Whether you’re a seasoned river cruiser or looking for a new way to steep yourself into the rich history and cultural footprints of European cities, Uniworld wants to take you to Europe and back, with return airfares thrown in as well.
But the best thing is that the luxury river line has waived single supplements with solo prices starting from $6,999 including airfares.
A Uniworld river cruise gives you all the opulence a five-star hotel would, all while making the journey between cities a destination in itself, with world-class on-board facilities, in-depth shore excursions and exciting destinations that people don’t see on the average European holiday.
Uniworld has a strong culinary focus, with five-star farm-to-table onboard dining, inspired by the regions you move through, sourced locally at each port. Not to mention, food and wine-based shore activities.
Also, an exciting feature is the flexibility, most afternoons you’ll have a choice of at least two different guided tours, meaning you can self-curate your own perfect holiday.
One thing luxury ocean cruiser might miss when they turn to the rivers is the all-inclusivity of flights, knowing you’re taken care of from the second you leave home until you return.
However, Uniworld is partnering with Qatar Airways to offer great-value all-inclusive fares for European river cruising, meaning you can pay upfront and relax, knowing the rest of your holiday is taken care of for you.
As a bonus, if you don’t currently have someone who’s schedule is lining up with yours to explore the wondrous waterways of Europe, Uniworld is waiving their solo traveller supplement, meaning solo adventures can travel for the same price per person as couples or larger groups.
