River Countess wiki

In April 2013, Uniworld launched their Po river cruises in Italy and aimed to be the most luxurious company in operation on the Italian river. The line succeeded with the freshly remodelled riverboat River Countess, which, after 10 years of service, underwent a total transformation in 2012 at the cost of over USD 5 million. The Countess was re-designed by a team of Red Carnation Hotels (a sister company of Uniworld).

Due to the boat's unique itineraries in Italy, some shore excursions (for example, to Verona, Ravenna, Bologna, Padua) require bus travel of 1-2 hours. This means less cruising time than on an average sailing.

The River Countess ship cruises on Po River in Italy. Itineraries include 3-day round-trips from Venice (Venezia), and also one-ways leaving from Milan and Rome to Venice. This is the only Uniworld ship in this country. Another major European river cruise line's ship in Italy is the CroisiEurope's Michelangelo.
