The cruise line on a mission to make river cruising cool enough for the younger folk, has officially set sail with U by Uniworld’s The B taking off from Paris over the weekend.

The first of two millennial-inspired vessels launched with a ship-full of special passengers ranging from celebrities, industry professionals, Instagrammers and… KarryOn!

YES, the team’s very own Shaun Busuttil is lucky enough to be on the first sailing RIGHT NOW as the only member of Australian travel trade media.

As part of the exclusive trip, KarryOn will take you onboard the recently renovated ship for a glimpse at some of the activities available such as yoga, silent disco, mixology classes and wine classes.

You’ll also get an idea of some of the land options through Shaun’s recounts of immersive excursions including a treasure hunt at the Louvre, secret tour of Versailles, a Paris City Roofs tour and more.

“It’s very exciting to see this vision come to life and to have such influential, well-travelled young people onboard to experience it for the first time.”
