S.S Antoinette

The luxurious décor of the 443-foot, 152-passenger S.S. Antoinette—Uniworld’s first Super Ship vessel—features fine Brazilian marble on the walls and floors, a 19th-century Venetian glass mirror, a stylish Bar du Leopard with full-service bar, and an onboard cinema. The two-story foyer boasts a 10-foot blue Strauss Baccarat chandelier with huge sapphires—a stunning piece that once hung in New York's famous Tavern on the Green—and a collection of original artwork is displayed throughout the ship.

River Queen

One of the most unique ships cruising Europe’s waterways, the River Queen has an exterior resembling the steamships of the 1930s and an elegant Art Deco interior.

S.S. Victoria

The S.S. Victoria, sister ship to the S.S. Elisabeth, joins our European fleet in 2024 with an ambiance of contemporary luxury and features the largest suites on the rivers of Europe.

Packing Tips for a River Cruise 

Packing for a river cruise will vary depending on the duration of the trip, the time of year, and the activities planned. Here is a general packing list to help you get started: 

  • A valid and current passport. 

  • A copy of your travel insurance and any necessary travel documents. 

  • Your Cruise Travel Companion, easily accessible should you need to reference it. 

  • Prepare for a variety of weather conditions, depending on your travel season and the regions through which you will be cruising. Layering clothing items is always your best bet, as this allows you to adjust to most temperatures, by removing or adding items throughout the day.  

  • Comfortable, sporty, smart-casual daywear is fine both onshore and onboard. Everyday slacks, khakis, walking shorts and everyday skirts/dresses are recommended. For warmer months, bring lightweight clothing that can be layered. For early spring and late fall departures, heavier cotton or wool tops and long-sleeved shirts, and pants are perfectly suitable. 

  • Comfortable walking shoes with good ankle support. You will participate in a significant amount of walking over uneven terrain during your time ashore.  

  • A lightweight waterproof jacket (preferably a hooded one) for all seasons, and a heavier weight jacket for colder temperatures and destinations.  

  • Evening wear: Resort-type wear is perfectly suitable. Men may want to bring a sport jacket for dressier venues and for special events onboard such as the Captain’s Welcome and Farewell festivities. Women may wish to bring a cocktail dress or two for finer dining or entertainment experiences.  

Laundry Services Onboard 

A launderette containing a self-service washing machine, dryer, and iron is available for your use while aboard the ship. The ship also provides washing, drying, and ironing services for a fee. There are no dry-cleaning facilities. 

Electrical Currency on European Ships 

Electrical current is 220V, the European standard. To accommodate guests’ needs, each stateroom or suite has one 110V outlet.  

Using a Hair Dryer Onboard 

Every stateroom or suite bathroom is stocked with a hair dryer, bath and body products, and a luxurious bathrobe for each guest. 

Air Conditioning  

Every stateroom and suite has an individual thermostat for air-conditioning and/or heat.  

Connecting to the Internet & Wi-Fi 

Complimentary Wi-Fi is available.  

From visiting a museum without the crowds to an after-hours tour of a famous landmark, these included, once-in-a-lifetime experiences are arranged privately for Uniworld guests. All shore excursions are carefully coordinated to the ship’s daily schedule. Each motorcoach or walking group has its own English-speaking local expert.  

Masterpiece Collection (Additional, Optional Experiences) 

Uniworld’s curated Masterpiece Collection of optional excursions go above and beyond the included experiences and are available for an additional charge. 

We highly recommend having travel insurance that covers medical expenses while abroad. 

Spa Treatments & Massages While Cruising* 

Spa treatments and massage services are available onboard the ship. 

Special Dietary Needs 

Please notify GET or Uniworld if you have special dietary concerns or considerations that need to be considered while traveling. Uniworld staff will do their best to ensure that your request is accommodated, but GET cannot guarantee that requests can be met in all cases.  

Mobility Concerns 

Passengers must advise GET at time of booking of any physical, medical, or other special needs that require accommodation.

Got an amazing deal, but was last sailing in fall before they take a break and then start the holiday markets sailings. Many shops in the towns along the Rhine, especially in the Alsace region, were already closed for break. Did a Rhine holiday market sailing before and it was so much more colorful, full of life and amazing decorations. So it was sad in comparison. BUT, the ship and crew are outstanding, though they need to cater to older or slower passengers a little better or warn before booking that you have to be moderately fit to do any tours.

Went quite smoothly; very nice staff and responsive! Some info was tricky to understand therefore called for more back and forth communications. Was surprised that there wasn't a more detailed itinerary of what to expect other that what was posted on the original website brochure. Was told to print out details that we never needed. Also told to create an account on GET and Uniworld tours...the Uniworld sign up never worked

Missed out on one day of exploring due to river lock maintenance...would have been nice to have had a proper compensation and proper advance notice, as we would have changed our travel arrangements. Would have like more onboard and evening activities, ex: trivia, games, ice breaker gatherings... Accommodations, lounge/dining rooms, staff, food/drink All excellent!

We ran into,some bad luck,three days,into the cruise.The water level was so low, that we were forced, to abandon ship, & continue, in buses & stay, in hotels.It was dissappointing,since we did not get, to cruise past the castles,along the river.The staff at Uniworld did a fantastic job,of arranging travel alternatives,with very little time, to do so.We especially enjoyed the guides,that were assigned to us.Muriel in Amsterdam,was exceptional,in every way.She is very knowledgable,& entertaining.
