Uniworld Boutique River Cruises has confirmed its first sailing dates for this year. The company will resume cruising on June 20th, debuting its most recently transformed Super Ship S.S. La Venezia in Italy.
The 46-night trip will depart on May 20th, 2023, and take travellers to nine countries aboard five luxury ships combining both cruise and land.
Both trips will feature over-the-top, unique experiences both on and off the ship that have been curated by the Uniworld team, and all the details - including the destinations - will remain a surprise.
The Friends Reunited package is available on a number of departures across its programme including the Danube, Rhine, Seine, Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Venice lagoon.
Adapting to changing travel preferences in a post-Covid-19 era, Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has added a self-drive option to its 2021 cruises in France.
The collection is coming to market earlier than previous years in response to a recent upturn in search, bookings and brochure requests as travellers look to plan their next river cruise.
Following the decision, guests are being offered the opportunity to rebook travel dates to any 2020 or 2021 cruise or receive a future credit eligible to be used during the next 24 months.
Uniworld has launched a suit against MSC Cruise Management. The river cruise line is seeking reimbursement for damages incurred following a June 2nd incident in which a Uniworld ship, River Countess, was hit by MSC Opera, a large ocean ship.
