Setting sail from Cologne

Cologne is a wonderfully warm and welcoming city, its skyline dominated by one of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in Europe. It's also been here a very long time; although much of the city suffered heavy damage during the Second World War, you can still see remnants of the old Roman walls. You will likely spend most of your time in the attractive Altstadt (Old Town), home to beer halls aplenty and some fascinating museums.

Don't miss

Don’t even think of missing the cathedral, and pay the extra for the treasury. It is pretty special.

Arriving in Basel

Basel lies where Switzerland, France and Germany meet, a sophisticated and multicultural city with a picturesque setting astride the river Rhine. The medieval Old Town is exceptionally well preserved, best appreciated from the summit of the hilltop cathedral, which offers incredible views across the city. Basel boasts a wealth of museums and galleries, and plays host to events including the renowned Art Basel contemporary art fair, held during the summer, and Fasnacht, Switzerland's most famous winter carnival.

Our tip

The food here is great, with so many different influences. Try salmon ‘nach Basler Art’ (in a white wine marinade with fried onions), and wash it down with the local Riesling.

S.S. Antoinette
S.S. Antoinette
S.S. Antoinette suite

Uniquely designed and decorated, with an exceptional attention to detail, S.S. Antoinette has been crafted to reflect the specific area in which she operates.

What we love

Introduced in 2011 the S.S. Antionette was the first of Uniworld's most modern designed vessels to be launched. Individually decorated suites with cleverly designed French balconies open the rooms to the outside, and the outrageously over the top décor of the public spaces combines brilliantly with modern touches like the superb indoor heated pool at the back of the ship to provide a truly luxurious vessel.
