R Family Vacations
Uniworld has partnered with R Family Vacations since 2017. We are delighted to work with R Family, a pioneer in creating inclusive and safe travel options for LGBTQ+ families and their friends. R Family hosted charters include special curated experiences, such as group dinners, onboard entertainers, cocktail parties and excursions led by co-founders Gregg Kaminsky and Kelli Carpenter. See Kelli's blog post, "Why I Love River Cruising," for more insight about the R Family river cruising experience with Uniworld.
OUT in Venice
In 2022, R Family Vacations will be hosting "OUT in Venice" on the S.S. La Venezia, featuring LGBTQ+ entertainers, theme nights, dance parties and more—in addition to the extensive list of high-end amenities provided on all Uniworld cruises. "OUT in Venice" will take place on the May 1, 2022 sailing of Venice & the Gems of Northern Italy.
Part of an ongoing effort to provide welcoming experiences for everyone, Uniworld’s sensitivity training takes care to ensure that our personalized service approach is responsive to the LGBTQ+ community. In the Spring of 2017, Uniworld kicked off a series of LGBTQ+ training sessions for our onboard staff and training team in partnership with ManAboutWorld co-founders Billy Kolber and Ed Salvato.
The Travel Corporation is a proud member of The International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association, whose mission is to provide information and resources for LGBTQ+ travelers and expand LGBTQ+ tourism globally. This membership means that travelers can expect welcoming and inclusive accommodations with Uniworld and every other brand in the TTC family.
