Uniworld Launches 2015 Europe Preview Brochure

April 11, 2014 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has released its 2015 Boutique River Cruises Europe & Russia Preview brochure featuring six new Six-Star, all-inclusive itineraries, a new Super Ship, an expansion of the shore excursion programme and new savings.

John Molinaro, General Manager Australia said “We’re excited to be adding six new all-inclusive itineraries to our Europe programme. Our Portugal itinerary has been increasing in popularity with Australian’s becoming aware of the beauty of the Douro River so we’ve added a second cruise/tour in the region. The 13-day Jewels of Spain, Portugal & the Douro River includes stops in two new destinations, the charming towns of Amarante and Lemego and three nights in the spectacular city of Madrid.” unnamed (4)

“Another new highlight is the Eastern European Explorer that cruises from Budapest to Bucharest over ten days. There are many interesting little towns along this stretch of the Danube and we wanted to be able to provide access to these. Our guests will enjoy shore excursions through places like Vidin in Romania that has become a thriving cultural hub with many creative types like artists and authors settling there.

“This month saw the inaugural sailing of our new Bordeaux cruise and next year we’ll combine this with theParis & Normandy and Burgundy & Provence cruise for a 22-day Ultimate France itinerary.”

A new Super Ship will be introduced to Uniworld’s award winning fleet in 2015 cruising four itineraries on the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers. Sister ship to the S.S. Antoinette and S.S. Catherine—two of the most luxurious vessels on the waterways of Europe – the elegant S.S. Maria Theresa will be no exception, offering Uniworld’s Six-Star experience. The sophisticated new ship will be named after the Great Empress Maria Theresa, who had a long reign spanning forty years in the 16th century.

“Our already expansive shore excursion programme will also be enhanced in 2015,” says Molinaro. “We design the programme to cater for all interests with the ‘Choice is Yours’, ‘Gentle Walking’, ‘Go Active’ tours as well as ‘Do as the Locals Do’ and ‘Village Day’ options that really delve into the local sites and lifestyle. Active guests may enjoy taking our complimentary bikes for a self-guided ride or join a guided bike tour in the Wachau Valley. Guests who have already seen Vienna’s key sites on a previous visit may take a tour with an art historian. In Nierstein, guests may enjoy taking a vineyard tractor ride followed by a naturalist-led vineyard hike and Riesling wine tasting.

“We think of our ships as floating luxury boutique hotels and the attention to service and detail is evident throughout the cruise. Next year, we’ll be spoiling our guests booked into Suites with complimentary in-suite Thai well-being treatments such as a body massage, hand and foot treatment or chair massage. We also offer personal training lessons and yoga throughout the cruise.”
