Uniworld knows just how important Travel Agents are, so the luxury river cruise line will be rewarding you with a generous $500 booking bonus for every single passenger booked before 31 March.

Uniworld’s Global CEO Ellen Bettridge spoke to Karryon during her visit to Australia this week to share the big news.

She said the huge booking bonus was also a way of including Agents in The Travel Corporation’s 100th anniversary celebrations.

Ellen informed us that this massive booking incentive is uncapped. So there is no limit to potential earnings.

Book 10 guests and receive $5,000 or book 20 and receive a value of $10,000.

On top of your attractive booking bonus, you can also entice your clients with up to 30% off on select 2020 departures.

Exciting 2021 offers

Ellen also shared some exciting news about special deals you can offer your clients when booking them on a 2021 river cruise.

• Economy flights free, or

• Business Class from $3,999 per person, or

• No flights but save $1,000pp on their cruise

These offers are combinable with Uniworld’s River Heritage Club loyalty benefits, as well as available early payment discounts until 14 March.

A new luxury train journey

In more exciting news from the luxury line, Ellen revealed that Uniworld is launching a brand new luxury train journey available to guests as an extension on select sailings of the Venice & The Gems of Northern Italy itinerary.

“It’ll be such a different way for our guests to experience the destination,” Ellen said.

“Train travel is a trend where we are very much at the forefront and are thrilled to be using this opportunity to broaden Uniworld’s horizon’s and explore new destinations.”

Guests can now complete their voyage on the S.S. La Venezia and continue onboard the luxurious Golden Eagle Danube Express train, travelling from Venice to Zurich.

The extension includes three nights onboard the Golden Eagle Danube Express and one night accommodation in Zurich on arrival.

New 2021 Itineraries


For 2021, Uniworld is adding two new itineraries.

The 8-day Classic Germany & Amsterdam aboard the River Princess, cruises along the Main River from Amsterdam to Nuremberg (and reverse on some departures), taking in the best of the serene villages, renaissance architecture and medieval towns.

Uniworld has combined this new itinerary with its popular Authentic Danube to create a new grand itinerary, the 15-day Rhine, Maine & Danube Discovery.

From Amsterdam all the way to Vienna, this itinerary cruises along the scenic Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, appealing to guests looking for an in-depth exploration of Central Europe’s quaint villages, exquisite castles and colourful cities.


With the record launch of five new ships this year, Ellen commented that Uniworld’s ultimate goal was to “continue to elevate the brand”.

“We are the number one luxury river cruise line and we are constantly pushing forward”.
