This Week in Cruise: New Itineraries, Agent Tools From River Lines

From new itineraries and land extensions to new tools for travel agents, it’s been a busy week in river cruise news.

This week Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection released a number of updates to its travel agent booking tool. These include a new waitlist function that will allow agents to add their clients to a waitlist on select sold-out cruises, for a deposit. Other new enhancements include expanded promo code functionality and messaging, a clearer “savings breakdown,” simplified invoice sending options and a new booking status display.

In itinerary news, this week CroisiEurope released details on a new, seven-day Rhone River route making its debut for the line in 2019. Sailing roundtrip from Lyon onboard the MS Rhone Princess, the new itinerary will focus on the region’s food and wine, with stops in Arles, Avignon, Viviers and Tain L’Hermitage.

Finally, this week Riviera River Cruises released its 2019 brochure, which includes a number of new options for travelers. The company has added a new train extension into the Swiss Alps, a new, smaller class of ship and expanded departures aimed exclusively at solo travelers.
