Uniworld Boutique River Cruises has announced a new itinerary for 2022 and a new pre-cruise extension in celebration of the Oberammergau Passion Play.
The cruise company has released details of a new 2022 itinerary, Dutch Delight, which will take guests on an eight-day sailing through the Netherlands. On the new itinerary, guests will discover the full spectrum of Dutch life, from bustling cities to quaint rural towns, exploring authentic wooden houses, windmills, and craft shops along the way. There will also be opportunities to visit iconic Dutch cities like Amsterdam, the lovely port town of Harlingen, known for its amazing beaches; Nijmegen, the oldest city in the Netherlands, and more.
The itinerary will also include access to the seventh International Horticultural Expo Floriade Expo 2022 on select dates, a decennial living laboratory with inspirational exhibitions by countries, cities, and innovative businesses sharing ideas for a greener, healthier way of life.
In addition to the new itinerary, Uniworld has announced a pre-cruise extension. Due to the Coronavirus, the much-anticipated 2020 Oberammergau Passion Play performance 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 with Oberammergau’s 42nd production, running from May 25–September 14, 2022.
The Oberammergau Passion Play has been performed every ten years since 1634 by the inhabitants of the village of Oberammergau, in Bavaria. It was written by Othmar Weis, J A Daisenberger, Otto Huber, Christian Stuckl, Rochus Dedler, Eugen Papst, Marcus Zwink, Ingrid H Shafer, and the inhabitants of Oberammergau, with music by Dedler. Since its first production, it has been performed on open-air stages in the village, with its text a composite of four distinct manuscripts dating from the 15th and 16th centuries.
Guests who book the four-day pre-cruise extension will experience a morning of leisure in Oberammergau, followed by the passion play itself. The extension package also includes 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 at the performance, two dinners, transportation to and from the show, and more.
