Uniworld was founded in 1976 in Los Angeles, California. In 2004 the cruise company was bought by the Tollman family, owners of The Travel Corporation. Beatrice Tollman started award-winning Red Carnation boutique hotels in South Africa, creating the first 5* hotel in Johannesburg. They now have 17 boutique hotels around the globe. When the Tollman’s moved into cruise holidays, they brought with them the same attention to detail and customer focused service they had created in their 5* hotels.
Each one of their luxury cruise ships is individually designed, and the elegant style reflects the care taken to create these opulent luxury ships. Bringing the five-star hotel experience to the waterways, Uniworld staff aim to make guests feel welcome and exceed expectations every time with unfaltering attention to detail. The Uniworld boutique river cruises offer a luxury all-inclusive cruise holiday.
Uniworld are dedicated to giving back to the environment and communities that make their cruise holidays possible. They partner with charities and organisations to ensure their river cruises, shore excursions and head office operations make as little impact as possible on the surroundings, while benefitting the local communities, donating to good local causes and working with small local businesses.
