RIVER TO RAIL: Uniworld to Combine Cruise, Land and Train for 2021

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection will introduce two new itineraries that incorporate cruise, land and train travel for 2021. In partnership with Golden Eagle Luxury Trains, our guests will travel through Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia; these packages offer the opportunity to explore a variety of destinations across several countries in one journey, combining major cities with little-known destinations.

“At Uniworld, we are constantly looking for ways to elevate the intimate destination experience our guests appreciate and quite frankly, expect,” says Thomas Harrison, Sales Director Nordic.  “Like river cruising, luxury train travel is an opportunity to bring our guests to the heart of Europe with a view that changes daily.  Train travel is a trend where we are very much at the forefront and are thrilled to be using this opportunity to broaden Uniworld’s horizon’s and explore new destinations the brand has yet to travel to.”

The new itineraries include the 12-day Cruise & Rail: Venice & the Swiss Alps starting with a train trip from Zurich to Venice and then a round-trip cruise on La Venezia. Both itineraries provide guests with the new opportunity to travel onboard the luxury train as it runs along the Lake of Zurich stopping in destinations such as the medieval town of Lienz, the picturesque Lake Bled with a Pletna rowing trip to Bled Island, and a tour of the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana. Excursion highlights will include detraining for a visit to Gutenberg Castle in the town of Balzers, Liechtenstein; and enjoying an evening with a private concert in the caves of Postojna.

Uniworld’s Cruise & Rail 2021 itineraries are on sale with prices starting at $9,999 per person departing on 27 October 2021. The first voyage beginning on 1 August 2021.

Just like the Uniworld experience, the train journeys are five-star and all-inclusive including all transfers, meals, drinks, excursions and gratuities, and all accommodations include a private in-suite bathroom. The itineraries were created with sustainable tourism in mind, seeking to impact the destinations positively by taking our guests to local restaurants and letting them experience hidden-gem villages in addition to the popular cities.
