Uniworld Boutique River Cruises

Ellen Bettridge - Uniworld Boutique River Cruises

The Journey of a Lifetime Awaits

“At Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, we want women to be able to come on board and make new friends and connect with others and really experience the world in a magical way. We’re not looking for the one-time person who comes to go on that one river cruise. I want someone who really realize that this is a pretty spectacular way to travel. They come once and the cool part is we keep to see them come back year after year.”

Commitment to Solo Travel

Uniworld has waived the single supplement on some of its most popular European itineraries, including trips to ItalyGermanyFrance, and many more. In 2024, Uniworld has eliminated the single supplement on some of the brand’s most popular European itineraries, including ‘Venice & The Jewels of Veneto’ where guests can experience a luxury river cruise in Venice via the only cruise line sailing in the Venetian lagoon on the S.S. La Venezia; ‘Castles Along the Rhine’ for a quintessential river cruising experience along the fabled Rhine River onboard the brand-new S.S. Victoria and more.

According to Uniworld, these all-inclusive itineraries are ideal for solo travellers, with small ships averaging at just 120 passengers for an intimate and hassle-free travel experience. Uniworld saw a sharp increase in solo travellers in 2023 compared to 2019: a 31% total increase, with a 61% increase in female travellers. Solo travellers can take comfort in knowing that Uniworld takes care of all trip details from start to finish, including airport transfers, thoughtfully curated itineraries with daily excursion options, onboard entertainment, farm-to-table dining and much more.

Uniworld—the world’s best and most awarded luxury river cruise line—offers itineraries in spectacular destinations throughout Europe, Egypt, Asia, and Peru. Our fleet features luxurious ships with an average capacity of 120 guests, one of the highest crew-to-guest ratios in the river cruise industry, enticing shore excursions, world-class gourmet cuisine, impeccable hospitality, and the highest degree of all-inclusive benefits on the rivers.

The Highest Standards in Luxury River Cruising

In 2004, Uniworld was acquired by The Travel Corporation (TTC), a highly successful international travel group founded by Stanley Tollman. TTC has 40 top brands, including Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, and Contiki, as well as Red Carnation Hotels, a renowned collection of four- and five-star luxury properties.

Combining the tour planning and hotel management expertise of TTC’s sister companies with Uniworld’s decades of superior nautical experience has created an entirely new category of luxury river cruising. Together, we’ve made major investments in our ships, crew, and staff, with an eye towards providing guests with all the elements of an unforgettable experience: Outstanding Service; The Most All-Inclusive Amenities; One-of-a-Kind Ships; Carefully Curated Experiences; Culinary Excellence; Wellness and a Commitment to Sustainability.

Commitment to Sustainability

Travel can and should be a force for good, which is why we’ve introduced an entirely new role to help keep pushing us towards a brighter future.

“What has become blatantly clear for us is that to make progress, we need to ensure that we can measure, and understand our impact. Once we can measure, only then can we manage!” –Julie Higgins, Sustainability Officer for Uniworld
