Imagine travelling through the rivers of Europe on a luxury floating boutique hotel! This is what you experience on a Uniworld River Cruise.
Each ship is a one-of-a-kind statement piece, brimming with character and each having its own personality.
Uniworld features an unmatched level of all-inclusive luxurious amenities:
River cruising is one of the fastest growing cruise sectors among New Zealand travellers. Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia and Asia Managing Director Joel Katz said Australia’s and New Zealand’s love affair with river cruising showed no signs of abating.
“Our latest figures show that thousands of New Zealanders are making the pilgrimage to the world’s most famous rivers in search of a new, relaxing way to travel. There is something so blissful about exploring Europe via its medieval highways, each day disembarking in another picturesque riverside town to explore its cobblestoned streets or hilltop castles,” Mr Katz said.
This is our Uniworld feature itinerary this month.
10 Day Delightful Danube & Prague
Budapest, Cruising the Danube River
Vibrant Budapest, Hungary’s capital, offers an enchanting combination of East and West, old and new.
Cruising the Danube River, Vienna
The grand dame of the Danube, Vienna was the heart of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and remains, to this day, the political and cultural centre of Austria. It’s a treasure trove of splendid architecture, astonishing art collections and inviting cafés.
Cruising the Wachau Valley, Spitz
Sit back and enjoy the ever-changing views as your ship cruises through the UNESCO declared World Heritage landscape of the Wachau Valley, famous for its apricot groves, Rieslings and natural beauty. Later, enjoy an exclusive sparkling wine reception at Artstatten Castle.
Engelhartszell, Cruising the Danube River, Passau
Your ship cruises through a scenic highlight of the Danube today, the Schlögener Schlinge. Your first German port of call is Passau, where three rivers meet — the Inn, the Ilz and the Danube — and three nations almost meet: Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic.
Famous for its beautiful buildings from the 12th century that survived subsequent wars, UNESCO declared the old city centre a World Heritage Site in 2006.
Regensburg, Roth, Nuremberg
Sixteen locks punctuate the 106-mile (160-kilometer) stretch between Kelheim and Bamberg, linking the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers.
Nuremberg (Disembark), Prague
Disembark the ship and transfer to Prague. It’s impossible not to be completely enchanted by Prague, with its fabled skyline of spires, fortress-like castle, beautifully preserved architecture and iconic Charles Bridge.
