As the new year begins, Luxury Travel Advisor has selected the “Top Three Developments” for major luxury river lines for 2020 and 2021. What are the top “threads” of change? Here’s a look.
Building on its success in “the exotics,” Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is extending its reach farther across the globe. For our top development for 2020 and beyond with Uniworld, we cite two new itineraries in the Peruvian Amazon, a totally new region of sailing for the luxury river line. Guests will set sail on the 16-suite Aria Amazon, starting in late September 2020.
Travelers on the new 15-day “Peruvian Amazon & Machu Picchu Exploration” itinerary will first stay in a five-star hotel in Lima, Peru; it will be followed by a seven-night cruise through the Amazon rainforest, and end with travel in Peru’s Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Alternatively, the 11-day “Peruvian Rivers & Rainforest Discovery” itinerary includes Lima time plus Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve and an Amazon voyage roundtrip from Iquitos.
