Why Go

Uniworld Boutique Cruises have been providing high-end river cruises in Europe for more than 40 years. With river cruises, your vacation isn’t about time spent on the ship, but instead the time you spend off of it: visit multiple European destinations with one home base. Although the elegance of Uniworld is so top-of-the-line, you may wish to spend more time enjoying the lush suites, lounges, attentive staff and delicious food. Kids 4 and older are welcome to join their parents on Uniworld Cruises, but the line created its Generations Cruise Collection specifically for families, with kid-friendly services and itineraries at every turn.

You will find Generations itineraries traveling along the Daube from Budapest to Prague, the fairytale Rhine from Basel to Amsterdam, Northern Italy gems from Milan to Venice, historic passage from Paris to Normandy and awe-inspiring Christmas Markets from Nuremberg to Frankfurt.

The best part of a Uniworld cruise is it is all-inclusive. Airport transfers, in-suite butler service, personalized excursions, all gratuities, Wi-Fi, bicycles and more.

What Kids Can Do

Two Family Hosts are available aboard each Generations sailing, one for ages 4 to 12 and one for teens, ages 13 to 17. Besides offering activities on board, the hosts also provide kid-only tours in port, as well as hands-on workshops tailored to the destinations you visit. All kids receive a ship tour and chance to meet the Captain.

Cabins for Families

The average capacity for Uniworld cruises is 130 guests, with a high staff-to-guest ratio. Cabins on the Upper Deck houses suites starting over 200 square feet and outfitted with full balconies. The Lower and Main Decks have smaller rooms, about 161 square feet, with the Main Deck rooms featuring a French balcony. Families often elect to book two rooms on their cruises to have more space.

Dining for Kids

Kid-friendly menus include child-size portions of the meals adults may be enjoying, all of which are gourmet. Attempting to integrate guests into the culture of the ports, the meals feature traditional specialties of the region. Unlimited beverages are available to all guests, and kids can enjoy dessert-making courses with the ships’ pastry chefs.
