I suppose you think river cruising is for old-timers slowing down and watching the world pass them by. End-of-lifers making one last pass through the old bucket list and hitting some European destinations at a gentle pace.
Uniworld certainly has a different idea about that. The boutique all-inclusive river cruise line sure impresses me, a still-spry and nearly 49-year-old (March 15 in case you want to get me a birthday present) with its Wellness Program.
Indeed, river cruising typically means exploring the world in relaxed comfort, with most of your physical activity coming in the form of walking tours. But Uniworld mixes it up and adds activities and amenities that appeal to those of us who love to stick to a workout regimen. You don't find many programs like these on the rivers, so this is awesome because taking care of our bodies is important, especially as we age and aim to keep on traveling around the world.
The all-inclusive line sails on 22 rivers in 26 countries, including voyages all over Europe, in Russia, China, Vietnam and Cambodia.
