Uniworld to launch European river cruises on June 20
Uniworld Boutique River Cruises will begin European river cruises on June 20, 2021.
The cruise line will begin cruises with its brand new SS Super Ship La Venezia in Italy. These cruises will be followed by crossings in France with departures starting aboard the SS Bon Voyage on June 27. The SS Joie de Vivre will start sailing on July 4 and the SS Catherine on July 11.

Uniworld made the decision to start sailing in France and Italy after the two countries announced they would welcome American travelers in June.
âWe have been waiting for this moment and are delighted to be back on the rivers, welcoming our loyal guests once again to four of our finest Super Ships this summer,â said Ellen Bettridge, President and CEO of Uniworld. âOur guests are like family to us and their safety is our top priority, which is why we take every precaution to ensure they are comfortable when they are ready to explore the rivers again with we.”
Uniworld’s first itinerary will start on June 18 with Milan, Venice and the gems of northern Italy.
Guests will spend two days in Milan before heading to Venice to board the SS La Venezia, which was reinvented by famous Italian artist and textile designer Mariano Fortuny. The ship now offers more suites, more dining rooms with social distancing space and more luxurious finishes, while maintaining its high crew-to-guest ratio.
âRestarting these routes is just the first step in getting all of our ships back on the rivers this year,â Bettridge said. âWe have a lot to look forward to with the all-new SS Sphinx launching in Egypt on September 25, and we will also begin cruising the Peruvian Amazon on September 1 with two new routes aboard the Aria Amazon. Demand for river cruises is at an all time high and the support and enthusiasm we are receiving from new and old customers is exceptional. “
The first four sailings of 2021 are included in the Cruise Back Into Travel offer, which is valid for bookings through May 31, 2021. Customers can save up to 30% per person on certain dates for a limited time.
