About Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection

The Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is a fleet of lavishly appointed boutique-style river boats with an average capacity of 130 passengers. Their cruise itineraries are thoughtfully planned and feature custom shore excursions, exceptional cuisine (acknowledged by Zagat for "top dining"), and outstanding service from an all-English speaking staff. Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection offers over 500 departures on 40 itineraries; they sail on 13 rivers in over 20 countries in Europe, Russia, Egypt, China, Vietnam, and Cambodia.

After the current owners, Travel Corporation, acquired Uniworld in 2004, they refurbished and upgraded the existing ships and acquired a number of new ships. The newest and most attractive are the S.S. Antoinette and the S.S. Catherine (2014). Both have larger-than-average cabins, alfresco dining, marble bathrooms, swimming pools (with adjoining bars) and "touch windows," which are alcove conservatories that transform into open-air balconies with the touch of a button.
In 2013, seven of Uniworld's boutique river cruise ships were listed in Travel + Leisure's 2013 World's Best Awards for "Top 20 River Cruise Ships." The company's River Countess had the Number One spot, with the highest score of all cruise ships (both river and ocean). Out of a possible 100, the River Countess scored 95.83.

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is best for:

Mature well-traveled adults who wish an exceptional river cruise experience;
First-timers seeking a luxurious boutique-type river cruise.

The atmosphere and experience onboard Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection:

Thanks to Uniworld's connection with Red Carnation Hotels, a family-owned, world-class hotel company known for excellence in design and luxury, the line's ships are exceptionally stylish and elegantly laid out, featuring high-end furnishings, fine antiques and original artwork.

Each ship has a distinct personality and theme. Luxuriously appointed staterooms have hand-crafted Savoir hotel-style beds, a choice of pillows, Egyptian cotton sheets, European-style duvets and comforters, flat-screen TV with infotainment center and satellite, marble bathroom with L'Occitane bath and body products, waffle robes and slippers and complimentary WiFi. Many have French balconies.

Included in the ticket price: Wine, beer and soft drinks during lunch and dinner; bottled water in staterooms; specialty coffee and tea bar; a variety of dining venues; signature lectures and local entertainment; airport transfers on arrival and departure days; most shore excursions, given by English-speaking local experts using the Quietvox audio systems. Excursions can be personalized to accommodate either an "active" or "gentle" physical level.

Evening activities are similar to those on other river lines and might consist of local musicians, dancers and other local entertainers.

The Multigenerational Family-Friendly Cruise Program offered during the summer months on some itineraries offers good opportunities for generational travel with somewhat older children.

The line is said to moving toward all-inclusive fares, which will additionally cover unlimited wine, beer and spirits, all gratuities.

The destinations served by Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection:
  • China
  • Egypt
  • Europe
  • Russia
  • Vietnam and Cambodia
The clientele of Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection:

Mostly North Americans, some Brits; mostly seniors. Uniworld also attracts some 40+ guests and successfully runs a few multi-generational themed family cruises each year.

Regarding children onboard Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection: Uniworld's long-term experience is that most young children (especially those under 8 years of age) do not enjoy or appreciate the river cruise experience. There are no special arrangements, activities or accommodations for children on Uniworld river cruises and tour programs. An exception to this is their Multigenerational Family-Friendly Cruise Program, which is offered on select itineraries during the summer months.
