At the event, Managing Director Fiona Dalton revealed what to expect from Uniworld moving forward.Fiona Dalton, Managing Director for Uniworld AustraliaDalton spoke of Uniworld’s product elevation, starting in 2016 when the company introduced S.S. Joie de Vivre at a gala on the Seine in Paris. In the years since, Uniworld has revitalised their river cruise products, including U River Cruises and that division’s launch ship, The B in 2017 and The A in 2018. The revitalised S.S. Beatrice also premiered in Budapest last year.Just last month, Uniworld unveiled the transformation of the former River Royale, reborn as S.S. Bon Voyage. The S.S. Bon Voyage is the second ship in the fleet to be upgraded to Super Ship status, the first being The Sanctuary Yangtze Explorer in China, to be launched in the near future.But The Travel Corporation’s cruise division won’t be stopping anytime soon, with 2020 destined to be a huge year. Three brand new ships and another renovation will launch in 2020. Kick-starting the new year, Mekong Jewel will begin operation in Vietnam and Cambodia on 3 January, followed by the S.S. Sphinx in Egypt a day later on 4 January. S.S. Sao Gabriel will set sail in Portugal from 26 March as the newest ship on the Douro.

Google Maps is great at telling you how long it’ll be until your next train arrives, but currently offers no insight as to whether you’ll actually be able to comfortably fit on to it.Now the company is seemingly looking to rectify that with a little Waze-like crowdsourcing magic. Those who use the public transport routing feature are seeing notifications from Google asking them how crowed their train is.Android Police brings word from a tipster in Sweden who has spied the notifications on their Android device, while the company has also been testing the feature in a number of major cities (San Francisco, New York, Washington D.C., Tokyo and Paris at last count) on iPhone.The survey asks users to rate the space available on their trip, from there being many seats available, to just a few. They’re also being asked whether it’s standing room only, or crushed.Related: Best smartphoneIf the company offers the feature to more users, it will eventually enable Google to build up a picture of how busy that particular train is on any given day, which could help users determine whether to shoot for that particular mode of transport or leave earlier for a more comfortable commute.Image credit: Android PoliceThe company currently offers similar indicators for restaurants and attractions, stating how busy they tend to be at certain times of the day. Those are determined algorithmically through a number of data points.There’s no word yet on whether the company plans to bring the feature to the main app in the near future, but this might be something we hear more about at the Google I/O keynote on May 7, where the company will show us Android Q and the Pixel 3a range of smartphones.Would a busy train alert assist you with your morning commute?
