There’s no better way to celebrate the start of summer than by taking a 46-night trip along some of the world’s most picturesque rivers. Uniworld Boutique River Cruises just announced a new “Rivers of the World” cruise that takes passengers to nine countries aboard five separate ships. Although it doesn’t set sail until 2023, it’s never too early to start planning, and to be honest, we could all use an epic vacation to look forward to these days.
The voyage starts aboard the S.S. Sphinx in Egypt and continues to the Venice Lagoon and Po River aboard the S.S. La Venezia. From there, you’ll travel to Hungary and sail from Budapest to Passau on the S.S. Maria Theresa. Then you’ll explore France aboard the S.S. Joie de Vivre along the Seine, and cap off your journey in Portugal on the S.S. Sao Gabriel through the Douro River Valley.
Along the way, you’ll visit the UNESCO-protected temples of Abu Simbel in Cairo, Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna, Moulin Rouge in Paris, and other iconic sites.
The maiden voyage will set sail on May 20, 2023. The all-inclusive itinerary also includes land excursions, and a dedicated concierge who will assist guests at every step. Predictably, the experience won’t come cheap. The trip starts at $38,000 per person.
