Why a River Cruise?
Besides being one of the most immersive ways to cruise, it’s also one of the safest! On smaller ships that cruise through countries, not around them, you’ll have the security of constant proximity to land and be one of just a few dozen passengers instead of a few thousand.

Uniworld’s locally-based destination experts will take you well beyond the “must-sees” of each region, offering fresh takes on classic sites, insider knowledge of delightful under-the-radar locales, and VIP access to places only a privileged few will ever experience—such as a private early-morning viewing of the acclaimed art collection of the Kunstkammer Vienna. A veritable showcase of the best of Central Europe, this new journey is one any culturally curious world traveler will love, featuring old-world capitals and charming towns and villages.
