Uniworld expands in Asia and adds new ship on Mekong River

Uniworld Boutique River Cruises introduces a new ship, River Saigon, and expands their Asia river cruises and tours in 2012, so travelers can experience this destination in world-class style and comfort for which Uniworld is known. With over 100 departures on 8 itineraries ranging from 10 to 24 days in China, Vietnam, and Cambodia, travelers can unlock the richness and vast diversity of this region. From the Great Wall of China to Cambodia’s Angkor Wat, from Spiritual Tibet to bucolic Vietnam, and from the mighty Yangtze to the languid Mekong, Uniworld offers something for everyone.

Travelers can select from one of Uniworld’s two new itineraries including a 15-day “Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong” River Cruise and Tour from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi; or a 24-day “Grand Asia & the Mekong” River Cruise and Tour from Beijing to Hanoi. Or opt to travel from Beijing to Shanghai for Uniworld’s re-imagined 10-day land-based tour of “Classic China,” or a 12-day “Splendors of China & the Yangtze” River Cruise and Tour.

For those traveling to Vietnam and Cambodia, Uniworld will launch in January 2012, a new beautiful ship, River Saigon, sailing the Mekong River with a maximum capacity of up to 60 guests. With a ship so intimate, travelers can experience this captivating region up close and in style with all the amenities and conveniences needed for the most comfortable trip possible.
