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

Douro River Uniworld

Tables for breakfast should be cleared before being set There should have been waiter service on the top deck and glasses were regularly left on this deck overnight Some of the staff stood out (receptionist), tour guide, waitresses and barman Cruise Director was a liability and should remember that her attitude to passengers should be kind, friendly and patient - she was not any of those Bar service was good On the basis of this trip we would not travel on Uniworld again, this was influenced by Cruise director and maleThat is in contrast to the male waiters that were not.Read More

Uniworld Has Changed for the Worse

We had no support, no information and no help as we arranged for a cab to take us from the ship to a hotel near the airport.Uniworld wanted no data or information made public about the rate of positive tests associated with their company.Read More

Great final cruise leg in France

On any tours with significant walking, the tour manager organized a "gentle walking" group to accommodate those who might need a slower speed, allowing the other groups to do more.The food was excellent throughout the trip, and the wine choices were good as well.Read More
