River Cruise Itinerary

Uncover the best-kept secret in river cruising, the Moselle, as you sail past some of Europe’s most serene, village-dotted and vineyard-lined landscapes. Savor a one-of-a-kind experience in historic Speyer, where you’ll be treated to a private vinegar tasting at a captivating estate. Explore Cochem’s castle-dotted hillsides. See Germany’s oldest town, Trier, and learn about its rich Roman history on a panoramic walking tour that includes the Emperor Bath, Constantine Basilica, and Karl Marx’s birthplace. Or embark on a tour of the neighboring country of Luxembourg and get a feel for its warm, welcoming atmosphere on a tour of its capital. Discover Baden-Baden, a city so stunning that they named it twice. Baden-Baden was once a meeting place for Europe’s rich and famous because of its stunning natural wonders and the healing qualities of the thermal waters there. And revel in the picture-perfect winemaking villages of Bernkastel and Boppard. Along the way, you’ll enjoy countless wellness opportunities and excursions, and can enjoy our Traveling Lite menu onboard, featuring dishes with fewer calories as well as vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. Let the enthralling Moselle and Rhine captivate you.

  1. Day 1
    Frankfurt (Embark)
    Mon, Jul 17, 2023
    Arrive at Frankfurt Airport. If your cruise package includes a group arrival transfer or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer, you will be greeted by a Uniworld representative and transferred to the ship.
  2. Day 2

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  3. Day 3
    Cochem
    Wed, Jul 19, 2023
    Perhaps one of Germany’s most colorful cities, Cochem feels just like a storybook with its dramatic castle, impressive landscapes and pastel-colored shops, restaurants and buildings lining the banks of the Moselle. Perched high above on a cliff sits the brilliant Cochem Castle, or Reichsburg Cochem, which brings German history and culture to life and provides panoramic views of the Moselle and Cochem below, which you’ll have the chance to see today on a walking tour of the city.

Explore by foot its scenic streets, taverns and vineyards, and enjoy a tasting of exceptional regional Rieslings. Aside from the medieval marketplace, a must-see is the Graach Gate, the last remaining town gate of Bernkastel-Kues. Its original purpose was that of protection, helping to ward off foreign aggression in the 1300s, but now it’s a museum of local history and a beloved landmark. If a bike is your transportation of choice, cycle along the dreamy paths of the Middle Moselle.

Health and Safety Protocols for Uniworld

Uniworld approaches every cruise with that same thorough diligence. Stringent security and sanitation protocols onboard our ships are nothing new to us. They not only remain top priorities but are being escalated as we face the current challenge. As more information is provided from Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) Uniworld will look to adopt their health and safety recommendations and continue to update for your added peace of mind.

SAFETY & SECURITY PROTOCOLS

  • All outside doors and access to the interior of the ships are locked when docked. Only registered guests can access the ship using a key card.
  • All guests and luggage are verified against the manifest at check-in.
  • Guests have 24/7 access to the front desk.
  • Key card scanners with facial recognition are utilized at the gangway.
  • Cameras are present at the entrance of the ship and in public areas, and are monitored by the reception staff.
  • Trained security staff are posted at the gangway 24 hours a day.
  • Ships are patrolled by trained staff 24/7.
  • All deliveries are thoroughly inspected before being brought onboard.

HEALTH & SANITATION PROTOCOLS

PLEASE NOTE: While Uniworld believes these protocols to be the appropriate steps in protecting the wellbeing of guests and crew, they will continue to evaluate and make changes if they are deemed to be ineffective or if they negatively impact the wellbeing of guests and crew. Uniworld is actively reviewing additional health and sanitation steps and will add them to these protocols upon approval.

GENERAL MEASURES:

This was our third river cruise with Uniworld and all have been excellent on every count. Cabin, dining, excursions, and service are all superior. All crew members contributed to making the passengers feel welcome and well cared for. We feel that Uniworld provides a good value for their products.

Value for money, though it may seems expensive compared to other cruise operators. Though the ship, River Queen, is built in 1999, but it is well maintained

Uniworld is always a class act. They have changed this itinerary slightly for 2019. It is a little shorter and focuses more on the Moselle, which is the more scenic of the 2 rivers.

Very pleased with the courtesy and professionalism shown throughout the process.

UnIworld River Cruise was outstanding. Even better than we thought. Everything was great.

Uniworld team was truly outstanding. They made you feel at home and personalized their service well beyond most expectations. An exceptional experience!

Uniworld is a wonderful provider. I was treated in every way like a queen. The staff is courteous, professional, and caring. Anytime one of your travelers is waffling on a river cruise provider, send them my way for the highest recommendation of Uniworld!
