Magnificent Moselle & Rhine Cruise Review

“I’m getting on in my years now and have been on my fair share of river cruises but let me tell you, the Magnificent Moselle & Rhine cruise knocked it out of the park for me! I got some of my best nights’ sleep aboard the River Queen, probably because I was so tired out from the excitement throughout the day. I was never bored, there was always something to do and the staff aboard were friendly and helpful with helping me get to where I needed to be. I would definitely book with Uniworld again!”
