U by Uniworld, a river cruise line designed to appeal to younger travelers, is introducing a new itinerary in Northern France on The B, one of its two ships. 

Beginning April 21, The B will sail eight-day itineraries along the Seine River with stops in Paris, Vernon, Les Andelys, Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, Rouen and Caudebec-en-Caux. The itinerary will begin and end on Sundays. Guests will be able to spend a Friday and Saturday night in Paris. 

With 2019 marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day, U will take guests to the beaches of Normandy with a stop at the American Cemetery for a special memorial ceremony. 

Other excursions include following U's chef to Rouen's fresh local market to choose ingredients for dinner, climbing to the top of the Etretat's legendary cliffs, and tea time at Chateau du Champ de Bataille. 

Rates start at $1,999 per person, including accommodations, daily farm-to-ship meals, select offshore excursions, two dedicated hosts, onboard activities, and rooftop fitness classes.

In addition to the current onboard programs that include mixology classes, silent discos, paint and wine, drum circles, and sunrise rooftop yoga, U is adding rooftop BBQs, karaoke nights, giant board games, and themed parties. For an additional cost, guests can camp overnight on the rooftop.
