Second Place Prize Winner: Burgundy & Provence | Avignon to Lyon | 8 days onboard Uniworld’s NEW Super Ship, S.S. Catherine, for two is Sandra Kull, Accent Travel, Austin, TX.

Grand Prize winner Barbara Bennett had the following to say about winning Uniworld’s ‘A Portrait of Majestic France Boutique River Cruise’ prize: “I cannot believe I won this beautiful cruise! I was just so pleased to have three bookings for the Burgundy & Provence cruise next year on your new ship, the S.S. Catherine! My clients had sailed in late August this year, and couldn't say enough about Uniworld—the service, food, ambience, et al!  I knew they were booked on the best river cruise line, and their raves proved me right. I am positively THRILLED!” First Place winner Deniz T. from OVC was equally ecstatic to learn she won the  ‘Bordeaux, Vineyards, & Châteaux Boutique River Cruise’ prize: “I am very thrilled about winning the contest. My clients are always raving about Uniworld when they return from their trips and I finally get to experience that for myself. I’ll be able to bring that experience back with me to share with my clients in the hopes that this will lead to many more Uniworld bookings for the future.” And Sandra Kull, the Second Place winner of the ‘Burgundy & Provence Boutique River Cruise’ onboard the new S.S. Catherine said she was “over the moon” when learning she won the cruise.

Guy Young, president of Uniworld, stated, “I am delighted to hear the responses from the agents who won the France prizes. I really appreciate hearing how satisfied their clients are with Uniworld, as our goal is to provide the absolute best river cruise experience possible.”
