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.

The ship has two rooftop venues, a spa, mixologists, international DJ’s, communal tables for dining, and a wide variety of cuisine, with dishes ranging from Bea Tollman’s spaghetti pomodor and U by Quinoa Burgers to miso marinated wild salmon and peanut butter bacon chocolate bars.

On the inaugural journey, guests enjoyed U’s many on-board experiences like yoga and camping on the top deck, a silent disco party, plus mixology, impressionist paint, and wine classes. Offshore, guests will experience unique excursions like a panoramic breakfast on a Gastronome bus, a treasure hunt at the Louvre, a secret tour of Versailles, a Paris City Roofs tour and more.
