Combining the tour planning and hotel management expertise of TTC’s sister companies with Uniworld’s nautical experience has created a new lodestar in luxury river cruising. Each vessel boasts opulent exuberance in their interior design, with daring signature décor that is distinctive and themed on the region in which they cruise. Recent new-builds have been so trailblazing they have been given the designation S.S. – which stands for ‘super ship’.

With a fleet of 17 vessels sailing across Europe, Asia and Africa, Uniworld sails through some of the most spectacular cities and towns along the Rhine, Danube, Douro, Rhône, Seine, Gironde, Garonne and Dordogne rivers; as well as exploring the waterways of Russia, Egypt, India and Asia.

Uniworld’s vessels are to river cruise ships as foie gras is to paté. Each day is filled with personalised excursions (many of which are specially-designed just for Uniworld guests), such as ‘Wellness on the Water’ biking excursions on the Danube, Rhône and Rhine in partnership with Butterfield & Robinson. When it comes to dining, the cuisine is a culinary hybrid in which big flavours and textures triumph – not surprising as ‘farm-to-ship’ is central to the gustatory philosophy.

After a day filled with show-stopping scenery, guests can meet new friends in the lounges where the entertainment is far-removed from the river cruising norm before retiring to their scene-stealing staterooms for a blissful night’s sleep on the Savoir beds.

This is also a river cruise company that defies convention, and Uniworld’s latest venture, U by Uniworld, with cruises designed for those with a passion for exploring and a taste for authentic adventures

Sailing on the Rhine, Main, Danube and Seine, the ships sport a novel black-and-white palette, dining at communal tables and on-trend live entertainment like DJ sets.

Discerning travellers who seek an appreciation of the hidden gems of Europe’s fabled rivers will certainly appreciate the subtle way Uniworld has elevated the all-inclusive concept to an entirely new level.
