Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has released its 2017 Asia Cruises and Tours in India, China, Vietnam and Cambodia.
For 2017, Uniworld will be using only all-suite ships in Asia, said Uniworld President Guy Young. The river cruise line will introduce the all-suite Mekong Navigator in Vietnam and Cambodia, and in China, it will provide Executive Suites on the Century Legend. In India, Uniworld will offer itineraries on the newly inaugurated all-suite Ganges Voyager II.
Uniworld's Asia cruises in 2017 will combine must-see destinations, such as India’s Taj Mahal, China’s Great Wall and Cambodia’s Angkor Wat, with off-the-beaten-path options in small group excursions led by expert guides. In addition to all-suite accommodations onboard the line's ships, guests will also stay onshore at five-star hotels.
Uniworld’s 15-day “Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong,” sailing on the new, 68-passenger Mekong Navigator, and offering onshore accommodations in the Park Hyatt Saigon and the Victoria Angkor Resort & Spa, Siem Reap, will start in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City and end in Hanoi. The cruise will stop at Cambodia’s Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, gateway to the UNESCO-designated Angkor Wat.
Uniworld's 11-day “Highlights of China & the Yangtze” ; 14-day “China, Tibet & the Yangtze”; and 18-day “Grand China & the Yangtze” will offer accommodations in Executive Suites onboard the Century Legend and onshore at the Ritz-Carlton Beijing and the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai. Excursions range from the Great Wall, Xi’an’s Terra Cotta Warriors, the Forbidden City and Tibet’s Potala Palace to the Yangtze Three Gorges, Guilin’s Reed Flute Caves and Hangzhou’s Westlake.
Uniworld’s 13-day “India’s Golden Triangle & the Sacred Ganges” includes five nights onshore at three Oberoi Hotels & Resorts in Agra, Jaipur and New Delhi, and seven nights onboard the new 56-passenger, all-suite ship Ganges Voyager II. Highlights include the Taj Mahal; Jaipur’s City Palace; New Delhi’s Humayun’s Tomb; Gandhi’s black granite memorial and Mother Teresa’s tomb; India’s “Temple City,” Kalna; and the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium.
