Uniworld University, the agent training programme of Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, has launched its latest course detailing what Uniworld has in store for 2021.
Travel advisors will learn the specifics of Uniworld’s updates for 2021, including a new rail itinerary and more dates for the popular new Peruvian Amazon itineraries, as well as the new health and sanitation protocols that will go into effect as soon as Uniworld resumes cruising.
Highlights for 2021 include Uniworld’s partnership with The Golden Eagle Danube Express to launch Cruise and Rail itineraries, debuting July 30, 2021. The luxury train trip will complement a cruise on the revamped S.S. La Venezia. The itineraries include Milan, Venice and The Swiss Alps, and will have pre- and post-cruise options: two nights in Lugano and Lake Como that includes accommodations, tours, and all transportation.
Debuting on April 30, 2021, the Classic Germany & Amsterdam itinerary will sail for eight days from Amsterdam to Nuremberg on the River Princess. This itinerary will include active offshore excursions like a treetop hike at Steigerwald Nature Reserve in Bamberg, and a hike to Festund Marienberg, perched on a hilltop high above the city of Würzburg.
The Rhine, Main & Danube Discovery itinerary, a 15-day sailing from Amsterdam to Vienna on the River Princess, will debut April 30, 2021. Guests will cruise along the most scenic parts of the three rivers and take part in sampling local specialities, from crisp Rieslings to brandy spiked Rüdesheimer coffee. This will be a combination of the Authentic Danube and Classic Germany & Amsterdam itineraries.
Additional itineraries has been added for the recently launched Peruvian Amazon sailings for 2021, in response to high demand. On the 15-day Peruvian Amazon & Machu Picchu Exploration, guests will spend seven nights onboard the Aria Amazon, dine on five-star cuisine sourced fresh from the rainforest, and stay in one of just 16 suites onboard, each with floor-to-ceiling windows.
The completion of this 15-30 minute course is required for advisors to continue qualifying for Uniworld River Cruise Specialist benefits. After completing the course, graduates can enjoy special travel advisor rates discounted up to 60 per cent and a river cruise specialist email badge.
