Paris to Normandy

This was a great experience

Falling in Love with Paris, France

| Paris, France
The staff and service was divine. Love, love, loved our excursions...blown away with Normandy, the apple farm, seaside villages, artists and their work, the Paris Opera, Moulin Rouge (everyone should see it at least once) and romance on the Eiffel Tower. Food on the Baroness was excellent and the sense of community with the crew, staff and fellow travelers was almost over-whelming but thoroughly appealing.

1st Time River Cruisers

| Paris to Normandy
Our first experience will be hard to top. We look forward to traveling with Uniworld in the future. The attention to detail is fantastic.

Paris in winter

| Paris
Even though it was quite cold, the outdoor activities were at a fast enough pace that we managed not to freeze. There was a special group for slower walkers. Versailles was impossible but it was holiday time so not unexpected. Having group tables for dining was a good way to meet new people.

River Baroness

| Paris-Normandy-Paris
Overall, we are very glad we took this riverboat cruise. It was very relaxing on the boat for the most part and we enjoyed Lazlo in the Monet Lounge. All the staff treated us very well and we especially felt pampered by dining room server Adrian. Speaking of the Monet Lounge, the chairs need refurbishing plus they are too heavy.

Cruise to Normandy on River Baroness

| Paris/Normandy/Paris
Uniworld gets an A-plus for putting on a great trip. The ship is beautifully appointed; the crew very accessible, friendly and helpful; the captain very much in evidence and willing to answer questions; excellent food, beautifully presented and with lots of variety; well-planned and executed side trips.

Paris-Normandy River Cruise

| Paris to Normandy and return
Though the River Baroness is one of the smaller ships, and the staterooms were very small, they were elegantly and luxuriously appointed. There aren't enough superlatives to describe the personnel, food and service provided by Uniworld, and of course, being all-inclusive as of this year, it was also a great value.

Sailing the Seine

| Paris, Normandy, Giverny, D-Day beaches
Our 4th cruise with Uniworld and 8th river cruise overall. Wonderful experience! Terrific staff especially matre d' hotel Cristina and cruise/tour director Audrey. Seine was much more scenic than I anticipated. I loved the lecture on the Impressionists and the trips to Auvers sur Oise and Giverny. The eveing of French music with Jean-Louis and Marie was most enjoyable!Trip to the Fragonard Museum and making my own eau de Cologne was fun and interesting. Plan to spend a few days in Paris pre or post cruise if you haven't been before. Beware, the cabins are small on this ship, no matter which deck but they are nicely appointed and kept beautifully! Very nice passengers were a plus too! Overall, loved this trip!
