  1. It was a really well designed space. And the bonus was that we always had it all to ourselves!
  2. Same on the Uniworld cruises we’ve been on although they could open everything up on the Antoinette in nice weather. It was our favorite space on the boat.
  3. Same here. We enjoyed Salzburg but it was very crowded and Cesky is just pure magic.
  4. Could have sworn I answered this but it doesn’t look like it got posted. We have had butlers on our later trips but did not on the Antoinette when we had a balcony stateroom.
  5. I would spend a couple extra days in Budapest as there is plenty to see there and keep you busy and lots of great markets. Also I would not miss the opportunity to visit Prague and Cesky Krumlov.
  6. We usually ask for a wake up Knock at the door with a cup of coffee
  7. Enjoy! Wonderful way to celebrate a special anniversary!
  8. Just one other note: On the Antoinnette the pool is actually on deck 4 along with the suites and other cabins and is at the rear end of that level near the spa. It is on the same level as the salon and the bar also.
  9. I understand now that you mean the ladder for entry to the pool itself. I have bad knees and really didn’t find it a problem. I’m attaching a pic of it. The week that we were on the ship we never saw anyone else at the pool. It was like our private area. Note that it is a swim spa so you could turn the jet on if you wanted to swim against the pressure. We didn’t find the dining room excessively loud but I think that would depend on how many large groups you have traveling together. As far as the crowds, that comment was really more about Europe in general in the summertime. We generally go in May or September or later.
  10. The Rhine itinerary you're looking at was the first one we did with Uniworld. We've found that we prefer to travel in either the spring or the fall since it's less crowded and the temps are more comfortable for a lot of walking. We've only been on the Uniworld Super Ships and the Antoinette was in very good shape when we were on the boat, although that was a few years ago. We loved the pool area and are not understanding the comment about accessing it only via a ladder. Uniworld has been renovating a number of their ships to Super Ships and also adding new boats to their fleets. We'll be on the S.S. São Gabriel, a new boat on the Douro, later this year. We've only been on the Antoinette and the Maria Theresa (twice) so far, and enjoyed both.
  11. I just went back and looked and they reduced the week after our Douro cruise by A LOT! Unfortunately for us, not the week we're on the boat.
  12. Wonderful! Glad to hear this!!

  14. I know what you mean about shock. My DH was quite accidentally diagnosed with lung cancer (never smoked, no symptoms, tumor found on an unrelated scan). Just goes to show that the time for us to live is now. So glad to hear that all is going well for you so far - and yes, very often the follow up treatment is well worth it. May we all remain healthy enough for many more years of wonderful travel experiences!
