Reasons to Choose a UniWorld River Cruise

Like all river cruises, on a UniWorld river cruise you unpack once and sail effortlessly past magnificent scenery, but what makes UniWorld different from other river cruise operators?

Lets start with their service!

UniWorld pride themselves for having ‘the best service in the industry’. Not only do they have the the highest staff-to-guest ratio compared with any other operator but UniWorld have won awards for ‘Best Service’ including being voted number 1 ‘World’s best service (river cruise)’ by readers of Travel + Leisure!

What makes UniWorld’s service the best? Well, they do not outsource their staff (meaning every single member of staff is overseen by UniWorld, including all onshore activities & every single member of staff onboard is professionally trained & English-speaking. There is nothing they won’t do for you – “no request too large, no detail too small”!
