Uniworld River Cruises

Explore the world's rivers in style

Luxury river cruises


As a century-old, family-owned business, Uniworld is renowned for outstanding personal service. Indeed, their 1–2.3 staff-to-guest ratio is among the best on the world's rivers, while the likes of in-suite butlers and a no-detail-is-too-small approach will guarantee a holiday to remember.

All-inclusive river cruises

Uniworld offers a truly all-inclusive river cruise experience, ensuring your holiday is 100 percent stress-free. Indeed, all you'll need to do is sit back, relax and be treated to everything from unlimited premium drinks and five-star dining to onboard gratuities, scheduled airport transfers and a range of carefully curated excursions. You'll also enjoy complimentary use of bicycles and Nordic walking sticks as well as ship-wide internet and WiFi access and a full programme of onboard entertainment and enrichment.

No-fly river cruise collection

If you're looking for a holiday which avoids the airport altogether, Uniworld is the perfect choice. Indeed, they offer no fewer than eight European cruise itineraries as part of their 'no-fly' range, taking in many of Europe's most iconic rivers. There are two no-fly options you can take advantage of:

  • Eurostar to Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam and then (where required) onwards travel by train (Uniworld offers travel in Standard Class with upgrades to Standard Premier and Business Premier on request)
  • Arrange your own ferry and drive yourselves to a pre-booked secure car park near to the ship - and save up to £500 per couple on the normal cruise price

For more information, download the brochure below, then call our river cruise specialists today to start planning.

Included excursions

While Uniworld are leaders on onboard excellence, they also set the standard when it comes to time spend off the ship. A programme of excursions, curated to perfection, will showcase the very best of each country and port of call. Daily choices range from in-depth explorations of a region's towns and villages to do-as-the-locals-do options, which might include riding a city subway to visiting a tucked-away cafe for a locals-favourite treat. Then there are the private experiences, once-in-a-lifetime adventures arranged especially for Uniworld guests.

Culinary excellence, as standard

As you sail between ports, you'll experience the very best in onboard dining – world-class, farm-to-fork cuisine made using the freshest ingredients and sourced locally, where possible, from the destinations on your route. Of course, it's all paired with the finest local wines. It's this attention to detail that makes any Uniworld river cruise an extraordinary culinary adventure.

Farm-to-fork dining

Attention to wellness

Whether it's sunrise yoga up on deck, a massage or treatment in the Serenity Spa or a simple dip in the heated pool, Uniworld are dedicated to helping you stay fit, healthy and happy during your time on board. And, if your just setting out on your own wellness journey, their experts boast an average of 10 years with the company, meaning you'll have all the expertise you'll need at your disposal. Furthermore, guests can choose healthier dining options from the Travel Lite menu or join some of the 'Let's Go' excursions, featuring the likes of hiking, cycling, kayaking and golf.

One-of-a-kind ships

Akin to the stylish boutique, destination-inspired hotels of sister company – Red Carnation Hotels – each of Uniworld's river ships is a glorious ode to the very rivers on which they sail. As such, no two ships are alike and you can expect distinctive colour palettes, custom-made fabrics and curated artworks in each. It's a theme which continues throughout, even to the individually designed suites, which come with marbled bathrooms, handcrafted Savoir® beds, fully stocked bars and butler service as standard.

River Countess

Environmental responsibility

As well as offering one of the best experiences in river cruising, Uniworld are also committed to protecting the planet which forms the spectacular backdrop to their journeys. Over a decade ago, they introduced a clean water program to preserve the world's rivers and waterways, which many others have since joined. They're also in line to remove all single-use plastics from their ships by 2022 while all guests are invited to offset their carbon footprint through a range of carbon offset schemes.
