Hygiene and Safety Protocols

Uniworld approaches every cruise with that same thorough diligence. Stringent security and sanitation protocols onboard our ships are nothing new to us. They not only remain top priorities but are being escalated as we face the current challenge. As more information is provided from Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) Uniworld will look to adopt their health and safety recommendations and continue to update for your added peace of mind.

SAFETY & SECURITY PROTOCOLS

  • All outside doors and access to the interior of the ships are locked when docked. Only registered guests can access the ship using a key card.
  • All guests and luggage are verified against the manifest at check-in.
  • Guests have 24/7 access to the front desk.
  • Key card scanners with facial recognition are utilized at the gangway.
  • Cameras are present at the entrance of the ship and in public areas, and are monitored by the reception staff.
  • Trained security staff are posted at the gangway 24 hours a day.
  • Ships are patrolled by trained staff 24/7.
  • All deliveries are thoroughly inspected before being brought onboard.

HEALTH & SANITATION PROTOCOLS

PLEASE NOTE: While Uniworld believes these protocols to be the appropriate steps in protecting the wellbeing of guests and crew, they will continue to evaluate and make changes if they are deemed to be ineffective or if they negatively impact the wellbeing of guests and crew. Uniworld is actively reviewing additional health and sanitation steps and will add them to these protocols upon approval.

GENERAL MEASURES:

  • All guests must complete a health screening prior to embarkation.

  • All coffee table books, magazines and brochures have been removed from public use. Guests will be able to access these reading materials via their complimentary PressReader app on their mobile devices.

Pamela

During COVID we were unsure about all the rules of the trip. Everything turned out OK. This cruise was above our expectations for itinerary, accommodations, food, and safety. Visiting southern France felt like being among friends. They appreciated us being there and we had an amazing time. This is our 5th trip with Uniworld and most of our fellow cruisers were also repeats.

WS
William

Uniworld continues to provide an exceptional level of service. The food and beverages were excellent. The included excursions were very well done with relatively small groups and very entertaining local guides. This was our 5th Uniworld cruise and we were so happy that they continue to offer the personal attention and quality that we have grown to expect. This itinerary had a nice balance of some daytime sailing and very interesting excursions.

MJ

Our Uniworld river cruise, Provence to Burgundy, was everything we expected and more. Their Masterpiece excursions are exceptional. We also loved not having to tip as it was included in our package.

DS
Doyle

This was our first experience using Affordable Tours. Treena, our agent, was most helpful and provided much guidance as we navigated our way through all the procedures and processes needed to travel overseas. Treena answered all our questions and was readily available and at our service. Excellent service and always very professional.
