“Our first year was all about disrupting the industry—quite literally ‘testing the waters’ as we debuted a never before seen product, receiving awards and rave reviews from guests, travel partners and media alike” said Ellen Bettridge, president and CEO of Uniworld in press materials. “Entering into our second season, we’re following the ever-evolving consumer trends and listening to feedback from guests as we seek new ways to push the limit on the river cruise experience from the launch of a brand new itinerary to enhanced excursions to new onboard activities.”
In addition to the U’s popular inclusions such as silent discos, paint and wine, and sunrise rooftop yoga, guests will also be able to take part in onboard activities such as rooftop BBQs, karaoke nights, giant board games, themed parties and more.
