Following the success of its 2012 Asia program, Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection (www.uniworldcruises.com.au) has launched its new 2013 Asia River Cruises and Tours brochure with an extended offering.
For holiday-makers the demand for Asia has increased dramatically over the past 12 months and as such Uniworld has seen a sellout of its 2012 season. To meet this phenomenal demand, the 5-star boutique river cruise company has extended its product offering in Asia for 2013 with the introduction of a brand new itinerary and three new ships to its fleet.
Joining the four expertly planned itineraries already running is the 10-day Impressions of China & the Yangtze. This new tour provides another unique way to explore this intriguing country and includes a 4-night cruise on the Yangtze River onboard the Century Legend and 5-nights in centrally located luxury hotels in Shanghai and Beijing.
When in China, guests will now have the chance to travel on the five-star Century Legend or Century Paragon. These two new state-of-the-art ships provide an unrivaled luxurious experience and offer a host of special VIP benefits available only for Uniworld guests. They both also feature an executive deck, gigantic indoor pool and spa area.
This year saw the introduction of two new destinations to the Asia program, Vietnam and Cambodia, to complement Uniworld’s rich offering in China. This has proved to be such a great success that the cruise liner will also be launching a sister ship to the River Saigon in 2013 called the River Orchid. Both vessels will offer the 15-dayTimeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia & Mekong operating between Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
To ensure Uniworld’s values are maintained both on and off the vessel, the award winning brand has implemented many features so that the experience off shore is as enjoyable and exclusive as onboard. Guests will be accommodated in elite, centrally located five-star hotels which provide a luxurious home base when they are off the ship.
Key hotels in China include the Ritz-Carlton Beijing and the Four Points by Sheraton, Lhasa. In Vietnam and Cambodia guests will enjoy accommodation in the Park Hyatt Saigon, Vietnam, the Intercontinental Hotel and Resorts Hanoi Westlake, Vietnam and the Victoria Angkor Resort & Spa, Cambodia.
The latest program showcases Uniworld’s commitment to offering the highest standard in river cruising with these new updates allowing guests to have a holiday of a life time.
