Curious about the Amazon Rainforest? Want to delve into the heart of South America but not sure where to start?
Why not jet off to Lima, Peru’s coastal capital city, and begin the adventure of a lifetime sailing down the Amazon River? Perhaps with an intrepid exploration of the iconic Inca Trail and Machu Picchu thrown in there too!
We are all aware that climate change is an issue in our lives and the need to be more sustainable is ever growing. This is why many cruise lines have taken the initiative to make themselves ‘greener’ and even strive for carbon neutrality in the coming years.
Never having been to Egypt before a Nile river cruise is one of those iconic bucket list cruises that we knew we wanted to do at some point and the Uniworld voyage seemed to offer us the best of both worlds with a pre and post cruise stay in Cairo sandwiching a cruise down the Nile from Luxor to Aswan.
Arriving in the heart of Bordeaux we could see from the dockside that the SS Bon Voyage had a unique style, standing out from the other river ships with her bright blue, playfully designed top deck. Stepping aboard the first thing that struck us was the opulence and grandeur of the reception area, perfectly melding luxurious highly polished, glossy wood furnishings with local affectations, including two enormous ornate vases magnificently displaying the most gorgeous bunch of sunflowers ever and a large, vibrant wall mosaic depicting a typical French countryside.
A few years ago I was lucky enough to sail on Uniworld's majestic River Princess along the beautiful Danube. As well as the river itself being a big tick off my bucket list (who doesn't want to sail down the beautiful blue Danube?!) the cruise was made even better by sailing with one of the best ultra-luxury cruise brands in the world.
Uniworld takes river cruising to a whole new level. Ultra-luxury, truly unique and individual ships, exquisite cuisine, and 6-star service make Uniworld a privilege to sail with.
The Tolman family, Uniworld’s founder and owners, are still involved in the careful presentation of all aspects of the product, from ship design and décor to the menus in the restaurants.
