Millennials, a term used more often as an insult these days than a way of identifying people of a certain generation, are always indulging and never saving money. They go to brunch every weekend and buy avocado toast instead of buying houses. They think that something called Fyre Festival sounds like a good time. Clearly, people in their 20s and 30s are a prime target for dumb things that cost money.

Now a travel company is trying to convince young people (or those who are young at heart) to pay for an all-millennial cruise.

U by Uniworld is advertising it as the “first line geared toward millennial cruisers.” Cruises are notoriously stodgy affairs, filled with the retirement community crowd, but these 120-passenger capacity ships, described as boutique hotels on water, include craft coffee, rooftop lounges, yoga studios, nightclubs, and a “social atmosphere.” Destinations include only super-hip, river-accessible European cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, and Budapest. The age restrictions to board the ships—called the A and the B—are 21-45. Sounds amazing, right? You get to socialize only with people who are just like you. The cruise ships take off starting next April—hopefully the schedule won’t conflict with Coachella, or the cruise’s initial customers will have to make a tough decision.

If you’re really interested in this heavily curated and watered-down European travel experience, you can check out U by Uniworld’s website. The cruises range from $200-250 per day. Private suites in the Paris cruise, which travels along with Seine, cost more than $10K for a week-long trip.

Sure, it’s pricey, but Instagram likes last forever.
