  1. We rebooked (for the second time) a cruise on the Seine and Rhone for August 2021. We originally booked for March, 2020, then August 2020. Hoping and praying that a vaccine and treatment will be widely available by this time next year!
  2. Thank you for your posts and pictures! Brings back lots of good memories of our Uniworld trip to Spain and Portugal two years ago. Such a beautiful part of the world!
  3. Not surprised! We took our first Crystal river cruise last summer. It was a wonderful, top notch experience!
  4. We took one Viking river cruise several years ago, and will not book with them again since our experience was so disappointing. We usually book with Uniworld as we've always enjoyed those trips. Last year we took our first river cruise with Crystal and the whole experience was top notch: the service, the food, the excursions, the accommodations were all excellent. Have a wonderful time!
  5. In another topic, someone suggested that Uniworld is staggering their cancellations in order to more efficiently deal with refunds and rebooking. Makes sense for the company, but leaves many of us in limbo about cruises that are still scheduled for the next couple of months. I expect our August cruise will be cancelled sometime in the next couple of weeks.

    That's a good point, Roz. Our August 16th cruise to France with Uniworld hasn't been cancelled yet, but France is still not open for tourists and unless restrictions let up significantly, I can't believe that we'll be taking that cruise. It makes sense that the company is staggering cancellations, but it sure leaves us wondering whether we'll have the option to cruise.
  7. We're still booked for a mid August France cruise with Uniworld, but I have my doubts that it will happen...or if will be the experience that we paid for (in full almost a year ago) if it isn't cancelled. A brave new world we're having to learn to live with... I would think that once a vaccine and/or treatment are available we'll all feel more excited about booking vacations abroad.
  8. Did you ever get a reply from Uniworld via your TA? My TA said Uniworld had not yet suspended cruises beyond July 1.
  9. Since we are booked on a Uniworld cruise August 16th, I asked my TA to check with the company about cancellations, since there are no Uniworld cruises listed until September. Her response was, "Uniworld has not suspended any sailings past mid-July." Guess it's still a game of wait and see....
  10. Just checked Uniworld's website. They are no longer listing any available European river cruises through August. I'm wondering if they'll follow several other companies and cancel bookings until September.
  11. Thanks for sharing this interesting article. Still doesn't look like river cruising in Europe will be an option this summer, or maybe fall or winter...
  12. Thanks for the updates. We are currently booked with Uniworld's Grand France tour departing mid August (rescheduled from our canceled March cruise), but I'm very skeptical that even that trip will happen with all the current travel restrictions.
  13. Last summer we took a Crystal cruise on the Rhine and Moselle. On our cruise there was a wonderful 93 year old gentleman who seemed to enjoy the whole experience. It was wonderful to see the ship's staff cater to him, from bringing him his requested selections at breakfast and lunch buffets, to walking (slowly) with him and his walker one-on-one during some of our excursions. So pre-Corona virus, the river cruises we've been on (Uniworld and Crystal) have all helped to make sure that passengers of all ages have an enjoyable experience. Not sure how it will be on future cruises.
  14. I love that visiting your mother on Mother's Day was deemed essential! 💕
  15. We visited Burg Eltz last summer while on our Crystal Bach cruise. It was a highlight of the trip! Such a beautiful castle!
