Uniworld Boutique River Cruises has introduced new ‘Nights Out’ evening experiences in select European cities as part of its 2022 Europe program.
Initially, five private excursions in Vienna, Venice, Amsterdam, Basel and Cochem will be offered solely for Uniworld guests, showcasing those cities in a new light.
These experiences will be implemented into Uniworld’s all-inclusive itineraries, and were specially co-curated by the Uniworld team and the brand’s extensive local connections on the ground. For 2023, ‘Nights Out’ excursions will be included on all of Uniworld’s European cruises.
“We’re thrilled to introduce our first five immersive ‘Nights Out’ evening experiences, that really dive into the culture, history and traditions of some of the most incredible European cities,” said Ellen Bettridge, President and CEO of Uniworld Boutique River Cruises.
“After receiving wonderful guest feedback from our nighttime excursions in Venice and Vienna, we built out an introductory portfolio to explore these fascinating cities in a unique and romantic way. Our guests really helped us to bring this collection to life and we’re looking forward to expanding it even further in 2023 and beyond,” Bettridge said.
The 2022 ‘Nights Out’ excursions include:
Private Mozart & Strauss Concert
Uniworld guests will spend an evening discovering legendary composers Mozart & Strauss’ hometown of Vienna with an entirely private concert highlighting their best works on the Enchanting Danube itinerary. The concert will be held in Albert Hall, one of the best venues in Vienna known for its incredible acoustics and stunning architecture.
Tour and Tasting at Feldschlösschen Brewery
On the Remarkable Rhine & Historic Holland itinerary, Uniworld guests will discover the tradition of Swiss brewing with a private experience at one of the oldest factories in Europe. Available on the Amsterdam to Basel route of the itinerary, travellers will visit Feldschlösschen Brewery, a stunning Swiss landmark with 145 years of history boasting its original copper brewing barrels, while sampling brews along the way.
Surprise Evening Canal Cruise
On Uniworld’s new Dutch Delight itinerary, guests will float along Amsterdam’s iconic canals in a one- of-a-kind way. The private ‘Nights Out’ excursion features an intimate boat ride along the canals with unique surprise entertainment stops that showcase the culture and talents of the destination and its locals.
After-Hours Visit to St. Mark’s Basilica
Travellers will explore one of the most fascinating churches in the world, St. Mark’s Basilica, after-hours less the crowds on the Milan, Venice & the Gems of Northern Italy itinerary. Led by an expert art historian, Uniworld guests will learn the captivating history behind the 9th-century church known as the “Church of Gold,” originally built to house sacred relics featuring incredible interiors, jewels and over 85 thousand square feet of mosaics created primarily with gold.
Evening at Cochem Castle
Uniworld guests will spend an evening high above the Moselle River at Cochem Castle, also known as “Pearl of the Moselle” aboard the Rhine, Moselle & Blissful Baden Baden itinerary. Formerly used as a fortress that would house 40 to 50 thousand knights at a time, the castle is perched on a mountain surrounded by vineyards as far as the eye can see. Uniworld guests will indulge in a private reception in the baroque era castle featuring a musical performance and wine variety native to the region.
