(Besides being the only way to combine first-class luxury and unparalleled hospitality with stunning views and incredible excursions along the world’s legendary rivers.)

Travel from Port to Port

What’s better than staying in a five-star hotel? Staying in a five-star hotel that can take you to each city along your journey. Forget taking long train rides or flying between destinations. Instead, ride in luxury and enjoy the countryside as the ship carries you to each new and fascinating port city.

Spectacular Ships

Think of the cruise ship as your floating palace. While the destinations are sweet, Uniworld’s luxurious ships make the journey even sweeter. And no two ships in the fleet are the same—every element of a vessel’s design and décor is crafted to reflect your unique surroundings, whether that’s the Chateau de Versailles or the landscapes of India.

Location, Location, Location

Uniworld offers boutique cruises all over the world, so you can visit the places you’ve always dreamed of seeing. Whether you want to explore castles along the Rhine, revel in the gems of Northern Italy, savor the splendors of Egypt and the Nile or the grandeur of China and the Yangtze, there’s a river cruise itinerary with your name on it.

Personalized Excursions

At each port, you’ll have a choice of excursions designed to immerse you in the lifestyle of the city. Excursion options can include hikes, bike tours, wine tastings, castle visits, “Do as the Locals Do” walking tours, pasta-making workshops, art museums, and more.

Live Like Royalty

Luxury is the guiding principle of a boutique river cruise. Ships are decorated with handcrafted furniture, Italian marble, and original artwork by the likes of Picasso, Miró, and Chagall. Spend time socializing in the lounges, reading in the library, or relaxing blissfully in your stateroom or suite. Each room boasts the finest amenities, including Savoir of England beds, Egyptian cotton sheets, and L’Occitane and Hermès bath products.

World-Class Hospitality

You’ll enjoy five-star service on every Uniworld river cruise. With an average capacity of 130 guests, Uniworld’s ships offer the highest staff-to-guest ratio in the river cruise industry. Butlers trained to Buckingham Palace standards are available to guests staying in suites, and onboard sommeliers ensure that every drink and every meal is up to the highest caliber.

Culinary Treasures

Uniworld takes dining seriously. Master chefs source the freshest farm-to-table ingredients from local markets and artisanal producers at each destination. You’ll enjoy seasonal dishes, local wines and beers, and multi-course dinners that will complement and enrich your appreciation of regional culture and cuisine.

Wellness on the Water

Whether you prefer yoga or weightlifting, jogging or suspension training, each Uniworld cruise ship offers first-class fitness facilities to promote daily wellness. After your workout, unwind in the spa. Treat yourself to a facial or massage and reinvigorate your body in the heated pool.

Everything is Included

Each cruise is All-Inclusive, so everything you need is at your fingertips. The world-class dining and unlimited beverages. The onboard exercise classes. The entertainment and Signature Lectures. Uniworld also handles the logistics, including scheduled airport transfers, bicycles for onshore use, and specially curated excursions, led by English-speaking experts.

Family Friendly

River cruises are also perfect for parents and grandparents that want to share the world with young travelers. Uniworld’s Generations program offers cruise itineraries specifically designed for families during school breaks. Kid-friendly activities, workshops, and excursions will teach junior travelers about local culture and languages.
