Travel consultants in the U.S. and Canada can now indulge travelers with a world-class, all-inclusive experience with the world’s most luxurious boutique river cruise operator, Uniworld, via Sabre Corporation’s travel marketplace. The Global Distribution System (GDS) connectivity provides agents with the full inventory of Uniworld’s fleet of beautifully designed ships via Sabre Cruises, an intuitive booking capability within the Sabre Red platform.

To create exceptional experiences for families or solo travelers, Sabre-connected agents now have the ability to shop and book Uniworld’s cruises within a graphical-rich reservation workflow. Agents will also have access to book travelers on Uniworld’s new S.S. Joie de Vivre, launching in March 2017. In addition to displaying commissions’ information as well as negotiated and group rates, the Sabre Cruises interface allows agents to compare different experiences and ships based on Uniworld’s destinations to Europe, Asia, Egypt and India.

The collaboration with Sabre will expand Uniworld’s commercial strategy, leveraging Application Programming Interface (API) technology through Sabre Cruises Web Services, allowing Uniworld to extend their product offering and reach to agencies that cater to travelers through their own online sales sites.

“With the addition of Uniworld’s luxurious all-inclusive products to Sabre Cruises, we continue to enrich our comprehensive inventory and deliver more choice for travel agents in North America,” said Shelly Terry, Vice President of Travel Product Solutions, Sabre Travel Network. “Our platform and Cruise API’s will significantly increase the exposure of their collection of itineraries, ships, personalized services and fine amenities among an influential community of travel advisors.”

“We are excited to launch our strategic collaboration with Sabre, enabling us to reach the largest travel agency community in North America and a high-yield customer base,” said Ellen Bettridge, President & CEO of Uniworld. “The addition of Sabre further enhances Uniworld’s ability to create a seamless booking process for travelers and travel agents alike.”

Uniworld offers truly unparalleled itineraries through personalized programs, quality service and expertise, and a fleet of beautifully designed ships that fit the destinations to which they travel. Uniworld is not only dedicated to providing exceptional experiences for its passengers, but the company also works to create a seamless booking process for travelers and travel agents alike.
