UNIWORLD AWARDED NUMBER ONE SPOT IN Condé Nast TRAVeler’s Readers’ Choice Awards for RIVER CRUISE Lines.

Toronto -- Uniworld Boutique River Cruises wins Condé Nast Traveler’s 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards Number One Spot for River Cruises. This is the first time Condé Nast Traveler has had a separate river cruise category due to its increasing popularity, and Uniworld is honoured to be their readers’ top choice with a very high score 90.3. The Readers’ Choice Awards reflect the combined opinions of 28,876 discerning Condé Nast Traveler readers and are a unique and trusted source of advice globally. All award-winners are listed in the magazine’s November 2011 issue, and on their website.

“We are extraordinarily proud of this accomplishment as Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Award is one of the most prestigious honours recognizing the best-of-the-best in the travel industry,” said Guy Young, President of Uniworld Boutique River Cruises. “We work very hard to give our guests the best possible vacation experience on our beautifully and uniquely designed ships, and it is gratifying to know that our efforts have been recognized by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler.”

This latest award comes just weeks after Uniworld received multiple awards in the UK to include the “Best Dining” award from readers of Cruise International magazine and “Best Cruise Line” at the Guardian and Observer Readers Travel Awards 2011.

“Our ships are beautiful but, in my view, these accolades are achieved on the back of the fantastic service delivered on board our ships.  And for this I am truly grateful to our highly trained staff in Europe and other destinations where we operate who work so hard to meet or exceed the high expectations of our guests, “ said Young.

Uniworld has and will continue to invest heavily in its ships and in its service infrastructure.  On the horizon, Uniworld will launch the new 30 stateroom River Saigon in January 2012 on Vietnam and Cambodia’s Mekong River. Then in 2013, they will launch another luxury ship, River Orchid, on the Mekong, and the S.S. Alexandra on the Danube.
