For nearly four decades, Uniworld has taken guests to the world’s greatest destinations—Europe, Russia, China and Egypt. Since 2006, when Uniworld was purchased by Travel Corporation, parent company of many popular travel companies such as Trafalgar, Insight, Brendan, and Contiki, as well as Red Carnation Hotels – the award-winning five-star luxury hotel collection – Uniworld has made major investments in its ships and its people. The ultimate goal of these investments—a first-class European River Cruise boutique, hotel-style experience. The winning combination of Uniworld’s sister companies’ expertise in tour planning and in first-class hotel management coupled with Uniworld’s decades of superior nautical experience has created a new dimension in river cruising.
Uniworld’s company-owned boutique hotel-style ships
Boutique hotel designers often invest a lot of thought, time and resources into an interior decor reflective of a destination, as well as the amenities that assure an elegant, relaxed and intimate experience. This is apparent on each of Uniworld’s ten company-owned ships! Over the course of the last couple of years, Uniworld’s ships have been completely refurbished to the highest standard of comfort, so guests travel from one exciting destination to the next with access to stylish lounges, cozy libraries, panoramic restaurants offering sumptuous cuisine and inviting riverview staterooms.
Expect more personalized attention with Uniworld
Uniworld employs an all English, professionally trained staff, so there are no language barriers and no problems with understanding what is being said or going on. All announcements are made only in English. Unlike many companies offering river cruise programs in Europe and elsewhere, Uniworld is an American company focused on North American travelers, or at least English-speaking clientele (the trips are popular with Canadians and folks from Down Under as well).
