Vienna and Eva's sense of humor in Passau.
     
    Uniworld has attended to every detail, and their new policies of including gratuities and alcohol were a plus. In general, meals were good, but dinners less so. This was probably the result of a sit down meal as opposed to buffet service. After all, the kitchen is small.
     
    Thanks to Uniworlds' people and their attitude this was one of our best trips ever. We would highly recommend this line and wish to thank the wonderful people who took such good care of us.
    Pros Staff and included excursions, gratuities and alcoholic beverages.
    Cons Dinners might have been a little better, Bavarian Forest excursion
