Uniworld to introduce SS Joie de Vivre to Seine cruising in 2017

In early 2017, Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection will introduce its new masterpiece, the one-of-a-kind Super Ship, SS Joie de Vivre, sailing along France’s historic Seine River.

“We are extremely proud to launch the SS Joie de Vivre in Northern France in March 2017,” said Guy Young, president, Uniworld.

“Uniworld was one of the very first river cruise companies to sail the rivers of France, and our parent company, The Travel Corporation, has been bringing travellers from all over the world to this amazing country for over 70 years as this has been one of our most popular destinations, so our commitment to France is unwavering.”

Aptly named, Uniworld’s new ship will reflect the French “joy of living” philosophy and their profound appreciation for food, wine, art and music.

Everything from the ship’s décor and design to farm-to-table cuisine and superb local wines will be on full display for guests to enjoy.

The design team from Uniworld’s sister company, Red Carnation Hotels, will once again bring their creative talents to the SS Joie de Vivre, designing another ship as majestic as the destination itself.

French inspired handcrafted furniture with rich fabrics, antiques, art, gilded and wrought-iron accents will blend in perfect harmony with modern-day conveniences.

The Joie de Vivre features two Royal Suites, eight Junior Suites, and 54 staterooms for a capacity of no more than 128 guests.

Each suite will be designed with its own signature style and feature enhanced amenities and services, including butlers trained to the same exacting standard as Buckingham Palace.

All suites and staterooms have custom-made-to-order Savoir of England beds with unique headboards of various designs and marble bathrooms in various colour-schemes.
