The new brand from Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection that offers authentic and adventurous cruises for 21-45-year-olds, selected Petra Nemcova, noted philanthropist and model, as brand’s ‘Guardian Angel.’ Petra Nemcova will join the invitation-only “Sneak Peek” U from Oct 7 to Oct 11, 2017.

According to President & CEO of Uniworld, Ellen Bettridge, the selection of a ‘Guardian Angel’ was simply another example of U’s status as game-changer. Ellen Bettridge added that Petra was an amazing representative of their new brand as she was smart, ambitious and had a kind, adventurous spirit. 

Ahead of its launch, U by Uniworld will support the Happy Hearts Fund, which is an organization founded by Petra Nemcova, following her harrowing experience during the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 to rebuild safe, resilient schools in regions impacted by natural disasters. 

U by Uniworld will start sailings in spring 2018 with 9 itineraries on the Seine, Main, Rhine and Danube Rivers, among 2 renovated ships with a capacity of up to 120 passengers.
