After-Hours Visit Inside St. Mark’s Basilica
Uniworld guests have an exceptionally rare opportunity to observe a private after-hours lighting ceremony inside St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Italy. The lights serve to enhance the elaborately adorned interior of this beautiful church, a sight that’s especially resplendent when viewed after the daytime crowds have departed. Experience it on these itineraries: Gems of Northern Italy and Splendors of Italy.
Guided Kayaking on the Gardon River
“Go Active” as you paddle your own kayak on a guided excursion along the tranquil Gardon River. This is a delightful opportunity to view the UNESCO-listed, millennia-old Pont du Gard from a fresh, fun and truly unforgettable perspective. Experience it on “Burgundy & Provence” (May through September departures only).
Morning with the Masters
Venture inside the acclaimed Kunsthistorisches (Art History) Museum in Vienna for a special early opening and private tour. After viewing the Habsburg’s imperial treasures and works by Rubens, Rembrandt, Dürer, Titian and Tintoretto, enjoy a Bellini cocktail on the museum’s stunning cupola terrace. Experience it on “Enchanting Danube”.
Doktorenhof Vinegar Estate Visit & Tasting
Discover the complex, elegant and unexpectedly flavorful aperitifs made with premium wine vinegars at this unique estate’s atmospheric tasting room. The hooded monks’ robes, candlelit cellars and fascinating vinegar-inspired lore all contribute to a most memorable excursion in Germany. Experience it on these itineraries: Castles Along the Rhine and Legendary Rhine and Moselle
Artisanal Wine-Pairing Lunch at Chateau Royal de Cazeneuve
We treat our guests to a delectable wine-pairing lunch at Château de Cazeneuve, an 85-acre estate where local experts are happy to share their knowledge of Sauternes—the highly prized, golden-hued sweet wine that takes its name from the region. Experience it on these itineraries: “Bordeaux, Vineyards & Châteaux,” “A Portrait of Majestic France,” and ” Ultimate France.”
Concert, Dinner & Royal Ballroom Dancing in a Viennese Palace
There’s no better way to celebrate the holidays and the “City of Waltzes” than to spend a perfectly choreographed evening in a sumptuous Viennese palace. Enjoy a private concert of classical music by Austrian composers, a gourmet meal with fine wines and after-dinner dancing in an opulent Royal Ballroom. Experience it on select sailings of “Grand Christmas & New Year’s Cruise”.
