This was our second Uniworld cruise this year, we travelled on the River Beatrice to Eastern Europe in April and this time round to Paris and parts of Normandy on the Joie de Vivre. Uniworld has found the right balance for their cruises, interesting excursions in port, but enough leisure time to choose to do your own thing and relax.

The overall feel of their ships is European elegance, beautifully furnished and maintained, the cabins and public areas are always spotless. The meals on board are really good and with plenty of choice, we did feel the Beatrice had a slight edge in the cuisine overall.

The staff on both ships were excellent, they make the cruise what it is. Personable, cheerful, helpful young people, always willing to go the extra mile. The staff in the main dining room often address you by name and remember your choice of drink, etc.

We met mainly American and Canadian travellers, also from the UK, Australia, China, an opportunity to meet people from all over the world and many walks of life. We are seriously thinking of another trip with Uniworld, that should say it all. Hannah from Global Journeys is the best, we trust her implicitly, she knows what we want when we travel and always delivers. Thank you dear Hannah.

We had two river cruises on this itinerary. The first tour director was not really there as if she wanted to be somewhere else. Her planning was also inefficient. The second cruise director - AJ - was amazing. Couldn't fault anything and his daily talks really made you look forward to the next day. The on board pianist was amazing but the entertainment that was booked additionally was...tired.

This is the best river cruise I have ever done. The staff were friendly and helpful and all included tours were great. The cabins were comfortable but glad we upgraded as the twin cabins were very small. But overall would highly recommend a Uniworld cruise. Will definitely travel with them again.
