Uniworld Elevates Luxury River Cruising in Asia
with All-Suite Ships and Five-Star Hotels

DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Jan. 27, 2016 – Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, the world’s only authentic boutique cruise line, recently released their 2017 Asia Cruises and Tours in India, China, Vietnam and Cambodia. The collection features five expertly crafted itineraries designed to take travelers on epic journeys through these exotic lands. Must-see treasures—India’s Taj Mahal, China’s Great Wall and Cambodia’s Angkor Wat—as well as hidden gems that only the rivers can reveal come to life in small group excursions led by expert guides. Exploring ancient wonders by day and enjoying unsurpassed luxury at night, onboard elegantly appointed all-suite ships with exclusive VIP benefits and onshore at five-star hotels, ensures traveling with Uniworld is the ultimate way to experience Asia.

“When people travel with Uniworld, they can be assured a seamless luxury experience from land to river,” said Guy Young, president of Uniworld. “We made the decision for 2017 to use only all-suite ships in Asia. In Vietnam and Cambodia, we’re introducing the all-suite Mekong Navigator; in China, we are providing magnificent Executive Suites on the Century Legend; and in India, we’re sailing the newly inaugurated all-suite Ganges Voyager II. Each ship offers the highest standards of excellence in these regions.

Uniworld’s 15-day “Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong” presents a deep exploration of two worlds joined by one river. Uniworld will introduce the 68-passenger, all-suite Mekong Navigator. Fashioned in the spirit of the French Colonial-era manor homes that once lined the streets of Old Saigon, this is the most luxurious ship sailing the Mekong . Accommodations onshore include the Park Hyatt Saigon and the Victoria Angkor Resort & Spa, Siem Reap. Uncover the tale of these two countries starting in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City, capital of the past, and ending in Hanoi, capital of the present. In between these two iconic cities lies Cambodia’s Phnom Penh and Siem Reap—gateway to the UNESCO-designated Angkor Wat—along with an abundance of authentic and immersive encounters with the locals.

Time travel through the land of the dragon, China, in grand style with Executive Suites measuring 415 sq. ft. onboard the Century Legend and onshore at world-renowned properties, such as the Ritz-Carlton Beijing and the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai. Uniworld offers 11-day “Highlights of China & the Yangtze” ; 14-day “China, Tibet & the Yangtze”; and 18-day “Grand China & the Yangtze.” Excursions range from the man-made marvels—Great Wall, Xi’an’s Terra Cotta Warriors, the Forbidden City and Tibet’s Potala Palace—to its natural wonders—the Yangtze Three Gorges, Guilin’s Reed Flute Caves and Hangzhou’s Westlake.

Uniworld’s 13-day “India’s Golden Triangle & the Sacred Ganges” includes five nights onshore at three award-winning Oberoi Hotels & Resorts in Agra, Jaipur and New Delhi, and seven nights onboard the new 56-passenger all-suite ship Ganges Voyager II. Highlights include: the Taj Mahal; Jaipur’s City Palace; New Delhi’s Humayun’s Tomb; Gandhi’s black granite memorial and Mother Teresa’s tomb; India’s “Temple City,” Kalna; and the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium.
