    Falling in Love with Paris, France

    10/2016 Paris, France
    Full Review
    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.
    Pros The food, the service, the excursions, the champagne...all of the extraordinary people we met.
    Cons Grumpy thought our room was too small but once the suitcase went under the bed, I had plenty of room to organize my clothes, shoes and makeup.

    Sailing the Seine

    10/2015 Paris, Normandy, Giverny, D-Day beaches
    Full Review
    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!
    Pros Itinerary, tours,tour guides, staff, other passengers
    Cons Small cabins but Uniworld will be re-modeling to make this an all suite ship in 2017

    River Baroness

    7/2015 Paris-Normandy-Paris
    Full Review
    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.
    Pros Great staff, great food, clean facilities
    Cons Staterooms just too tiny, tours should have included more shopping towns, bus tour of Paris was disappointing, no time for stopping or photo ops at the main attractions.

    Paris in winter

    1/2015 Paris
    Full Review
    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.
    Pros Extremely well organized, great guides, interesting itinerary, enough free time, elegant meals
    Cons Rooms really small, no fireworks as advertised

    Paris-Normandy River Cruise

    10/2014 Paris to Normandy and return
    Full Review
    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.
    Pros Wonderful staff, great info on excursions, food and service outstanding
    Cons size of stateroom (oh well)

    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.
    Pros Friendly crew, wonderful food, congenial atmosphere
