Category Overall Cabin Dining Entertainment Service
Average rating






Uniworld provides an intimate, small-ship ambience (average 136 guests), luxurious accommodation, fine artworks, discrete yet attentive service by stewards, gourmet dining, and outstanding on-shore excursions. All vessels are either new or refitted since 2010. Solo travelers can cruise at no additional expense on selected departure dates and itineraries. Family cruises run in holiday times, and on selected itineraries family-oriented activities are arranged. While all its vessels have the lavish Uniworld presentation and services, note that Queen and Royale elevator does not extend to the lowest deck. All suites have full butler service (to Buckingham Palace standard). The Line’s by-word is “No request too large, no detail too small.”
