The ships in Uniworld's river cruise collection are each one-of-a-kind, inspired by the beauty, colours and landscapes of the destinations guests will visit. From handcrafted furniture commissioned exclusively for Uniworld, to custom-made fabrics and fixtures created by some of the most esteemed design houses in the world and original artwork from the likes of Picasso, Matisse and Degas, guests will enjoy an ultra-luxurious holiday as they wake up each morning to the wonders of Europe awaiting right outside the window.

Uniworld's all-inclusive holidays are a great way for families to spend quality time together onboard a "floating boutique hotel" and they will receive VIP treatment throughout their journey. For the Uniworld staff and crew, "No request is too large, no detail too small" - from organising a surprise for a loved one celebrating an anniversary or birthday to arranging for tickets to a hard-to-get show, these tiny noticeable touches are simply their way of ensuring that guests will have an unforgettable experience. Unlimited beverages are served onboard, including an amazing selection of incredible local wines, champagne, craft beer and premium liquor with complimentary Wifi access throughout the ship, and all gratuities included, so that guests do not have to tip local guides. Uniworld's all-inclusive fares even include complimentary 24-hour room service.

One of Uniworld's most popular itineraries, the eight-day Castles along the Rhine visits four countries: The Netherlands, France, Germany and Switzerland. Guests will travel onboard the SS Antoinette, a 443-foot, 154-passenger ship featuring luxurious décor with fine Brazilian marble on the walls and Savoir® of England beds in its lavishly appointed rooms

Step into a different world when you enter the ship's two-storey lobby where a stunning 10-foot blue Strauss Baccarat chandelier with huge sapphires is the centrepiece, and an impressive 19th-century Venetian glass mirror hanging above the reception desk adds to the ship's distinctive personality. The ship has a stylish full-service bar "Bar du Leopard", a glass-enclosed mosaic-tiled pool, a 22-seater onboard cinema, and top deck suites and staterooms that have fully open-air private balconies which can convert into enclosed conservatories.

Find inspiration as you journey, with Rhine-Germany on one side, and France on the other. Admire the soul-stirring landscape shaped by time and history as spires of medieval churches and castles appear around each bend in the river, and vineyards climb the verdant hillsides.
