The Best Things About A Uniworld River Cruise
With all the competition in the world of river cruising, it can be hard to decide which cruise line is right for you. However, if you are looking for something at the luxury end of the market, you are sure to enjoy a tranquil journey with Uniworld Boutique River Cruises.
With 18 different ships to choose from, mainly in Europe but also across Asia and Egypt, you can choose to roll along the Rhine, meander along the Mekong or sail peacefully along the Seine.
There are so many reasons to consider Uniworld, but here are just a few.
Put Your Money Away
Once you step on board the elegant ship, you won’t need to worry about paying for any extras (save for a few premium spirits and excursions). The drinks need never stop flowing thanks to the Complimentary Beverage Programme ensuring you have unlimited wines, spirits, soft drinks, teas, coffees and mineral water throughout.
Also part of the all-inclusive offering are gratuities, wellness classes, onboard entertainment, Wi-Fi and a choice of fantastic excursions. Everything truly is covered and all that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy your holiday.
Please note, inclusions regarding the Complimentary Beverage Programme and Gratuities Programme will differ outside of Europe.
Ships As Unique As The Places They Visit
Thanks to a partnership with luxury group Red Carnation Hotels, Uniworld’s ships are breathtakingly beautiful inside and out. Bold and bright colour schemes bring character to each individual vessel and stylish finishing touches such as one-of-a-kind artworks and lighting features add more than a little bit of flare.
The opulence continues into your private cabin, where L’Occitane bathroom products and Savoir® beds ensure you cruise in unrivalled comfort. A pillow menu gives you the option to customise your sleeping preferences and there is plenty of space to store your belongings.
Butlers On Board
You won’t need to be on the ship for long before you notice just how good the service from the Uniworld crew is. From learning your preferences to greeting you with a smile, their dedication will enhance your holiday no end.
One of the best examples of this is the in-suite butler service that is also part of the all-inclusive offering for anyone choosing to upgrade from a regular stateroom. The butlers’ duties include unpacking and packing, pressing garments, and delivering room service – making them an extravagant addition you can easily get used to.
Please note, butler service is exclusive to Europe with the exception of Russia and Portugal.
With a range of different options in every port, you can choose to explore in whichever way you like. Active excursions are available through the use of bicycles and Nordic walking sticks kept on board so you can stay as active as you like and discover your own path.
An intriguing collection of exclusive experiences is also provided, allowing guests to enjoy onshore activities that make you feel like royalty. These include behind the scenes museum tours, private performances at art venues and the chance to try local produce in the very place it’s grown.
Add these to immersive village days and meals in the home of local people (thanks to a partnership with EatWith) and you can see how varied and interesting the excursion programme is.
Food is usually at the heart of every cruise and that is no different with Uniworld. Thanks to buffet breakfasts and lunches, a la carte dinners, and regular wine tasting events, you are never too far away from your next helping of fabulous flavour.
Passionate chefs take locally sourced ingredients and turn them into something you can truly savour. Dishes like ‘verdi tagliatelle with duck ragout’ and ‘Hungarian Pörkölt’ reflect the regions you’re travelling through, whilst the ‘Travelling Lite’ and vegetarian menus offer low-calorie and meat-free options respectively.
