Well-being Declaration & Health Screening

More than ever before, it’s essential that we take personal responsibility to help protect each other, and the people and places we visit. To help achieve this goal, all guests and crew will be asked to complete a Well-Being Travel Declaration upon arrival. Additionally, all guests and crew will be required to have their temperatures taken prior to embarkation, and routinely throughout the cruise, using touchless technology.

Onboard Protocols

We've added new measures to elevate our hygiene standards for every facet of the onboard experience—from the introduction of innovative, non-toxic cleaning solutions to hand sanitizer stations throughout the ship. View our extensive list of health & hygiene protocols here.

Uniworld is proud to become the first river cruise company to have our European ships sprayed with Premium Purity™—the antimicrobial coating that is odorless, nontoxic and most importantly, kills bacteria and viruses including COVID-19.

A Well-Trained Team

Our Hotel Managers, Cruise Managers and crew have all been trained by an external consultant in professional health, enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of our guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained.

We Follow The Experts

As members of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) and Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), we have been actively involved in helping to define global protocols and are kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis. Our protocols will be adapted and adjusted as needed, in a timely manner, as local governments and the World Health Organization (WHO) define and implement what is required in each country.

Trusted Partners Onshore

We are very selective in who we work with and choose to only use local guides, buses, drivers, restaurants and venues that take the health and well-being of our guests as seriously as we do. Our well-established and rigorous cleaning regimes for our buses and vox boxes have been enhanced and we will continue to only work with establishments that we are confident will consistently adhere to our standards.

We're In This Together

We are all in this together so we kindly ask that you do your part by being well informed before you travel about our new protocols, and that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of our crew while on your cruise. You can read our full list of onboard protocols here.


We have introduced enhanced hygiene protocols—for you, our other guests and our team members.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the U.S. State Department and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

We ask that you please take personal responsibility for your well-being. This begins with packing any personal protective equipment and sanitizers you require. Please adopt physical distancing and hygiene practices throughout your pre-trip travel arrangements and follow all health instruction whether physical signage, or requests from our professional staff, once you are vacationing with us.

In choosing to travel with Uniworld, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Let’s help keep each other safe and healthy.
