What to Expect on a Boutique River Cruise

Boutique Cruising is a Different Kind of Luxury

Uniworld puts a unique spin on river cruising, with floating boutique hotels that are meticulously designed with the signature touches for which their company is known. Each and every ship in the European fleet is rich in character and truly one-of-a-kind, with its own distinctive theme and color palette, original art and sumptuous furnishings and antiques.

Uniworld’s iconic ships exemplify true artistry, the very essence of their boutique philosophy. In partnership with the design visionaries at Uniworld’s award-winning sister company—the Red Carnation Hotel Collection—their ships have a stylish flair inspired by the rivers upon which they cruise, a blend of old-world elegance, the latest technological innovations, and ultra-luxurious amenities.

Great care is taken to ensure that every element onboard—down to the smallest detail—has been thoughtfully considered and flawlessly rendered.

Uniworld Dining

The Cuisine

When dining onboard, you’ll be treated to world-class cuisine made from fresh ingredients, locally sourced from the destinations you visit.

From Farm to Ship

Farm-to-table isn’t just a trendy culinary buzzword. It’s a governing philosophy and commitment to serving you the very best local dishes created by Uniworld’s master chefs.

When in Italy, dinner may consist of Prosciutto di Parma pizza and Osso Buco Milanese, prepared to your liking, with meats and vegetables sourced from just miles away. After a day immersed in Indian culture, your taste buds may do some immersing of their own with Gajar Shorba and Tandoori Chicken Tikka for lunch. Live brilliantly. Dine locally.

Vegetarian & Vegan Options

For those interested in healthier dining options, the Traveling Lite menu features all of the flavor of their traditional menu, but with fewer calories. Uniworld also offers a variety of vegetarian and vegan options, prepared just for you. If you have a specific meal preference, just ask. The chefs will be happy to accommodate.

The Facilities

Keep up with your favorite fitness routine or try something completely new. Your Uniworld experience includes many options to stay fit both onboard and onshore.


Wellness is a universal language, and whichever cruise you choose, you’ll have access to the Wellness on the Water programs and amenities. From beginning your morning with a yoga session on the sun deck to taking a dip in the ship’s heated swimming pool, there’s something for everyone.

“Let’s Go” Excursions

Uniworld’s “Let’s Go” onshore programme feature guided walking, hiking, cycling, kayaking and golfing tours, as well as gondola rowing and more. Hit the links with a round of golf at Golf d’Étretat perched on the French clifftops, more than 150 feet above sea level, admire the ancient Pont du Gard from the perspective of a river kayak, or trek through Europe’s lush vineyards in Germany’s Moselle Valley on a guided hiking tour. Wherever your journey takes you, there will be many opportunities to get out and go.

Your Stateroom

Uniworld’s suites and staterooms provide an elegant and serene onboard sanctuary throughout your journey.
