A River of Myth & Legend
The Rhine River Valley seems straight out of the pages of a storybook, a land of half-timbered houses, fairytale castles, and ruined fortresses looming atop craggy hills. There’s no better way to explore this magical place than onboard a luxurious Uniworld river cruise, enjoying gracious service, Signature Lectures by local historians, and a choice of expertly-led excursions—many exclusive to our guests. Standing on the top deck, watching the scenery turn increasingly dramatic, you’ll be captivated by the tale of Loreley, the beautiful maiden who seduced sailors with her siren songs. And who could blame them? No doubt you too will fall under the spell of the bewitching Rhine…
Senses stirred and spirits rekindled, you venture down to the ship’s dining room to see what culinary delights await. Breakfasts and lunches are lavish affairs onboard every Uniworld journey, with something to tantalize every palate. Relax over pre-dinner drinks in the lounge, where the bartender remembers your companion likes Grey Goose martinis, and that you prefer Glenfiddich served neat. Make it a double—drinks are complimentary on this all-inclusive cruise. Dinner is a sumptuous multi-course feast of regionally-inspired dishes paired with distinctive local wines. For dessert, perhaps a slice of Black Forest Cake or other luscious local favorite is the ideal way to end a meal—and a day—that has truly surpassed all expectations.
