EXCURSIONS.Step off the ship, and into the great wide open.

At every stop along your U journey, you’re always just one choice away from yet another exciting adventure. Each day on U, you’re given the option to explore in one of three ways—included excursions and activities, optional U Time outings or a self-guided tour of your cities.

Included Excursions

Look through each of our four itineraries to discover all of the adventures and tours that come complimentary, ranging from an evening bike ride along the Danube (or a daytime bike ride in Frankfurt with our U bikes that are available for your use), a “Midnight in Paris” evening stroll, a canal cruise in Amsterdam, vineyard hikes, castle visits, and much more.

Travel Your Way

Our complimentary transfers will take you into town whenever you like. Plan out your day down to the T or head out with no set schedule in mind and see where life takes you.

Let's talk about u time.

Our itineraries are chock full of U Time—specially planned additional excursions, events and activities created by our destination experts with you in mind. Most days, you’ll have several U Time optionals to choose from, in between your included excursions. Some are relaxed and low key while others are for the high-energy crowd. But all are designed for you to experience the places you visit in authentic local fashion. And with the added benefits of the best prices, transportation to and from the ship and the backing of our staff to ensure your cruise is exactly the way you’d like it to be, you can’t go wrong.
