Remember the exciting new youth rivercruise product that hit the market recently? Well they threw one heck of a party last night to celebrate the launch.
And of course Travel Weekly’s got all the inside scoop and pics from the evening.
With a ‘taste of Europe’ theme and a setting of Bar Machiavelli in Rushcutters Bay Sydney, Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection kicked off its official Australian launch in style.
A black carpet to represent the sleek black ships was rolled out as 130 guests were welcomed with a Night Owl lavender based cocktail and joined Managing Director, Fiona Dalton in anticipation for the exclusive event.
Uniworld’s Global CEO, Ellen Bettridge, also made an appearance in a special video to welcome Australian travellers onboard The A and The B.
The launch also coincided with U by Uniworld’s special preview cruise in six weeks, where Petra Nemcova, philanthropist, founder of Happy Heart Fund and Victoria’s Secret Angel will act as The B’s Guardian Angel.
The ships are set to sail in April 14, 2018.
Dalton said, “What makes U by Uniworld so exciting is that we are the first cruise line in the world, and certainly the first in river cruising to design and offer cruises specifically for the 21 – 45 year old age group.
“Some have called it revolutionary, others a game-changer but whichever way you look at it, what we’re doing is new, innovative and offers a completely new take on experiential travel!”
A mix of trade partners, travel agents, lifestyle media and Australia’s best content creators plus media personalities such as Jordan and Zac Stenmark, Tim Robards, Melissa Hoyer, Lincoln Younes and Matt Doran, enjoyed the festivities.
The guests were transported to Europe with a luxurious French dessert filled bar to represent The Seine Experience; an extravagant cheese table inspired by the Netherlands and Rolling on the Rhine; and Germany’s Finest with a pretzel station.
The finishing touch was with a live illustrator personalising travel quotes for the party as guests enjoyed tunes by DJ Alice Quiddington.
For you’re here for the pics, aren’t you – we know you! Ok, check out the cool kids from last night’s party:
