Posted: 21 Jan 2021 New Cruise and Rail for Uniworld in 2021

Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, is introducing a Cruise & Rail itinerary beginning in 2021. As private and convenient travel styles increase in demand, Uniworld will be offering its guests more ways to see bucket-list worthy destinations. 

“Uniworld is excited to be expanding into a new style of travel while continuing to offer the same unforgettable experiences that are exclusive to Uniworld,” says Ellen Bettridge, President & CEO of Uniworld. “We are also looking ahead to 2022 and the unique ways we can provide our guests with the best travel opportunities to fully immerse themselves in remarkable experiences.” 

Uniworld’s new Cruise & Rail itinerary provides another option for Venice, connecting with the all-new S.S. La Venezia. The 14-day Zurich to Venice Cruise & Rail itinerary is new for 2021 and 2022 will see the expansion of the cruise and rail product to include two new trips, plus a stand-alone Rail-Only itinerary. 

Experience the varied wonders of Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein and Slovenia from every angle with a one-of-a-kind adventure by land, cruise and train. The journey begins in Milan and moves on to romantic Venice. These two legendary cities (Milan—home to Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, and Venice—the “Queen of the Adriatic”) will bookend unforgettable experiences set along Northern Italy’s exquisite coastline. 

Once in Venice you’ll discover the enchanting “City of Water”, exploring waterfront shops, colourful facades and peaceful canals unique to Burano, Mazzorbo and Torcello. Farther south, Chioggia—a charming southern port loved by fishermen, artists and anyone looking for unique gifts or souvenirs is on the menu. 

You’ll visit a historic wine estate in the vineyards of Valpolicella for a decadent food and wine pairing and then enjoy additional shopping time in “bountiful” Bologna and medieval Padua, once home to Galileo and Copernicus. Your trip to Italy wouldn't be complete without a visit to UNESCO-designated Ferrara and Verona, the famed city of Romeo and Juliet. 

Cap off your voyage with a 4-day train trip to Zurich. You’ll sleep on the luxury Golden Eagle Danube Express with ever-changing views at your window – the perfect follow-up to a river cruise. Along the way, visit the glittering lakes of Zurich and Bled, explore medieval towns and capital cities, enjoy a private concert in the caves of Postojna and more. 

This trip is ideal for experienced travelers who are looking for a unique way to travel.  

For all 2022 cruises, Uniworld will offer river cruisers a 12% early payment discount on sailings paid in full and booked by 31 March including suites. This special offer is valid on the cruise portion of all 2022 Cruise & Rail itineraries.
