Uniworld Cruise Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on Uniworld cruise ships?

Uniworld attracts affluent, sophisticated travelers, the majority of whom are North Americans, but you'll also find passengers from the U.K. and Australia onboard. The bulk of passengers fall into the traditional 60-plus river cruise age group, but a good sprinkling of people aged 40 to 60 are also drawn to the stylish onboard ambience.

In addition, Uniworld was one of the first lines to offer themed family cruising, and those sailings attract multigenerational groups.

Do I have to dress up on a Uniworld cruise?

Somewhat. Uniworld passengers run to smart-casual by day, but at night they almost always opt for dressier outfits, especially at the captain's welcome and farewell festivities. For those meals, as well as select dining ashore or concert options, the line suggests men bring a sports jacket and women, a cocktail dress or pantsuit. With that said, Uniworld only asks that cruisers not wear shorts to dinner.

Is everything free on Uniworld cruises?

No, but the experience is fairly inclusive with some differences depending on the itinerary. In general, unlimited drinks, most shore excursions, Wi-Fi and gratuities (onboard and on shore) are all included in the cruise fare. Access to onboard bikes and a self-service launderette are also complimentary.

You will pay extra for some shore excursions, as well as spa and beauty treatments.

What are Uniworld’s most popular activities?

The ports of call draw passengers off the ship for much of the day and when they return onboard, they tend to spend quite a lot of time in the public rooms socializing. The indoor and outdoor pools attract more passengers than usual on river cruises, and the gym and spa facilities get plenty of use.

Whenever offered, passengers gather for onboard programs, such as wine tastings, culinary classes and local group performance of traditional regional arts. Speakers from the line's Signature Lecture Series also usually draw a crowd. Dancing in the evening can prove popular depending on the passenger mix.

Why go with Uniworld?

  • One of river cruising's most luxurious lines.
  • Sails rivers in Europe, Russia, Asia, India and Egypt.
  • Intriguing variety of tour options.

Best for: Affluent travelers who enjoy a touch of opulence with their luxury

Not for: Young families, passengers with mobility issues and anyone who prefers subtle elegance over opulence

Exceptional Nile Cruise

The nature of this cruise meant it was hectic with a lot of early morning excursions but everyone worthwhile.A Nile River Cruise has been on our bucket list and this did not disappoint.Read More

The Nile in style

It turned out to be a fantastic trip, with everything one could possibly want included: business class air fare, 5 star Cairo hotel, daily fully guided tours, meal time drinks and , of course, an excellent reputation.We spotted an advertisement for a Uniworld cruise on the Nile that seemed to include so much, plus a few days in Cairo.Read More

A dream tour

We rigorously stuck to using bottled water for teeth brushing and didn't get sick at all, although some others had a day or two with the standard Indian tummy upset.All decent quality and a big choice so if you're not too keen on Indian cuisine, they'll cater for you.Read More

Parts Very Good, Parts Very Bad

I believe this is just the nature of the beast one has to go through in order to see these sites.The only negative I would place on the itinerary is that some days there was way too many sites stuffed into one day.Read More
