Learn more about river cruising

Uniworld’s growing collection of awards and accolades from guests, travel professionals, media, and industry experts make it abundantly clear—no one does luxury river cruising better.

EFFORTLESS TRAVEL—Uniworld’s ships are floating boutique hotels with professional staff on hand to attend to guests’ every need. It’s a virtually effortless way to travel—and guests only have to unpack once.

ULTRA-CONVENIENT—Unlike large ocean-going vessels, river cruise ships can often dock in the heart of great capitals and fairytale villages. There’s no waiting in long lines to get on or off the ship and no need to tender into ports.

SMOOTH SAILING—Sailing along Europe’s peaceful waterways is the journey of a lifetime. Calm waters mean guests never have to worry about motion sickness as they enjoy the world’s most scenic rivers.

EVER-CHANGING VIEWS—Guests can savor the unforgettable, ever-changing scenery from the privacy of their stateroom or suite, as well as from their ship’s luxurious lounges, restaurants, Sun Deck, and other public spaces.

INTIMATE AMBIANCE—The modest size of river cruise ships make it easy to move around, unencumbered by crowds. Each vessel was designed with public areas ideal for socializing, and quiet nooks to read, daydream, or gaze out at the view.
