Millenials, we have some happy news for you. According to The Independent, the masterminds behind luxury cruise line U by Uniworld are set to launch the millennial-only cruise in April 2018.
Its website claims that the new experience will showcase “a fresh approach to cruising for 21-45 year olds.” Specialising in European river cruises, the trips will take you down the Seine in France, through the Rhine in Germany and down the Danube in Hungary.
According to Cruise Critic, the cruise will be debuting with two ships, both renovated with all-black exteriors, plush decor and rooftop lounges. Activities on board will include wine and painting classes, mixologist courses led by master bartenders and silent discos.
The cruise line has named assigned Victoria’s Secret model Petra Nemcova as “guardian angel” for the millennial adventure. “We’re making history with this concept, so rather than follow the traditional ‘Godmother’ path for each individual ship, we’re paving our own way forward,” shared Ellen Bettridge, president and CEO of parent company, Uniworld Boutique River Collection.
Adding, “Petra is an amazing representative of our new brand; she’s smart, ambitious and has a kind, adventurous spirit. As a former Victoria’s Secret model, Petra is, of course, well-versed as an Angel.” Designed to be “part boutique hotel, part yacht and part resort”, the cheapest cruises will set you back a hefty $1,000 for the week, whereas if you opt for the France trip, costs can be up to $2000 USD or more.
The costs are, however, notably more purse-friendly than Uniworld’s non-millennial cruises, some of which will set you back over 10,000 USD.
