Uniworld River Cruises: Life on-board

  • Total cruises 0
  • Fleet: 0 Ships
  • Destinations: 0
Whether you're exploring cities, sitting down to an exquisite meal or winding down once evening arrives sharing stories with fellow guests, your time with Uniworld River Cruises is bound to be a voyage you'll remember for years to come.


During a Uniworld River Cruise the choice of restaurants and dining options that are available is ship-specific, but there is usually at least one plush lounge with a full service bar and one traditional main restaurant, as well as 24-hour coffee stations, terraces and sun decks for alfresco nibbles.

The main dining venue is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and offers a variety of menu choices that are contemporary and continental. You can also enjoy afternoon tea in the main lounge and a bistro menu for all day snacking.

What's more, all Europe-based ships offer in-suite butler service (with butlers trained to the same exacting standards as at Buckingham Palace!) – perfect if you’d prefer to enjoy a private meal from the comfort of your suite.


On every Uniworld ship, a range of modest entertainment options is provided, including authentic local talent when moored in some ports of call. There’s a varied entertainment programme on every ship – often designed to suit the itinerary – with plenty of opportunity to dance, listen to lounge music, and enjoy unassuming and sophisticated live entertainment.

What's more, Uniworld are proud to provide guests with the digital newsstand PressReader. Popular on many ocean liners, Uniworld offers their guests a strong selection of premium papers and magazines from around the world. Other onboard activities include shuffleboard and chess on the Sun Deck (some ships) and a 3D cinema including Dolby surround sound, vintage movie posters and an obligatory popcorn cart (S.S. Antoinette).

Shore Excursions

With Uniworld River Cruises most shore excursions are included in the price of the cruise, and other options are available for a fee. A fleet of bicycles can be found on every Europe-based ship, and they are available for guests to use to explore each port, at no extra charge. Nordic walking sticks are also available for use if guests wish to head off on a hike independently. The onboard enrichment programme, including Signature Lectures from academics, historians and local experts, helps to provide guests with a stimulating and interesting river cruise that embraces the destination culture.

Uniworld River Cruises Ships

Uniworld’s fleet of river cruising ships boast lavish interiors that are bespoke and unique, to create a luxury, boutique hotel feel. Expect to find original art works and furniture created exclusively for Uniworld by master craftsmen.
