U by Uniworld Announces Asia Expansion After Inaugural Voyage

After the inaugural sailing of its first ship just last week, U by Uniworld has already announced plans for expansion. With two ships slated to sail in Europe beginning April 2018, the new river cruise line targeting Millennial travelers will set its sights on the Mekong River in Asia for a third ship, with plans for a fourth ship to be announced in the future.

The announcement comes soon after the cruise line’s first ship, The B, made its inaugural voyage along the Seine River following a renaming ceremony led by the ship’s “guardian angel,” Petra Nemcova, a prominent supermodel and philanthropist.

The B was renamed following extensive renovations and design changes to Uniworld’s River Baroness ship. The revamped ship has been redesigned with an all-matte black exterior with four suites, 26 balcony bedrooms, 29 studio bedrooms, and two studio bedrooms with triple occupancy- all with waterfront views.
