We listen to our customers and know how important wellness is to
their daily lives, not only at home, but wherever they are in the world.
It's why we're so in tune with trends impacting health, fitness and
well-being, and committed to offering innovative ways for our guests
to continue on their path as part of their Uniworld experience.
-- Ellen Bettridge, President & CEO,

"

Expedition cruising isn't just for the super-fit.
Many ships are wheelchair accessible. Plus,
excursions are offered for all fitness levels, and
onboard historians, marine biologists, geologists
and other experts are on hand to give lectures
and informally share information at dinner and
around the ship, says McEvoy. "Thanks to its
alliance with National Geographic, Lindblad's
ships actually function as platforms for research
and science, with benefits for travelers like
our onboard photography program led
by National Geographic photographers on
every ship."
New this year, Base Camp Baja and Base
Camp Channel Islands (off San Diego),
4-night sailings in conjunction with Exhale
Spa, offers a taste of expedition cruising with a
strong wellness component.
Liz Dominguez, Dream Vacations franchise
owner and vacation specialist, says she is seeing
increased interest in the experiential travel
that expedition cruising offers in travelers of
all ages. "Knowing that they can leave the ship
to experience Kopar Village in Papua New
Guinea, but come back to a glass of fine Italian
wine and a gourmet meal is very attractive.
People aren't afraid to pay for a brag-worthy
experience that their neighbors haven't likely
done (yet!)." ■

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection

Wellness-Focused River Cruising
River cruising, with its emphasis on cultural exploration, small ships and inclusive pricing,
is similar in many ways to expedition cruising. Shipboard entertainment consists of port
briefings and cultural and historical programs, says Small. "Looking at these similarities,
it's an easy transition to shift interest from river cruising to expedition travel. We also see
the redirection in luxury lines like Crystal and Scenic, which are entering the expedition
travel niche."
At the same time, river cruising has been increasing its options for active and immersionseeking cruisers. "Yoga on deck as you float leisurely past ancient European towns? Yes,
please!" says Liz Dominguez, Dream Vacations franchise owner and vacation specialist.
It's part of AmaWaterways' Wellness Program, which will go fleetwide across Europe and
Southeast Asia in 2019, and includes guided hiking and biking excursions, and fitness
classes. Led by a dedicated Wellness Host on each ship, the Wellness Program offers guests
the opportunity to participate in group fitness classes-stretching, core strengthening
and resistance band training-and informative lectures and discussions related to holistic
wellness. Additional Signature classes like yoga, Pilates and circuit training may also be
offered. On shore, guests can take part in active excursions including guided hiking, biking
and running outings through the cities and villages showcased on each itinerary.
Similarly, Uniworld lets passengers hop on a bike, hike and start their day with yoga on
board. The line features an onboard wellness instructor offering TRX and yoga classes, plus its
Let's Go onshore program features guided walking, hiking, cycling, kayaking and golfing tours,
as well as gondola rowing and more. Uniworld also offers a Traveling Lite menu that features
options from the traditional menu, but with fewer calories. Avalon Waterways' Active
Discovery, meanwhile, features active options such as canoeing and biking as well as cultural
immersion activities. ■
