Uniworld, the boutique luxury river cruise line, has launched a new package aimed at attractive groups of family and friends.
Encouraging people to river cruise, the package, known as ‘Friends Reunited’, will offer an ‘unbeatable’ value for groups of 10 or more people travelling together.
The package is applicable to a wide range of sailings in 2021, including departures on the Danube, Rhine, Seine, Po and cruises in Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Venetian Lagoon.
Further afield, the package will also apply to sailings on the Volga, Mekong, Ganges and Nile – as well as on its 2021 Christmas Market cruises on the Danube, Rhine and Seine.
The key benefit of the package is a reduced cruise fare, with extra savings of between £400 and £800 per guest (depending on itinerary and date).
For every 10 guests travelling in Europe, one person will also sail and travel for free (including air and rail travel).
For the line’s ‘Exotics programme’ (the Nile, Mekong and Ganges), one person will sail for free – cruise only.
Three reduced single supplements offering 25 per cent off the usual single supplement are also up for grabs.
Finally, each guest will receive £100 in credit to spend on board the ship, on facilities such as the spa and shop.
MD of Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, Chris Townson, said:
“More than ever, we are all appreciating that what matters most is treasured time with friends and family, having been isolated from each other for so long.
“We’re getting feedback from our key partners that there is increased demand from guests planning to spend quality time travelling as a blended group of friends or with extended family, often two or more generations.
“On the back of this emerging trend, we’ve launched our new Friends Reunited package offering fantastic prices which will make it easier and better value than ever for larger groups to cruise with us.
“We’re also offering even bigger groups the opportunity to charter a Uniworld ship for themselves with a tailor-made programme – perfect for a once-in-a-lifetime event or milestone celebration!”
An example of cruises where the Friends Reunited package is applicable is an eight-day Venice and Gems of Northern Italy sailing on 20 August 2021.
Another sailing is a 12-day Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia and the Mekong sailing, running throughout the year.
