Uniworld Boutique River Cruises is headed into 2023 with a hefty list of experiences, itineraries, extensions and updates that will wow your clients looking to head to Europe—and beyond!
“Innovation is always at top of mind for us at Uniworld,” said Ellen Bettridge, president and CEO, in a press statement. “Each year, we strive to make the next river cruise season even better than the last. We’re rolling out fresh new offerings and expanding our portfolio with experiences that we’re confident both new and loyal guests will enjoy.”
Believe it or not, the New Year is practically around the corner, and with it come four new itineraries from Uniworld.
The 15-day Grand Central Europe itinerary will cruise along three iconic rivers—the Rhine, Main and Danube—through Switzerland, France, Germany and Austria. The 10-day Zurich & the Rhine River Valley itinerary will sail along the Rhine and Main rivers through Switzerland, France and Germany. There will also be an option for guests to take a day trip to the blissful spa town of Baden-Baden, featuring two thermal baths and a famous casino. A new 8-day Belgian Holiday Markets itinerary will showcase Belgium’s untapped Christmas markets and holiday treats at the most festive time of year. Finally, a 46-night Rivers of the World cruise will depart on May 20, 2023, taking guests to nine countries aboard five luxury Super Ships and combining both cruise and land.
In 2023, clients wanting to book Italy or Vietnam will find updated itineraries. Guests aboard the S.S. La Venezia will receive an even more immersive experience in Venice and the Veneto region on the Milan, Venice & the Jewels of Veneto sailing. New inclusions are a Po Delta sailing to view Italy’s only delta and largest national reserve of wetlands; a bragozzo boat ride and wine tasting at the romantic Ca’Zen villa in Chiogga and a signature Murano glass blowing demonstration.
Additionally, the Timeless Wonders of Vietnam & Cambodia itinerary will go from 13 to 15 days, with two added days in Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi at the end or beginning of the journey.
