Uniworld Unveils All That’s New In 2024
Uniworld Boutique River Cruises has unveiled new offerings for 2024, including the addition of its newest ship — the S.S. Victoria, debuting in Amsterdam at the start of the season.
As well, the brand is extending its successful Cruise & Rail program with five new itineraries to Istanbul, Transylvania, the Swiss Alps and more. Additionally, guests can experience a new pre-cruise extension in South America, a second annual Rivers of the World Cruise visiting new countries, special early booking savings and more.
Ellen Bettridge, President and CEO of Uniworld, observed: “We’re always looking ahead and dreaming up ways to raise the bar and expand our offerings at Uniworld, and we’re excited to unveil what’s to come for 2024.”
Bettridge continued: “The Uniworld community is fueled by our shared wanderlust, which serves as our inspiration as we craft new experiences that reach different corners of the world. From a beautiful new ship and new Cruise & Rail journeys to our second world cruise and biggest itinerary yet, we’re looking forward to another incredible year of travel.”
Uniworld has added two new Super Ships to its fleet, the S.S. Victoria and S.S. Elisabeth, to begin sailing in Europe in 2024 and 2025 respectively. Uniworld has chartered the ships under a three year, bareboat charter agreement from Seaside Collection and will provide the signature Uniworld experience on existing itineraries with an all-Uniworld staff, as well as the brand’s trademark touches and amenities.
The S.S. Victoria will be the first to set sail in March, sailing a variety of itineraries currently operated and accommodating up to 110 guests in 55 luxurious suites and staterooms. The ship will debut in Amsterdam onboard the 8-day ‘Holland & Belgium at Tulip Time’ cruise through Belgium and The Netherlands, followed by the 8-day ‘Castles Along the Rhine’ itinerary from Basel to Amsterdam, then the 10-day ‘Magnificent Moselle and Rhine’ itinerary across two rivers, concluding the season with the 8-day holiday-themed ‘Belgium Holiday Markets’ sailing round-trip from Brussels.
Uniworld is running an Early Booking Savings Offer where guests who book and pay in full by Oct. 31 for select 2024 cruises can save an additional 10%.
In addition, Uniworld is offering a limited time sale on select 2024 Bucket List trips, when booked by Oct.31. Guests can save up to $4,000 on popular itineraries like ‘Ultimate France,’ ‘Peruvian Amazon & Machu Picchu Exploration’ ‘Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong’ and more.
Both offers are combinable with standard River Heritage Club, past guest member benefits.
