photoUniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is a long-established line with ships that incorporate the "boutique" luxury approach of Uniworld's sister company, Red Carnation Hotels.

photoIn 2015, Uniworld is offering dozens of itineraries in Europe. The company's European fleet has grown to more than a dozen ships, with additional ships and cruise itineraries on the drawing board.  (The line's newest vessel, S.S. Maria Theresa, will debut in 2015 with cruises on the Rhine, Main, and Danube.)

Most Uniworld ships offer Wi-Fi Internet access in public areas. Cruise fares include European wines, beer, and soft drinks during lunch and dinner, Internet and Wi-Fi access, and transfers to and from the ship.  Starting in 2014, fares are covering all gratuities, including tips during shore excursions and pre- or post-cruise tours.

We cruised from Paris to Normandy and back on River Baroness in September, 2012 (see review link below) and were impressed by Uniworld's high levels of comfort and service. Watch for a forthcoming review of a cruise from Venice on River Countess.
