Boutique Ships - Excellent Service

For over 30 years, Uniworld Boutique river cruises have occupied a unique position on the rivers of the world and built up a very loyal following of customers. Their owned and operated ships offer a boutique experience with a leisurely pace, excellent food and drink, and staff who are trained to not just respond but pre-empt every customer request. A floating hotel with a very friendly and intimate feel waits you.

Since 1976 Uniworld has won countless awards from the votes of their customers, the most recent being in the Cruise Awards 2012 when they won, again, Best River Cruise Line.

Character & Style

Each Uniworld ship has a unique character whether it be the 109 passenger River Queen, voted by Condé Nast Traveller's readers "Best Cruise Ship" in 2011 or the new 135m SS Antoinette with its unique electronic French balcony system - the push of a button raises or lowers the full window by half to create an outdoor space. All ships have been remodelled by the award winning designers at Red Carnation Hotels. The decor could be considered bold, feminine and striking rather than contemporary but it offers an opulence that few passengers don't grow to love.

Fine Dining Onboard

Food and drink is very much a focus for Uniworld and they are rightfully very proud of their onboard dining experience as well as their Epicurean Adventurer programme which includes chef demonstrations, wine tasting and interesting, informative talks. Sample dishes include confit of duck, lobster thermador as well as lighter options and cuisine of the particular region. Beatrice Tollman's "A Life in Food" is heavily referenced throughout from her signature salad dressing to a variety of unique recipes, it is worth looking for her dish at every meal time. Wine and beer are also included, free flowing at lunch as well as dinner.

Set Your Own Pace

Daily excursions are included under the watch of a highly entertaining and experienced Cruise Manager but this is not all rush. Gentle walking tours are available and it is completely up to you how much or how little you do.

Ask a Question

We have been lucky enough to cruise on a number of the Uniworld ships, so we'd love to answer your questions on a product we really enjoy.
