River cruising may not be the first thing that comes to mind when planning a family vacation, but Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is offering up some spectacular savings for parents who want to take their kids (or teenagers) to Europe.
This summer, kids between the ages of 4 and 18 years old can travel for 50 percent off the cruise fare when traveling with another adult on four separate departure dates that span three itineraries:
- July 14, 2014 – Castles along the Rhine 8-day voyage from Basel, Switzerland to Amsterdam, Netherlands aboard River Queen
- July 13 & 27, 2014 – Paris & Normandy 8-day voyage departing roundtrip Paris, France aboard River Baroness.
- December 14, 2014 – Classic Christmas Markets 8-day voyage between Nuremberg, Germany and Frankfurt aboard River Queen.
What’s great about the itineraries that Uniworld has designated for this special offer is that they are already part of the line’s Multigenerational Family Friendly River Cruise program. On these voyages, kids can dine from a special menu created just for them that feature complimentary soft drinks during lunch and dinner.
They can also enjoy a special ship tour with the Captain or Hotel Manager, and families can play together using the PlayStation 2 or Nintendo Wii-equipped games room. Additionally, all Uniworld ships also feature onboard games and movies.
The kid’s menu looks pretty good as well.
Sample Children Dinner Menu Caesar Salad “Spiderman” Romaine lettuce with chicken stripes, croutons and parmesan shavings seasoned with Caesar dressing
“The Flying Dutchman” Deep fried breaded Gouda cheese with cranberry jam
“Pinocchio Salad” Sun-dried tomatoes with mozzarella drizzled with olive oil and balsamic
“Asterix Magic Elixir” Chicken consommé with vegetable stripes and vermicelli noodles (v)
Cheeseburger with French fries
Chicken wings with barbecue sauce and French fries

Dessert “Donald Duck” Homemade crêpe with strawberry jam and vanilla sauce

Of course, as with any other special offer, this one comes with a few simple restrictions: Only the select departure dates and itineraries above qualify for the special fares for kids aged 4 to 18, and is subject to availability and is capacity controlled. The usual blurb. But, Uniworld allows guests to combine this offer with their Pay-In-Full savings program; Early Booking Savings; and Past Guest savings program.
