Uniworld Cruises 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., Australia and Asia onboard. The bulk of passengers fall into the traditional 60-plus river cruise age group, but a growing trend 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 cruisings, and you'll find sailings aimed at Jewish Heritage, LGBTQ+ travelers and active travelers, as well as families.

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 highly inclusive with some differences depending on the itinerary. In general, all meals, unlimited drinks, most shore excursions, Wi-Fi and onboard gratuities) 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 or 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 performances 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 more luxurious lines.
  • Sails rivers in Europe, Southeast Asia, India and Egypt.
  • Intriguing variety of tour options.

Best for: Affluent travelers who enjoy a touch of luxury in a boutique ship setting

Not for: Young travelers, passengers with mobility issues and people who prefer a more a la carte experience

Amazing adventure

Wonderful experience You will encounter some delays, some poverty, some pushy peddlers but the overall experience is amazing Uniworld does a great job of anticipating many little details to allow you to relax and enjoy the journey Uniworld is very responsive to guest wishes—it’s all about the passengers experience Food is fabulous Excursions excellent Plenty of relaxation time Egypt had lovely friendly people Hot air balloon ride was not on the agenda but a large number of us wanted this—so Uniworld made it happen Abu Simbel is an optional excursion Amazing site but be aware it’s a long day for a relatively short excursion (leave ship, travel by bus to airport, wait for flight, fly to Abu Simbel, bus to site…the repeat all to return to shop in time for lunch) Time at site was about 30-60 min (they allow more but everyone done that quick ) Staff are 5 starRead More

Douro is a No-Go!

The Lisbon extension was ok.So, either go on the offered excursion or you have no view and no place to walk off the ship.Read More

Week 3 of Ultimate France Oct 2023 (Please read all 3 parts!)

There is no bistro on-board this ship & there were 147 passengers onboard - this might be why dining room service suffered during week 3.Why is there no hot food on the room service menu???Read More

Week 2 of Ultimate France Oct 2023 (please read all 3 parts!)

Already during week 1, I had thought the food was just ok so I was starting to struggle with what to choose as nothing looked particularly exciting.Unlike on Ship #1, no one paid attention to my friend's gluten allergy until she highlighted it in the midweek feedback survey.Read More
