U by Uniworld back for 2019 PLUS Camping on the Top Deck!

U by Uniworld river cruise line is back for 2019, and expanding!

U by Uniworld’s inaugural 2018 season was a success.  And they have awards to prove it!

They’re back in 2019 on the Seine, Main, Rhine and Danube rivers.  

There’s a new itinerary for 2019 and it’s the “Northern France at a Glance” on the Seine River.

This cruise starts on a Sunday in Paris but returns back to Paris on Friday so that you get Friday and Saturday day and night in the city of lights.  

This itinerary will be in demand as 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day.  Lot’s of river cruise lines have sold out many of their Seine cruises. If not sold out, there’s limited availability.

U by Uniworld visits some amazing iconic cities and small villages.  But they’re also about having fun on board.

So they’re bringing back the Painting & Wine, Silent Disco, Mixology Classes and Yoga on the Top Deck.  They’ll be adding a rooftop BBQ, Karaoke, Giant Board Games, Themed Parties, Romance Packages, and much more!

  

And in my opinion, one of the coolest new things they’re going to be doing is Rooftop Camping.  You’ll spend the night under the stars with a nightcap and a breakfast picnic in the morning for 2!  How awesome is that?

In 2020 they’ll be adding a 3rd ship sailing on the Mekong river.  Stay tuned for information on that.

If any of that sounds fun to you, well then, U by Uniworld is perfect option for you!
