Sailing by river means enjoying all the conveniences of a traditional cruise, along with all the benefits of inland travel. Stopping in multiple destinations on every trip, you’ll visit bustling cities and hidden gem villages, only unpacking once. Even while onboard you’ll be immersed in the local sights, with ever changing views right outside your window. River cruising is absolutely the best way to cruise, and the best and most luxurious river cruise is with Uniworld.
Benefits of River Cruising
Smaller Ships, Fewer Guests
Uniworld ships have an average capacity of just 120 passengers, which means you get to enjoy an intimate onboard atmosphere and unmatched service, with a crew-to-passenger ratio of 1 to 2.3.
The Safest Way to Cruise
By nature, sailing on the rivers means constant proximity to land and shoreside resources—and, by extension, the ability to stop the ship and disembark at any time, if necessary.
Never restricted to coastal towns and ocean-liner ports, river cruise ships can take you to the heart of your destinations and dock in the center of town, so you can step right off the ship and start exploring.
A Room with a View
Forget about indoor cabins. When river cruising, every room has a view. Relax and enjoy the ever-changing scenery as you sail to your next destination.
No Lines or Crowds
Unlike on an ocean cruise, you won’t have to deal with wait times for embarking or disembarking. And on tours, our guides can bring you right past the long tourist lines at popular museums and attractions.
The Freshest Ingredients
Our five-star farm-to-table onboard dining is regionally inspired and prepared with only the freshest ingredients, sourced locally at every port.
The Most All-Inclusive
With Uniworld, you can expect luxurious in-room amenities, free-flowing premium wines, beer and spirits, five-star farm-to-table dining onboard, multiple options for daily excursions, onboard entertainment and much more—all the highest quality, all carefully crafted for the ultimate travel experience and all included in the price of your trip.
Floating Boutique Hotels
Our team’s passion for design lends Uniworld ships their signature attention to detail and Tiny Noticeable Touches. Each one-of-a-kind ship in our fleet is artfully designed to be an extension of the destinations they sail through. With custom fabrics, unique color palettes and original works by renowned artists, no two ships—or even suites for that matter—are alike.
Uniworld boasts one of the highest crew-to-guest ratios in the industry, 1 to 2.3, which means personalized attention from a crew trained to the highest standards in the hospitality industry. Service comes from the heart with our passionate team, which lives by the motto “no request is too large, no detail is too small.”
The Highest Health Standards
The health and well-being of our guests and team has always been, and always will be, our primary concern. You can rest assured that we have put numerous new measures in place to elevate our hygiene standards and protocols, including being the first river cruise line to have our European ships sprayed with ACT CleanCoat™—an antimicrobial coating that is odorless, nontoxic and most importantly, kills bacteria and viruses including COVID-19.
