First Look: Uniworld S.S. Joie De Vivre

The Uniworld S.S. Joie De Vivre, starting in 2017

We've been talking about the rise of cruise holidays, including river cruising. So it's timely that we receive news of a brand new ship to meet that demand.

She's called the S.S. Joie De Vivre and it joins the fleet at Uniworld, the world's only authentic boutique cruise line.

With a name like that, the ship is designed to reflect the joy of living as it cruises the Seine River in northern France. She features 54 staterooms, two Royal Suites and eight Junior Suites, all with made-to-order Savoir of England beds and marble-lined bathrooms. Guests staying in suites also enjoy enhanced amenities and services, including professional butlers.

And of course every cruise is all-inclusive.

Her maiden season will be in 2017, with a selection of wonderful cruises taking you through the full majesty of France. Book by 31 Jan 2017 and save up to £1,800 per couple. Come and say bonjour to find out more.
