Uniworld River Cruises Ships

With a fleet of luxurious ships operating a host of fantastic itineraries across Europe , Russia, Egypt, Vietnam, Cambodia and India, Uniworld guarantees an unforgettable boutique experience to everyone who chooses to cruise with the line.

The pride of the Uniworld fleet is its selection of Super Ships including SS Catherine, SS Antoinette and the lavish SS Maria Theresa, which joined the Uniworld fleet in 2015. These ships cater to more passengers – typically around 150 – and feature opulent touches like public areas featuring Brazilian marble, Venetian glass and elegant sapphire chandeliers. However, you don’t have to cruise on one of these Super Ships to experience what makes a Uniworld ship so special, the current fleet includes the below:

Europe

Europe is a continent which boasts some of the world’s most rewarding, historic and beautiful rivers and to reflect this, the majority of Uniworld ships cruise its waterways. From River Queen on the Rhine, Danube or Moselle rivers, to River Countess on Italy’s Po and River Royale on France’s Garonne and Dordogne, there is an excellent choice when it comes to both ships and itineraries. There are eleven ships currently sailing along Europe's rivers for Uniworld, with a 12th joining in 2019 (S.S. Bon Voyage) and a further two in 2020 (S.S La Venezia & S.S. Sao Gabriel).

There is also the River Victoria, which sails along the Volga from Moscow to St. Petersburg, offering complete style and luxury for up to 196 passengers.

Africa

Uniworld also sails along the legendary Nile with the River Tosca - an 82-passenger ship which offers a comfortable way to explore the ancient Egyptian history. There is also an additional ship joining the fleet in 2020 - S.S. Sphinx. She will debut on the Nile in January 2020 and offer three gourmet dining venues, 42-luxuriously appointed suites and much more!

Asia

There is one ship which Uniworld currently has sailing along the Mekong - Mekong Navigator. However, she will be joined by the Mekong Jewel in 2020, when she will be the newest and most luxurious ship on the Mekong river. Meanwhile, Mekong Navigator is designed with colonial flair that nods to the manor homes which once lined the streets of Old Saigon.

Along the Ganges River, the Ganges Voyager II offers 56 guests the chance to explore the exotics of India aboard this serene and beautifully-furnished river cruise ship. And in China the specially chartered Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer boasts the largest cabins and suites along the Yangtze - ideal for river cruisers to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Each vessel in the fleet is stylishly appointed and beautifully decorated throughout all its public areas and in each and every stateroom, thanks to the line’s partnership with the respected Red Carnation Hotel chain.
