Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection recently announced that it will introduce four new ships to its fleet of floating boutique hotels over the next three years. New ships will launch on the Nile River in Egypt, the Douro in Portugal and the Mekong in Vietnam in 2020, followed by a new ship on the Volga in Russia in 2021.

These ships will replace existing vessels in each destination and will feature levels of comfort, luxury, and design that is in line with Uniworld’s custom built Super Ships in Europe. Uniworld also announced that it will be renovating and upgrading its River Countess vessel, which offers itineraries in Venice. 

“We are delighted to bring our unique and elegantly designed one-of-a-kind vessels to the rivers in Egypt, Portugal, Vietnam and Russia for the first time,” said Ellen Bettridge, president and CEO of Uniworld, in press materials. “We strive to provide our discerning guests with an unforgettable river cruise experience both on and off shore, therefore we have plans to offer our one-of-a-kind ships on our popular itineraries along the Nile, Douro, Mekong and the Volga.

With a beautiful upgrade of the River Countess also planned for 2020, our brand is truly innovating and these new developments demonstrate that Uniworld will always be ahead of the competition as the luxury leader in river cruising,” she added.

This announcement follows a number of recent ship transformations undertaken by the luxury cruise line, including the successful launch of the S.S. Joie de Vivre on the Seine in 2017 and Super Ship transformations of the S.S. Beatrice in 2018, and of the S.S. Bon Voyage, which is set to sail in France in spring 2019.
