U by Uniworld launch
THE new youth river cruising brand from Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, U by Uniworld, celebrated its official Australian launch last week at an event in Sydney.
A mix of 130 trade, media and content creators celebrated the occasion in style at a swish function at Bar Machiavelli in Rushcutters Bay.
Guests were able to sample the destinations the new brand will visit, by tucking into a French dessert bar, a cheese table inspired by the Netherlands and a pretzel station representing Germany.
Speaking to Cruise Weekly, local md of U by Uniworld Fiona Dalton said the company had received a lot of interest in charters, hinting some may be in the works, in addition to the Hunter Travel Group charter revealed last month ( CW 17 Aug).
“There’s never been a better time to consider a charter than right now because for those who are keen or courageous to be an early adopter, they’ll be rewarded with very competitive pricing and an opportunity to be at the forefront of something that is very new.”
“We may well be having a very different conversation in 12 months’ time once U by Uniworld is launched and it’s popular and we’ve got limited inventory,” Dalton added.
