THE Travel Corporation’s U by Uniworld brand has released details of its second season, including the debut of a new eight-day ‘Northern France at a Glance’ itinerary.
The first departure will take place on 21 Apr 2019, with The B taking guests along the Seine River with stops in Paris, Vernon, Les Andelys, Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, Rouen and Caudebec-en-Caux.
The Sun turnaround of the voyage also allows travellers to spend Fri and Sat night in Paris.
Excursions on offer include a visit to the beaches of Normandy, in time for the 75th anniversary of D-Day, along with a visit to the market in Rouen following the ship’s chef as he chooses dinner ingredients.
Uniworld’s other ship, The A, will cruise the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, with a range of new ‘U Time’ excursion options such as paddle boarding, canoeing or swimming in the Ilz River near the Danube bridge.
Hiking through Regensburg, visits to World War II sites in Linz and walking tours in Budapest will also be on offer.
Product enhancements on both ships will allow guests to camp out on the rooftop for an additional cost, complete with a nightcap cocktail and a breakfast picnic basket.
Uniworld president and ceo Ellen Bettridge said “we look forward to continuing the buzz and success of our inaugural season as we continue momentum into 2019”.
