While most river cruises offer similar route itineraries, it is the extra-special experiences that differentiate Uniworld from other river cruise operators. For example, guests are treated to an evening opening of St. Mark’s Basilica in Italy with a special lightshow and presentation. Or during the Enchanting Christmas & New Year’s Cruise (Passau to Budapest), travelers can attend an exclusive cocktail reception at Artstetten Castle in Grein, Austria with Princess Anita von Hohenberg, a descendant of the royal Habsburgs.
The River Royale, currently sailing these rivers will move to Uniworld’s newest destination, the Bordeaux region of France, with the eight-day Bordeaux, Vineyards & Châteaux itinerary and 15-day A Portrait of Majestic France, sailing along the rivers of Northern and Southern France.
Venice to Rome in 13 days! A river cruise aboard the River Countess and a land tour that reveals the Splendors of Northern Italy, Venice, Florence and Rome. Free airfare to Italy on select departures, solo traveler savings and other special offers. Uniworld
Recognizing the growing interest in intergenerational travel, Uniworld is offering family programs on select sailings. In Travel + Leisure’s 2013 “World’s Best Awards”, Uniworld earned the #1 spot in the “Top River Cruise Lines for Families” category … not once but three years in a row!
Uniworld’s multi-generational itineraries provide an enriching travel experience for each generation. Family-friendly programs, such as Castles along the Rhine, Paris & Normandy and Germany’s Classic Christmas Markets, have been developed around school vacations. They include onboard and shore programs tailored specifically families such as a hot air balloon ride in Paris instead of the standard city tour.
Complimentary bicycles on board allow families to explore independently during destination stops. Uniworld
These sailings feature special pricing with young people between 4 and 18 traveling at 50% off the cruise price when accompanied by an adult.
