When your waterfront hotel is also your taxi, bar, favorite restaurant, nightclub and yoga studio, travel becomes a bit more relaxed and a lot more hassle-free.

Onboard, you can expect everything you’d find in your favorite boutique hotel. But here’s the best part. Your floating boutique hotel makes it extra-easy to visit several European destinations in a single trip while only having to unpack once.

The A makes her home on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, flowing through The Netherlands and Central Europe. She’s sleek and sophisticated. Remind you of anyone?

To travel is to eat, and you will eat well on your cruise with U. Culture is often experienced through taste, and with that in mind, many of your onboard meals will be inspired by the local fare of the cities you’ll visit, made from ingredients that were sourced just miles down the road. Hungry for something a little closer to home? You’ll have classic options, comfort food choices and plenty of vegan, vegetarian and various healthy dining choices as well. And if you have any special dietary needs, the  chef’s would be happy to accommodate. It’s all about you, remember?

Restaurant

Experience: complimentary

Food: regional

When onboard, you’ll have two meals a day included, based on the daily schedule. You can anticipate a creative modern dining experience, with many organic, vegetarian and healthy culinary options. But if you’re craving a slightly less healthy juicy burger with bacon jam, goat cheese and a fresh side of fries, U have got you covered.

The master chefs aim to bring a taste of your destinations onboard, using locally sourced ingredients. Local street food, like German Käsekreiner, will be served whenever possible. Fresh, flavourful and made just for U. 

  • Build your own pizza with fresh local toppings.
  • Homemade granola with fresh-pressed juices.
  • Street food-inspired Currywurst in Germany.
  • Sucklin pig pickin’ bucket.
  • Comfort food from celebrity cookbook author Bea Tollman.

With U by Uniworld’s VizEat partnership, you can taste the city and share a meal in the home of a U Host. It’s authentic home cooking meets immersive travel. Learn more at Vizeat.com.

Sip a glass of wine while you cruise past beautiful landscapes and world-famous landmarks on your way to your next destination...

Rooftop Lounge

Grab a drink and meet us on the top deck, where the glass enclosed room disappears into the floor to create an open-air hangout. It’s the best view in the house and the spot to meet new friends or listen to a local guest DJ. With a casual dining venue and lounge seating, it’s the place to be.

Coffee Bar

Perk up with a fresh-made specialty coffee or tea. You’ve got a lot of exploring to stay caffeinated for.

Bars

For enjoying a signature U cocktail, craft beer or your favorite drink at whatever hour you choose. There are two bars onboard.

All of the water, tea and coffee you can drink is included. Are you feeling it? And if that isn’t enough, you can hit one of two onboard bars for a local craft beer, glass of wine, or your favourite cocktail or specialty coffee. Sip, sip, no worries.

    Silent Disco

    If you’ve never been, now is the time. The resident DJ runs the party and everyone wears headphones in sync with the music. But just take them off to chat with your friends. It’s sophistication meets party jams.

    At every stop along your U journey, you’re always just one choice away from yet another exciting adventure. Each day on U, you’re given the option to explore in one of three ways—included excursions and activities, optional U Time outings or a self-guided tour of your cities.

    U understand if you don’t want to get off, it's fun onboard..

    There is plenty of fun to be had onshore, but your time onboard will be just as exciting. The lineup of daily activities and events were all created with U in mind.

    Included Excursions

    Look through each of the four itineraries to discover all of the adventures and tours that come complimentary, ranging from an evening bike ride along the Danube (or a daytime bike ride in Frankfurt with the U bikes that are available for your use), a “Midnight in Paris” evening stroll, a canal cruise in Amsterdam, vineyard hikes, castle visits, and much more.

    Complimentary transfers will take you into town whenever you like. Plan out your day down to the T or head out with no set schedule in mind and see where life takes you.

    U Time

    The itineraries are chock full of U Time—specially planned additional excursions, events and activities created by our destination experts with you in mind. Most days, you’ll have several U Time optionals to choose from, in between your included excursions. Some are relaxed and low key while others are for the high-energy crowd. But all are designed for you to experience the places you visit in authentic local fashion. And with the added benefits of the best prices, transportation to and from the ship and the backing of the staff to ensure your cruise is exactly the way you’d like it to be, you can’t go wrong.

    Paint & Wine

    On days you're docked in a picture-perfect location, head to the top deck for a painting class and create your very own masterpiece. You bring your artistic side. U by Uniworld bring the wine and supplies.

    Mixology Class

    What’s the secret for getting the smoke-infused flavour into your smoky bourbon cocktail? The master bartenders will show you.

    Chef's Cooking Classes

    Join the Chef as he takes you through a multi-course cooking class. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labour. Or the appetizers, entrees and desserts.

    There is a large gym onboard and the ship has its own wellness coach. 

    The Gym

    Keep your workout routine intact, even while on the other side of the world.

    Yoga

    Find your center with a complimentary morning top-deck yoga session, led by the ship’s wellness coach. The views are sure to help with the meditation.

    There are no children's facilities.
