Could a cruise – visiting a string of exciting destinations – be the perfect family holiday? With Uniworld’s focus on families, the answer is most definitely ‘yes’.
When you think about it, a Uniworld cruise is a real family-pleaser. Firstly there’s the excitement of sailing off into the sunset aboard a magnificent white ship. There are loads of activities on board, and any number of new friends to make. There is great food, purposely created to appeal to palates of all ages, from four to eighty four years old. There are adventures on board, as well as on the horizon, to keep the kids busy so parents can relax.
And then there are the destinations. Uniworld visits some of the most fascinating destinations on the entire continent. The tulips, windmills, cafés and art galleries of Amsterdam, for example. The fairytale castles perched high above the Rhine. The architecture of Prague, the beaches of Portugal, the concerts and operas of Vienna, the multi-spired mosques of Istanbul and the canals of Venice.
They are the places to go, here are the things to do: Biking and hiking with local guides, white water rafting and Segway riding, cable car and ferris wheel rides, amusement parks and a gladiator school (in Rome!), glass-blowing and gingerbread housebuilding, technik museums and riding schools, pasta workshops and cookery classes, medieval castles and dungeons, justice museums and ghost walks, spy games and, well, everything.
