Ship Information

The B

A ship so good, she's cruising two rivers. Find her strutting her stuff on the Rhine and Main.

Part boutique hotel, part yacht, part local hotspot

When your waterfront hotel is also your taxi, bar, favorite restaurant, nightclub, gym and yoga studio, travel becomes a bit more relaxed and a lot more hassle-free.

Onboard, you can expect everything you would find in your favorite boutique hotel. But here’s the best part. Your floating boutique hotel makes it extra easy to visit several European destinations on a single trip while only having to unpack once.

Rooftop Lounge

Grab a drink and meet us on the top deck for the best views in the house. The Rooftop Lounge is an open-air hangout with plenty of places to sit and chat with new friends. In the mornings, grab a mat and join a rooftop yoga class.

Ice Bar

This might be one of the coolest bars you've ever been to. The walls are on hydraulics so we can lower the whole room to fit under low bridges as we sail. Head up to the Ice Bar for some fun. Think signature U cocktails, craft beers, silent discos and international DJs.

Dine Restaurant

Your cruise includes three meals a day at our onboard restaurant Dine. Kick back at one of our communal dining tables with new friends and enjoy farm-to-table cuisine inspired by the destinations you'll visit.

U Lounge

Consider the U Lounge the main hub of the ship. Meet up with the group before you head out for the day, or stop by for a drink from our well-stocked bar before or after dinner. You'll also be able to join mixology and paint & wine classes here throughout your cruise.

Bedrooms

All of our bedrooms include waterfront views, super comfy Savoir mattresses, built-in Bluetooth speakers, flatscreen TVs, plenty of outlets with a variety of plugs (including USB ports), ample storage space and a safe. Our Suites include a french balcony, a desk, a table and chairs. Our Balcony bedrooms include a french balcony. Our Studio Triple bedrooms include adjustable mood lighting, one lofted bed and one bunk bed.

Each bedroom has it's own private luxe marble bathroom that's stocked with Bee Kind bath products. Our suite bathrooms are even more spacious, complete with double vanities, heated mirrors, towel warmers, comfy robes and slippers.

Gym

Keep your workout routine intact while on vacation. The Gym has treadmills, TRX bands, yoga mats, free weights and other equipment to keep you in shape. Looking to take your workout onshore? Grab a bike from the top deck or ask our Wellness Coach to set up a hike for you. So go ahead, have that second scoop of homemade ice cream.
