Design PhilosophyView More
Uniworld is known for floating, boutique hotels that are truly one-of-a-kind. Meticulously designed down to the smallest details, each ship in the Uniworld fleet has its own distinctive theme, custom fabrics, original art, and sumptuous furnishings.
Inspired by the regions through which they sail, Uniworld’s designers have mastered a unique blend of old-world elegance, the latest technological innovations and ultra-luxurious amenities. Every element onboard has been thoughtfully considered and flawlessly rendered, with the goal of providing guests with a truly unsurpassed and unforgettable river cruising experience.
Every guestroom is well-appointed and comfortably fitted with Savoir® Beds of England, the highest quality linens and marble-lined bathrooms. Every detail has been designed with your ultimate comfort in mind.
If you choose to stay in one of Uniworld’s spacious suites, you’ll enjoy outstanding butler service, Asprey and Hermès bath products, a fully stocked bar, fresh snacks delivered daily and more. Each suite is individually designed with unique fabrics and stylish touches – no two are the same.
Uniworld ships feature stylish restaurants where guests can linger over multi-course meals, an expansive Sun Deck, and plush lounges with full-service bars—the ideal spot for drinks with friends and after-dinner entertainment. Each ship also has well-equipped fitness centers and a spa, perfect for an invigorating workout or a relaxing massage.
Uniworld’s Super Ships epitomize luxury with additional dining venues, more suites, and beautiful stylistic elements – such as grand staircases and large-scale mosaics. The collection of Super Ships grows every year, with 6 currently on the water and 4 more coming in 2020.
Uniworld’s onboard Signature Lectures are presented by academics, art historians, and other local experts, designed to provide guests with an engaging and mind-expanding perspective on the art, history, cuisine, and unique cultural traditions of their destination.
Health and fitness are very important with Uniworld guests, so they supply ample opportunities to stay active throughout your journey. Onshore, go hiking or cycling with a sports guide or expert naturalist, paddle a kayak under an ancient Roman aqueduct, or borrow a bike or Nordic walking sticks to explore on your own. Onboard, get your heart pumping in the well-equipped fitness center, take an exercise class with an onboard wellness coach, or try something new—like the Five Tibetan Rites or a private TRX workout.
A leisurely-paced river cruise is ideal for anyone in need of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Pamper yourself with a wellness treatment in the tranquil Serenity River Spa™. Unwind with a gentle yoga session. Slip away to the luxury of your beautiful stateroom or suite, where you’ll find comfy robes and soothing Hermès and Asprey bath and body products. Sheer bliss!
