TORONTO — Uniworld has announced a new pre-cruise Oberammergau extension as well as a new sailing through the Netherlands for 2022.
In addition to the new offerings, the boutique cruise line is offering a 12% Early Booking Savings on 2022 sailings booked and paid in full by March 31, 2021. This offer is valid on all itineraries and, for the first time, will include Suite categories.
“We’re ready to bounce back and bring clients the experiences they deserve in 2022,” says Ellen Bettridge, President and CEO. “With last year’s Oberammergau being postponed, we’ve been working behind the scenes to ensure our pre-cruise extension offers our guests even more VIP access and inclusions than ever before.”
Due to COVID-19, the highly-anticipated 2020 Oberammergau Passion Play in the Bavarian Alps was postponed until 2022. Uniworld will offer its new pre-cruise Oberammergau extension on select sailings of S.S. Beatrice’s ‘Delightful Danube’ itinerary in conjunction to Oberammergau’s 42nd production, which runs from May 25 to Sept. 14, 2022.
The pre-cruise extension includes a morning of leisure in Oberammergau, a three-course dinner during the show, hotel transfer from Munich Airport, a one-night stay in Munich, a two-night stay in Oberammergau, premium reserved seating to the Passion Play, two dinners, transportation to and from the show, and more.
In 2022, Uniworld will launch a brand new ‘Dutch Delight’ itinerary, an eight-day sailing through the Netherlands. Highlights include visits to iconic Dutch cities like Amsterdam, the port town of Harlingen that’s known for its beaches, Nijmegen, the oldest city in the Netherlands, and more. The itinerary will also include access to the seventh international Horticultural Exhibition Floriade Expo 2022 on select dates, a decennial living laboratory with inspirational exhibitions by countries, cities and businesses sharing ideas for a greener way of life.
