Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection and U River Cruises are celebrating parent company The Travel Corporation’s 100thanniversary in 2020 by offering travelers the best savings on 2020 cruises. For new bookings between now through Feb. 29, guests will save up to 30 percent off select sailings across most itineraries and room categories.
“For 100 years, travel advisors have booked the companies of The Travel Corporation with supreme confidence and Uniworld and U are no exception. The tradition of excellence in hospitality established long ago by the Tollman family influences everything we do,” says Ellen Bettridge, president & CEO of Uniworld and U. “To honor that and celebrate with our loyal customers, we have created the 100th Anniversary Celebration savings to give our guests the opportunity to experience our new Super Ships, itineraries and immersive programming at the best value for 2020.”
For example, travelers can save on Uniworld’s newest itinerary for 2020, Rhine, Moselle & Blissful Baden-Baden, a 12-day trip from Germany’s spa town of Baden-Baden to Frankfurt from $3,499 (savings of $1,500 pp) and cruise through the Moselle and Rhine rivers to the country’s oldest and quaintest villages. This special savings is also applicable on the 10-day Gems of Northern Italy itinerary, which will sail on one of Uniworld’s newest Super Ships set to debut in 2020, the S.S. La Venezia, and will overnight on the Venetian island Burano, a first for any cruise line. Additionally, U’s four new and updated itineraries are included in this offer: Amsterdam & Brussels Bound, Vienna Vibe, Rolling on the Rhine and Eastern Europe Escape from $2,099 (savings of $900 pp). These 7-night itineraries visit hot European destinations like Amsterdam, Vienna, Brussels, Cologne and Belgrade, with even more overnight stays, complimentary happy hours, locally sourced meals, dedicated local U hosts, and more.
Included in the 100th Anniversary Celebration are all of Uniworld’s standard inclusions such as in-suite butler service, Asprey bathroom amenities, unlimited distinctive wines, regional beers and premium spirits, all meals onboard, ship-wide internet and WiFi, bicycles for use on shore, expertly planned shore excursions, all gratuities and airport transfers.
To support this special event, Uniworld and U’s sales team has implemented an initiative called “Keeping it 100” to ensure that trade partners are educated on the newest and most relevant updates to selling Uniworld and U River Cruises for 2020. During this initiative, 100 select agencies throughout America will be visited from November through February per week by the entire field sales team, and in the end Uniworld and U’s sales team will have physically visited 1,200 agency locations.
“Travel advisors are our most trusted partners and an extension of our team,” says Kristian Anderson, Uniworld’s executive v.p. of global sales. “By educating our valued partners through direct one-on-one engagement, our shared potential for success is unlimited.”
