2021 BOUTIQUE RIVER CRUISES



LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE on the world’s best luxury river cruise line.

1


YOU DESERVE THE BEST. It’s hard to grasp how much our world has changed in such a short time. While every new cruise year brings about changes, 2021 will be especially different. We have all been forever imprinted with memories of sheltering away from our friends and family, taking extraordinary measures to stay healthy and longing to return to the things we love—like travel. Experiences like this test our strength and our resilience. Through it all, one thing hasn’t changed—our passion for bringing you the best. Our guests are at the heart of everything we do. Our staff is committed to giving you an unparalleled travel experience, both onboard and onshore—one that is not only luxurious and memorable but also protects your health and safety while you are in our trusted hands. As a family-owned, debt-free company, we’re able to weather the most difficult of times without sacrificing our high standards. We have always operated our cruises with stringent safety and sanitation protocols on each and every one of our ships, and we will continue to do so. Annually, our crew renews their health and safety training, a program that has resulted in an immaculate health and safety record. With the support of an outside consultant, we have enhanced our protocols to ensure we protect the health and safety of our guests—and we are committed to doing even more. We are pushing forward and striving for continued excellence in 2021. I’m delighted to share three key highlights with you: with our Egypt itinerary more popular than ever, we have added a second ship on the Nile River; our highly coveted Peruvian Amazon itinerary will have additional dates for 2021; and (what I’m most excited about) a partnership with Golden Eagle Luxury Trains adds two new itineraries that incorporate cruise, land and train travel. These new Cruise & Rail itineraries are experiences unlike any other! With the option of a 12-day or 14day tour, these journeys will take you through Italy on the Po River aboard our newest Super Ship, S.S. La Venezia, before your transfer to a luxury train for a ride through Switzerland, Austria, Slovakia and Liechtenstein. These five countries, and their sweeping landscapes, will take your breath away. We all believe in the power of travel to open borders, connect cultures and drive local economies. This is only a moment in time, and we will push through and be better for it. I am so thankful and humbled to be back on the rivers with you. Warmest regards,

Ellen Bettridge PRESIDENT & CEO

You Deserve The Best


Why a river cruise? TRULY IMMERSIVE & ALL-INCLUSIVE Dine on a medley of five-star, locally-sourced cuisine, accompanied by included premium spirits and wine. From airport transfers to immersive excursions, every detail is taken care of. BOUTIQUE SHIPS Floating boutique hotels purposefully designed with every luxury and comfort in mind. With many public spaces onboard, and an average capacity of 130 guests, there’s plenty of room to socialize with others or just relax by yourself. COMMITMENT TO HEALTH & SAFETY The small size and high crew-to-guest ratios of our ships mean they are thoroughly cleaned regularly and often. Traveling by river means you are always close to land, allowing for immediate access to shoreside resources.

HISTORY OF HOSPITALITY EXCELLENCE. The story of our guiding visionary. From the moment you step onboard our one-of-a-kind award-winning ships, you notice the Uniworld difference. The spirit of hospitality that follows you your entire journey is the result of our guiding visionary, Bea Tollman. Bea is the creative mind behind our luxury, floating boutique hotel experience and her personal touches can be found everywhere—from the distinct design of our ships, the recipes for our locally sourced cuisine and the unmatched staff attentiveness. She has been honored for a lifetime of achievement in hospitality, including an induction into the British Travel and Hospitality Hall of Fame. We’re proud to follow her commitment to luxury.

s. I knew that there "I wanted some thing different for our guests. was this vision inside of me and I set out to create it. " – Bea

DESIGNED TO INSPIRE Bea has helped design our ships to reflect the rivers they cruise on, with bespoke themes, color palettes, original art and personally selected furnishings. Step onboard one of our floating boutique hotels and get a sense of her heart and love of hospitality in every room.

A NOURISHED PALATE Much of the attention to detail you’ll find onboard took root in the kitchen. A temporary solution to help her husband, Stanley Tollman, with their first hotel paved the way for a life in food, later translating into the many delicious dishes and culinary feats that have become a cornerstone for Red Carnation Hotels and Uniworld River Cruises alike.

A SPIRIT OF SERVICE To this very day, Bea remains hands-on. Over the years, she’s instilled many of her core values into how we interact with our guests. Whether it’s remembering exactly how you like your cocktail prepared, ending every exchange with a cheerful grin or surprising you with a thoughtful treat, Bea and her family have created a legacy of providing unforgettable experiences.

FOLLOWING IN THE CREATIVE FOOTSTEPS of The Red Carnation Hotel Collection. Boutique hospitality, unmatched service and a dedication to going above and beyond for our guests are deep-rooted in our DNA—we’re the only cruise line to also own and operate a collection of luxury boutique hotels. Uniworld is modeled after our sister company, the five-star RED CARNATION HOTELS, and we’ve been able to tap into their more than 100 years of experience and bring their knowledge and expertise to the rivers. Thanks to their words of wisdom, we employ our own full-time staff, both onboard and onshore, and don’t outsource any elements of your cruise to third parties. When you travel with Uniworld, you know exactly what you’ll get, each and every time.

THE MOST PERSONAL SERVICE compliments of the most tenured crew on the rivers. We treat our staff and guests like family—a philosophy instilled in our company culture as a family-owned business. This philosophy, rooted in the Tollman family’s long-standing involvement in the hospitality industry, is the driving force behind our guest-centric atmosphere. And it’s the reason you leave your cruise feeling like part of the family. It’s also why each detail carries the same weight. “NO REQUEST IS TOO LARGE, NO DETAIL IS TOO SMALL” comes to life in the interactions we share with our guests. Your river cruise is focused on a singular goal: to give you the unique and unforgettable experience you seek, with the personalized, industry-leading service you deserve. Every guest receives our full attention, with an incredible guest-to-staff ratio of 2.3 to 1 (one of the best on the rivers), unmatched attention to detail and in-suite butlers trained to the same standards of excellence required by Buckingham Palace—because everything worth doing, is worth doing well.

OUR COMMITMENT TO ELEVATING LUXURY RIVER CRUISING. What it takes to elevate luxury river cruising. Ten years ago we redefined the term “unsurpassed luxury” when we launched the first Super Ship—the S.S. Antoinette. With custom décor that brought the Rhine region to life onboard, this ship completely transformed the standards of river cruising. We continue to launch new Super Ships with each passing year as we work towards transforming our entire fleet, delivering the absolute best experience in river cruising. Our Super Ships are the new picture of elevated luxury. It’s the one-of-a-kind design that Uniworld represents, with more suites, more dining options and more luxurious tiny noticeable touches throughout. In 2020, we added four new Super Ships to our fleet—S.S. Sphinx in Egypt, Mekong Jewel in Vietnam and Cambodia, S.S. La Venezia in Italy and S.S. São Gabriel in Portugal. This commitment to always operating the best ships on the rivers is why we’re consistently voted the World’s Best Luxury River Cruise Line. It’s a commitment we’ve had since the beginning—and one we’ll always have. Here’s to another year of delivering the World’s Best in river cruising. We’ll see you onboard.

S.S. BEATRICE S.S. BEATRICE ELATES AND ASTOUNDS. The designers from Red Carnation Hotels worked their creative magic on River Beatrice, transforming her into the dazzling S.S. Beatrice for 2018. This jewel of a ship graces the waters of the DANUBE RIVER, boasting yacht-like finishes and splashes of nautical hues throughout, a stunning lobby featuring elegant mirrors, marble floors, a white Murano chandelier with blue shades and a grand staircase made of nickel and black iron. The design inspiration began with 14th-century blue and white Chinese export porcelain and the Dutch derivation known as Delftware, merging ancient tradition with the modernity of blonde wood and polished nickel accents—resulting in an interior that is luxurious

Beatrice creates enhanced dining and culinary experiences by offering four unique venues, all inspired by famous Austrian composers.

S.S. MARIA THERESA SHE EXUDES THE SOPHISTICATION AND RESPLENDENCE OF ROYALTY. This splendidly elegant ship cruises along the DANUBE RIVER boasting ultra-luxurious accommodations fit for Empress Maria Theresa herself. As a tribute to the only female ruler in the House of Habsburg, a 10-foot-tall, specially commissioned portrait of S.S. MARIA THERESA’S namesake hangs in the twostory foyer. She was voted “Best New River Ship” by Cruise Critic in her maiden season, and for good reason. Thoughtful personal touches abound onboard, including décor inspired by the time period in which Maria Theresa reigned. Her interiors exhibit colorful silk-clad walls, a Murano glass chandelier

S.S. ANTOINETTE LAYER UPON LAYER OF LUXURIOUS FEATURES STRETCH IN EVERY DIRECTION. The bright and vibrant S.S. ANTOINETTE sails the RHINE RIVER, with accents that will leave you speechless. Take her Venetian glass mirrors, stunning marble bathrooms, enclosed pool, onboard cinema dressed in vintage movie posters, L’Orangerie Sky Lounge and gorgeous two-story foyer, for example. The foyer’s focal point? A stunning 10-foot Strauss Baccarat chandelier that once hung in Central Park’s famous Tavern on the Green restaurant.

2011 I N A U G U R AT I O N 152 G U E S T S | 59 S TA F F

S.S. Antoinette’s dining room boasts a custom ceramic mural designed by artist Jane du Rand. Her one-of-a-kind murals adorn the walls of hotels, spas, public spaces and our personal favorite—several of our ships. Step into the ship’s Restaurant de Versailles for a look at her mural, which takes us back to the grand gardens of French châteaux in the 1700s. Jane du Rand lives by the motto that “everything worth doing is worth doing well” and S.S. Antoinette embodies exactly that.

S.S. JOIE DE VIVRE THE CRÈME DE LA CRÈME OF NORTHERN FRANCE. S.S. JOIE DE VIVRE effortlessly celebrates all things French, bringing “Paris into color”—as Stanley Tollman, founder of The Travel Corporation, affectionately noted in his original design brief. Toni Tollman, the creative visionary behind Red Carnation Hotels and Uniworld, along with the rest of our design team, drew inspiration from the elegance of Paris from the 1930s to the 1950s, weaving in playful accents reminiscent of her favorite French designers. This fantastically French Super Ship is truly the embodiment of the “joy of living” as she cruises along the SEINE RIVER. S.S. Joie de Vivre’s attention to detail is unmatched, with fabrics and upholstery from the Tollman’s historical archives, as well as some of the most esteemed design houses in Europe. Throughout the ship, there’s a number of original linen posters dating between the 1860s and 1940s, and Le Salon Toulouse showcases 64 pictures depicting Paris in 1861 in a series known as “Paris dans sa Splendeur.” Additional artwork throughout the ship includes works by Georges Goursat, a famed cartoonist from the early 1900s and one of Toni Tollman’s favorites.

S.S. BON VOYAGE A SHIP THAT PERSONIFIES THE BRILLIANCE OF BORDEAUX. After undergoing an extensive stem-to-stern transformation, River Royale reemerged along the DORDOGNE AND GARONNE RIVERS as S.S. BON VOYAGE for the 2019 sailing season. This brand-new ship was inspired by the region’s historic surroundings and the incredible wine and gastronomy that Southwest France is known for—complete with a design scheme that showcases just that, as well as several enhanced culinary experiences onboard. As a nod to France’s culinary prowess, S.S. Bon Voyage introduced two new dining venues, La Brasserie and Le Café du Soleil (known as La Belle Étoile at night). Nestled discreetly at the ship’s bow, La Brasserie

2019 T R A N S F O R M AT I O N 2006 I N A U G U R AT I O N 124 G U E S T S | 50 S TA F F

pays homage to Paris’ renowned Bouillon Pigalle restaurant, with its charming red and white décor, and serves classic French fare. Le Café du Soleil flanks the newly installed infinity pool, offering up poolside service and open-air cooking demonstrations from specialist chefs. Her stunning lobby reveals polished wood with subtle brass detailing that complements the handcrafted balustrade. Le Salon Champagne boasts specially commissioned sofas and jewel-colored stripes that echo the ones in Yves Saint Laurent’s very own home. It’s a ship so stunning, you may never want to leave.

S.S. SÃO GABRIEL A SHIP AS SCENIC AS PORTUGAL’S DRAMATIC DOURO RIVER VALLEY. In 1497, Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama set out with a fleet of warships on his first voyage to India. His ship’s name? São Gabriel. And much like his lead vessel, this new ship on the DOURO RIVER was built for those culturally curious enough to explore new horizons. The S.S. SÃO GABRIEL will set sail with the same fervor that da Gama’s ship did on its quest to find an ocean route between Europe and Asia. The newest ship on the Douro will debut with more space, more suites and a higher crew-to-guest ratio than her predecessor, Queen Isabel. With the addition of butler service onboard and two dining venues—a restaurant and an alfresco option on the top deck— Portugal’s first Super Ship will never cease to amaze you.

Should you become injured or sick during your vacation, the plan will reimburse you up to $50,000 for necessary medical expenses for up to one (1) year from the date of your accident or illness or emergency dental treatment incurred during your tour. As many health insurance plans do not typically respond to medical expenses incurred outside of the U.S., we encourage you to review yours to confirm you have such coverage prior to your vacation.

PASSPORT/VISA

A valid passport is required to travel on all Uniworld programs. Passports must be valid for at least six (6) months after the scheduled return date of the trip. You should check with your Travel Advisor or the U.S. Consulate Service for information regarding necessary visas and other documentation. Non-U.S. citizens must contact the appropriate consular office for entry requirements pertaining to your trip. Any visa(s) or other documentation required for a particular itinerary is the sole responsibility of the guest. Due to government-imposed security/immigration measures, passport information and emergency contact information are required for all passengers prior to release of documentation.


As a courtesy, Uniworld’s website, www.uniworld.com in the “Already Booked” section, offers a link to a visa service company where you can obtain additional information. Obtaining and carrying these documents is your sole responsibility; Uniworld will not be responsible for advising and/or obtaining required travel documentation for any passenger, or for any delays, damages and/or losses, including missed portions of your trip, related to improper travel documentation.   For entry to Tibet, a visa is not necessary, but an entry permit is required for all passport holders. Uniworld will provide a Tibet Entry Permit while on the tour for all guests. In order for Uniworld to properly arrange for your Tibet Entry Permit in advance, please email a copy of the photo page of your passport as well as a copy of your China visa to asiadepartment@uniworld.com no later than forty-five (45) days prior to departure. Please include your name and Uniworld booking number in your email.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS TRAVEL PROTECTION PLAN

Uniworld makes every effort to ensure that your trip is safe and enjoyable. However, situations beyond our control may occur. Keep in mind that your health plan coverage for a stay outside the U.S. may be limited. We recommend you obtain a travel protection plan. Uniworld offers a comprehensive travel protection plan.

ITINERARY CHANGES

You can count on the value of Uniworld’s experience and regional knowledge to make sure you enjoy your cruise-tour even when conditions beyond our control occur. The very nature of a river, its sources, and networks of bridges and locks, means that there will be times when weather or other conditions in a region require Uniworld to make adjustments and/or modifications to an itinerary. Although every effort will be made to keep itineraries, vessels, and hotels as they are shown in the brochure, Uniworld reserves the right to substitute itineraries, hotels or vessels. In such cases, we will do everything we can to make sure the locations visited, the excursions taken and the hotels or vessels offered are similar to the ones originally planned. Any changes to itineraries will not result in eligibility for a refund. Itineraries are subject to change without notice and may need to be altered specifically because of water levels, wind factors, or other conditions. Guests who choose to cancel or interrupt their cruise or cruise-tour due to an itinerary change will be subject to our standard Cancellation Policy.

ADVANCED, CANCELED, OR DELAYED SAILING

Uniworld reserves the right to cancel, advance, postpone or modify scheduled departure, return or itinerary dates, as well as locations, events and schedules, and may, but is not obligated to, substitute, vary, alter, reschedule, cancel and/or relocate any accommodations, vessels, modes of transportation and other aspects of the vacation. Uniworld is authorized to take these actions due to causes or circumstances of any kind or nature beyond Uniworld’s control, or causes or circumstances within Uniworld’s control that Uniworld deems to make such actions appropriate. Uniworld will not be liable for cancelation, delay, rescheduling or other adjustment or impact to a departure or itinerary, or other aspects of the vacation brought about due to force majeure or other circumstances beyond its control that prevent or interfere with any aspect of the cruise-tour, including governmental and administrative actions. The company’s only liability will be to provide Passengers the amount it has received for the Contract in the form of a Future Travel Credit or at Uniworld’ s discretion a refund of monies paid to Uniworld in connection with such cruise-tour. Uniworld is not responsible for other travel arrangements affected due to our cancelations or changes and is not liable for any cancelation or change costs or penalties incurred on other travel arrangements, including air tickets.

STATEROOM CHANGES

If due to unexpected technical or other unforeseen circumstances, it becomes necessary to change a guest’s stateroom onboard, any change to stateroom category will result in eligibility for a refund equal to the fare difference between the category booked and the category of relocation.

EXTENSIONS/LAND TOURS

Uniworld reserves the right to reschedule and/or cancel land extensions or land tours if the minimum number of participants (20 people) is not met or for safety reasons. If you, as the Passenger, choose to cancel your pre- or post-cruise extension one hundred and nineteen (119) days or less before departure, then please refer to the Cancellation Policy section for the applicable cancellation policy and penalties that will be applied.

SECURITY

Security is a major concern to all of us and the global situation is constantly changing. Events around the world, coupled with the “Travel Advisories” put out by various governments, may at times necessitate changes to the accommodations and itinerary or even trip cancelation. Risks are involved in travel to any country that may experience security difficulties. You must accept these risks and assume responsibility for your own travel decisions.
