Uniworld River Cruises: Luxury on the waterways

If you want to combine river cruising in Europe with absolute luxury, a Uniworld cruise is a great choice. The line is all-inclusive and its ships are beautiful boutique vessels on a par with the fleets of any oceangoing luxury line.

River cruising, unlike some other types of cruises, is less about flashy onboard entertainment and more about low-key evenings and days spent exploring the amazing cities and towns along the way. Uniworld’s unique and stylish ships are the perfect venue for this kind of cruise, and the crew will tend to the every need of each passenger during the journey to make it a comfortable one.

The Uniworld river cruise fleet

Uniworld operates a fleet of 19 ships, several of these used as charters. The overall style of the fleet is very distinctive, with bold colour, antiques and artwork - and each ship is completely unique. The following two popular ships are great examples of the Uniworld cruises offering.

  • River Royale: This 130-passenger ship was remodeled in 2014, and is looking fresh! Decorated to invoke the beautiful Bordeaux region of France, she is a vision in wood, marble, leather and other plush furnishings. The menu of pillow options is the final luxurious touch.
  • River Ambassador: Carrying 116 passengers, this elegant vessel is light and stylish, with pretty cool tones and lots of artwork throughout the private and public spaces. She’s a real ambassador for the line and the region!

Uniworld entertainment and activities

The focus is on the destination with Uniworld, as is the case aboard many luxury lines. However, the ship is a great place for relaxation and low-key entertainment in the evenings. Laid-back lounges serve as multi-purpose venues, hosting briefings for shore tours, cocktail hours, demonstrations and more. Live music and visiting entertainers provide some acts to spice up the after-dinner hours. There are also Signature Lectures presented by experts in various fields, fitness centres on most ships and spas for the ultimate in relaxation.

Most shore excursions are part of the Uniworld cruise package, these led by local experts and catering to a range of tastes and abilities. River cruises mean plenty of new places to see each day!

Dining and drinking

Culinary excellence is a hallmark of the Uniworld experience. Smaller ships mean fewer dining venues but plenty of variety on the menu - from breakfast and lunch buffets with something new each day, delicious formal dinners and al fresco dining under the stars on the Sun Deck to an all-day bistro menu for snacks and afternoon teas in the lounge. Everything is fresh and delicious!

Beverages are included in your cruise fare - fine wines with meals, and the bar serving cocktails, spirits, beer wine and anything you could wish for. There is also a 24-hour specialty coffee station serving pick-me-ups!
