By guest blogger Steve Newman.

Conde Nast Traveler has just announced their prestigious 2011 Gold List winners for the world's finest hotels, resorts and cruise lines and Uniworld Boutique River Cruises was included in the "World's Top Cruise Lines" category.

There is a total of 13 lines on the Gold List, with Uniworld being the only cruise line focusing 100 per cent on river cruising. The List is based on data collected from Conde Nast Traveler's annual Readers' Choice Survey by more than 25,000 of their readers.

"I am deeply honoured that Uniworld has been recognised once again in Conde Nast's prestigious Gold List. For the last several years, we have been consistently included on this list, and this reaffirms our commitment to delivering the best river cruise experience possible to our guests," said Matt Clapson, General Manager of Uniworld UK. "I am also very proud to be included in a list of well-respected cruise lines such as Crystal, Silversea, Seabourn and Regent."

Uniworld features elegant, boutique hotel-style ships designed for the experienced traveller, with an average capacity of 134 guests, expertly planned itineraries with custom-blended, included shore excursions, world-class cuisine and award-winning hospitality from an all-English speaking staff, with a ratio of one staff member to every three guests.
