THE BEST OF EUROPE Make your 2017 vacation the best one ever with a Uniworld Generations family river cruise. Simply step aboard, unpack once and let Uniworld chart a course for adventure, history and fun for everyone. With onboard and onshore experiences specially designed for each destination, there’s no better way to introduce young people to European travel. Imagine the memories you’ll make together!

Dedicated Family Hosts Two Family Hosts will supervise and coordinate all onboard activities for kids on every departure. This allows Junior Cruisers (ages 4-12) and Young Cruisers (ages 13-18) to have fun and make new friends while grown-ups enjoy time on their own.

Local Guides Onshore, our local guides are sensitive to the needs of children and teens and are trained to accommodate shorter attention spans, always making excursions as active and entertaining as possible.

Young Ambassadors Select itineraries feature onboard visits with local youngsters, a wonderful way to learn about new places and cultures. And during Uniworld’s “Curious Minds” cultural chats, young people can swap stories about their daily lives—school, sports, favorite activities, etc.—in a casual dinnertime atmosphere.

Fresh Perspectives River cruising with kids allows even well-traveled grownups to explore Europe in a fresh new way. Young travelers make great cultural liaisons, opening doors to unforgettable experiences. And they cruise for half price, too!

Young Citizens of the World We believe that international travel plants the seeds of greater understanding, tolerance and compassion for others, preparing young people to be global citizens and inspiring them to make the world a better place.

LIFE-SIZE CHESSBOARD ON SUN DECK

A VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY River cruise ships are unique and much different from large ocean-going vessels. One of the most intriguing things about them is their small size. Many rivers and canals in Europe are connected to each other through a series of concrete locks, and ships have to be able to fit inside each one. It can be a tight squeeze! River cruise ships can’t be too tall either, as they have to fit under bridges. The ships are ingeniously designed so that the top can collapse down if water levels are too high, which allows enough space for the ship to slip through. The rest of the time, you can have fun on deck as the ship sails under majestic bridges and through grand canals. Because of their small size, river cruise ships can go where larger ships can’t—this is one of the best things about river cruising! Our ships are floating hotels that carry you from town to town, with lots of wonderful things and beautiful scenery to see along the way. Once the ship arrives in port—often docking in the heart of historic cities and towns— you can step right off the ship and immediately start exploring.

TERMS & CONDITIONS We at Uniworld want to do everything we can to make sure your trip is enjoyable and worry-free. As part of that commitment, we are including the following information about your trip. Please read these pages carefully, as payment of a deposit represents an acceptance of the Uniworld Terms and Conditions.

YOUR TRIP Prices: Prices are per person, based on two people sharing a stateroom or hotel room, and are in US Dollars. Cruise and cruise/tour prices are based on costs, charges, tariffs, rates, taxes, levies and exchange rates as of March 7, 2016. Should the total cruise price increase by more than 10%, passengers will have the right to cancel their cruise within seven (7) days of 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. If you have purchased your transatlantic or transpacific air with Uniworld and/or you have purchased a cruise or cruise/tour package with Uniworld that includes air, your entire package price will be guaranteed at time of initial payment. Reservations and Payments: A deposit of at least $300 per person is required within 72 hours of reservation. Payment in full for the airfare booked in conjunction with a Uniworld cruise or cruise/tour is required at time of booking. Upon receipt of full air payment your airfare, tax and fuel surcharges are final. You may cancel your air within 24 hours of booking and receive a full refund of the cost of the airfare. Final payment is due at least ninety (90) days prior to departure. Reservations will be canceled if final payment is not received in a timely manner. Items Not Included in the Published Price: These include, but are not limited to, airfares to and from your destination except where specified; airport/departure taxes; cost of passport and visas; taxes; excess baggage charges; laundry; phone calls; all items of a personal nature; items not included on regular menus; expenses for additional sightseeing not specified in the itinerary; spirits & wine (please refer to complimentary beverage program), meals not detailed in the itinerary; and health, accident, baggage, or travel protection plans. Complimentary Beverage Program: All beverages are included for the cruise portion of your trip. Gratuities: Gratuities for onboard and onshore personnel (ship staff, crew, Cruise/Tour Manager, local experts, drivers) are included on all itineraries in Europe, both during the cruise or cruise/tour as well as on any pre- or postcruise land extensions. Cancellation Policy: We hope nothing will come between you and your Uniworld vacation. Should you need to cancel your booking or any portion of it, your cancellation must be received in writing. It will be effective on the date of receipt. Cancellation charges, per person and based upon the date of cancellation, are as follows: Cancellation Notice Received Before Tour Start Date

Cancellation Charges Per Person

90 days or more 89 – 60 days 59 – 30 days Less than 30 days No Show

$300 nonrefundable deposit 35% of the fare** 50% of the fare** 100% of the fare** 100% of the fare**

**Fare is defined as the cost of any cruise, land, or air element purchased from Uniworld. These cancellation fees are in addition to any cancellation fees that might be levied by your travel agent. There is no refund for unused services or for unused portions of the trip. For true worry-free travel, please see the Travel Protection Plan section of this brochure or visit uniworld.com. The Travel Protection Plan premium is nonrefundable once paid to Uniworld.

30

Deposit Protection program – 5 Year Guarantee: Any booking which was booked, deposited and then canceled ninety (90) days or more prior to departure will receive a credit of $300 per person. Credit is valid for up to 5 years from the date of cancellation. Credit cannot be used as deposit or insurance payment for a future booking, and will be applied only as credit. Only one credit per person can be used for each cruise or cruise/tour booked. Credit is combinable with all current Uniworld promotions.

Airport/Ship Transfers: If you purchase a Uniworld Air-Inclusive Vacation, you enjoy the special included convenience of scheduled group transfers between the airport and the ship/hotel on the day the cruise or cruise/tour begins, and between the ship/hotel and the airport on the day the cruise or cruise/tour ends. There may be a waiting period between transfers of 2 hours or more unless private car transfers have been purchased. Private car transfers are only available on the cruise or cruise/tour start/end dates.

Revision Fee: A fee of $30 per person, per transaction, will be charged for any passenger name change; cruise date change (within the same calendar year only) or itinerary change made to a reservation after the booking is confirmed unless the change increases the value of the booking. A passenger name change, cruise date change or itinerary change within ninety (90) days of departure will be treated as a cancellation subject to our cancellation policy, and a new reservation must be made. Cancellation fees will apply. Any revision to a booking may result in the loss of a confirmed airline reservation, change fees (refer to the Air Travel change fees section for details) and increased airfare in addition to any charges levied by the airlines, which will be payable by the Passenger.

Making Your Own Flight Arrangements: Should you elect to make your own flight arrangements, Uniworld will provide complimentary scheduled group transfers to/from the ship/hotel as long as your flights arrive/depart in the cruise or cruise/tour starting/ending cities in accordance with the dates shown in this brochure and your flight arrangements comply with the Transfer Guidelines as shown below. If your flight arrangements arrive/depart outside of these parameters, you must make your own transfer arrangements. Uniworld will not be responsible for late arrivals or missed transfers due to delayed or cancelled flights, for missed cruise/trip days, or for extra costs resulting from the foregoing. To qualify for transfers, it is required that flight information and pre-trip arrangements for all passengers making their own flight arrangements be given to Uniworld no later than forty-five (45) days prior to departure and conform to the Transfer Guidelines in the following box:

YOUR FLIGHT Airfare: Uniworld wants to help make your entire vacation smooth sailing, so we offer great values on airfares from most major cities in the US. Please contact your Travel Professional or Uniworld for the most up-to-date prices. As airfares and schedules are subject to availability, we encourage you to book early. Payment in full for the airfare booked in conjunction with a Uniworld cruise or cruise/tour is required at the time air is booked. Upon receipt of full air payment your airfare, tax and fuel surcharges are final. You may cancel your air within 24 hours of booking and receive a full refund of the cost of the airfare. We may issue your air ticket at any time after you book and pay for your flights in full. Air Travel Change Fees: If you, as the Passenger, change your air travel itinerary before your ticket is issued, you will be charged a $30 per person change fee (see Revision Fees). This charge will apply each time you make a change. If you change your air travel plans after your ticket is issued, you will be charged a $75 per person per change fee, and you will be responsible for any increase in airfare and/or penalties levied by the airline, which may be up to 100% of the air ticket value. Airline Cancellations: You may cancel your air within 24 hours of booking and receive a full refund of the cost of the airfare. If you, as the Passenger, choose to cancel your air arrangements eighty-nine (89) days or less before departure, then please refer to the Cancellation Policy section for the applicable cancellation policy and penalties that will be applied. If you, as the passenger, cancel your air ninety (90) days or more before departure and your air has been ticketed, you will be responsible for any penalties levied by the airline, which may be up to 100% of the air ticket value. Air Bookings and Restrictions: TSA regulations require us to collect the full first, middle and last name as it appears on your passport or governmentissued ID, as well as date of birth and gender. This information is required before we can book your air. Uniworld is not responsible for denied boarding or reissue costs due to an incorrect name, date of birth, or gender information supplied to Uniworld. Flight itineraries provided prior to ticketing are subject to change without notice. Uniworld is not responsible for any inconvenience or any costs or fees incurred by delays, lost luggage, or disruption of air service. Flight itineraries provided are subject to change by the Air Carrier(s). We recommend you contact the airline within seven (7) days of departure to reconfirm your flights. Uniworld Custom Air Service: To give you even more options and greater flexibility, Uniworld offers customized air reservations. This service is available for $25 per person, plus any applicable increased air costs. Requests must be received in writing, after the reservation is under deposit. Once you have made your deposit, you may make your custom air request by submitting the Custom Vacation Planning Form at uniworld.com. The service fee is non-refundable upon confirmation of the request. Seat Assignments and Special Services: Requests for seat assignments, special meals and special services must be made directly to the airline. Some airfares used by Uniworld are not eligible for frequent flyer mileage. Please inquire with the airline for full details regarding frequent flyer mileage.

Airlines may have additional baggage restrictions and may impose additional fees for checked baggage and/or excess baggage (visit uniworld.com/baggage). Additional taxes and surcharges may be collected by foreign government and non-government entities. Keep an eye on your baggage—it is your responsibility throughout the trip. Uniworld is not responsible for loss, theft, or damage to baggage and/or personal belongings. A protection plan covering lost, stolen or damaged baggage is available through the Uniworld Travel Protection Plan. Documents: Uniworld will send you a document packet twenty- one (21) to thirty (30) days before your cruise or cruise/tour departure date, provided that Uniworld receives your completed Passenger Information Form and your booking is paid in full. 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 agent or the US Consulate Service for information regarding necessary documentation. Non-US 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. As a courtesy, our website, 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.


Due to government imposed security/immigration measures, passport information and emergency contact information are required for all passengers prior to release of documentation.

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. Also, keep in mind that your health plan coverage for a stay outside the US may be limited. We recommend you obtain a travel protection plan. To help provide you with some peace of mind, 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. 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 eighty-nine (89) days or less before departure, then please refer to the Cancellation Policy section for the applicable cancellation policy and penalties that will be applied. Advanced, Canceled, 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/tour. Security: Security is a major concern to all of us and the situation globally is consistently 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 cancellation. You must accept these risks involved in travel to any country that may experience security difficulties and accept responsibility for your own travel decisions. Health and Mobility: The Company strives to provide a safe, enjoyable, and memorable travel experience for all passengers. The Company welcomes passengers with special needs or disabilities. However, please note the following: •  Passengers  are  required  to  advise  the  Company,  in  advance,  of  any  physical, medical, or other special needs that require accommodation. •  All  guests  must  ensure  they  are  medically  and  physically  fit  for travel. The Company may impose safety requirements necessary for the safe operation of the tour. The Company may also exclude an individual from participating in a tour or an activity if that individual’s participation poses a direct threat to health or safety. •  The  Company  does  not  provide  personal  devices  (such  as  wheelchairs,  hearing aids or prescription eye glasses) or services of a personal nature (such as pushing a wheelchair or assistance in eating, toileting or dressing). A companion capable of providing such assistance must accompany any passenger who requires services of a personal nature. •  The Company does not employ medical personnel. Any necessary medical  attention will be provided by a local facility at the passenger’s expense. The Company is not responsible or liable for any losses or costs incurred as a result of medical services obtained while on tour, or for the quality of the care or services received.

Passengers should be aware some tours include rough terrain, extensive walking over cobblestone streets, uneven pavement, steps and locations which may not be easily accessible or accessible by wheelchair. During the tour, the Company may make arrangements with carriers, hotels and other independent suppliers to provide travel services. These parties are independent entities over which the Company has no control. Accommodations on international tours may differ from those in the United States. The Company cannot guarantee disability access or accommodations for passengers traveling on international tours. The Company may, in its sole discretion, decline the booking of any passenger or remove any passenger who cannot comply or refuses to comply with the Company’s terms and conditions. The Company is not responsible for any costs incurred in the event a passenger is removed from a tour. Passengers agree not to hold the Company or any of its related entities liable for any actions taken under these terms and conditions.

Agreement: The payment of a deposit and/or the issuance of tickets or vouchers shall be deemed your consent to the terms and conditions as presented herein. It is specifically agreed that this agreement is entered into in Los Angeles County, California, and in the event any legal or equitable action is initiated concerning the interpretation, enforcement, or breach of any term, obligation, or duty as contained or related to these Terms and Conditions, the exclusive venue for such action shall be solely in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles County, Van Nuys District. This agreement shall be construed in accordance with California law without regard to conflicts of law principles.

UNIWORLD TRAVEL PROTECTION PLAN Providing you with cancellation flexibility and some peace of mind while you travel

SECTION I

SECTION III

TRAVEL ARRANGEMENT PROTECTION

WORLDWIDE EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE SERVICES

Provided by Uniworld*

Provided by On Call International

Trip Cancellation: Up to Total Trip Cost

24-Hour Worldwide Emergency Assistance

Reimburses the non-refundable Uniworld cancellation penalties imposed if you must cancel your trip for a covered reason such as illness, injury or death to you, a traveling companion or an immediate family member. Other covered reasons for cancellation include Common Carrier-caused delays due to inclement weather, jury duty, subpoena, or a documented traffic accident en route to departure, and other reasons as cited in the plan description.

One toll-free telephone call gives you access to On Call International a worldwide network of medical and travel-related professionals who will work together to solve your medical or travel-related problem.

The Uniworld “Any Reason” Cancellation Waiver** With the Uniworld “Any Reason” Cancellation Waiver, Uniworld will provide you with 100% of the Uniworld cancellation penalties in the form of a future travel credit certificate, should you cancel your cruise/tour prior to your original scheduled flight departure time for any reason that is not eligible for cash reimbursement under the Trip Cancellation section of the Travel Protection Plan. Cancellation penalties are reimbursed in the form of a Uniworld Travel Certificate allowing you a two (2) year credit to travel with us at a later date. Please note that to be eligible for the “Any Reason Cancellation Waiver,” you must enroll and pay for the plan at the time you make your initial trip deposit. The certificate is valid for two years, is nontransferable, non-refundable and may not be redeemed for cash. Future travel certificates do not include airfare cancellation charges for air arrangements unless those arrangements were provided by Uniworld.

Trip Interruption: Up to Total Trip Cost If you have to leave your vacation unexpectedly (for covered reasons such as illness as described above), you will be reimbursed for the unused, nonrefundable portion of your travel arrangements, plus the cost of returning home, up to your total trip cost.

Trip Delay: Up to $1,000 ($150/per day) If you miss the departure of your cruise/tour due to carrier caused delays or other covered reasons, the plan reimburses you for additional accommodations, meals and “catch-up” transportation expenses.

SECTION II TRAVEL INSURANCE BENEFITS Underwritten by Transamerica Casualty Insurance Company***

Baggage Protection: Up to $2,500 If your baggage or personal property is lost, stolen, or damaged, the plan will cover up to $2,500. If your bags are delayed or misdirected for more than 24 hours, the plan will reimburse you up to $500 for the purchase of necessary personal items.

Medical & Dental Expenses: Up to $50,000 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. This coverage is especially important, as Medicare and many private insurance policies generally do not cover you outside of the US, and many HMOs do not cover you outside their provider area.

Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation: Up to $50,000 In the event that a covered illness or injury requires air or ground transportation to a specialized facility or to return home, the plan provides up to $50,000 in covered medical services and supplies (coordinated by our 24-hour assistance provider, to help ensure your safe transport). The plan also provides payment for transportation of mortal remains in the event of death that occurs during the tour.
