Now with a dedicated online Generations Family River Cruise Collection programme for 2016, Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is leading the charge for the growing trend of multi-generational travel. Responding to popular demand for those wishing to travel in ultimate luxury as a family, Uniworld has tripled the number of departures and itineraries within its multi-generational portfolio with each cruise created specifically with families in mind and demonstrating Uniworld’s commitment to delivering superior and innovative experiences for every generation.
John Molinaro, General Manager for Uniworld Australia, commented “We are extremely pleased to reveal this new programme of multi-generational all-inclusive cruises. Having pioneered family river cruising in 2009 with the expansion of our superior cruise collection, the demand for family cruises has since increased at an unprecedented rate and we’ve continued to expand our family offering, debuting all new all-inclusive departures in 2016.”
Molinaro continued, “Each of the carefully crafted itineraries has been designed to showcase the very best of Europe with a blend of adventure, historical insight and fun for all the family. It’s the perfect way to introduce young people to this fascinating continent.”
Uniworld’s all-inclusive multi-generational European cruises transform family holidays into eye-opening and enriching experiences. All family departures are conveniently scheduled during summer and winter school holidays, and young travellers between the ages of four and 18 receive 50 percent off when travelling with an adult. Uniworld offers a full range of included onshore excursions for young cruisers of all ages with optionals including a visit to the Lipizzaner stallions at Vienna’s Spanish Riding School, a hands-on pretzel making class in Wertheim and a guided white water rafting trip down the River Ilz. Onboard activities are equally varied and include baking classes, language sessions and behind-the-scenes tours of the ship. Every itinerary will also feature onboard visits from local junior guests who will educate travellers during “Curious Minds” cultural chats on the daily lives of the local people of Germany, Austria and Italy. Each cruise will also have two dedicated family hosts onboard for Junior (4-11 years) and Young Cruisers (12-18 years) to give parents the opportunity to enjoy romantic evenings or relax with a treatment at the Serenity River Spa.
Uniworld offers all-inclusive cruising, with meals and unlimited beverages onboard, complimentary use of bicycles, a dedicated family ambassador, gratuities, complimentary Wi-Fi, a PlayStation®- or Wii®-equipped game room, and transfers on departure and arrival days, providing families with the ideal, hassle-free, value-packed family vacation.
