U by Uniworld – a ground-breaking brand from Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection – is now available for bookings, allowing travel enthusiasts aged 21 to 45 to experience nine enticing European itineraries beginning in spring 2018.
U by Uniworld’s line-up of onboard programming includes Wine & Paint Classes, where passengers can sip on a glass of local wine while painting the scenery before them; Mixology Classes taught by the master bartenders onboard; and Chef’s Table Cooking Classes, a tasty way to experience the culinary riches of each destination.
Onshore experiences are designed for those with a passion for exploration and a taste for authenticity, allowing ample time for passengers to meet locals, discover restaurants and bars in each city and enjoy both independent discovery and guided excursions. Each day on U by Uniworld, guests are given the flexible options to explore in one of three ways – included excursions and activities, optional “U Time” outings, or a self-guided tour of the cities. Curated programming is tailored to individual travel personalities, such as foodies, culture buffs, adventure seekers, explorers, solo travellers, romantics, and night owls, with itineraries to satisfy every individual’s passions.
Foodies will salivate over local market shopping with the ship’s chef in Rouen while culture buffs will delight in a guided bike tour of top World War II sites in Nuremberg. Adventures can rock climb at 6,500 ft. or white water raft, explorers can kayak through UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and solo travellers will love creating a custom drink to their tastes after meeting a Master Distiller at the world’s largest hands-on cocktail exhibit in Amsterdam. Couples can reconnect with romance on a horse-drawn carriage ride in Vienna, and night owls can sample the abandoned buildings of Budapest which have been transformed into the city’s trendiest bars and clubs.
When night time falls, “U Hosts” are on hand to bring guests the local hotspots and hidden gems in each city. Experiences range from visiting a U Host’s favourite nightclub in Amsterdam to wandering along the banks of the Seine on a midnight stroll in Paris, where travellers will experience Paris at one of the most magical times of the evening before venturing off for a night out. There will be DJs onboard both ships as well as other night time entertainment for fun.
The A and The B offer three room categories – Studio, Balcony and Suites – all with river views. Suites featuring French balconies and a living room area are perfect for honeymooners and those celebrating a special occasion. Balcony rooms are ideal for pairs, and groups of friends traveling together can enjoy Studio rooms that can accommodate up to three passengers. Solo travellers can take advantage of single rooms or special room share rates.
