  1. We got discounts for early booking and for paying ahead, as well as for the prior cruises we've taken with them. For us, it made sense, especially since the cruise we wanted (Douro on the new SS) was booking up quickly. At the time we booked at least, they were also offering a discount for early booking without paying ahead, but it was a lower discount than we received. Not sure what they're offering right now.
  2. Glad you had a great trip! We may have to look at that for our next one. We comparison shopped a bit among thee top lines when booking for 2020 and Uniworld was a better buy for us with all the discounts, and it was our preference to stick with a product we knew and loved. Welcome home!
  3. Thanks for the pics! Looks lovely!!
  4. Douro is next for us, with about a week pre-cruise in Lisbon and elsewhere in Portugal.
  5. I suspect it's also a matter of supply and demand. People are obviously willing to pay the higher prices, based on the number of fully booked ships I'm seeing.
  6. This was our thinking as well. We're still working out the details of what to do pre- and post-cruise, but have plenty of time to figure it out before November 2020. Really looking forward to seeing Uniworld's new Super Ship!
  7. I had the same question about Uniworld's 2021 offerings. I'm surprised they're not opening them up at this point since I'm seeing so much of 2020 booked up - at least on the Douro itineraries I was interested in. I'm also finding that river cruises in general seem to have gotten very pricey. I was shopping around a bit this time despite our repeated cruises with Uniworld but wasn't finding anything that made the switch an attractive enough option overall.
  8. Since it is non-transferable and not redeemable for cash, it would see that any residual value would be forfeited. Probably safest to call Uniworld, or better yet, review the detailed (written) terms of the policy. And in case you find the terms unacceptable or insufficient: "If you are not satisfied for any reason, you may cancel the travel insurance portion of your coverage within 10 days of purchase, if you have not departed on your trip or filed a claim. When so returned, all coverages under the policy are void from the beginning."
  9. If that is the question, seems pretty clear what the answer is: "The certificate is valid for two years, is nontransferable, nonrefundable and may not be redeemed for cash."
  10. You would have to read the detailed terms of the policy. However, medical issues should be covered under the normal terms of the policy. You’d have to check whether divorce is considered a covered condition, but I’d expect that would be one of those situations where you would get a voucher.
  11. Sounds terrific! Thank so much for the lovely pics as well!
  12. Thanks! So have we, and it looks beautiful!
  13. We read up on it a lot, and we're very independent travelers so we're planning to do Lisbon on our own. We also may extend the trip to the Algarve since that has been on our short list for a number of years.
