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!

Energy and nightlife on a European river cruise

The Europe river cruise market is about to get infused with some energy!  U by Uniworld is a cruise line that was originally targeted towards younger travelers ranging from 21-45.  This was however recently changed to include ALL TRAVELERS who wanted to experience the rivers, but at the same time, add some spice to their experience.

In the past, river cruising was more geared towards a more mature crowd.  But that’s quickly changing.  Younger people, including millennial travelers, love the idea of being dropped into the center of major cities in Europe to experience the food, culture, nightlife, and way of life.

The difference between a river cruise and a land tour is that you’ll unpack just once, and travel between one destination and another in style and comfort.  Dock right in the center of the city and start exploring!

There are no long bus rides from one city to the next.  The ships are floating hotels with a restaurant, bar, yoga studio, gym, coffee house, rooftop lounge and nightclub all on board.

There are currently itineraries that visit 27 cities on 4 rivers (Seine River, Rhine River, Main River, and Danube River).
Some of the highlights include:
  • Paris, France
  • Amsterdam, Netherlands
  • Frankfurt, Germany
  • Vienna, Austria
  • Bratislava, Slovakia
  • Budapest, Hungary

Cruises range from 7 nights or a longer “super cruise” that’s 14 or 21 nights.  There are 9 river cruises to choose from.

U by Uniworld has 2 river ships in their fleet.  Both are stylish with ultra modern amenities.  The B, sails on France’s Seine.  The A, sails the Rhine, Main, and Danube.

Who is the U by Uniworld traveler?

  • Anyone looking for more nightlife and energy in their European river cruise
  • Group of friends
  • Anniversary celebration
  • Young couples
  • Solo travelers
  • Honeymoon vacation
  • Babymoon last hurrah
  • Birthday celebration
  • Just because you need a much needed break!

U by Uniworld is owned and operated by Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, a luxury river cruise line that has been in operation since 1976.  Uniworld is very highly rated and reviewed.  They’re one of the BEST on the European rivers.
