River Cruise Line: Uniworld River Cruises

You can find detailed information for Uniworld River Cruises and the ships in their fleet below.

Uniworld River Cruises
The clue is in Uniworld’s full title: the Uniworld Boutique River Cruising Collection takes the distinctive, personalised elegance and refinement of a boutique hotel experience, and transports it to the waterways of the world. Uniworld is part of The Travel Corporation, an international travel group with a particular specialism in boutique living. It’s not surprising then, that you’ll find the design flair and attentive service of its hotels on-board each of its ships. When every river cruise operator boasts (justifiably) impressive levels of luxury, Uniworld ensures that from dining to décor, you’ll enjoy only the very best when you choose its ships for your river cruising adventure. Why Uniworld River Cruises? Ships: You’d have to go a long way to find river cruising that looks and feels as sumptuous and meticulously designed as Uniworld. Each ship carries the influences of its destinations, and each is an entirely different feast of art and carefully selected antiques. Beds are handcrafted by Savoir, delivering a comfort so complete you’ll be sorely tempted by a daily lie-in despite the temptations waiting outside. Marble bathrooms are thoughtfully stocked and exquisitely appointed. And every suite on each ship comes with its own impressive range of VIP services. Unrivalled Service: Uniworld’s river cruising experiences are built on a simple mantra: “No request too large, no detail too small”. As the world’s only floating boutique hotels, it’s a credo Uniworld staff uphold with verve. A higher staff to passenger ratio than any other river cruise operator means not only are your requests met, they’re met faster. And a commitment to selecting highly trained English-speaking staff on every ship means you’ll enjoy the same impressive standards wherever you cruise. Small wonder then, that Uniworld river cruises’ service has been voted the world’s best by readers of Travel & Leisure, and is the highest rated river cruise line on CruiseCritic.com. Dining: Locally sourced ingredients. Classically trained chefs. And unlimited drinks including regional wines and speciality beers: it’s an appetising mix before you even put fork to food. Like so much of what Uniworld River Cruises does, your meal options can be tailored, so if you’re an early riser, a light biter, an al fresco diner or healthy eater, you’ll always find delicious options, served how and when you want. Choice: It’s not simply a case of offering more itineraries on its European river cruises than any other operator (although Uniworld does); it’s the personalization that’s available at every destination. Customize your onshore adventures to match your mood and fitness levels, with programmes designed for a gentle stroll or a more active day. Multi Award-Winning: Condé Nast’s readers placed Uniworld River Cruises among the ‘World’s Best Cruise Lines’. Cruise International voted Uniworld the ‘Best Luxury River Cruise Line’, as did Cruise Critic and the LA Times.
European River Cruises with Uniworld
With Uniworld River Cruises the opulence and grandeur of the continent’s capitals is matched by life on-board. Yet despite the appeal of your ship, you’ll still want to experience the coffee houses of Vienna, the gardens and waterways of Amsterdam, the fairytale castles and medieval marketplaces of Germany and the pomp and majesty of Paris.

Russian River Cruises with Uniworld
The river that took Peter the Great from Moscow to St Petersburg is the very best way to understand the heart and soul of Russia. Onion domed churches, quaint villages and forested islands contrast with the stark and sometimes startling legacies of the Soviet Union. Take a river cruise on the Volga and discover the Russia the West never sees.

Yangtze River Cruises with Uniworld
A bustling explosion of entrepreneurialism, and an often other-worldly landscape of history, folklore and nature in all its glory. River cruising the Yangtze will give you a unique perspective on the ancient and modern China – all from the carefully tailored comforts of your Uniworld boutique cruise ship.

Mekong River Cruises in Vietnam and Cambodia
Two countries. Two cultures. One river. The Mekong feeds the economic explosion of Vietnam and the gentle agricultural tranquillity of Cambodia – and on this Uniworld river cruise you’ll enjoy the beauty, excitement and vibrancy of both.
