Travel lends itself to discovery and learning – so much so, that the new horizons and memorable experiences encountered on a trip, can reveal as much about ourselves, as they can about a culture, or a place.
With all that travel gives us, it’s easy to understand just what Oliver Wendell Holmes meant when he said, “a mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.”
What better way to stretch the mind with new experiences, than on a themed Uniworld river cruise? Think all-inclusive, luxury river cruising in Europe with like-minded travellers who have come to share in the experience of a themed adventure.
Whether it’s a cruise centred on Europe’s food and wine, its royal and religious past, or a specialised itinerary that caters to the needs of families, Well Travelled offers many themed cruises with one of Europe’s top river cruise operators, Uniworld.
Discover Europe’s royal history with the Monarch Collection
Tour the royal gardens, imposing castles and grand palaces of Europe on one of Uniworld’s Monarch Collection cruises.
Journey down the Rhine and Danube Rivers on a 15-day cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest and experience what it’s like to be hosted by a real princess in a baroque castle, or to attend a concert and dinner at a Renaissance palace.
If you prefer, an 8-day cruise concentrates on the Danube from Passau, Germany to Budapest.
Sample the best of Europe with the Connoisseur Collection
It’s a celebration of the senses on Uniworld’s Connoisseur Collection cruises. Exclusive sailings in 2017 include: Paris & Normandy; Burgundy & Provence; and Bordeaux, Vineyards and Chateaux itineraries.
No matter the sailing, guests can expect to partake in some of the finest cheeses, wines, baked goods and gourmet dishes found in France. From chocolate tastings and wine pairings to a French cooking lesson and tea party in Lyon, each of these cruises offers something special and delectable.
It’s a winter wonderland on a Holiday Season’s Cruise
Uniworld continues the tradition of themed cruising even in winter, and what better time to experience the festive traditions of Europe than during the Christmas season.
Seven itineraries make up the Holiday Season collection with sailings offered on the Rhine River, the Danube, and the Seine.
Sip mulled wine at a German Christmas market, attend a private organ concert in a historic abbey, or dance the night away at a New Year’s party in the most historic and elegant of locations.
Something for everyone on a Family Adventures cruise
A Uniworld cruise is truly something special, so why shouldn’t the whole family be able to join in on the fun?
From kid’s menus and activities onboard, to tours and shore excursions specifically designed for families with younger kids and teenagers, a Uniworld Family Adventure cruise makes for the perfect holiday.
Best of all, cruises are half-price on select itineraries for kids between the ages of 4 and 18 years old.
