Uniworld Boutique River Cruises is expanding their fleet in Asia for 2013. In partnership with Pandaw in Vietnam and Cambodia along the Mekong River, and Century River Cruises in China along the Yangtze River, river cruise guests will be able to choose from more itineraries and unique experiences.
In January 2012, Uniworld launched the River Saigon along the Mekong, and due to the increasing popularity of Vietnam and Cambodia, they will launch another new ship, River Orchid, in this region in 2013. Both of these new ships were designed in a French colonial motif reminiscent of the days from French Indochina. With only sixty guests, thirty staterooms, these two river ships offer guests more personalized service and ambiance.
“The demand for Vietnam and Cambodia has exceeded our expectations. We quickly sold out all of our departures in 2012, and so it made sense for us to add an additional ship along the Mekong,” states Guy Young, President of Uniworld Boutique River Cruises.
For guests who choose a cruise along the Yangtze, the new Century Legend and Century Paragon are considered five-star luxury ships. The Century Paragon and Legend will offer Uniworld guests an unmatched level of comfort, luxury, and relaxation never before experienced on the Yangtze. The many five-star features include an exclusive executive deck and a huge indoor pool/spa area. While cruising on either of these new ships in China, guests will stay in Uniworld Signature Suites, and will be treated to a host of exclusive VIP benefits available only to them.
Onshore Uniworld guests can expect the same five-star experience. Uniworld has arranged for their guests to stay in superior, centrally located five-star hotels throughout Asia all, of which offer luxurious accommodations, modern-day comforts, and impeccable hospitality.
“Uniworld wants to continue to offer our clients a well diversified portfolio of product offerings throughout the world, and we want to deliver to our guests the very best accommodations and amenities these regions have to offer,” adds Young. “We have also included many exclusive VIP benefits that are only available to our guests,” furthers Young.
If you are interested in an exotic and unique river cruise experience in Asia, Uniworld is offering a special saving promotion until September 30, 2012.
