The cruising industry has had a tough time in 2020, and although people seem very keen to go back on the water, it would be normal for some concerns to linger. To alleviate fears sparked by close quarters, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises is offering completely private cruises on all of their ships, for journeys running from eight to 25 days, complete with customizable itineraries.

Uniworld is taking luxury cruising to the next level, allowing guests to rent out an entire ship. That also means being able to customize dining options and entertainment onboard, as well as the shore excursions when you dock. Their ships cruise all around the world, from the Danube in Europe to the Nile in Egypt and all the way to Russia, India, and even Peru.

The S.S. La Venezia, Uniworld’s newest “floating boutique hotel” that debuted this year to cruise northern Italy, starts at $333,900 to rent the whole ship. If you bring the maximum number of guests (126), however, that’s just $2,650 per person, which isn’t a bad deal at all. Basically, you’re purchasing a package group vacation, except the “group” isn’t just your immediate family — it’s over 100 of your closest friends and acquaintances.
