With newer ships, fascinating itineraries and exotic destinations, River Cruising is fast becoming a popular choice in vacations for people of all ages. Whether you are a retired couple looking for a relaxing tour filled with fine wine and luxury accommodations, a young student looking to experience the nightlife of Paris, or a family who wants to explore the history and scenery abroad, there is a river cruise designed just for you.
Young or Young at Heart?
Fun, immersive and freshly designed itineraries are waiting for you with U by Uniworld. Skip the hassles of trying to find your way across Europe. Instead, unpack just once and explore different cities, customized excursions and a whole lot of fun. Average age range 21-45.
My Favourite Features:
Food for Foodies and everything in between: Gourmet meals and authentic cuisine served on-board with 2 meals a day included with your cruise. Craving a greasy burger and fries instead? They have you covered. There is even an option to enjoy a meal in the home of a U-Host with the partnership they have with EatWith.com
Ditch the Alarm: With overnight stays in many ports, party to your hearts content listening to amazing DJ’s or sipping a beer at a local pub. Plus the excursions start later in the day, allowing you some extra rest if you stay out on the town.
Smaller Ships Mean Better Access: The ships are designed to fit into the ports located at the heart of the cities you’ll visit – putting you right in the middle of all the action and excitement. Giving you more time to explore the destinations.
Unique and Hidden Gems: While the cruises are designed to hit some of the more famous cities like Paris, Amsterdam and Vienna, you will also get to experience some hidden gems along the way.
