Learn something new during your cruise with signature lectures onboard covering topics such as - Life and Art in the Golden Age of the Lowlands; Man Danube Canal: History of an engineering milestone; Russian Civilisation and History; The Sound of Christmas Music from Silent Night to Christmas Oratorio; and many more.

Cruise with a community conscience

With a mission statement that promises to passionately deliver unique and luxurious river cruises whilst respecting the communities of the destinations they visit, you know you can relax with this attentive and conscientious cruise line. Uniworld look to enhance the communities in which they live, work and play; and this is evident through their charity work and partnerships.

Materials no longer in use on Uniworld ships are donated to the Future of Khmer Children Charity, whilst an initiative born from Uniworld and the Travel Corporation known as the TreadRight Foundation encourages the sustainable development of tourism to benefit local cultures and communities.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
