Leave It to the Experts

Uniworld takes the art of blending intimacy and elegance into the finest European Grand River Cruise experience onboard and on shore!


Europe is such an idyllic destination; you can’t help but have a nice time. But to have a truly wonderful timethat takes a little more effort and expertise. Itineraries have to be perfectly timed. Accommodations should be comfortable and elegant. Service must be professional, with a personal touch. Excursions need to be dreamed up, and then coordinated to become reality. And nothing should be left to chance.

So naturally, you should leave your river cruise to the experts, Uniworld Grand River Cruises.

Uniworld has been traveling the rivers of Europe for decades, and prides itself on continuously elevating its product delivery to its guests. All of Uniworld’s company-owned ships on the Rhine, Main, Danube, and Seine rivers have been completely refurbished over the past two years, and Uniworld introduced its newest ship, River Royale, into their fleet in 2006.

For the 2007 season, Uniworld finished several million dollars of upgrades on the River Duchess and River Countess. Uniworld has now brought all of its company-owned ships up to a very high standard of comfort with the finest of amenities including flat-screen televisions, hotel-styled beds with 100% Egyptian-cotton combed sheets, European-style down comforters, plush terry-cloth robes, thick bath towels and aromatherapy bath amenities.

Dining onboard a Uniworld Grand River Cruise blends the elegance of an inviting dining room, and the talents of an expert chef. Celebrity chef, Simon Tanner, who comes to Uniworld from London’s 5 star Le Meridian Piccadilly Hotel, creates tantalizing menus with the finest local ingredients to tempt your palate. Innovative dishes include fresh fish, meats and vegetarian entréesbeautifully presented and inspired by the cities of the itinerary. The knowledgeable and friendly staff is trained in the best traditions of attentive service. With a crew ratio of 37 crew members to 120 guests, Uniworld is amongst the highest in the industry. This is evident in the excellent feedback Uniworld gets from its guests, and confirms the value of having an outstanding European operations team who reports directly to the Uniworld head office in Los Angeles.

Guests’ on shore experience is of equal importance. This year, Uniworld has added a state-of-the-art Quiet Vox Audio system for all included and optional tours to maximize guests’ sightseeing experience. The benefits of the system are numerous. Commentary is always audible, even if the guest is not right next to the guide, and guests enjoy more freedom to move about, so their guided visits are more relaxed.

A Uniworld Grand River cruise is simply the best way to experience Europe, and if you book a cruise during the month of May, you’ll enjoy added benefits for your clients and for yourself. In recognition of the Travel Agent communities’ continued support, Uniworld has introduced a special consumer bonus savings along with a travel agent bonus commission for all new bookings during May.
