River Duchess

5.0/5 |
As you are warmly welcomed onboard the River Duchess, the elegant lobby sets the stage for the unfolding of your one-of-a-kind river cruise experience. The main lounge offers a place to gather with friends for cocktails or to enjoy some culturally-enriching onboard entertainment. A cozy library provides the perfect setting for conversing with friends about the awe-inspiring sights you've seen or simply perusing one of the many interesting books on display. Finely appointed furnishings in plush fabrics and rich leathers, custom designed carpets and silk wall treatments are only a few of the signature touches used to create the most inviting ambience for guests traveling onboard a Uniworld ship.

Great River Cruise

| Amsterdam to Budapest
Overall the food was good, but the daily menu could have had more selections, and sometimes the food was too salty. We also enjoyed the dining experience on the upper deck, which had a different menu. Unfortunately, we made reservations and they were cancelled by the staff. We felt the music entertainment on board could have been better. Overall, the staff was great, and our waiter (Paul) made our experience very enjoyable. Our stateroom staff was excellent and pleasant.
