Why choose Uniworld Boutique River Cruises

Sailing with Uniworld also offers you the chance to go deeper and explore more rivers than most cruise lines offer, such as the mighty Amazon in Peru and the sacred Ganges in India.

What makes the cruise line so special is you get to sail these bucket-list destinations from the comfort of a floating boutique hotel, which has some of the best facilities and amenities in the industry. Each ship is designed to emulate the feel of its destination and every touch is thought of – such as indoor heated pools on the Danube and sundeck pools on the Mekong.

This level of destination immersion continues to shore excursions, which are complimentary and include lots of after-hours tours of popular attractions to avoid crowds and visits to landmarks, wineries and castles not open to the public.

A most amazing cruise which was very busy but would not have missed a day as so much to see and so much included, just amazing hard to fault in any way.
Catherine wrote a review in May, 2022
A very enjoyable cruise. We felt very looked after.

Sailing with Uniworld is all about extravagance, from the lavish and ornate interiors of its ships to the fantastic on board facilities, such as salons, heated swimming pools and state-of-the-art fitness and wellness centres.

Staying on a Uniworld ships is like staying in a five-star boutique hotel, and even returning customers will be delighted by each ship’s unique character and design.

Uniworld’s cruising style is to make customers want for nothing, from heated pools and spas through to free-flowing alcohol and fine dining offerings. The line also champions the feeling of exclusivity, particularly with its excursions and shore offering.

One highlight includes a cocktail reception at the private home of Princess Anita von Hohenberg. The cruise line is formal, yet relaxed, and passengers often dress for dinner and drinks.
