THE WORLD’S TOO BIG to stay in one place.

The world is a big, vibrant, beautiful place, complete with authentic culture, some of the best wine you’ve ever tasted, and masterfully designed architecture. No two destinations are exactly alike, and no two Uniworld voyages are either. You deserve the best, and your voyage is completely up to you. Choose your meticulously appointed stateroom by your favorite color if you’d like. Savor a premium cocktail made exactly to your taste. Converse with your in-suite butler as he serves you breakfast in bed and shares how the Picasso in the foyer found its way onboard. Then step into the world at large with our one-of-a-kind Exclusive Experiences, providing you with many cultural opportunities you won’t find anywhere else in a host of amazing destinations throughout Europe, Russia, Asia, India and Egypt.

It’s all part of why we’ve earned the distinction of the world’s best and most awarded luxury river cruise line ever.

THE WORLD IS YOUR CANVAS. COLOR IT AS YOU PLEASE.

EVERY SHIP IS A MUSEUM ON WATER. BUT IT’S OKAY TO EAT AND DRINK NEAR THE ARTWORK. Art is the journey of a free soul, so come on and let your soul free onboard our boutique one-of-a-kind ships. Our award-winning ships are inspired by the beauty, colors and intricate detail of the destinations you’ll visit on your voyage. Take the S.S. Antoinette, fashioned after Marie Antoinette’s 18th-century Chateau de Versailles; the S.S. Maria Theresa, which some have described as a floating baroque Viennese palace; or the brand-new S.S. Joie de Vivre, inspired by 20th-century Paris. Your ship is a destination in and of itself, with hidden elements and artful refinements waiting to be explored in every room. Not only is each Uniworld ship unique, complete with handcrafted furniture commissioned exclusively for Uniworld, carefully curated original artwork and antiques, and a bespoke design scheme, but each room onboard your ship is as well. Relax in the art deco–inspired lounge on the River Queen—one of the only ships on the rivers of Europe with a working fireplace. Then relax in your custom stateroom and fall into a blissful sleep on your Savoir® of England bed.

EACH SHIP IS A WORK OF ART ON WATER, JUST AS EACH DESTINATION YOU’LL VISIT IS A WORK OF ART ON LAND.


PEACE OF MIND COMES WITH EVERY UNIWORLD CRUISE. Being mindful, well-informed and prepared are essential traits of an experienced traveler, and we approach each Uniworld cruise with that same thorough care and mindset. We’ve taken great measures to ensure that when you travel with us, you can rest easy knowing that your plans and adventures are in the hands of a dedicated worldwide team.

SECURITY MEASURES ON EUROPE SHIPS • We keep all outside doors and access to the interior of the ship locked whenever docked. Only guests can access the ship using a key card. • All guests and luggage are verified against the manifest at check-in. • All deliveries are thoroughly inspected before being brought onboard. • Cameras are present at the entrance of the ship and in public areas, and are monitored by our reception staff. • Portable boarding pass scanners are available at the gangway. • Guests have 24/7 access to the front desk. • Trained security staff are posted at the gangway 24 hours a day.

A CREATIVE HISTORY OF HOSPITALITY

led to one picture-perfect cruise collection. Boutique hospitality, unmatched service and a dedication to going above and beyond for our guests are deep-rooted in our DNA. Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is modeled after our sister company, the five-star Red Carnation Hotel Collection, and we’ve been able to tap into their more than 100 years of experience and bring their knowledge to the rivers. One thing they’ve taught us? Luxury travel is best when it’s all in the family, which is why we employ our own full-time staff onboard 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.

THERE ARE ALWAYS FLOWERS FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SEE THEM. ” – Henri Matisse Matisse probably wasn’t making a hidden Uniworld reference when he imparted this wisdom to the world, but he might as well have been. If you look carefully, you’ll notice there are many orchids across all of our ships. The orchid stands for beauty, refinement, charm and luxury, and is the official flower of Uniworld. Look for them, and for many of Henri Matisse’s original works of art, as well as pieces by other greats including Joan Miró and Picasso, onboard your next cruise. They’re just some of the Tiny Noticeable Touches that make your vacation a masterpiece.


18

THE ART OF CRUISING meets the art of touring.

When three luxury travel brands come together, you reap the rewards. Uniworld has partnered with our sister companies, Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold, to offer exclusive itineraries and excursions only made possible by a marriage of luxurious proportions. Travel by river, by car and by train to venture off the beaten path and experience authentic culture, delicious local cuisine, and the expansive beauty and scenery of this world.

Featured Highlights: Skip the line with small-group excursions that provide an intimate atmosphere and personal attention. | The Insight Vacations motorcoach will be your ship on land, featuring business-class legroom, onboard Wi-Fi and other amenities designed for your comfort. | Your personal concierge will be at your service, wherever and whenever needed.

THE WORLD’S BEEN GOOD TO US.

And we’d like to return the favor.

As part of our passion for sustainable tourism, we focus on making a positive impact through environmental, social and economic responsibility. We partner with Just a Drop to help provide clean drinking water to those who would otherwise be without, donate many items and materials that are no longer in use on our ships, develop programs to preserve local culture, and aim to support local businesses in the countries we visit.

Mother Nature has provided us with a beautiful playground, and supporting the places we visit and those who call our destinations home is essential to ensuring the future of travel is equally bright. Almost a decade ago, we introduced a clean water program to preserve our rivers and waterways, which many in the industry have since followed. With our TreadRight Foundation partnership, we are currently working to help save wildlife and create economic opportunities for women as part of the Aid for Artisans project. Travel has provided us the chance to give back and lift up others, and we strive to do so whenever possible.


TREADRIGHT FOUNDATION Founded in 2008 by Uniworld’s parent company, The Travel Corporation, the TreadRight Foundation encourages sustainable tourism and has completed more than 40 projects that have benefited the environment as well as local culture and heritage. In 2015, TreadRight named their first ambassador, leading environmentalist and explorer Céline Cousteau. Céline has traveled the world while working to preserve marine life as well as indigenous tribes in the Amazon. To learn more and see Céline’s story, visit TreadRight.org

IT’S YOUR WORLD. AND IF IT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU, it’s very important to us.

When it comes to service, we know the tiniest of details sometimes have the biggest impact. Getting ready for a day exploring Frankfurt is a shimmer brighter when your butler has already pressed your pants exactly how you like. Breakfast in bed becomes even more relaxing when your waiter serves you coffee already prepared to your liking—two sugars and a splash of soy milk. And a late-night cocktail is never more enjoyable than when the bartender sourced your favorite Bordeaux wine from a store in town while you were exploring Saint-Émilion’s astonishing 12th-century Monolithic Church.


We actually have a name for the little niceties that take your cruise from great to grand—Tiny Noticeable Touches (or TNTs for short). Our commitment to TNTs sets the stage for our service philosophy. By getting to know you, your interests, your preferences and your style, we’re able to deliver an experience that is just the way you’d like it to be.

“NO REQUEST TOO LARGE, NO DETAIL TOO SMALL.” We don’t just say it. We really mean it, as evidenced by the many repeat guests who choose Uniworld time and time again.

THE TNT MODEL The most highly trained, dedicated and tenured staff of all river cruise lines. | Butlers trained to the same standards of excellence required by Buckingham Palace. | Act with honesty, speak with integrity and treat our guests like royalty.


THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE ABOUT OUR CREW IS THE ONE THING WE CAN’T TEACH THEM. Passion. “When you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. That mantra is readily apparent the first moment you step onboard and interact with our staff and crew. We are proud to have one of the most professionally trained and tenured staff, as well as one of the highest staff-to-guest ratios on the river (1:3 if you’re curious). But the rigorous training and high standards only go so far. You’ll find that on top of the impeccable attention to detail, it’s the dedication, commitment, passion and genuine love of hospitality that put our staff and crew on another level. And while we could go on and on about our staff, sometimes our guests say it better than we ever could.”

Ellen Bettridge, Uniworld President and CEO


“Uniworld provided five-star service. Our tour guide and the local guides were excellent and offered great and detailed information on the country and areas visited. The accommodations were better than anything we could have expected.”

– Thomas, China, Tibet & the Yangtze

“The service we had was five star! Every employee was helpful, had a smile for us and always made us feel special.”

– Alison, Burgundy & Provence

“It was a one-of-a-kind experience. My husband and I enjoyed the attention to detail. We were so pampered. The service was outstanding. The crew members were great and so helpful.”

– Vera, European Jewels

“Service was excellent. Crew spot-on perfect from my point of view.”

– Joyce, Enchanting Danube

EVERY MEAL IS A MASTERPIECE. Our commitment to culinary excellence is evident every time you enjoy a homemade croissant delivered to your room by your butler, or when you pair your freshly caught seafood dinner with a wine that was bottled just miles down the road. When dining onboard, you’ll be treated to world-class cuisine made from fresh ingredients, locally sourced from the destinations you visit. Our farm-to-table approach takes our chefs to regional farms, local markets and artisanal producers to ensure that every meal is an adventure in and of itself. We treat cooking as an art form—a very delicious art form. Our focus on serving memorable meals comes directly from worldrenowned Mrs. Beatrice Tollman—founder of our sister Red Carnation Hotel Collection, author of the highly acclaimed cookbook A Life in Food and the inspiration behind the culinary philosophy onboard. Mrs. Tollman’s personal recipes are guest favorites on our dining menus.

Pro Tip: Don’t

order a salad without sampling her favorite dressing.

ENJOY AN UNRIVALED TASTE OF YOUR DESTINATIONS even when onboard.

FROM FARM TO SHIP Farm-to-table isn’t just a trendy culinary buzzword around here. It’s a governing philosophy and commitment to serving you the very best local dishes created by our master chefs. When in Italy, dinner may consist of Prosciutto di Parma pizza and Osso Buco Milanese, prepared to your liking, with meats and vegetables sourced from just miles away. After a day immersed in Indian culture, your taste buds may do some immersing of their own with Gajar Shorba and Tandoori Chicken Tikka for lunch. Live brilliantly. Dine locally. That’s our story and we’re sticking to it.

FAR EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS IN ALL ASPECTS. PROFESSIONALISM, COURTEOUS EMPLOYEES, AND GREAT SHORE EXCURSIONS. THE FOOD WAS ALSO FANTASTIC. ”

– Frank and Peter,

Highlights of Eastern Europe


WE LEARNED FROM THE BEST Mrs. Beatrice Tollman’s culinary vision lives on with her many Signature Dishes you can enjoy onboard. Mrs. Tollman’s memoir, A Life in Food, chronicles her gastronomic prowess and joy of being able to share her life’s passion with thousands of guests. You’ll discover many of the recipes Mrs. Tollman published on our menu, including Bea’s Chicken Soup, Sesame Fried Chicken and Honeycomb Ice Cream. If the allinclusive amenities and luxurious accommodations weren’t enough to put you in a state of comfortable bliss, the homegrown cooking will.

OUR THIRD RIVER CRUISE AND EACH ONE BRILLIANT. LOVE TASTING THE FOOD AND WINE OF THE COUNTRYSIDE YOU SAIL THROUGH. ”

– Erica, Castles along the Rhine

CREATIVE CULINARY OPTIONS

for all dining preferences.

For those interested in healthier dining options, our Traveling Lite menu features all of the flavor of our traditional menu, but with fewer calories. We also offer a variety of vegetarian and vegan options, prepared just for you. If you have a specific meal preference, just ask. Our chefs will be happy to accommodate.


THE ONE THING MORE STUNNING THAN STEPPING ONBOARD OUR SHIPS is stepping off.


32

Each ship design has been inspired by the destinations you’ll visit, which means your destinations will be pretty spectacular. Our included excursions are curated exclusively for Uniworld guests, and are your gateway to immersing yourself in the authentic culture, sights and cuisine of the places you’ll visit.

THE CHOICE IS YOURS Choose an active excursion, a culturally enriching one or a “Gentle Walking” tour that lets you explore at a more leisurely pace. We feature more than 80 excursions that are completely unique to Uniworld guests. Nothing onboard is cookie-cutter, so your time onshore shouldn’t be either. These included excursions, as well as our Exclusive Experiences, feature several options throughout the entire day, so you can adventure onwards exactly how you’d like.

Let’s Go: Put on your walking shoes or your favorite bike shorts and head out on a hiking or biking excursion. Our Nordic walking poles and custom Uniworld bicycles are available for you to use onshore. With our compliments, of course.

Do as the Locals Do: Experience life just as a local would with these specialty excursions designed to give you an authentic inside look into your destination. With our VizEat partnership, you can get a taste of the city and share a meal in the home of a local host.

Village Day: Discover some of the prettiest and most charming towns and cities on these intimate adventures, offering an in-depth look into quaint destinations and the local people who bring them to life.

NOTE: Choice is Yours excursions available on Europe itineraries only.

ACTIVE ADVENTURES all over the world. Keep up with your favorite fitness routine or try something completely new. Your Uniworld experience includes many options to stay fit both onboard and onshore.

“LET’S GO” EXCURSIONS Our “Let’s Go” onshore program features guided walking, hiking, cycling, kayaking and golfing tours, as well as gondola rowing and more. Hop on a bicycle for a tour of Italy on two wheels, riding past Chioggia’s picturesque beaches. Trek through Europe’s lush vineyards in Germany’s Moselle Valley on a guided hiking tour. Hit the links with a “Let’s Go” round of golf at Golf d’Étretat, one of Europe’s most stunning courses, perched on the French clifftops, more than 150 feet above sea level. Admire the ancient Pont du Gard from the perspective of a river kayak, or explore onshore on your own with our complimentary custom bicycles and Nordic walking poles. Wherever your journey takes you, there will be many opportunities to get out and go.

WELLNESS ONBOARD Start your day with yoga at sunrise or a TRX® Suspension Training class*, or work out at your own pace in the fitness center.

Our team is happy to help you craft a completely custom experience, whether you’re interested in chartering the entire ship or wish to bring your group onboard for a private event.

Step back in time to the oldest European Jewish settlements, and then travel back to the present with excursions highlighting Jewish-inspired architecture, museums and memorials.

Spend the most wonderful time of year in some of the most wonderful places in the world.

THE CHRISTMAS MARKETS AND THE FESTIVE ATMOSPHERE WAS SO MUCH FUN. THE PROGRAM DIRECTOR PROVIDED A LOT OF INFORMATION AND THE TOUR GUIDES WERE THE BEST! I CAN’T WAIT TO GO BACK! ”

EUROPEAN JEWELS BUDAPEST to AMSTERDAM · 16 DAYS · AUSTRIA, GERMANY, HUNGARY, THE NETHERLANDS IT’S BEEN DEBATED WHY THIS CRUISE CARRIES THE “JEWELS” NAME. Is it the nine UNESCO World Heritage sites you’ll visit, all of which are cultural treasures? Or is it because of the rare and precious experiences you’ll enjoy, like the exclusive “Morning with the Masters” tour of the Van Gogh Museum? Well, perhaps it’s the hidden gem hideaways you’ll find your way into—the Würzburg Residence comes to mind. Let’s say the answer is yes.

IS IT A CRUISE? OR IS IT A TOUR? YES. Several of our itineraries, including this one, are what we refer to as Cruise/Tours. It’s part cruise—you’ll spend many nights onboard one or more of our floating boutique hotels, traveling to a variety of destinations amidst our work-of-art accommodations. And it’s also part tour—you’ll spend some time onshore, in luxurious partner hotels specifically arranged by our Uniworld team. It’s the best of both worlds and a creative way to experience the ins and outs of your destinations, by land and by river.

’TIS THE SEASON TO CELEBRATE in Europe.


It’s the most wonderful time of the year for an all-inclusive holiday celebration in the place where many Christmas traditions got their start. Choose from one of seven holidaythemed sailings and venture to a place where Christmas lights line the streets, the sounds of carolers ring from every corner and the smell of holiday spices ignites your senses. Paris is spectacular year-round, but when December rolls in and the city is adorned in holiday decorations, it’s utterly magical. In Rüdesheim, the life-sized Nativity scene is moving, as is Heidelberg’s Christmas Pyramid. For those seeking the quintessential Christmas experience, a horse-drawn wagon ride in Bavaria will check the boxes on your holiday wish list. Turn the page and step into a winter wonderland that would make even Santa jealous.


CLASSIC CHRISTMAS MARKETS NUREMBERG to FRANKFURT · 8 DAYS · GERMANY IF THERE’S ONE THING WE CAN ALL AGREE ON, IT’S THAT GERMANY KNOWS HOW TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS. It all began more than 500 years ago, when Germany’s traditional markets used to transform around the holidays into a bustling celebration glowing with festive lights, friendly faces and local delicacies. Flash forward to today, and although lighting technology has undergone an upgrade, not much else has changed in the charming city centers of Frankfurt, Bamberg and Nuremberg. Houses are dressed with garland, just like those in your favorite childhood Christmas story. The smells of cinnamon, nutmeg and gingerbread drift past the holiday carousel.

FRANCE IS POETRY in motion.


THE DORDOGNE THE GARONNE . THE RHÔNE THE SAÔNE . THE SEINE Relax and let go while France seduces you with her romantic personality and chic city centers just minutes from sprawling forests and iconic beaches. The French people practice l’art de vivre (the art of living), which is widely apparent while on a lovely stroll through the seaside village of Honfleur, beloved by generations of artists, or when conversing with local winemakers while they share their life’s work paired with a tasty lunch at Château de Cazeneuve.

Some of the regions and towns you’ll visit will ring a bell— Paris, Versailles, Normandy and Bordeaux. But those you may be less familiar with will leave just as much of a lasting impression with their old-world charm and magnetic draw: Viviers, Giverny and Avignon.

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL. TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF IT ON YOUR FRENCH VOYAGE.


PARIS & NORMANDY PARIS to PARIS · 8 DAYS · FRANCE LIVE LIKE A PARISIAN ON THIS ROUNDTRIP JOURNEY FROM PARIS, WHILE SAVORING THE CHARMING COUNTRYSIDE OF NORMANDY IN BETWEEN. In Versailles, visit the Château de Versailles, Louis XIV’s grand palace and truly a sight to behold.

The Normandy Beaches mean many different things to different people, which you can experience on an excursion to several historic sites including the English Channel

Utah and Omaha beaches. Golf enthusiasts can hit BELGIUM the links on a “Let’s Go” outing to Golf d’Etretat, a simply stunning course set atop the cliffs of the Alabaster Coast.

BORDEAUX, VINEYARDS & CHÂTEAUX BORDEAUX to BORDEAUX · 8 DAYS · FRANCE WINE AND DINE AS THE FRENCH DO ALONG THE DORDOGNE AND GARONNE RIVERS. Bordeaux is a place where dreams come true, especially dreams that include sampling sweet local wine while overlooking a sprawling vineyard in Sauternes. The locals call it the douceur de vivre (sweet life), which will make perfect sense after your first sip. The walking discovery tour to the historic vineyards of Saint-Émilion also includes a wine tasting, of course. You’ll want something to pair with all of the local wines, and we suggest the many regional treats from charcuterie to canelés.

Gironde Estuary

Excursions to farmers’ markets and luxury food halls will help with that. And just as memorable as FRANCE

the food and drink are the age-old traditions and

many times you’ve been. It’s all chef d’oeuvre (a North Sea

PORTUGAL AND SPAIN PROVIDE MANY Instagram-worthy moments.


THE DOURO RIVER Starting in Spain and winding through Portugal, the Douro River isn’t one of Europe’s best-known rivers, and that’s exactly why we love it. We feature two itineraries on this under-the-radar gem of a waterway, both of which take you on a journey through Portugal’s pristine landscapes and Spain’s historic neighborhoods. Portugal was once home to some of the world’s greatest explorers. Take a page from their book and be sure to explore everything from the traditional cuisine to the local Port wine—you are in Portugal, after all. Spain radiates a culture of fiery passion. With three nights in Lisbon or three in Madrid, depending on your voyage, you’ll have plenty of time to delve into Spanish culture full on.

BRING YOUR CAMERA. YOU WON’T WANT TO PUT IT DOWN.


JEWELS OF SPAIN, PORTUGAL & THE DOURO RIVER MADRID to LISBON · 13 DAYS · PORTUGAL, SPAIN THERE ARE FEW THINGS IN LIFE THAT ARE SURE THINGS, but this cruise is high atop that list. With Madrid, Lisbon, Porto and much more in the picture, and the Queen Isabel transporting you along the way, you won’t go wrong, no matter where your curiosity takes you. Madrid transmits a rare energy that is very much its own. The city has an art scene that can’t be matched and its museums feature works from the great Picasso, Dalí and Miró. You’ll visit two other Spanish gems as well—Toledo and Salmanca. Portugal is also Bay of

RUSSIA IS A REAL-LIFE fairytale.


THE VOLGA . THE NEVA . THE SVIR At first glance, you might think you’re dreaming. Russia tends to have that effect. Moscow and St. Petersburg are glittering cities with extravagant palaces and whimsical cathedrals matched with contemporary creativity. St. Petersburg’s imaginative vision takes center stage during a ballet performance in one of its local theaters. In between lies the town of Mandrogi, home to the Museum of Vodka and gingerbread-like wooden houses. Farther down the river is Uglich, where a walking tour of the Church of St. Dmitry on the Blood, built in honor of the slain son of Ivan the Terrible, is a memorable way to spend a summer afternoon. Our “Imperial Waterways of Russia” itinerary will take you there and beyond, painting a picture of what local life in this former Soviet stronghold looks like today. And if you ask us, it looks pretty spectacular.

ASIA IS A CLASSIC. Come take a look.


THE YANGTZE . THE MEKONG China, Vietnam and Cambodia may share the same continent, but you’ll discover that the similarities between them don’t carry much further. And that’s a good thing—a great thing, in fact. Each of these distinct Asian nations offers a breadth of opportunities to dive into local culture and see why tradition still reigns supreme.

China is full of secrets to be unveiled by inquiring travelers. Throughout the country, the most modern of cities juxtapose ancient civilizations, but wherever your travels take you, you’ll want to try the food. For starters, a Peking Duck lunch, a tradition that was served to emperors since the 13th-century, will be waiting for you in the UNESCOdesignated Temple of Heaven.

Vietnam and Cambodia are full of history, grand temples and magical lakes. These two very different locales are both on the itinerary of one incredible cruise. And with 15 days to explore, you’ll have plenty of time to become enlightened by the warm and welcoming locals who treat each day as a gift.

TRAVEL DOWN THE NILE in style.


THE NILE One of the longest rivers in the world, the Nile has served as a lifeline for many different civilizations dating back thousands of years. Its purpose today looks a bit different. The pharaohs and their queens didn’t have an ultra-luxurious floating boutique hotel to transport them through Egypt, but you do. And rest assured, you’ll feel like a pharaoh during your time onboard and onshore. Many of Egypt’s ancient monuments and exhibits lie along the Nile: the Temple of Luxor, the Great Pyramids and the tomb of King Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings. This proud country is a shimmering treasure within the desert, as made apparent by the many smiling local faces you’ll encounter during your travels.


SPLENDORS OF EGYPT & THE NILE CAIRO to CAIRO · 12 DAYS · EGYPT CAN YOU SEE THE PYRAMIDS FROM THE RAIL OF YOUR SUITE ONBOARD OUR RIVER TOSCA? We’d tell you, but what’s the fun in that? Come discover for yourself as you cruise like a queen or king for many days full of ancient sites, influential structures and possibly a pharaoh or two.

EACH SHIP IS A LIMITED EDITION. And numbered one of one.

Our boutique ships are exactly what that adjective implies: warm, intimate and oneof-a-kind. Choose your stateroom based on your favorite color if you’d like. Engage in an evening conversation with new friends onboard one of the only river cruise ships with a functioning fireplace (yes, it’s lovely).

MARIA THERESA HELD MANY NOBLE POSITIONS— Holy Roman Empress, German Queen and Archduchess of Austria, to name a few. Her legacy was the inspiration behind the S.S. Maria Theresa and this specially commissioned portrait, which hangs in its lobby. Onboard an S.S. Maria Theresa cruise, you’ll even have a rare opportunity to meet one of Maria Theresa’s direct descendants, Princess Anita von Hohenberg, at a private reception in her castle home. Her personality is just as delightful as her much-loved ancestor’s.

THERE WAS ONCE A CHANDELIER THAT HUNG IN NEW YORK’S FAMOUS CENTRAL PARK RESTAURANT, TAVERN ON THE GREEN.

“ART WASHES AWAY FROM THE SOUL THE DUST OF EVERYDAY LIFE.”

– Pablo Picasso

To Picasso, the world was his canvas and the inspiration for his incredible work, which forever transformed the way we think about art. Onboard our ships, be sure to look around. You might just spot an original Picasso hanging in the hallway.

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, non-refundable 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.

TRIP COST PREMIUM $0 - $4,500 $399 $4,501 - $6,000 $499 $6,001 - $8,000 $649 $8,001 + $749 NOTE: Prices are subject to change without notice.

If you are not satisfied for any reason, you may cancel the travel insurance portion of your coverage within 10 days of receiving the Plan Description, if you have not departed on your trip or filed a claim.

The previous is only a summary of the plan description detailing the terms, conditions and exclusions, and will be sent to you in your final cruise documents. We have highlighted just a few of the plan benefits. If you have any Travel Protection Plan questions, or would like to request a copy of the plan description, please call our plan administrator, Aon Affinity, at 800-797-2279.

You may have coverage from other sources that provides you with similar benefits but may be subject to different restrictions depending upon your other coverages. You may wish to compare the terms of this policy with your existing life, health, home and automobile policies. If you have any questions about your current coverage, call your insurer, insurance agent or broker.

A separate non-refundable air deposit of $450 per person is due for the airfare booked in conjunction with a Uniworld cruise/tour and is required at the time air is booked. Upon receipt of air deposit 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 nonrefundable air deposit. AIR TRAVEL CHANGE FEES: If you, as the Passenger, change your air travel itinerary before your ticket is issued, you will be charged a $35 per person change fee (see Revision Fee). 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.

SEAT ASSIGNMENTS AND SPECIAL SERVICES: Requests for seat assignments, special meals and special services must be made directly to the airline. Not all airlines offer pre-assigned seats, some may charge for pre-assigned seats and any additional charge imposed by the airlines will be at the guest’s expense. Seating is solely under the airline’s control, as are itinerary changes, flight delays and schedule changes. Some airfares used by Uniworld are not eligible for frequent flyer mileage.

2018 TERMS AND CONDITIONS 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 us 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. For entry to Cambodia, our Tour Manager will take care of obtaining Cambodian visas for each Guest while on the tour. Each Guest will need to provide the Tour Manager with their passport, a separate passport photo, and $50 USD cash per person while on the tour for this purpose. The Tour Manager will then submit all passports to the Cambodian Immigration Authorities and obtain the visas. For southbound Mekong cruises, this will be done at the Siem Reap Airport. For northbound Mekong cruises, this will be done onboard the Mekong Navigator prior to entering Cambodia. A multiple entry visa is required for entry to Vietnam. A single entry visa is required for entry to India. A single entry visa is required for entry to China. A single entry visa is required for entry to Russia.

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.

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. 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. Guests who choose to cancel or interrupt their cruise/tour due to an itinerary change will be subject to our standard Cancellation Policy. EXTENSIONS/LAND TOURS: Uniworld reserves the right to reschedule and/ or cancel land extensions or land tours if the minimum number of participants

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 IS A MAJOR CONCERN TO ALL OF US, AND THE SITUATION GLOBALLY 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 cancellation. 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. 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 at time of booking of any physical, medical, or other special needs that require accommodation.

Any necessary medical attention will be provided by a local facility at the passenger’s expense.

These parties are independent entities over which the Company has no control. Accommodations on international tours may differ from those in the U.S. 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.
