Travel all over. Unpack once.
Cruising with U is the easy and convenient way to get from city to city. Or even country to country. There’s a whole lot of travel in store. Think of them as a boutique hotel that moves seamlessly throughout Europe, with meals, transportation and activities all built in. Pack and unpack once while they take care of all the details in between.
Chic comfortable ships
When your waterfront hotel is also your taxi, bar, favorite restaurant, nightclub and yoga studio, travel becomes a bit more relaxed and a lot more hassle-free. Onboard, you can expect everything you’d find in your favorite boutique hotel. But here’s the best part. Your floating boutique hotel makes it extra-easy to visit several European destinations in a single trip while only having to unpack once.
U's Two Ships (The A and The B)
The B cruises down France’s Seine River. Her chic style and Parisian inﬂuence will put you in the French spirit even before stepping off, while The A makes her home on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, ﬂowing through The Netherlands and Central Europe.

Grab a drink and meet on the top deck, where the glass enclosed room disappears into the ﬂoor to create an open-air hangout. It’s the best view in the house and the spot to meet new friends or listen to a local guest DJ. With a casual dining venue and lounge seating,
U's ships feature two venues for dining, a full-service restaurant and casual rooftop eatery, each serving farm-to-table cuisine, often inspired by the culinary style of the places you’ll visit. Or if you’re in the mood for breakfast (or dinner) in bed, you can also order room service.
Every Room has a View
Both ships feature three different room styles ranging from "I just need a comfortable place to sleep and stash my stuff" to "I'm going all out in a suite," each with waterfront views. Flying solo? U by Uniworld have single rooms available and feature special room share rates for those traveling on their own who want to share the experience with a like-minded traveller.
Do it your way
You’ll have several daily options of activities, excursions and events to choose from, all tailored to your travel personality. Or do your own thing. It’s all your call. Relax onboard, spend your day and night in town on your own or embark on one of the many carefully curated excursions. It’s all up to you and how you want to spend your vacation. U itineraries are planned around your schedule, with late-night and overnight stays in port and later excursion start times.
Dock in the city centre
The perfectly sized ships can often dock in the center of cities both large and small, putting you right in the middle of the action from the moment you step ashore. Less time getting to and from means you have more time for exploring. itineraries take you to some of the most dynamic, inspiring and just plain fun cities in Europe. Some you’ll be familiar with. Others, you’ll be introduced to for the first time. But each has its own unique ﬂair and way of life that’s waiting to be discovered.
