Uniworld River Cruises EXCLUSIVE! Click here to find out all about our brand new Managing Director's 10th Anniversary river cruise with exclusive guest speakers, tours and much more. 

With its dedication to offering boutique river cruise experiences, Uniworld has long been an industry pioneer and has continued to offer guests a distinctly different all-inclusive river cruise holiday since its launch in 1976. A continuously high standard across every aspect of each vessel is all part of the service, with world-class cuisine, lavish accommodations, award-winning hospitality and expertly planned itineraries throughout Europe, Russia, Egypt and the Far East.

  • All-inclusive luxury cruise experience
  • Unique, award-winning ships
  • Boutique hotel-standard staterooms
  • Extraordinary personalised service
  • Expertly-prepared cuisine, tailored to each guest
  • Shore excursions to suit every taste


Whichever of Uniworld’s award-winning vessels you choose, you are assured of luxurious accommodations, which are stylishly designed and luxuriously appointed to replicate a boutique hotel experience thanks to the line’s partnership with the revered Red Carnation Hotel. Each ship is different and has its own character, design and theme; something which is continued within each of its elegantly appointed staterooms. Handcrafted Savoir beds, 100 percent Egyptian cotton linens, plush towels and L’Occitane bath products are just some of the luxurious amenities you can look forward to and whichever ship you travel on and whatever stateroom you select, you can take in the continuously changing views from your French balcony window.


A boutique hotel experience ensures an unforgettable dining experience, something which you can look forward to whichever Uniworld vessel you choose. Each meal is prepared by only the finest chefs, created with locally-sourced ingredients and inspired by the different regions you’ll visit on your cruise. Dinner is served in your ship’s elegant open-seating dining room, so you are free to sit wherever you wish and with whomever you wish each night. Breakfast and lunch are served conveniently in buffet style, leaving you more time to explore ashore. 

The Uniworld fleet

Currently operating a beautifully-appointed fleet of 19 vessels across Europe, Russia, Egypt, Vietnam and Cambodia and India, Uniworld offers an all-inclusive boutique experience, wherever in the world you want to travel. The majority of the line’s vessels explore the celebrated rivers of Europe, so whether you cruise the Danube on beautiful River Beatrice, the stunning Seine on River Baroness or the legendary Rhine on River Ambassador, you can look forward to only the very best levels of service and the most rewarding itineraries. Uniworld also operates a number of Super Ships on Europe’s rivers, catering to typically around 150 guests and offering the very highest levels of hospitality, state-of-the-art design and the very best in craftsmanship and attention to detail. 

What’s included

With Uniworld, you are guaranteed an all-inclusive river cruise experience, with everything included. The staff-to-guest ratio is higher than that of any other cruise line and the line’s ships cater to an average of just 130 guests. All your gratuities on-board and ashore are included in the price you pay, as are all your scheduled airport transfers and a number of exclusive excursions. All your meals on-board are of course included with no cover charges and whether you look forward to a bottle of wine with dinner or a cocktail or two in the lounge, all beverages are unlimited on-board for the duration of your cruise. You’ll also have the use of a fully-equipped fitness centre and be able to take advantage of complimentary exercise and wellness classes too. If you like to keep in touch with friends or family back home or simply want to find out more about the day’s port of call, ship-wide Wi-Fi and internet access is also included. As an extra-special touch, as of 2016, butler service is also included on all Uniworld European sailings. 

Shore excursions

As well as ensuring an unforgettable on-board service, Uniworld is dedicated to ensuring a similarly high standard of service once you are ashore in each port of call that you visit. A number of the excursions that the line offers are exclusive, while all of them are personalised expertly-chosen and expertly-led by knowledgeable English-speaking local guides. Even if you’d prefer to explore on your own, Uniworld helps to ensure the best excursion possible, with bicycles and Nordic walking sticks included for onshore use. From the beautiful gardens and historic windmills of the Dutch Waterways to the opulent palaces and atmospheric castles of Austria and Germany and the age-old temples across the Far East, Uniworld excursions are expertly designed to ensure that you get the very best out of every destination that you visit.
