Uniworld Boutique River Cruises has announced new ‘Nights Out’ evening experiences throughout Europe for 2022. 

The five excursions are private offerings solely for Uniworld guests, "showcasing top European cities in a new light," the company said on Wednesday (Sept. 29). 

These experiences will be implemented into Uniworld’s all-inclusive itineraries and were co-curated by the Uniworld team and the brand’s extensive local connections on the ground. 

For 2023, ‘Nights Out’ excursions will be included on all of Uniworld’s European cruises.

“We’re thrilled to introduce our first five immersive ‘Nights Out’ evening experiences, that really dive into the the culture, history and traditions of some of the most incredible European cities,” said Ellen Bettridge, president and CEO of Uniworld. “After receiving wonderful guest feedback from our nighttime excursions in Venice and Vienna, we built out an introductory portfolio to explore these fascinating cities in a unique and romantic way. Our guests really helped us to bring this collection to life and we’re looking forward to expanding it even further in 2023 and beyond." 

2022 ‘Nights Out’ excursions include:

Vienna

Private Mozart & Strauss Concert: Uniworld guests will spend an evening discovering legendary composers Mozart & Strauss’ hometown of Vienna with an entirely private concert highlighting their best works on the Enchanting Danube itinerary. 

The concert will be held in Albert Hall, one of the best venues in Vienna known for its incredible acoustics and stunning architecture.

Venice 

After-Hours Visit to St. Mark’s Basilica: Travellers will explore one of the most fascinating churches in the world, St. Mark’s Basilica, after-hours sans the crowds on the Milan, Venice & the Gems of Northern Italy itinerary.
