Castles Along The Rhine Cruise Review

“I’ve voyaged the Rhine many times with many different cruise companies and I have to say that this cruise has been the best. My cabin was the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in because it had more amenities than any cruise has provided in the past. I made great use of the tea and coffee station as well as the library. I didn’t spend all my time on the ship, though. I thoroughly enjoyed the excursions into the countries we visited, I was a big fan of the Technik Museum. Will be booking a cruise with Uniworld again.”
