Botique Ships

Our Design Philosophy

Uniworld puts a unique spin on river cruising, with floating boutique hotels that are meticulously designed with the signature touches for which our company is known. Each and every ship in our European fleet is rich in character and truly one-of-a-kind, with its own distinctive theme and color palette, original art and sumptuous furnishings and antiques.

Uniworld's iconic ships exemplify true artistry, the very essence of our boutique philosophy. In partnership with the design visionaries at our award-winning sister company - the Red Carnation Hotel Collection - our ships have a stylish flair inspired by the rivers upon which they cruise, a blend of old-world elegance, the latest technological innovations, and ultra-luxurious amenities.

We take great care to ensure that every element onboard - down to the smallest detail - has been thoughtfully considered and flawlessly rendered. Our mission: to provide our discerning guests with a truly unsurpassed and unforgettable river cruise experience.

Carefullly Curated Shore Excur

The only thing more stunning than stepping aboard our ships...is stepping off

The design of every Uniworld ship was inspired by the destinations you'll visit, which means your destinations will be pretty spectacular. Our included excursions are curated exclusively for Uniworld guests, and are your gateway to immersing yourself in the authentic culture, sights and cuisine of the places you'll visit.

The Choice is Yours

Choose an active excursion, a culturally enriching one or a "Gentle Walking" tour that lets you explore at a more leisurely pace. We feature more than 80 excursions that are completely unique to Uniworld guests. Nothing onboard is cookie-cutter, so your time onshore shouldn't be either. These included excursions, as well as our Exclusive Experiences, feature several options throughout the entire day, so you can adventure onwards exactly how you'd like.

  • Let's Go - Put on your walking shoes or your favorite bike shorts and head out on a hiking or biking excursion. Our Nordic walking poles and custom Uniworld bicycles are available for you to use onshore. With our compliments, of course.
  • Do as the Locals Do - Experience life just as a local would with these specialty excursions designed to give you an authentic inside look into your destination. With our VizEat partnership, you can get a taste of the city and share a meal in the home of a local host.
  • Village Day - Discover some of the prettiest and most charming towns and cities on these intimate adventures, offering an in-depth look into quaint destinations and the local people who bring them to life.
