Younger Travelers Take to Cruising

Millennials are sailing more.

Recent industry surveys found that 85 percent of people between ages 18 and 34 have more interest in cruise travel – particularly in small ship and river cruising – compared to one year ago, and they are cruising more often than Gen Xers (35-50) or baby boomers (50-68), too.

Cruise lines have responded with amenities such as surf and skydiving simulators and improved Wi-Fi.

Then there’s U by Uniworld, which aims its river cruises at travelers ages 21 to 45.

Sailing along Europe’s waterways, U by Uniworld combines sleek design with onboard experiences like drink mixology classes and silent disco parties. Excursions include bicycle and kayaking trips.
