Uniworld is launching the world’s first cruise line geared towards millennials. U by Uniworld will take a fresh approach to cruising for 21-45 year olds. These river cruises will be an effortless way to travel from city to city across Europe, completely tailored to your personal tastes.
Beginning in April 2018, U by Uniworld will sail two river cruise ships on the Seine, Rhine and Danube Rivers visiting popular European cities including Paris, Amsterdam, Budapest, Vienna, Franfurt, and Regensburg.
U by Uniworld will offer hassle free travel that acts as a boutique hotel that moves seamlessly throughout Europe with meals, transportation and activities all built in. Pack and unpack once while they take care of all the details in between. They’ve got it covered from bow to stern. You can relax onboard, spend your day and night in town on your own or embark on one of the many carefully curated excursions. It’s all up to you and how you want to spend your vacation.
WiFi – Onboard, you’ll enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi access all across the ship. You’ll also have access to news and info through a free PressReader app so you can keep up with the world.
Silent Disco – If you’ve never been, now is the time. The resident DJ runs the party and everyone wears headphones in sync with the music. Just take them off to chat with your friends. It’s sophistication meets party jams.
Yoga – Find your center with a complimentary morning top-deck yoga session, led by the ship’s wellness coach. The views are sure to help with the meditation.
Chef’s Cooking Classes – Join the Chef as he takes you through a multi-course cooking class. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labor including appetizers, entrees and desserts.
Paint and Wine – On days you’re docked in a picture-perfect location, head to the top deck for a painting class and create your very own masterpiece. You bring your artistic side, they will bring the wine and supplies.
To travel is to eat, and you will eat well on your cruise with U. Culture is often experienced through taste, and with that in mind, many of your onboard meals will be inspired by the local fare of the cities you’ll visit, made from ingredients that were sourced just miles down the road. Hungry for something a little closer to home? You’ll have classic options, comfort food choices and plenty of vegan, vegetarian and various healthy dining choices as well. If you have any special dietary needs, our chef’s would be happy to accommodate.
When onboard, you’ll have two meals a day included, based on the daily schedule. You can anticipate a creative modern dining experience, with many organic, vegetarian and healthy culinary options. But if you’re craving a slightly less healthy juicy burger with bacon jam, goat cheese and a fresh side of fries, they’ll have you covered.
The master chefs aim to bring a taste of your destinations onboard, using locally sourced ingredients. Local street food, like German Käsekreiner, will be served whenever possible.
U by Uniworld’s itineraries are chock full of U Time—specially planned additional excursions, events and activities created by destination experts with you in mind. Most days, you’ll have several U Time optionals to choose from, in between your included excursions. Some are relaxed and low key while others are for the high-energy crowd. But all are designed for you to experience the places you visit in authentic local fashion. With the added benefits of the best prices, transportation to and from the ship and the backing of our staff to ensure your cruise is exactly the way you’d like it to be, you can’t go wrong.
Look through each of their four itineraries to discover all of the adventures and tours that come complimentary, ranging from an evening bike ride along the Danube (or a daytime bike ride in Frankfurt with our U bikes that are available for your use), a “Midnight in Paris” evening stroll, a canal cruise in Amsterdam, vineyard hikes, castle visits, and much more.
Complimentary transfers will take you into town whenever you like. Plan out your day down to the T or head out with no set schedule in mind and see where life takes you.
U by Uniworld has panned several of their cruises around major cultural events, world festivals and other exciting happenings including:
- Paris Jazz Festival
- The Sziget Festival
- Kings’s Day
U itineraries are planned around your schedule, with late-night and overnight stays in port and later excursion start times.
The first two cruises from U by Uniworld will take place on April 14, 2018 with one sailing a round trip river cruise to and from Paris and the other sailing from Amsterdam to Frankfurt.
