The B

    A river cruise with U, a fresh approach to cruising for 21-45 year olds, is an effortless way to travel from city to city across Europe, completely tailored to your personal tastes. You book, you get excited, and we take care of just about everything else. Along the way, you’ll discover awe-inspiring scenes, inspirational moments, and pics so pretty, your Facebook friends will be just a little bit envious.

    The B cruises down France’s Seine River. Her chic style and Parisian influence will put you in the French spirit even before stepping off.

    Think of us as a boutique hotel that moves seamlessly throughout Europe, with meals, transportation and activities all built in. Pack and unpack once while we take care of all the details in between. We’ve got it covered from bow to stern. Relax onboard, spend your day and night in town on your own or embark on one of our many carefully curated excursions. It’s all up to you and how you want to spend your vacation.

    Our sister brand, the luxurious award-winning Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, features the most professionally trained staff on the rivers. The same staff and crew is now on U, along with two dedicated hosts from Contiki, a high-energy travel company that is also part of our family. Look forward to unmatched service from a young, fun and friendly team.

Activities on The B

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

  • PAINT AND WINE On days we’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. We’ll bring the wine and supplies.
  • CHEF'S COOKING CLASSES Join our Chef as he takes you through a multi-course cooking class. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labor. Or the appetizers, entrees and desserts.
  • MIXOLOGY CLASS What’s the secret for getting the smoke-infused flavor into your smoky bourbon cocktail? Our master bartenders will show you.
  • 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.
  • STAY CONNECTED A week without Wifi sounds terrifying and we’d never do that to you. Onboard, you’ll enjoy complimentary Wifi access all across the ship. You’ll also have access to news and info through a free PressReader app so you can keep up with the world. If you so choose.
  • EXCURSIONS 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.
  • GYM & SPA

Dining / Food on The B

    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, our chef’s would be happy to accommodate. It’s all about you, remember?

    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, we’ve got you covered. Our 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, flavorful and made just for U. That’s how we do it.

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

Entertainment on The B

    ROOFTOP LOUNGIN' 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.

    SILENT DISCO If you’ve never been, now is the time. Our 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.

    FESTIVALS Go where the action is. Timing is everything, so we’ve planned several of our cruises around major cultural events, world festivals and other exciting happenings.
