Splendid River Cruise-our first

Sail Date: March 01, 2006

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The Uniworld River Countress was a first class ship with lovely interiors and quite spacious even though it was holding 136 passengers.

Pros: So much beautiful architecture in Vienna, Melk, Budapest and Bratislavia

Cons: Our inability to leave the port, but fully understand the flooding on the Danube and its implications

Cabin / Stateroom
We were on lower floor, which stayed quite cool, due to being below water level.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The food was excellent and had a bend of local dishes from Hungary and Austria. The soups were exceptional as well.
Service and Staff
Everyone assisted us and made the cruise excellent in spite of not leaving the dock. The Cruise Director did on Outstanding job in rearranging the trip to make buses available for longer trips and even a 5 star hotel in Budapest.
Bringing in local groups from Bratislavia for 2 nights showed the quality of talent in the area. We also got to experience local restaurants in Budapest and enjoy musical groups as well.
