Hi:My wife and I will be taking our second river Boat cruise our first was Uniworld and was just Fantastic We chose Uniworld again for this July
I am a 58 year old veteran ocean cruiser but first time river cruiser.
We are going with another couple on a river cruise in late September 2014 that will end with our own side trip to the Octoberfest. We have narrowed it down to a couple of itineraries - one Vienna to Nuremburg and the other Prague/Melnik to Berlin.
Variations on both cruises are available on Uniworld and on Viking. I have a couple of questions:
I see that Uniworld has announced an all-inclusive policy for 2014. I assume that Viking is not all inclusive; am I correct?
Usually - on ocean cruises - all inclusive lines are a little more upscale. Would you say that Uniworld is more upscale than Viking?
Does anyone have an opinion of one of these itineraries versus the other?
Does anyone have an opinion on one of these cruiselines versus the other?
Also I understand that Uniworld is much more Upscale from Vicking
