Uniworld - Truly All-Inclusive
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.

  • Main Lounge It's right next to the bar and full of comfortable seating for relaxing after an exciting day.
  • The Gym Keep your workout routine intact, even while on the other side of the world.
  • Coffee Bar Perk up with a fresh-made specialty coffee or tea. You’ve got a lot of exploring to stay caffeinated for.
  • Two Bars For enjoying a signature U cocktail, craft beer or your favorite drink at whatever hour you choose.

Rooftop Loungin'

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,

Delicious Dining

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.

Dock in the city center

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.

U by Uniworld FAQ's

Some of the frequently asked questions U by Uniworld receive from their clients
So, just to be sure...you need to be 21 to 45 at the time of sailing to join these river cruises?

Yep.

Is there Wifi onboard?

A week without Wifi sounds terrifying, and U By Uniworld would never do that to you. Onboard, you’ll enjoy complimentary Wifi access all across the ship.

Will I get bored onboard?

That's very unlikely! Lots of people to meet, taking in the scenery with a tasty beverage, and of course there's a myriad of onboard activties to enjoy including cooking classes, yoga every morning, silent disco, mixology classes, and on days you're docked in a picture-perfect location, head to the top deck for a painting class and create your very own masterpiece. You bring your artistic side, U will bring the wine and supplies.

I'm pretty picky about what I eat, should I worry?

You’ll have classic options, comfort food choices and plenty of vegan, vegetarian and various healthy dining choices as well. And if you have any special dietary needs, U's chefs would be happy to accommodate.

What do we do when we stop at a port?

At every stop along your U journey, you’re always just one choice away from yet another exciting adventure. Each day on U, you’re given the option to explore in one of three ways — included excursions and activities, optional U Time outings or a self-guided tour of the city.

I'm a bit strapped cash, when do I have to pay for my cruise?

A deposit of at least 10% is required to secure your cabin, and the balance is due 125 days out from the sailing date. Global Journeys allows you to pay us in instalments if you want, but only up until the balance due date.

What about gratuities, are they included?

Yep.

How many bags can I take with me?

U by Uniworld allows one (1) suitcase, one (1) carry-on bag, and one (1) personal bag (handbag, computer case, etc.) per person onboard their ships and motorcoaches.

Can I smoke and/or partake onboard?

Smoking is only permitted on the sun decks of U ships, including e-cigarettes. Guess what - no recreational drugs & illegal substances, or you're off at your own expense.

Can I pack my Chihuahua?

Nope. No pets.

Could my itinerary change for any reason?

The very nature of a river, its sources, and networks of bridges and locks, means that there will be times when weather or other conditions in a region require U by Uniworld to make adjustments and/or modifications to an itinerary. Although every effort will be made to keep itineraries and vessels as they are shown, U by Uniworld reserves the right to substitute itineraries or vessels. In such cases, they will do everything they can to make sure the locations visited, the excursions taken, and the vessels offered are similar to the ones originally planned.
