U, the millennial-centric brand from Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, announced today that it will sail two new themed cruises in 2019.

The sailings are Tattoo on U, which will give guests a chance to sail with celebrity tattoo artists, and U in Drag, a week-long celebration of drag culture. U in Drag will sail on July 6, 2019 and Tattoo on U will sail on Aug. 17, 2019.

Both sailings were driven by Uniworld’s desire to encourage “our guests to completely let go, be confidently themselves and meet new like-minded travelers along the way,” CEO and president Ellen Betteridge said in a statement.

For U in Drag, Uniworld is bringing celebrity drag queens Jiggly Caliente, Darienne Lake and Phi Phi O’hara, onboard, all from the TV-show RuPaul’s Drag Race. While Tattoo on U will see Steven Tefft, from the TV-show Ink Master; Reese Hilburn from Tattoo Nightmares Miami, and more all sail with guests.
