There is plenty of fun to be had onshore, but your time onboard will be just as exciting. Our lineup of daily activities and events were all created with U in mind.

  • Paint And Wine

On days we’re docked in a picture-perfect location, head to the top deck for a painting class and create your very own masterpiece. You bring your artistic side. We’ll bring the wine and supplies.

  • Mixology Class

What’s the secret for getting the smoke-infused flavor into your smoky bourbon cocktail? Our master bartenders will show you.

  • Chef’s Cooking Classes

Join our Chef as he takes you through a multi-course cooking class. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labor. Or the appetizers, entrees and desserts

  • Silent Disco

If you’ve never been, now is the time. Our resident DJ runs the party and everyone wears headphones in sync with the music. But just take them off to chat with your friends. It’s sophistication meets party jams.

  • Stay Connected

A week without Wifi sounds terrifying and we’d never do that to you. Onboard, you’ll enjoy complimentary Wifi access all across the ship. You’ll also have access to news and info through a free PressReader app so you can keep up with the world. If you so choose.

  • Yoga

Find your center with a complimentary morning top-deck yoga session, led by the ship’s wellness coach. The views are sure to help with the meditation.


It is hungry just thinking about it.

To travel is to eat, and you will eat well on your cruise with U. Culture is often experienced through taste, and with that in mind, many of your onboard meals will be inspired by the local fare of the cities you’ll visit, made from ingredients that were sourced just miles down the road. Hungry for something a little closer to home? You’ll have classic options, comfort food choices and plenty of vegan, vegetarian and various healthy dining choices as well. And if you have any special dietary needs, our chef’s would be happy to accommodate. It’s all about you, remember?

  • Onboard Dining

When onboard, you’ll have two meals a day included, based on the daily schedule. You can anticipate a creative modern dining experience, with many organic, vegetarian and healthy culinary options. But if you’re craving a slightly less healthy juicy burger with bacon jam, goat cheese and a fresh side of fries, we’ve got you covered.

Our master chefs aim to bring a taste of your destinations onboard, using locally sourced ingredients. Local street food, like German Käsekreiner, will be served whenever possible. Fresh, flavorful and made just for U. That’s how we do it.

  • Foodie Favorites

Build your own pizza with fresh local toppings.

Homemade granola with fresh-pressed juices.

Street food-inspired Currywurst in Germany.

Sucklin pig pickin’ bucket.

Comfort food from celebrity cookbook author Bea Tollman.

  • Why Limit To An Hour?

All of the water, tea and coffee you can drink is included. Are you feeling it? And if that isn’t enough, you can hit one of two onboard bars for a local craft beer, glass of wine, or your favorite cocktail or specialty coffee. Sip, sip, no worries.

  • Eat Like A Local

With VizEat partnership, you can taste the city and share a meal in the home of a U Host. It’s authentic home cooking meets immersive travel.


Step off the ship, and into the great wide open.

At every stop along your U journey, you’re always just one choice away from yet another exciting adventure. Each day on U, you’re given the option to explore in one of three ways—included excursions and activities, optional U Time outings or a self-guided tour of your cities.

  • Included Excursions

Look through each of our four itineraries to discover all of the adventures and tours that come complimentary, ranging from an evening bike ride along the Danube (or a daytime bike ride in Frankfurt with our U bikes that are available for your use), a “Midnight in Paris” evening stroll, a canal cruise in Amsterdam, vineyard hikes, castle visits, and much more.

  • Travel Your Way

Our complimentary transfers will take you into town whenever you like. Plan out your day down to the T or head out with no set schedule in mind and see where life takes you.

  • Let’s Talk About U Time.

Our itineraries are chock full of U Time—specially planned additional excursions, events and activities created by our destination experts with you in mind. Most days, you’ll have several U Time optionals to choose from, in between your included excursions. Some are relaxed and low key while others are for the high-energy crowd. But all are designed for you to experience the places you visit in authentic local fashion. And with the added benefits of the best prices, transportation to and from the ship and the backing of our staff to ensure your cruise is exactly the way you’d like it to be, you can’t go wrong.

  • A Mixologist’s Dreamamsterdam, The Netherlands

Smack dab in the heart of Amsterdam, the House of Bols is the world’s largest hands-on cocktail exhibit. Its Cocktail & Genever Experience chronicles the history of this traditional Dutch liquor, lets you discover your favorite flavor in the Hall of Taste, meet with the Master Distiller and create your own custom cocktails.

  • A Classical Eveningvienna, Austria

In Vienna, classical music is king, and this must-do U Time outing takes you to Klosterneuburg Abbey for an exclusive evening performance of Mozart and Strauss by a high profile chamber orchestra and bel canto opera singers. Afterwards, you can join the performers for conversation and bubbly in the courtyard outside under the stars.

  • Belleville Street Art Walkparis, France

Art takes on many forms, and this tour showcases the creativity you won’t find in museums. Your guide will lead you on a walking tour around Paris’ socially and ethnically diverse neighborhoods for a look into its thriving street art culture. Look to spot works by Shepard Fairey, Invader, C215, Vhils and more.

  • Bamberg By Boatbamberg, Germany

Go from the ship to a boat, and paddle or kayak down the Main and Pegnitz rivers through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bamberg, Germany. Spend an afternoon on the water, soak in the sunshine and experience Bamberg from a vantage point that most visitors don’t get to enjoy.


Go where the action is.

Timing is everything, so we’ve planned several of our cruises around major cultural events, world festivals and other exciting happenings. Like these.

  • Kick Back And Jazz Things Up A Little.Paris Jazz Festival

Between June and July, Parc Floral de Vincennes transforms into a relaxing outdoor venue for a month of jazz performances. Each weekend features a different concert amidst the blooming flowers and greenhouses of the botanical garden. Bring a blanket and a bottle of wine and let the sweet sounds of summer transport you to your happy place.

  • Cruise To The Biggest Beer Festival In The World.Oktoberfest

If there is one thing we love more than cultural world festivals, it’s cultural world festivals that are all about beer. Come September and into October, our Frankfurt to Regensburg itinerary is your ticket to attending this folk festival, which entertains 6 million beer-loving visitors from all around the world each year.

  • They Call It Eurowoodstock, And It Lives Up To The Name.The Sziget Festival

Held on Óbudai-sziget — a.k.a. Old Buda island, a 266-acre strip of land in the middle of the Danube River — the Sziget Festival is one of the largest music festivals on the planet. From August 6-13, hundreds of bands, artists and DJs will take to the stage to entertain a crowd of nearly half a million hard-core music fans. And you can be there, too.

  • A Full-Day Celebration Fit For A King.King’s Day

Observed on April 27, Koningsdag, or King’s Day, is a massive open-air festival, honoring the King of The Netherlands’ birthday. We’ll be in Haarlem the day of, one of the best spots to revel in the festivities. Spend the day exploring the many stalls set up in Grote Markt Square, selling everything from food to clothing. If you’re in the midst of thousands of party-goers decked out in their finest orange attire, you know you’re in the right place.


A river cruise with U is an effortless way to travel from city to city across Europe, completely tailored to your personal tastes. You book, you get excited, and we take care of just about everything else. Along the way, you’ll discover awe-inspiring scenes, inspirational moments, and pics so pretty, your Facebook friends will be just a little bit envious.

  • Cities Selected Just For You

Our itineraries take you to some of the most dynamic, inspiring and just plain fun cities in Europe. Some you’ll be familiar with. Others, you’ll be introduced to for the first time. But each has its own unique flair and way of life that’s waiting to be discovered.
