Why the road best travelled is a river “I can’t say enough about Uniworld. Although many of the river cruises have the same itinerary, Uniworld is distinguished by the commitment to quality, professionalism, and service in all respects. Many organisations strive for quality, but Uniworld achieves it consistently, and does it with a spirit of fun and enthusiasm that is evident in the staff, food, staterooms, and support. As an educator and consultant, I find this impressive. I recommend Uniworld without hesitation to anyone considering river cruises.” - April Flanagan, 8 November 2013 “Legendary Rhine & Moselle”

THE PERFECT JOURNEY BEGINS ALONG THE RIVER A stately castle appears across the water and suddenly your day-to-day concerns and seem very far away. Now, you’re in another world—a world where the scenery of charming hillside villages and old-world cities changes day after day; where you’ll unpack once, sleep on the finest sheets and bedding, dine on a parade of culinary delights and comfort foods, and find yourself unabashedly pampered. River cruising is without a doubt the most relaxing and stylish way to travel, and why many agree that “the road best travelled is a river” and why that river is “best travelled with Uniworld.”

INTIMATE SHIPS On a Uniworld boutique river cruise, we won’t just take you from here to there—we’ll take you away. Each Uniworld ship is uniquely built for your maximum comfort with plenty of public spaces for socialising and connecting with your fellow travellers, your staff, and your surroundings. And because Uniworld has an average capacity of just 130 guests, you can move freely through your ship if you would like to find a handsome nook or alcove for some quiet reading or river-gazing. With the highest staff-to-guest ratio in the river cruise industry, the attention and personal touch provided on a Uniworld ship is unmatched. From the moment you step onboard your luxury ship and your luggage is whisked to your stateroom, you can feel confident knowing that you’ll always be met with gracious, generous, and attentive hospitality. CONVENIENCE ABOUNDS Your river cruise offers easygoing comfort and convenient access to the sights of Europe and Russia—from charming squares to magnificent cathedrals and bustling marketplaces. Dock in the heart of great capitals and fairytale villages that are unreachable by ocean ships. There’s no waiting in long lines to get on or off the ship; no need to tender into ports. When you travel with Uniworld, the pioneer in luxury river cruising, be assured your experience will exceed all expectations.

LET THE TRANQUIL AND PEACEFUL WATERWAYS OF EUROPE BE YOUR PATHWAY FOR THE JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME.

Each member of our dedicated and highly trained staff embraces our philosophy of “no request too large, no detail too small” and embodies a home-awayfrom-home approach to not only meeting your expectations but exceeding them. WELCOMING WARMTH

“WITHOUT EXCEPTION, ALL OF THE CREW HAVE ONE GOAL AND THAT IS TO MAKE EACH PASSENGER FEEL LIKE ROYALTY.” - Alan Carter, 4 July 2013 “Paris & the Heart of Europe”

We make our guests feel welcome in myriad ways, the most important of which is by getting to know you and being aware of your personal preferences. Onboard your Uniworld ship, you can expect your server to remember that you like your eggs prepared “sunny-side up” with crispy bacon at breakfast and the bartender to know you prefer your favourite drink with that little extra twist. Don’t be surprised to find the Captain stopping by your dinner table to continue the conversation you began the day before, or our staff remembering you like jasmine tea during the afternoon in your suite. Such kind attention lets you know how much we value you and how dedicated we are to providing exactly what you desire, exactly when you want it. You can expect all those things and more when you join us on a Uniworld cruise. Here, “well trained” is not just a phrase, but a philosophy.

Your English-speaking crew takes pride in seeing you smile. You’ll feel their genuine warmth and sincerity. And for a few precious days, the world will revolve around you, and we would have it no other way. On a Uniworld boutique river cruise ship, travel to each destination in a manner of unequalled style and comfort, and at every turn, be reminded of what makes Uniworld matchless and memorable. A PROUD AND RICH TRADITION OF SERVICE Uniworld is a proud member of The Travel Corporation, a family-owned and passionately run business for over four generations and nine decades.

Inspiring travel your way

FREEDOM OF CHOICE AND FLEXIBILITY

GET READY TO “GO ACTIVE”

GO AHEAD—TAKE IT EASY

Our included excursions offer you a variety of choices designed to introduce you to Europe and Russia’s most memorable attractions. But what if you’ve already explored many of these popular attractions? With our Choice Is Yours options, we provide alternative sites of exploration guaranteed to please even the most experienced traveller. From Vienna to Amsterdam, and Paris to Avignon, you’ll be treated to options that help you personalise your experience even more.

In select locations, join us on our guided Go Active hiking and biking excursions led by local naturalists or sports guides. They provide the perfect way to stay fit, all while learning about local history, flora, and fauna. Care to explore the great outdoors on your own? Then take one of our complimentary bicycles out for a spin. Prefer to stay onboard to exercise? We offer a well-equipped fitness centre, as well as private training lessons and yoga.

Along the rivers, life moves at a slower pace. We took that lifestyle to heart when we created our guided Gentle Walking excursions. They offer the chance to explore at a more relaxed pace should you wish for more time to linger, to poke your head in a few more charming shops, or to meditate on a beautiful painting. And if you simply wish to relax onboard, pamper yourself in our Serenity River Spa™.

To get a deeper understanding of the heart and soul of a region and its people, we created our exclusive guided Do as the Locals Do and Village Day programs. “Do as the Locals Do” provides authentic encounters offering guests the chance to walk in the shoes of local citizens, uncover locals’ favourite places to meet, and taste beloved regional food. Our exclusive “Village Day” program provides a similar up-close look at rural European and Russian towns, with visits to local homes and workshops.

Picture yourself walking through Germany’s Castle Kleinheubach alongside members of the royal house of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg, the family who has owned this castle for nearly 300 years. Hear insider stories before enjoying a wine tasting. Be entertained by modern-day nobility at an exclusive cocktail reception hosted by a reallife princess at Austria’s Artstetten Castle, or be treated to a special evening opening—without the crowds—in Venice’s historic St. Mark’s Basilica. These are only a sample of the exclusive excursions you’ll experience with Uniworld.

On every Uniworld cruise, be treated to a variety of culinary delights, so you can savour the wonderful flavours of the regions you visit. Highlights include: savouring saffron truffles made by the only saffron grower in Austria, tasting Germany’s legendary Riesling at Castle Vollrads, enjoying a Trappist Monastery cheese and beer tasting, or being treated to a home-hosted lunch in Croatia.

Indulge your wanderlust For centuries, aperitifs and digestifs have been used to heighten the pleasure of a gourmet meal. Uniworld’s carefully crafted pre- and post-cruise land packages are the travel equivalent of these culinary mainstays: they whet the appetite for the adventure to come or provide a fitting finale to the journey you’ve just concluded.

EXCEPTIONAL VALUE Whether you’re exploring Amsterdam or Vienna, Paris or Prague, you’ll stay at superior first-class hotels conveniently located near the major sights. What’s more, you’ll enjoy the expert assistance of a local Uniworld host who is there to make your stay as pleasant as possible. And because the price of your extension includes special excursions and transfers to or from your Uniworld cruise, you’ll know you’re getting an exceptional value. MORE TO EXPLORE Uniworld’s optional extensions offer an ideal combination of hosted excursions and on-yourown exploration. Early in your stay, your local expert will introduce you to the best the city has to offer on a carefully crafted excursion, after which you’ll have plenty of leisure time to indulge your own private passions. Whatever your pleasure—art, architecture, history, horticulture, regional cuisine, or local handicrafts—your host will save you valuable time and money by directing you to the can’t-miss spots and off-the-beaten-path gems only a local would know about.

EXCITING DESTINATIONS INCLUDE: The Golden Age of Amsterdam: Glide along waterways built during the Dutch golden age and admire the stately houses erected with the riches of the Dutch East India trade. This lively city blends the very best of the past with a modern-day entrepreneurial spirit. Romantic Budapest: This enchanting city situated on the banks of the Danube offers a vibrant mix of East and West, medieval and modern. Paris, the “City of Light”: This beautiful city along the Seine continues to capture the imagination of the world. Bohemian Prague: Beauty and drama abound in the “City of Spires.” With its eclectic mix of architecture and old-world charm, Prague is a breathtaking fairytale city. Graceful Vienna: Opulent home of the Habsburgs, Vienna captures both the imagination and the ear. Palaces invite a visit, while music halls ring with the works of famous composers. Fascinating Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania: Experience the flavours of the Baltic capitals—Tallinn, Riga, and Vilnius. Taste an exhilarating blend of history and the vibrant promise of tomorrow.

The waterways of southwest France wind their way through some of the most beautiful countryside in Europe. This land is as fruitful as it is lovely: dozens of prestigious wine appellations line the rivers, while the region’s historic farms produce world-renowned truffles and creamy goat cheeses.

THE DUTCH AND BELGIAN WATERWAYS

THE VENICE LAGOON AND PO RIVER The Venice Lagoon is an enchanting place— a crescent-shaped inlet on which the city’s glorious palazzi and cathedrals seem to float, as if by magic. The nearby Po River is the lifeline of both historic cities and charming fishing villages alike. THE DOURO RIVER

The Seine River flows through the heart of Paris and continues meandering through the inspiring countryside to Normandy and Rouen.

The UNESCO Douro River Valley is one of Europe’s most unspoiled areas. Over the centuries, the Douro has carved a spectacular and scenic valley endowed with panoramas stretching from stately Porto (Portugal’s  centre of Port wine production) to Spain.

THE RHÔNE AND SAÔNE RIVERS

THE VOLGA RIVER

The Rhône rises high in Switzerland and flows southward into France where it joins with its principal tributary, the Saône River. Inspiring landscapes of sunflowers, cypress-lined avenues, and bountiful vineyards bless the riverbanks of these breathtaking rivers.

The Volga is Europe’s longest river, and it has played a significant role in the lives of Russians throughout the centuries. It is referred to in Russian folklore as “Mother Volga,” as nearly half of Russia’s population lives near it, and Russia’s greatest cities can be found along it.

Aegean Sea

Ionian Sea Iron Gates

The Rhine is Germany’s longest river, and it is in Germany where it encounters some of its most important and beautiful tributaries, including the Moselle and the Main, as well as the 106mile Rhine-Main-Danube Canal, which joins the Rhine and Danube together. The Danube is Europe’s second longest river, and like the Rhine, the Danube has played a significant role throughout history and has inspired artists, poets, and musicians for centuries.

THE SEINE RIVER

Giurgiu

SERBIA

THE GARONNE, DORDOGNE, AND GIRONDE RIVERS

The Netherlands and Belgium comprise the land around the Rhine Delta and the North Sea. With the help of the Zuider Zee, these regions have prospered and have given way to countless canals crisscrossing through these countries.

Uniworld presents a veritable banquet of these wonders on our 13-day “Splendours of Northern Italy, Venice, Florence & Rome” itinerary. You’ll get an insider’s look at all the “must see” sights of Venice, Florence, and Rome, including the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Basilica, the Coliseum, and the Vatican. You’ll have access to delightful enotecas and Tuscan wine estates and be invited to indulge in buttery olive oils and luscious Italian desserts. Visit enchanting Verona—the home of literature’s most famous lovers, Romeo and Juliet; Bologna, Italy’s culinary capital; Padua, a great centre of learning; Ravenna, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site; and Ferrara, “Italy’s best kept secret.” For those who may not have as much time, we offer an 8-day, cruise-only “Venice & the Gems of Northern Italy” itinerary onboard the River Countess—Travel + Leisure’s highest rated cruise ship in the world.

Portugal & Spain’s Douro River THE UNESCO-DESIGNATED DOURO RIVER VALLEY BOASTS LOVELY VISTAS, STORIED TOWNS, AND A CELEBRATED WINEMAKING HISTORY.

Rising in Spain and reaching the Atlantic Ocean in Porto, the Douro River carved out the dramatic Douro River Valley over many millennia. Rich with history and vinicultural delights, this is the most unspoiled UNESCO-designated area on the continent—and it’s yours to explore with Uniworld. Vineyards and small farms called quintas cling to the hillsides of the river valley, creating a spectacular backdrop to one of Europe’s most pristine regions and to Port country—the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. Choose from two spectacular itineraries that celebrate the beauty of these regions: an 11-day “Portugal, Spain & the Douro River Valley” or the new 13-day “Jewels of Spain, Portugal & the Douro River.” Both programs offer exploration of bustling Lisbon; Coimbra, the birthplace of Portuguese kings; postcard-perfect Porto; and Salamanca, Spain, dubbed the “Golden City” for its glowing sandstone buildings. For those who want to experience more of Spain, our new itinerary offers three nights in the lively capital city of Spain—Madrid—with a chance to enjoy its many majestic and iconic treasures, as well as experience its world-famous nightlife.

Russia’s Volga, Neva & Svir Rivers THE VOLGA RIVER, EUROPE’S LARGEST WATERWAY, HOLDS A SPECIAL PLACE IN RUSSIAN HISTORY AND IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE.

An important aquatic “highway” since medieval times, the Volga River has long been a major route of trade, settlement, and conquest. Peter the Great sailed along the Volga from Moscow to St. Petersburg some 300 years ago on a quest to bring Russia out of the Dark Ages. Now it’s your turn to discover the rich history that lies along Russia’s waterways. Explore Moscow, home to Red Square, the Kremlin, and the iconic, onion-domed St. Basil’s Cathedral. Cruise along the Golden Ring to some of Russia’s most beautiful cities, including Uglich and Yaroslavl, known for their white-stone churches. Visit UNESCO-designated Kizhi Island and watch the past spring to life in the re-created village of Mandrogi. Spend three glorious days in enchanting St. Petersburg, where Catherine’s Palace and the Hermitage reveal the royal history of Russia. From extraordinary imperial cities to tucked-away hamlets with old-world charm, this tour is bursting with beauty. Come discover the “Imperial Waterways of Russia” with Uniworld.

WHOLE WORLD Water is a campaign designed to unite the hospitality and

tourism industry with the goal of raising $1 billion to eradicate this problem. More than a fundraising initiative, this is a revolutionary way of doing business. By partnering with WHOLE WORLD Water, Uniworld has committed to removing all disposable water bottles from all company-owned ships. We provide our guests with their own personal water bottle to take with them on excursions and back home, so no plastic water bottles are used. Additionally, Uniworld will donate $1 per guest on company-owned ships to WHOLE WORLD Water—100% of which will be used to provide safe drinking water to communities around the world. SUSTAINABLE RIVER CRUISING PROJECT Uniworld has worked closely with TreadRight and The Travel Foundation, a United-Kingdombased charity that shares our socio-environmental values, for the past three years. Together we have developed the first-of-its-kind Environmental Sustainability for River Cruising guide, offering best practices to river cruise operators worldwide on how to operate with as little environmental impact as possible. The guide is designed to support the river cruise tourism industry around the world in working towards a sustainable future by identifying strategies that reduce water and energy use and waste generation on river cruise ships.

Advanced, Cancelled, or Delayed Sailing: Uniworld reserves the right to cancel, advance or postpone any scheduled sailing date and may, but is not obligated to, substitute hotels or vessels. Uniworld shall not be liable for any loss to you by reason of any such cancellation, advancement or postponement. In the event of cancellation by Uniworld, your sole right of recourse shall be to obtain a refund of monies paid to Uniworld in connection with such cruise or cruise/tour. Cruise and Cruise/Tours Prices: Prices are based on costs, charges, tariffs, rates, prices, taxes, levies and exchange rates as at 12/15/2013. Should the total cruise and cruise/tour price increase by more than 10%, passengers will have the right to cancel their cruise and cruise/tour within seven (7) days notification of the surcharge without penalty. No surcharges in respect of cost or currency fluctuations will be made once payment for the deposit of your cruise or cruise/tour is received. This does not apply to fuel surcharges and any taxes, charges or levies imposed by any Government or their agencies. Cruise and Cruise/Tour Participation: Uniworld trips are exciting, relatively active vacations. While there will be plenty of time to relax, there will also be much to see and do. Your included excursions may require an extensive amount of walking over cobblestone streets, uneven pavement and sometimes steps, so please bring any issues regarding your health or mobility to the attention of Uniworld when making your booking as this could greatly impact your vacation experience. In addition, you should know that while river cruise/tour ships are spacious and elegant they may not have elevators. If you are disabled, a companion who will be responsible for providing any required assistance must accompany you, as Uniworld is unable to provide any individual assistance. Uniworld has sole discretion to decline the booking of any passenger whose condition may affect their own health, safety and enjoyment of that of other passengers. Additionally, Uniworld reserves its right to require a current passenger to end their trip for the aforesaid reasons. Uniworld do not recommend their tips for children under 8 years of ages. Itinerary Changes: You can count on the value of Uniworld’s experience and regional knowledge to make sure you enjoy your cruise and 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.
