U by Uniworld, first river cruise experience created exclusively for travelers 21 to 45 years old, will feature in an upcoming episode of ABC’s hit reality show 'The Bachelor.'

The Feb. 5 installment will showcase U by Uniworld’s ship, The B, as the home for the remaining women while in France as they continue their journey to find love with the newest bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr.

This marks the first time a cruise has ever been featured on the show, currently in its 22nd season. Viewers can follow along and join in on the conversation at @UbyUniworld during the episode via #TravelforU and #TheBachelor.

Six years ago, Luyendyk was in love and a day away from proposing to the woman of his dreams. And then, she broke his heart. After a tearful exit on Emily Maynard’s (now Emily Maynard Johnson) season of ABC’s 'The Bachelorette,' Luyendyk stepped away from the spotlight, retired from his career as a Formula 1 racer and shifted gears to become a real estate broker in Scottsdale, Arizona.

As the narrative goes, now Luyendyk, 36, is back and ready to race into America’s heart again when he returns for a second shot at love.

The 'U by Uniworld' episode will air 8 p.m. ET/PT Monday on ABC.
