River Cruises

River cruise vacations allow you a front row seat to some of the world’s most enchanting waterfront cities. River cruise ships dock right in the heart of the activity, only steps away from the charm, excitement and bustle of many of the world’s most fascinating port towns.  Sail the rivers of Europe, Russia or China.

 Cary Travel Express in Sun Day News - Sun City, Huntley

clientuploads/River Cruises/Carolyn Danube Groip Pic.jpgIn September of 2011, several Sun City residents traveled the Danube River from Passua, Germany, to Budapest, Hungary on UniWorld's River Beatrice. In Passua, they heard a marvelous organ concert in St. Stephan's Cathedral. They then traveled by boat to Linz, where they took a bus to Salzburg for a walking tour with some shopping time! Their boat journey took them to the Melk Abbey for a tour of the Abbey dating back 600 years. They enjoyed the beauty of Vienna, and could option for a royal concert and a visit to Schonbrunn Castle. The river cruise ended in Budapest, Hungary, which all agreed is a beautiful city rich in history. The trip was arranged by Cary Travel Express, and the group leader was Carolyn Cuttle of N28 in Sun City Huntley.

Whether you’ve visited Europe once or a dozen times, you haven’t really experienced the best of Europe until you’ve sailed with Uniworld Boutique River Cruises.

Uniworld offers an exceptional vacation experience free of the stresses associated with today’s travel. It combines the pleasure of discovering the multitude of charms and landmarks of different destinations with the same exquisite accommodations, award-winning hospitality, and world-class cuisine of a five-star boutique hotel.

Sailing along historic waterways onboard your floating luxury hotel, you’ll see some of the most enchanting places in the world up close. Your proximity to the shore means that colorful hillside villages, picturesque castles, and ancient ruins are within view from all areas of your intimate ship—the elegant restaurant, the welcoming lounge, the inviting sun deck, and your own beautifully appointed stateroom.

River cruising offers an unparalleled level of convenience, as you often dock right in the heart of town, mere steps away from charming squares, magnificent cathedrals, and bustling market places. You’ll never wait in long lines to get on or off the ship; you’ll never tender into port; you’ll never spend long hours wave watching on a vast ocean (which is inescapable on larger cruise ships); and you’ll never experience rough water or motion sickness—only smooth and peaceful sailing throughout your journey.

Unpack. Unwind. And leave the rest to Uniworld. And with so much INCLUDED—captivating shore excursions hosted by the best local guides in the industry; all meals onboard with complimentary European wines, draft beer, and soft drinks during dinner onboard; airport transfers on arrival and departure days; and so much more—you’ll have nothing to worry about except enjoying yourself as our highly trained, English-speaking staff pampers you with uncompromising service, anticipating your every need.
