U by Uniworld Debuts The Bachelor Cruise Package

U by Uniworld's ship The B as it sails along the Seine

U by Uniworld has announced the details on the river cruise line's “U Get The Rose” travel package that recreates moments from the episode of The Bachelor in France that aired on February 5. U by Uniworld’s ship, The B, served as the home for the remaining bachelorettes during that episode, marking the first time a cruise has ever been featured on the show.

Before the episode aired, Ellen Bettridge, U by Uniworld’s President and CEO, said the feature on the Bachelor would be a good chance for travel agents to see one of U by Uniworld’s ships for the first time, considering the river cruise brand has not yet launched. Sailings are slated to begin in the spring of 2018.

The "U Get The Rose" package, which mirrors some of the moments experienced in Paris on The Bachelor, will include a bottle of wine, romantic turn down service with rose petals, breakfast in bed, a romantic movie on the ship’s deck overlooking Paris; an evening experience for two at the Eiffel Tower, and an evening glamping under the stars on the top deck in a luxury tent for two. The package will be as a $150 per couple add-on to The Seine Experience itinerary.

Travel Industry Exchange

The #1 Industry Event for Specialization | Oct. 9-11, 2018

Travel Industry Exchange is the leading one-to-one event featuring a product-focused conference, networking and entertainment. Top agents vie for coveted hosted positions to leverage valuable supplier content that will help improve personal growth and increase overall sales.

Through the package and optional excursions as part of U’s itinerary along the Seine, guests can explore episode moments in Paris, including:

  • Midnight in Paris: Take an evening tour of the Eiffel Tower area, complete with views of the city and a light show that begins at the start of each hour.
  • Can-Can:  See the legendary Moulin Rouge Cabaret, known worldwide for its rich history and for its prominence in cinema.
  • Sail the Seine: While The B does sail the Seine as shown in the episode, U often recommends a smaller ship to cruise below the lower bridges of Paris, taking in destinations such as Notre Dame and Île St-Louis, a natural island that sits in the middle of the river.
  • The Latin Quarter: Explore Paris on foot and visit Paris’s Latin Quarter for a romantic walk down its streets, visiting its many cafés, bars, and shops.

Sailings on U will begin April 2018 with prices starting at $190 per person, per day, through a limited-time offer. Four eight-day itineraries – The Seine Experience, Rolling on the Rhine, Germany’s Finest and The Danube Flow – will sail along the Rhine, Main, Danube and Seine Rivers, with overnight stops and longer stays available in Paris, Vienna, Amsterdam and Budapest. U by Uniworld will also offer two five-day holiday itineraries – Dashing Through The Danube and A Merry Little Christmas Cruise – during the holiday season.
