Uniworld River Cruises - Destinations

Uniworld Ships sail to Europe, Russia, Ukraine & the Black Sea, China, and Egypt.

  • Europe Discover the unique scenic treasures of Europe from the luxurious serenity of your river cruise ship. Sailing Europe’s glorious rivers—the Danube, Main, Rhine, Moselle, Rhone, Saone, Seine, and Douro—you will discover the heart of Europe’s charming waterside villages and exciting cultural centers in the most relaxing way to vacation.
  • China From the majestic Himalayan Mountains to the mighty Yangtze River, the land is broad and diverse. It is a country of old and new cities, earthly and ethereal landscapes, and impressive historical sights. The vastness and profoundness of this great land can’t be fully explained with words. It needs to be experienced first hand.
  • Ukraine, Istanbul & the Black Sea Explore the rich heritage of Ukraine and the Black Sea and immerse your senses in the exotic ambience of Istanbul. It’s a captivating odyssey off the beaten path that you’ll never forget.
  • Russia Discover the soul of Russia along the shores of the Volga. Follow the path Peter the Great took and sail from Moscow to St. Petersburg. Experience these legendary cities rich in culture, tradition and royalty. And as you travel along the river, discover another side of Russia with its remote forested islands, vast lakes, tiny summer houses, quaint lifestyles and pastoral landscapes.
  • Egypt "Egypt is the gift of the Nile." From the cities to rural villages, where life goes on as it did thousands of years ago, a cruise along the Nile is like watching 5,000 years of culture unfold before your eyes. Marvel at the contrasts as you sail past simple villages surrounded by luxuriant palm groves, fertile plantations, romantic desert hills, lush oases, modern cities and ancient colonnaded temples and pyramids.
