We have always done ocean cruises but this was our first river cruise. SS Catherine from Uniworld was the ship we sailed on. She was more luxurious than you could imagine. The fixtures and fittings yes were OTT but the attention to detail could not be faulted. The use of mirrors everywhere made the whole ship from the cabins to all the lounges and restaurant appear larger and give the feeling of light and space. The owners certainly in my opinion had put so much thought into this ship and spared no expense it certainly has paid off. This is truly an all-inclusive cruise from the fabulous food and no one will go hungry if you cant find what you are looking for you only have to ask. All the drinks are premium even the champagne is first class. There are so many trips included that it is very difficult to choose which ones to go on. There are bicycles to use if you wish to go off and explore. Kayaks to use on some of the rivers. The staterooms have the most comfortable beds that I have ever slept in and there is a choice of pillows which we all miss when away from home. The staff works extremely hard to make your holiday one that you will never forget. I never saw a member of staff that did not have a warm greeting for you whatever the time or day. I truly believe that they are really happy in working for Uniworld. The cruise name Burgundy and the Provence. I have enclosed a couple of photos. One is a trip to a truffle farm and the photo is of Emmie digging for truffles she is so cute. You must be thinking was there anything that i could say that I could find fault with not a fault but there was only one thing for me and that was the coffee was never hot. We will certainly go on another river cruise at some point of time they are so laid back no formal evenings just smart casual which was something my husband liked also much easier in not having to pack two or three evening dresses. To finish if like me you have thought about a river cruise I would say go for it you will not regret it.
