U by Uniworld has confirmed that it’s sending The B to Central Europe in 2020 where it will sail with its sister ship, The A, to meet strong demand for young & young at heart cruising.

The announcement comes a year after U by Uniworld launched The B on the Seine, where it has operated dozens of cruises along the northeast of France with calls to Paris, Versailles, Normandy and more.

The B will move to Central Europe in 2020 in Central Europe where she will operate on itineraries from Brussels to Amsterdam and Amsterdam to Frankfurt, while her sister, The A, will sail from Nuremberg to Vienna and Vienna to Belgrade.


Complete 2020 details will be released in the coming weeks.

U by Uniworld’s President and Chief Executive, Ellen Bettridge, explained the decision to move The B as one that meets demand from cruisers to experience a new destination every day of their vacation.


“As we look forward, the demand is, overwhelmingly, pointing towards Central Europe, where guests can experience a new city – and sometimes a different country – each day, which simply isn’t feasible on the Seine.”

“And for a generation that may be new to the concept – that’s really the essence and beauty of river cruising,” she added.

In addition to U by Uniworld’s popular inclusions, such as mixology classes, silent discos, paint & wine, and sunrise rooftop yoga, guests will also enjoy onboard activities such as rooftop BBQs, karaoke nights, giant board games, themed parties and more. As an optional add-on, guests can camp on the rooftop, complete with a nightcap cocktail and breakfast picnic basket; experience a U Wine Talk; or purchase a romance package for a special occasion.
