What our clients are saying about their journeys along the rivers of Europe & Asia


“Enjoyable Rhine river cruise”
Josephine - TAS, Australia Aug 2019
We very much enjoyed our first river cruise. The included excursions were excellent though started quite early in the morning (8 - 10am) so you had to be up quite early. The lower floor cabins were fine though probably not as well laid out as some of the ocean cruises we have been on. Some of the food was lovely other meals ok. The only thing which may put me off river cruising in future is that it was near impossible to spend time away from other travellers unless you were in your room. There were ...read more

“Excellent cruise”
Geoffrey & Gail - VIC, Australia Jul 2019
Excellent tour. Highly recommended. Great scenery. Great excursions. Great food, wine and entertainment. Excellent cruise director, cabin staff and waiters.

“Magnificent Europe on Amabella”
Sandra - NSW, Australia Jul 2019
Our first river cruise and we enjoyed every moment. Jemma Rosen from Global Journeys did a great job organising everything for us as a last minute decision to go. APT was great, Amabella our ship was OK but maybe a bit in need of redecorating in the main lounge area. The food was plentiful but not as many choices as we are used to on ocean cruises. The highlights were the wonderful excursions and special events, they were amazing! We loved our double balcony cabin and the top deck pool was very ...read more

“Excellent cruise with good service”
Andrew - WA, Australia Jul 2019
Generally an excellent cruise with good service and very good guides on shore excursions. The only event which we thought overrated was the dinner at Princess Heide's castle - the cooking of the food (chicken) was very ordinary compared with that served on the ship .

Cam and Fran's Paris to Normandy River Cruise on Uniworld's Joie de Vivre

I think that Spring is a wonderful time of year to visit Paris. The days are sunny and warm with just enough nip in the air to wear a nice coat (living on the Sunshine Coast makes coat wearing a rare treat!) and the city and parks are coming to life with spring flowers and blossoms. So I was..
