About Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection
Award-winning Uniworld - the world's ONLY authentic boutique cruise lineÂ - offers itineraries in spectacular destinations throughout Europe, Russia, Egypt, and Asia.

The Highest Standards in Luxury River Cruising
In 2004, Uniworld was acquired by The Travel Corporation (TTC), a highly successful international travel group founded by Stanley Tollman. TTC has more than 30 top brands, including Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, and Contiki, as well as Red Carnation Hotels, a renowned collection of four- and five-star luxury properties.
TTC has made major investments in Uniworld's ships, crew, and staff, with an eye towards providing guests with all the elements of an unforgettable Six-Star Experience: Expertise; Service; Luxurious Ships, Uniquely Designed; Culinary; Choice; and Truly All-Inclusive. Combining the tour planning and hotel management expertise of TTC's sister companies with Uniworld's decades of superior nautical experience has created an entirely new category of luxury river cruising.
The Boutique Experience, Onboard & Onshore
Boutique hotels are known for their destination-specific interior decor, gracious service, and carefully selected amenities, all of which provide an intimate, elegant, and relaxed experience. Similarly, Uniworld's boutique river cruises allow guests to travel from one exciting destination to the next aboard a stylish floating hotel with inviting lounges, cozy libraries, panoramic restaurants, sumptuous cuisine, exquisite antiques and original art, and luxurious riverview staterooms and suites. Meticulous attention to detail is readily apparent on every company-owned ship, including Uniworld's four stunning Super Ships - the S.S. Antoinette, S.S. Catherine, S.S. Maria Theresa, and the S.S. Joie de Vivre, S.S. Maria Theresa and the S.S. Bon Voyage (debuting 2019).
Gracious and Attentive Service
In partnership with its sister company, Red Carnation Hotels, Uniworld takes pride in its long-lasting relationships with guests, for whom there is "No request too large, no detail too small." Uniworld employs a professionally trained, dedicated, English-speaking staff, so guests never have to worry about communication.
