U by Uniworld is hosting two themed cruises – featuring celebrity drag queens and star tattoo artists – onboard its The A river ship in Germany this summer.

The new tailored itineraries – Tattoo on U and U in Drag – are both versions of the eight-day Germany’s Finest itinerary that sails from Frankfurt to Regensburg.

The U in Drag sailing is on July 6, while Tattoo on U departs on August 17.

Celebrity drag queens who will be onboard include Jiggly Caliente, Darienne Lake and Phi Phi O’hara as seen on RuPaul’s Drag Race, a US reality show which pits contestants against each other as judges select America’s next drag superstar.

Celebrity tattoo artists including Steven Tefft, winner of US show Ink Master; Reese Hilburn, from programme Tattoo Nightmares Miami; and Bobby Moss and his wife and model Heather Moss will be on the sailing.

The itinerary includes a welcome party with the artists, a tattoo parlour crawl in one of the ports, and a brunch question and answer session.

Prices for the themed cruises lead in at £2,499.
