“We have been partnering with The Travel Corporation’s family brands since 2017 and this year we are delighted to partner Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection to support the launch of their new super ship in Portugal,” says Miguel Moraes, global trade marketing rirector at Visit Portugal. “Our strategy is to promote all the regions of our diverse country that can be visited year-round. The luxury traveler is a key target for us as they have the propensity to stay for longer and spend more while on holiday in Portugal and this partnership with Uniworld allows us to meet this objective. We look forward to welcoming the S.S. São Gabriel in 2020 and the guests it will attract from the USA, Canada, UK and Australia.”
