CENTURY CRUISES PARTNERS WITH UNIWORLD
Beginning in 2013, Uniworld Will Operate All of Their Yangtze River Cruises Onboard the 5-Star Cruise Lines’ Two New Builds, the “Century Paragon” and the “Century Legend”
Century Cruises , a leading Yangtze River cruise line, has announced the signing of a contract with Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection . The world’s only authentic boutique cruise line™, Uniworld is recognized among the “World’s Best River Cruises” by Travel + Leisure. The company was also voted the “#1 River Cruise Line in the World” in Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards, and was named to Condé Nast Traveler’s prestigious Gold List and their Platinum Circle for having made the list consistently for the past five years.
Uniworld offers a variety of China experiences that combine Yangtze River cruises with visits to major cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, and Xi’an. Under the agreement with Century, all of Uniworld’s 2013 and 2014 Yangtze River cruise programs will include accommodations and amenities in Uniworld’s own branded section of the new, state-of-the art Century Paragon and Century Legend. Uniworld guests will stay in Uniworld Signature Suites and will treated to a host of exclusive onboard services.
The Century Paragon and Legend will offer Uniworld guests an unmatched level of comfort, luxury, and relaxation never before experienced on the Yangtze. Among their many firsts, the vessels feature the largest Standard Deluxe Cabins on the Yangtze, two exclusive Executive Decks, and a huge indoor pool/spa area. The vessels also boast such technological innovations as the first integrated E-Propulsion and Rudder Propeller System on the Yangtze, substantially reducing vibration and noise, and significantly increasing the ships’ maneuvering capability.
And with “Green” technology features such as the extensive use of high-tech compound panels for interior decoration and furniture, the Paragon and Legend offer passengers a true sense of healthy cruising.
“We are extremely proud that Uniworld has chosen to partner with Century Cruises. It is fitting that one of the top river cruise operators in the United States will be among the first to feature the newest vessels in our luxurious, 5-star fleet”, commented Alex Ye, Century’s Vice President, Marketing.
