U River Cruises (formerly U by Uniworld) has announced it’s relaunching its vessel The B in 2020 AND the cruise line unveils three new itineraries that’ll take cruisers to hot spots in Eastern Europe.

But first, the return of U River Cruises’ The B.

The ship will relaunch in April 2020 in Europe, where it’ll cruise on the Rhine between Amsterdam and Brussels.


One of the itineraries available on The B will include the Amsterdam & Brussels Bound sailing, which will explore new destinations Rotterdam, Middelburg, Ghent and Antwerp. During the cruise, travellers will enjoy special U River Cruise touches, such as a session with a master chocolatier in Brussels.

The ship will also be used on an updated Rolling on the Rhine itinerary, which will sail between Amsterdam and Frankfurt with stops in Hoorn, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Koblenz, and Rudesheim. It’ll feature new excursions, including the Crime Cruise, a nighttime crime and mystery night hosted by a local guide and police officer.


Meanwhile, The B‘s sister ship The A, will take on new itineraries in Vienna and Eastern Europe, such as the eight-day Vienna Vibe taking in Nuremberg, Regensburg, Passau, Linz, Melk, Krems and Vienna, as well as the Eastern Europe Escape covering lesser-known destinations including Bratislava, Budapest, Mohacs, Novi Sad, Vienna and Belgrade.

Whether cruising on The A or The B, every U River Cruises guest will enjoy overnight stays on each itinerary, three daily meals, complimentary wi-fi, complimentary happy hour every night and more active excursions.


“Eastern Europe is hot and we’re excited to offer three brand-new U itineraries in the region for 2020 as The B rejoins our fleet.”

Ellen Bettridge, U River Cruises President & Chief Executive

“We’ve also added in extra overnight stays to allow for a more in-depth exploration of the cities beyond just the highlights.”
