Following its launch earlier this year, U by Uniworld has released brand new itineraries and excursions to enjoy during 2019.
The sister-brand to Uniworld, U by Uniworld is the first river cruise line which is dedicated to a new generation of adult travellers.
Ellen Bettridge, President and CEO of Uniworld said:
“We’ve introduced river cruising to a completely new segment of travelers this year with the launch of U by Uniworld. Our first year was all about disrupting the industry—quite literally ‘testing the waters’ as we debuted a never before seen product, receiving awards and rave reviews from guests, travel partners and media alike.”
Of the new itineraries featured, there is brand new sailing in Northern France aboard the B, alongside new excursions and amenities across the fleet throughout 2019.
From April 2019, the B’s new itinerary will sail along the Seine River calling at Paris, Vernon, Le Andelys, Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, Rouen and Caudebec-en-Caux, including two evenings to spend in Paris.
The sailing is also just in time for the 75th anniversary of D-Day, where passengers can stop at Normandy’s beaches to celebrate the historic event and visit the American Cemetary for a memorial ceremony.
Other excursions include:
- Following the ship’s chef to Rouen’s local markets and shopping for fresh ingredients for dinner
- Climbing to the top of the étretat’s legendary cliffs for breathtaking views
- Enjoying tea time at Château du Champ de Bataille
The A, recently named One of the World’s Greatest Places by TIME magazine, will also offer two new U Time excursion options in 2019.
Guests can paddleboard, canoe or swim in the Ilz River near the Danube bridge; hike through Regensburg; visit World War II sites in Linz; and take a walking tour through Budapest for the perfect chance to take Hungarian street food.
On-board U by Uniworld ships guests can also experience new additions such as rooftop BBQs and karaoke nights. For additional charges, the cruise line also offers guests the opportunity to camp on the rooftop including a nightcap cocktail and breakfast picnic basket.
