Boutique River Cruise
  View Boutique River Cruises

From the enchanting Danube to the legendary Rhine; from France’s breathtaking Seine to Italy’s iconic Venetian Lagoon and Po River; and from Portugal and Spain’s majestic Douro to Russia’s mighty Volga, Europe’s rivers have shaped the continent’s history, culture, and economy for centuries.

River cruising is a stress-free way to experience the energy and excitement of Europe’s cosmopolitan cities, and the quaint charm of picturesque towns and villages nestled along the river banks. 

More intimate and inviting than big vessels, river cruise ships are smaller, with an average of just 130 guests. They can dock right at their destination, so the sites you want to visit immediately await you as you disembark.  

We exclusively feature Uniworld Boutique River Cruises in our collection. For over 40 years, award-winning Uniworld—the world's ONLY authentic boutique cruise line™— has offered itineraries in spectacular destinations throughout Europe, Russia, Egypt, and Asia. The company’s European fleet features luxurious ships with the highest staff-to-guest ratio in the river cruise industry, enticing shore excursions, world-class gourmet cuisine, and impeccable hospitality.

You’ll travel in luxurious comfort and security on an award-winning ship inspired by the beauty, colors, and intricate details of your destination. Each ship design has been inspired by the destinations you’ll visit, which means your destinations will be pretty spectacular.

Included excursions - curated exclusively for Uniworld guests - are your gateway to immersion in the authentic culture, sights, and cuisine of the places you’ll visit. River cruises tend to be a slower pace and Uniworld’s unique Choice is Yours program allows you to select the pace of your days onboard and off.

Choose an active excursion, a culturally enriching one, or a “Gentle Walking” tour that lets you explore at a more leisurely pace. With 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 Uniworld’s 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. Nordic walking poles and custom Uniworld bicycles are available for you to use onshore. With 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 Uniworld’s 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.
