What Makes Uniworld Boutique River Cruises Unique?

The only river cruise line who offers a boutique river cruise experience


We are deeply honored to be recognized by some of the world’s most prestigious travel entities, including Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure, for the best service, cuisine, stateroom design, and overall experience in the river cruise industry.

Our unique partnership with our sister company, Red Carnation Hotels—a collection of five-star boutique hotels—allows Uniworld Boutique River Cruises to offer a boutique hotel experience onboard our river cruise ships. That, combined with an average ship capacity of just 130 guests and the highest staff-to-guest-ratio in the river cruise industry, makes Uniworld the world’s ONLY authentic luxury boutique cruise line.

Uniworld handles all aspects of our nautical, hospitality, and hotel management, as well as our onshore programs, so nothing is ever left to chance. Our staff is trained with the philosophy, “No request too large, no detail too small,” so feel like a guest in the finest of homes—ours.

Each custom-designed Uniworld ship is lavishly appointed and features all the modern conveniences you appreciate. Our riverview staterooms provide a perfect retreat with handcrafted Savoir® of England beds and plush linens, as well as sumptuously stocked marble bathrooms.

Customize your travel experience with included “Choice is Yours,” “Go Active,” and “Gentle Walking” options.

Uniworld—the world’s ONLY river cruise line recognized by Zagat® for “Top Dining”—offers exceptional meals using the finest ingredients, often brought onboard daily from local farmers’ markets. 

Through integrated onboard and onshore programs, Uniworld provides a 360° encounter with each exciting port of call. Signature Lectures, performances, and exclusive excursions immerse you in the history and culture of each stop on your river cruise itinerary.
