Top News Uniworld Covid-proofs its ships with antiviral spray By TTG Asia / Posted on 21 October, 2020 14:30 Uniworld Boutique River Cruises has become the first river cruise company to employ antimicrobial coating across all its ships and properties under its sister brand Red Carnation Hotels. The US-based luxury river cruise line has contracted with Danish company CleanCoat A/S to adopt their ACT CleanCoat solution, which is renowned for its ability to render surfaces self-disinfecting after one application. Antimicrobial coating is the latest safety measure rolled out by Uniworld to woo back luxury cruisers According to Uniworld Boutique River Cruises CEO Ellen Bettridge, all ships will be sprayed with the antimicrobial coating that is invisible, odourless, non-toxic and most importantly, kills bacteria and viruses including the coronavirus family. Sustainable and environmentally friendly, the ACT CleanCoat solution consists of two components: ACT CleanCoat, an annually applied treatment that disinfects surfaces while purifying the air; as well as the use of ACT ECA (electro-chemically activated) Water, which provides the best possible conditions for ACT CleanCoat to maximise its disinfecting effect, while itself acting as a hospital grade disinfectant for regular use. The antimicrobial coating is in addition to Uniworld’s previously announced enhanced health and safety protocols, including health screenings, contactless payment, reserved seating when dining and other physical distancing measures.
