Uniworld Boutique River Cruises

Uniworld is the only river cruise line to design its ships using inspiration from the rivers they sail upon. With distinctive themes, colour palettes, custom-made fabrics, personally selected original artwork, sumptuous furnishings and antiques, each element, down to the smallest detail, has been thoughtfully considered and flawlessly rendered.

As a sister brand to the Red Carnation Hotel collection, each Uniworld ship has been designed to resemble the finest floating boutique hotel. There’s more to Uniworld’s fleet than the design; all of their Super Ships come complete with multiple dining venues, each serving locally inspired authentic cuisine, plus larger public spaces and enhanced suites and staterooms. The average capacity for a Uniworld ship is just 130 guests. While Uniworld’s fleet will never be the biggest, their goal is to provide the most luxurious ship on whichever river they sail on.
