Europe and Mediterranean: European Holiday Markets Cruise

Uniworld Boutique River Cruises

Experience Europe's old-world charms during the most magical time of the year. This cruise takes you to some of the most famous and delightful holiday markets in Central Europe. At each market, you'll find wooden stalls displaying traditional crafts that range from quirky little characters made of fruit and dressed in Bavarian costume to beautifully carved and painted Nativity figures. You'll also find exquisite ornaments and fine contemporary crafts, along with fairytale villages decked in holiday finery. Sparkling lights illuminate ancient cathedral squares and the sound of children's laughter mingles with carols. Enjoy Uniworld's exclusive "Taste of Christmas" program in Vienna, where you'll see astonishing confectionary decorations in Café Demel's windows. Celebrate the season in a new way as you meander through old lands.

Not Yet Rated

In Spring 2018, the River Beatrice reemerges as the S.S. Beatrice, after an extensive bow-to-stern renovation. The S.S. Beatrice debuts a fresh, sleek look with a graceful bow, redesigned lounge and an elegant grand staircase. Additional dining venues include a private space to replace the Captain's Lounge and Library. Two new Royal Suites measuring 375 square feet and an additional Owner's Suite were created. Several connecting rooms, ideal for families traveling together, were also added.
