Uniworld’s Limited Edition Collection includes:

Mystery Cruises

Uniworld is bringing back its Mystery Cruise offerings, with two all-new surprise "Mystery Cruises" departing June 18, 2023, and July 7, 2023. The 10-day trips are a mystery and both completely different, with exciting surprises and over-the-top inclusions at every turn. New this year, guests will be told the airports that they will need to fly in and out of, for the opportunity to extend their European vacation. Plus, Uniworld’s president and CEO, Ellen Bettridge, will be hosting the July departure to join guests on the fun.

Mystery Revealed: Salzburg & The Danube

The "Mystery Revealed: Salzburg & The Danube" is a one-time-only repeat of Uniworld’s fall 2022 Mystery Cruise, departing June 2, 2023. The 10-day trip starts with a private, two-day stay at the Salzburg Hotel Übergossene Alm followed by a cruise through Austria, Germany, Slovakia, and Hungary on the S.S. Maria Theresa. Special onboard events and onshore excursions include a reception with an Austrian Count in his ancestral castle, an after-hours viewing of Klimt masterpieces at the Belvedere, an onboard Bavarian theme night and more.
