U by Uniworld Takes Over the River Cruise Space

U by Uniworld Joins the Uniworld Family

Uniworld Boutique River Cruises Gives Birth to an Entirely New River Cruising Concept

The new river cruise caters to millennials, ages 21-45, and is a floating boutique hotel. U by Uniworld sails two ships: The A, which makes its way down the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, and The B, which makes her home on France’s Seine river. Both will be ready to set sail by early spring of 2018.

Although the two ships will be unique in design paralleling their geographic homes, they both contain the same amenities that keeps them true to the Uniworld brand. On both ships you will find a rooftop lounge, complete with hydraulics. This glass enclosed room disappears into the floor to create an open-air hangout.  You will find two venues for dining, one full-service restaurant and one casual rooftop eatery, both farm-to-table cuisine, often inspired by the culinary style of the places you’ll visit. You will find that every room has a view – both ships have three different room styles, ranging from triple “pod” rooms all the way up to a suite.

U by Uniworld is designed to create a ’boutique hotel’ vibe for their guests. This includes complimentary guest laundry, a 24/7 coffee shop, an Ice Bar which includes silent discos and international DJ’s, a gym, and a spa. Indulge yourself in a yoga class on the rooftop deck, or learn how to mix craft cocktails with a mixology lesson taught by U’s talented  mixologists. Feeling antsy? Grab one of U’s all matte-black bikes and hit the town!

With U by Uniworld, your sailing includes two meals per day, shore excursions, non-alcoholic beverages. (Drink packages may become available in the near future.) They have partnered up with popular millennial brand, Contiki, to match up their tours with a U cruise so you can extend your vacation pre or post sailing.
