Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has announced plans to introduce four new ships to its fleet over the next three years. The newbuild ships will launch on the Nile in Egypt, the Douro in Portugal and the Mekong in Vietnam in 2020, followed by a new ship on the Volga in Russia in 2021. 

The new ships will replace existing vessels in each destination, Uniworld said, with a design in line with the line’s Europe-based Super Ships. Uniworld also announced that it will be renovating and upgrading its River Countess vessel in Venice.

This announcement follows a number of recent ship transformations undertaken by the luxury cruise line, including the successful launch of the S.S. Joie de Vivre on the Seine in 2017 and Super Ship transformations of the S.S. Beatrice in 2018, and S.S. Bon Voyage which is set to sail in France in spring 2019. The vessels will have the signature touches and distinctive themes for which the company’s ships are known – more suites, more dining venues and more luxurious finishes.
