  1. We used FAB tours for each of our three Iceland ports and they were wonderful. They were not photo-specific tours.
  2. We're spending several days in Montreal prior to our Holland America cruise. We're staying at Le Saint-Sulpice Hotel next to the Notre-Dame Basilica. We'd like some recommendations for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We're not gourmet eaters so mid-priced family-style restaurants would be fine. Within walking distance of the hotel would be great. Thanks for your help.
  3. I purchase all of my trip insurance thru https://tripinsurancestore.com/. Their web site is a wealth of information but call them so they can answer all your questions and recommend a policy suitable for your needs. Purchasing thru them doesn't increase the cost of the insurance.
  4. We did Uniworld Budapest to Bucharest in April. Our cruise ended with two days in Bucharest at the Radisson Blu Hotel. The second day (4-11-19) we had several excursion choices: 8:30 am - 6:00 pm Sinaia Mountain Resort with Peles Castle visit, lunch and wine (79 euro per person) or Ceausescu's Mansion visit (9:30-11:30 am or 10:30-12:30 pm), no extra cost 3:00-5:30 pm Village Museum (39 euro per person) Sign-up deadline for the extra cost excursions was 4-9-19 onboard the ship. There was no option to book excursions prior to boarding the ship.
  5. We recently completed the Milan to Venice cruise with Uniworld. There was a lady on the cruise who used an electric scooter. She was traveling with her daughter and I couldn't believe how accommodating the crew was. They carried the scooter on and off the boat and in some cases carried her on and off. She used the scooter on board and there was an elevator on the ship which she utilized to travel between floors.
  6. We concluded Highlights of Eastern Europe in Bucharest on April 11, 2019. The Peles Castle Visit Lunch & Wine was 79 Euros per person and the Ceausescu's Mansion visit was no extra cost. Peles Castle was all day and Ceausescu's Mansion was morning only.
  7. My wife and I have done five Uniworld cruises, the latest being Venice. Many people change for dinner but most don't dress very fancy. Wearing your daytime outfit is acceptable. You'll have no trouble socializing and you'll love the cruise. Here's the link for my review: https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=655430&et_cid=3214772&et_rid=10404728&et_referrer=Contest_NCL_2013
  8. The Uniworld rep will sell you the rooftop tickets to go on your own, but I'd recommend going as part of the Uniworld group so you will have a guide who will explain what you're seeing. Afterwards as part of the tour we went to a restaurant for wine and antipasto that was so filling we didn't need dinner. Uniworld does it right. We didn't do the art tour.
  9. My wife and I just returned from Milan to Venice on River Countess. Here's the link to my review: https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=655430&et_cid=3214772&et_rid=10404728&et_referrer=Contest_NCL_2013

  11. robertmartha- We've found that most people go into the dining room at 7 pm. This is often because you've met friends and want to dine together. But there are people who come in a little bit later. It's never seemed to be problem, particularly if you prefer a table for two.
  12. Of our five Uniworld cruises, Budapest to Bucharest was our least favorite. I've written a review but it hasn't been published yet. If you do take this cruise, I recommend Bucharest to Budapest.
  13. Just returned from our fifth Uniworld cruise: Milan to Venice. Although this is not really a river cruise since most of the time the ship is docked in the Venice lagoon, it was the first time I ever felt any motion on a river cruise. The water traffic in the lagoon caused the ship to rock at times.
  14. Bob: Yes, the food taste even better than it looks and Uniworld takes wonderful care of you. Mention something and it's done. You'll have a wonderful trip.
  15. My wife and I are taking two Uniworld cruises back to back. We just started our Milan to Venice trip. I'm doing a daily blog for anyone interested: https://davejetton.blogspot.com/ These will be our fourth and fifth Uniworld cruises and I plan to review them when we get home.
