Who goes on U River Cruises cruise ships?

U River Cruises attracts a wide variety of cruisers, though despite its target audience, you'll find more 40- and 50-somethings than 20-year-olds. Most are from the U.S.

Do I have to dress up on a U River Cruises cruise?

No. The tongue-in-cheek advice on the U website states: "Come as you are, as long as you have clothes on. No shirt, no shoes, no service."

Is everything free on U River Cruises cruises?

No. Meals are included along with complimentary water, coffee and tea all day long, and juice at breakfast. All other drinks cost extra. Wi-Fi, gratuities and the use of one of the 50 bicycles kept onboard is also included. One shore excursion is included per port but all others must be purchased.

What are U River Cruises’s most popular activities?

People choose U River Cruises for its alternative vision of river cruising. The more interactive, unique or active the option, the more popular it is -- extended bike tours, pretzel-making classes, rock climbing and other such tours, for example.

Other popular activities are morning yoga classes and local DJ nights in the onboard nightclub.

Why go with U River Cruises?

  • Cool ships that stand out from the crowd
  • First line geared toward younger travelers with rooftop lounges and yoga studios
  • Overnight stays and longer stops in cities

Best for: Young and young-at-heart travelers looking for a hip and lively river cruise experience

Not for: Mature, early-to-bed cruisers or anyone looking for a fully inclusive river cruise
