Highly recommend this tour     4 , WA, Australia, Aug 2018
Fantastic not a single negative thing to say! Amazing tour guides very knowledgeable and amazing food and cruise staff. Astrid the hotel manager was lovely. Bar Staff couldn’t do enough. It was very moving at Utah and Omaha beaches and Honfleur was so pretty!
Uniworld is wonderful   8 , NSW, Australia, Dec 2017
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 ...read more 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.
