2019 BOUTIQUE RIVER CRUISES


You Deserve a Masterpiece. I was introduced to Uniworld for the first time years ago, long before I had the pleasure of joining this magnificent organization. My first impression was similar to what I hear from our past guests— genuinely awestruck. This most luxurious cruise line has that effect on you. The absolutely stunning, exquisite one-of-akind ship designs, authentically passionate crew and the locally inspired food (my gosh, the food) drew me in from the beginning and has yet to lose any luster. Once you set foot on our floating boutique hotels for the first time, I’m certain you’ll know exactly what I mean. Throughout this book, you’ll read about many promises. Promises to provide you with amazing itineraries and onshore opportunities that can’t be found anywhere else. A promise to go above and beyond to make sure even the smallest details are exactly the way you’d like them to be. And a promise to treat our guests, our partners, and this wonderful world we live in with the utmost respect and appreciation. Everything included in the following pages is our pledge to you to deliver a travel experience beyond compare. You deserve the best. You’ll see that message in our communications, but more importantly, you’ll see this commitment firsthand from the moment you step onboard until you wave goodbye after one of our staff personally escorts you to the airport.

I welcome you to join us on one of many amazing cruises in 2019. The world is your canvas. Fill it with something wonderful. Warmest regards,

ELLEN BETTRIDGE President & CEO Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection

Mozart’s, S.S. Beatrice

EACH OF OUR LUXURY FLOATING BOUTIQUE HOTELS brings your destinations onboard. Unique, matchless, inimitable. Take your pick. The ships in our cruise collection are each one-of-a-kind statement pieces, inspired by the beauty, colors, heritage and intricate detail of the incredible destinations you’ll visit. Our 17 award-winning ships are designed to the standards of the world’s finest boutique hotels, complete with handcrafted furniture commissioned exclusively for Uniworld, custom-made fabrics and fixtures created by some of the most esteemed design houses in the world and original artwork from the likes of Picasso, Matisse and Degas. Every room onboard is brimming with character and collectively gives each ship its own distinct personality. Take S.S. Joie de Vivre, a Super Ship inspired by the romance and charm of 20th-century Paris. Or the ultra-luxurious S.S. Beatrice, which recently earned her Super Ship title after undergoing masterful renovations, both on the inside and out. Some are bold, others serene, but each of our floating boutique hotels is unmatched. Originality is the finest form of luxury, as they say.

THE MOST ALL-INCLUSIVE AMENITIES, finely tailored to your tastes.

Wonderful trip to Venice—Uniworld welcomed us at the airport, then whisked us off to the ship. Comfortable cabin, attentive and helpful staff, food outstanding. The local guides were great and the private tour of St. Mark’s Cathedral was so memorable. For as magical as Venice was, our time onboard was even more stunning. The liquor selection was incredible, including all of my favorites, and then some. Unsurpassed in all aspects.” – Alex, Italy on the River Countess


There’s all-inclusive, and then there is the unmatched level of inclusive luxurious amenities that only we provide. Cruise Critic Editors summed it up best when they named us the “Most All-Inclusive River Cruise Line.”

HOW CAN WE MAKE YOUR DAY REMARKABLE? We have a few ideas.

Service isn’t merely a hallmark of distinction on your voyage—it’s at the heart of everything we do. The world’s most exclusive boutique hotels are synonymous with service beyond compare, and as the only cruise line that also operates luxury hotels, that’s exactly what you’ll experience on a river cruise with us, thanks to the most professionally trained and tenured staff on the rivers. While other lines hire contracted workers managed by third parties, our staff and crew are all part of the Uniworld family, adhering to the same standards required by our renowned, award-winning sister brand, The Red Carnation Hotel Collection. Our homegrown approach to service shines through every aspect of your cruise, as evidenced by the many kind notes we receive.

Mrs. Bea Tollman and Uniworld Chefs


01. WE LEARNED FROM THE BEST Food isn’t only an element of your experience. It’s a major part of who we are and how we came to be, with much of the credit given to Mrs. Bea Tollman, founder of our sister brand Red Carnation Hotel Collection, author of the highly acclaimed cookbook A Life in Food and the inspiration behind many of our meals. Mrs. Tollman’s 60+ years of fine-dining experience and personal recipes, like Bea’s Chicken Soup or famous Honeycomb Ice Cream, are staples on our menus. Sometimes, a hearty homemade meal is exactly what you need to make mealtime a masterpiece.

02. APPETIZINGLY ACCOMMODATING FOR ALL DINING PREFERENCES

02.

For those interested in healthier dining options, our Traveling Lite menu features all of the flavor of our traditional menu, but with fewer calories. We also offer a variety of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, prepared just for you. If you have a specific meal preference or desire, just ask. Our chefs will be happy to accommodate.

03.

03. ENDLESS POURS With every meal, you can enjoy a choice of featured fine local wines, selected by our sommelier, and grown and bottled directly in the regions you visit. Or enjoy a glass from Uniworld’s own award-winning vineyard— proudly served aboard every ship. It’s always a good time for wine onboard.

DELICIOUS DINING

Dine, our full-service restaurant and casual eatery, serves farm-to-table cuisine inspired by the culinary styles of the places you’ll visit. Grab brunch and dinner with your two included meals each day or order savory tapas and snacks anytime in the lounge.

EVERY ROOM HAS A VIEW

Both ships feature three different room styles ranging from “I just need a comfortable place to sleep and stash my stuff” to “I’m going all out in a suite,” each with waterfront views and the lush accommodations you would expect from a U cruise. Our spacious triples are perfect for groups, and sleek, comfortable single rooms offer more than enough room for solo travelers. Suite guests will also have access to On Demand Service so any request you have, no matter how big or small, will be taken care of exactly to your liking.

ROOFTOP LOUNGIN’

Grab a drink from Ice Bar and meet us in the Rooftop Lounge. It’s the best view in the house and the spot to meet new friends or listen to a local guest DJ.


BUT OUR CHEFS WILL MAKE YOU FULL. Culture is often experienced through taste, and with that in mind, many of your onboard meals will be inspired by the local fare of the cities you’ll visit, made from ingredients that were sourced just miles down the road. Hungry for something a little closer to home? You’ll have classic options, comfort food choices and plenty of vegan, vegetarian and various healthy dining choices as well. And if you have any special dietary needs, our chefs will be happy to accommodate. It’s all about you, remember!

PASS THE PLATES! We have always been believers in a shared dining experience. Try flavors you’ve never had before when you pass small, socially-inspired plates with friends both old and new. With our master chefs doing the cooking, you can never go wrong.

FOODIE FAVORITES With so many delicious options and crowd favorites to choose from, mealtime can pose some big decisions. Try starting here: 1ST Start your day with fresh-pressed juices from Dine. 2ND Enjoy comfort food recipes from celebrity cookbook author Bea Tollman. 3RD Share tapas with friends in the U Lounge. 4TH Get caffeinated 24/7 at Mugs Coffee Bar.

WHY LIMIT HAPPY TO AN HOUR? We know you’re going to need a pick-me-up with all the exploring you’ll be doing, so all the water, tea and coffee you can drink is included! For alcoholic beverages, you have the choice to purchase drinks as needed from one of our two onboard bars or buy the U Drink Package and enjoy all of the local craft beer, wine and cocktails you want!


STEP OFF THE SHIP, AND INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN. Each day, you’re given the option to explore in one of three ways—included excursions and activities, optional U Time outings or a self-guided tour of the cities.

INCLUDED EXCURSIONS

Look through each of our itineraries to discover all of the adventures and tours that come complimentary, ranging from an evening bike ride along the Danube, a “Midnight in Paris” evening stroll, vineyard hikes, castle visits and much more.

TRAVEL YOUR WAY

Plan your day down to a T or head out with no set schedule in mind and see where life takes you.

LET’S TALK ABOUT U TIME.

Check out the specially planned excursions, events and activities created by our destination experts. Most days, you’ll have several U Time optionals to choose from. Some are relaxed, while others are for the high-energy crowd. But all are designed for you to experience the places you visit in authentic local fashion. With the added benefits of the best prices, transportation to and from the ship and an experience designed exactly how you want it, you can’t go wrong.

Art takes on many forms, and this tour showcases the creativity you won’t find in museums. See Paris’ socially and ethnically diverse neighborhoods as you dive into its thriving street art culture.

PADDLE POWER Bamberg, Germany
