Uniworld expands cruise and rail programme in 2022

Uniworld has added two itineraries to its cruise and rail programme for next year as it prepares to launch a new trade platform.

The luxury river line will offer three departures of a new 18-day Milan, Venice & Istanbul itinerary, which includes a northern Italy cruise on board La Venezia, in July and August 2022.

Also new is a 12-day Enchanting Danube & The Castles of Transylvania itinerary from Budapest to Bucharest, featuring a Danube cruise on Maria Theresa and rail journey in Romania.

Eight departures will run between March and October. An early-booking discount of 12% is available on both new cruise and rail itineraries for bookings made by March 31, 2021.

The third of Uniworld’s cruise and rail packages is a Milan, Venice & the Swiss Alps itinerary, which will operate this year and in 2022.

What to expect from cruise lines in 2021


All cruise and rail packages are run in partnership with Golden Eagle, operator of the Trans-Siberian Express.

Uniworld is to launch its Uniworld Support Hub this month. The trade platform will contain white-label digital brochures and content to help agents host virtual events to promote and sell Uniworld.

The hub will also feature a white-label letter, recommending Uniworld, that agents can tailor with their details and send to their customer databases.

Previously, sales assets were sent to agents via email. A range of 10-minute videos showcasing different destinations and rivers has been created and added to the hub.

Chris Townson, the line’s UK & Ireland managing director, said: “Agents can save these assets and utilise them in a more targeted way.”
