Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has become the first river cruise line to offer complimentary access to PressReader for all guests onboard their company-owned ships in Europe.

As part of their ongoing focus on providing an incredibly personalized experience, Uniworld will now give their guests a choice of premium newspapers and magazines from all over the world.

PressReader is available on many major ocean cruise lines, but the partnership with Uniworld marks their first launch in the river cruise industry.

With PressReader, passengers can download full versions of their favorite titles onto their own laptops, tablets and smartphones. Available titles include The Guardian, USA Today, Vogue, GQ, Newsweek, Bloomberg Businessweek, Forbes, ELLE, The Globe & Mail, and thousands more.

“Uniworld is delighted to be the first river cruise line to offer PressReader, a wonderful way for our guests to access newspapers and magazines they wish to read on their devices,” states Guy Young, President of Uniworld.

“PressReader is the worldwide standard for digital reading in thousands of hotels, libraries, ocean cruise lines, restaurants and offices,” says PressReader Chief Commercial Officer Igor Smirnoff. “We’re happy to be partnering with Uniworld, precisely because we know that travelers today want a personalized experience and a home-away-from-home.”

Uniworld travelers simply need to download the PressReader app on their iOS, Android or Windows smartphone or tablet before departing. They’ll then have complimentary access to PressReader content once onboard and throughout the duration of their cruise.
