Last Minute Festive River Cruises

By guest blogger Steve Newman

There is still time to plan the festive season in the luxurious comfort of a Uniworld 2010 European Boutique River Cruise. Imagine storybook villages and majestic cities adorned with thousands of twinkling lights and stars, melodious carollers and choirs, magnificent cathedrals, opulent palaces, medieval castles and old world Christmas markets - all just a stroll away from your moored ship.

Uniworld’s festive River Cruises range from 8 to 14 days and take in Europe’s great rivers, including the Danube, Rhine and Main. Whether it is travelling through Germany along the Rhine and Main celebrating the origins of centuries-old traditions, discovering the elegant pageantry of four regal countries along the Danube, or welcoming 2011 in regal style in a Viennese palace, there is something unique for everyone.

Uniworld offers four expertly planned all-inclusive festive packages including:-

• Lavishly appointed river-view staterooms
• All meals with complimentary fine European wine, choice of beer and soft drinks served during dinner
• Special celebratory dining events
• Captivating shore excursions hosted by English-speaking local guides
• Festive onboard entertainment and Signature Lectures
• All transfers on arrival and departure days.

Prices start from £1,925 per person, including return scheduled flights and UK door-to-door airport transfers.

And solo travellers can cruise at no additional charge as Uniworld has waived single supplements on selected festive season departures.
