Uniworld Updates Agent Training Program

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is marking the 2018 Wave Season with significant changes and enhancements to its comprehensive agent training program, Uniworld University, along with additional perks for agents who become certified Uniworld specialists.

Changes to the refreshed program include the addition of new images and video content, as well as insight on the rivers and exclusive excursions from the Uniworld Product Team. Uniworld University also features a revamped course on U by Uniworld, the brand’s new river cruise product exclusively for cruisers ages 21-45. The course includes information about U by Uniworld, which is set to debut in April 2018, plus tips on how to introduce river cruising to a new generation of travelers.

In addition, the 2018 platform features courses on the S.S. Beatrice, Uniworld’s newest super ship; the new Remarkable Rhine itinerary; and details on Uniworld’s themed cruises: Connoisseur Collection, Generations, Jewish Heritage and Holiday Season.

To become a Uniworld River Cruise Specialist, agents must complete three courses including the Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection Agent Training, which presents  general overview of the cruise line; the course on U by Uniworld; and the 2018 update course. Upon completion of all three, agents become eligible for travel agent rates up to 70 percent off the published fares for Uniworld and U by Uniworld. They will also receive a badge that they can display in their e-mail signature or personal marketing materials. The Uniworld River Cruise Specialist program is accredited by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA).
