Why River Cruising?
Savor the Journey and the Destination
Sitting on the sun deck of a one-of-a-kind Uniworld ship, experiencing Europe from a perspective only the river can provide, there may be a moment when you realize that this journey is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced and beyond anything you could have expected.
River cruising sets an indulgent and luxurious tone for your European journey. Aboard, you have all the amenities of a boutique hotel —butlers, sommeliers, fitness facilities, spas, internet access, and elegant river-view suites and staterooms to be your serene sanctuary throughout your journey. Distances between ports on rivers are much shorter than the ports of ocean cruises. River cruises allow guests to travel from one exciting destination to the next aboard a stylish floating hotel with inviting lounges, cozy libraries, panoramic restaurants, and refined artistry.
