Uniworld showcases new destination, new itineraries

A new destination, new ships and new itineraries are all a part of Uniworld Boutique River Cruises’ additions for 2013 and 2014. In 2013, Uniworld will be the only North American river cruise line to offer river cruising in Italy, along the Po River and the Venice Lagoon. The Splendors of Italy combines a seven-night river cruise along the Po River and the Venice Lagoon with a two-night land stay in Florence and three nights in Rome. For those travellers who only wish to do the cruise portion, Uniworld will offer a cruise-only option for eight days, Venice & the Po River. Other new Europe itineraries include Grand Danube & Prague, a 14-night exploring seven countries, including five UNESCO Heritage Sites, and Highlights of Eastern Europe sailing through five countries — Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, and Serbia on an eight-day cruise. Also in 2013, Uniworld will continue its excursions on the Douro River in Portugal by introducing its latest luxury build, the Queen Isabel. For those wishing to travel to Asia, Uniworld will offer two new luxury ships in China, Century Legend and Century Paragon, on the Yangtze, and in Vietnam, the new River Orchid, on the Mekong. Uniworld’s focus in Asia is on five-star accommodations with superb onshore hotels, including Ritz Carlton and Shangri La properties. Looking beyond 2013, Uniworld will introduce two new state-of-the-art luxury boutique river cruise ships, the S.S. Alexandra and the S.S. Catherine, set to launch in spring of 2014. S.S. Alexandra, the sister ship to the S.S. Antoinette, will sail along the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, and the S.S Catherine, fashioned after Uniworld’s River Royale, will sail in France. (
