Uniworld Boutique River Cruise – Bordeaux, Vineyards & Chateaux

UW_RR_FR_Exterior_9682

Uniworld, the only authentic boutique river cruise line, are the ultimate choice for a river cruise.

River cruises give you the advantage of seeing many towns and villages from your bedroom window, unlike ocean cruises, every day you will experience a different view. For anyone who has cruised before, you will love the fact that with river cruising you can dock in the heart of a town or village, avoid queueing to get on and off the ship and lengthy coach trips for excursions. This convenient way of travelling as well as the relaxed pace and intimate atmosphere, are why river cruising is one of the fastest growing markets within the travel industry.

So why Uniworld?

Uniworld’s ships are literally like floating boutique hotels. Their sister company Red Carnation Hotels, own many of the top boutique hotels throughout the world (including Ashford Castle.) Once you step onboard a Uniworld cruise ship, you get the feeling you are checking in to somewhere special. The lavish designs, outstanding service, spacious staterooms and mouthwatering meals distinguish Uniworld from other river cruise lines. These are just some of the reasons Uniworld have won numerous awards, such as the best luxury cruise line, for the past seven years. The pace onboard is very relaxed and you have the choice to chill out and have some quiet time or mix with fellow passengers in the stylish bar. Similar to luxury hotels, expect the finest quality linens, marble bathrooms stocked with l’Occitane products and “No request too large, no detail too small” is the motto of the Uniworld staff, so prepare to be pampered!

Although Uniworld’s sale offers many cruises at discounted prices, I fell in love with this particular one!  Sail three rivers, the Garonne, the Dordogne, and the Gironde and visit Bordeaux, Bergerac, Medoc and the stunning hill top village of Saint-Émilion. Experience the culinary delights of each region with some of the world’s leading wines, meet the winemakers and enjoy a wine-pairing lunch at Châteaux d’Arche. Chef’s prepare each meal to coincide with the local wines making this particular cruise a mouthwatering culinary experience. There are numerous top class excursions included in the price or choose to go it alone, use their bicycles and explore this breathtaking scenery your own way.Uniworld Boutique River Cruise, Bordeaux, Vineyards and Chateaux by Sarah Slattery, The Travel Expert
