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.
Uniworld has announced that it will set sail in South America for the first time. The boutique river cruise collection will offer two new itineraries on the Peruvian Amazon aboard the Aria Amazon, set to debut in September.
Set to be the newest ship on the Douro River, the S.S. São Gabriel was designed to embody the beautiful Douro River Valley region through its décor and delectable food and wine.

After a meticulous eight-month renovation in the shipbuilding village of Druten in the Netherlands, the ship has now returned to France, setting sail on her maiden voyage.
