Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection enjoys the fruits of its labor as it sees the most successful charter sales year in the company’s history. Uniworld attributes its full ship charter’s YOY increase of 225 percent to the company’s qualified charters & incentives team and its recently enhanced offerings.

Uniworld and U provide thorough coordination from a qualified in-house charters & incentives team ready to assist with every detail of the travel experience. Each charter is completely customizable making light work of special menu curation, onboard entertainment and activities, private shore excursions and corporate branding opportunities.
