Boutique Ships

Our Design Philosophy

Uniworld puts a unique spin on river cruising, with floating boutique hotels that are meticulously designed with the signature touches for which our company is known.

Uniworld’s iconic ships exemplify true artistry, the very essence of our boutique philosophy. In partnership with the design visionaries at our award-winning sister company – the Red Carnation Hotel Collection – our ships have a stylish flair inspired by the rivers upon which they cruise, a blend of old-world elegance, the latest technological innovations, and ultra-luxurious amenities.

We take great care to ensure that every element onboard – down to the smallest detail – has been thoughtfully considered and flawlessly rendered. Our mission: to provide our discerning guests with a truly unsurpassed and unforgettable river cruise experience.

Unsurpassed Luxury

The Difference is in the Details

There’s a moment on every Uniworld boutique river cruise when it becomes clear. Maybe it’s while luxuriating in the comfort in your exceptionally appointed stateroom or suite. Or savouring yet another culinary masterpiece prepared by our master chefs. Or while experiencing the wonders of China from a perspective only the river can provide. A moment when you realise that this journey is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced and beyond anything you could have expected.
