Uniworld Celebrates Debut Departure

Uniworld Boutique River Cruises has officially returned to the rivers of Europe, as its newly transformed Super Ship S.S. La Venezia departed on its inaugural sailing earlier this month (June 20).

The cruise departed from Venice with Uniworld’s President and CEO, Ellen Bettridge, joining clients and the crew for the debut sailing.

Said Bettridge: “We’re overjoyed the day has finally come to set sail again, welcoming back our loyal guests not only for the first sailing of the reimagined S.S. La Venezia, but the first European sailing for any North American river cruise line. The wellbeing of our guests and our crew is our main priority and we’re honoured they have entrusted us to welcome travel’s return. We’re taking all necessary precautions to ensure they are comfortable and have enhanced our already stringent security and sanitation protocols.”

Bettridge noted that: “Restarting this itinerary is only the first step in getting all of our ships back on the rivers this year. There’s so much to look forward to with the debut of the all-new S.S. Sphinx launching in Egypt September 25th, and we’ll also begin sailing the Peruvian Amazon September 1st aboard the Aria Amazon.”

Cruises will restart in France shortly after Italy, with first departures for S.S. Bon Voyage on June 27, S.S. Joie de Vivre on July 4 and S.S. Catherine on July 11. As always, sailings are inclusive of all meals onboard, premium spirits and wine, beautifully appointed river view accommodations, offshore excursions, airport transfers and onboard gratuities and Wifi.
