Uniworld Boutique River Cruises has announced that it will be restarting cruising for American and European guests on 20 June, in Italy.
Uniworld Boutique River Cruises has announced its first sailing dates for this year – marking its #ArrivalRevival, post-COVID-19.
The company will resume cruising on June 20, 2021, debuting its most recently transformed Super Ship S.S. La Venezia in Italy.
Cruises will restart in France shortly after Italy, with the first departures for S.S. Bon Voyage on June 27th, S.S. Joie de Vivre on July 4th, and S.S. Catherine on July 11th.
This announcement comes with the news that Italy and France will reopen their borders for American citizens in June.
“We’ve been waiting for this moment and are beyond thrilled to be back on the rivers, welcoming back our loyal guests on four of our most beautiful Super Ships this summer,” says Ellen Bettridge, President & CEO of Uniworld.
“Our guests are like family to us, and their safety is our main priority, which is why we’re taking all of the necessary precautions to ensure they’re comfortable when they’re ready to explore the rivers with us again.”
The first cruise back
Uniworld’s Milan, Venice & the Gems of Northern Italy itinerary, commencing June 18, 2021 in Milan, will be line’s first cruise since the pandemic began.
Guests will spend two days in Milan before traveling to Venice where they’ll board the completely reimagined S.S. La Venezia.
Inspired by the work of celebrated Italian artist and textile designer Mariano Fortuny, this “floating boutique hotel” will feature the signature touches Uniworld says its ships are known for – more suites, more dining areas with space for social distancing, and more luxurious finishes, while maintaining its high crew to guest ratio.
“Restarting these itineraries is just the first step in getting all of our ships back on the rivers this year,” says Bettridge.
Uniworld says it has a lot to look forward to with the debut of the all-new S.S. Sphinx launching in Egypt Sept. 25, and it will also begin sailing the Peruvian Amazon Sept 1. with two new itineraries aboard the Aria Amazon.
“Demand for river cruising is at an all-time high and the support and excitement we are receiving from both new and old guests is outstanding,” concluded Bettridge.
