There will be an allocation of 20 rooms per cruise on select itineraries on ships called The A and The B in April, May, August and October next year.
Uniworld mentioned that the places were not available via any other means apart from the U’s valued travel agent partner. It offered a stand-alone opportunity to its agents offering U Cruises to any customer interested in the product which was otherwise reserved exclusively for young professional market.

They want to provide the travel agents the best opportunities to experience the history-making river cruise but also meet the need of the diverse millennial generation.
