Uniworld Continues to Innovate in 2017 and Beyond!

Happy New Year! I have recently relocated myself and my family to Southern California and we are already enjoying the relaxed, healthy living that was promised. I am looking forward to hiking on the weekends with my husband, Jack and two daughters, to ensure we take full advantage of the fantastic weather. I am also looking forward to my first full year in my role and continuing in the successful track record of the company. Uniworld has been the innovator in the River Cruise Industry for 39 years and yes, 2018 will be our BIG 40! We are leading the way in the luxury river cruise segment and with the launch of our newest Super Ship, the S.S. Joie de Vivre, which will join the Uniworld fleet in Spring 2017 and to continue on with our legacy of innovation, we recently announced the launch of a new brand, “U” by Uniworld that will engage a new segment of customers. The team and I will be certainly be busy and I promise there will be even more to come. I wish you a healthy and peaceful 2017!

Our newest Super Ship, the S.S. Joie de Vivre “The Joy of Living”—joins the Uniworld fleet in Spring 2017, serving the newly enhanced eight-day Paris & Normandy itinerary on the Seine. Guests will take a journey back to mid-20th Century Paris, the inspiration for the most gorgeous floating boutique hotel in France. In the words of Toni Tollman, the designer behind the ship’s stunning décor, "The Joie de Vivre will be like nothing we have done before." Highlights include a wine bar for private dining and wine-pairing dinners; Le Club L’Esprit - an area dedicated to health and well-being; and an enclosed swimming pool that can transform into a dance floor or outdoor movie venue. The ship will make its grand debut at a star-studded christening ceremony (with a yet-to-be announced celebrity godmother) in Paris on March 27, 2017, followed by an inaugural sailing from March 28 to April 2.

Recently, we announced our latest addition, “U” by Uniworld, set to launch sales in February 2017 and begin sailings in 2018. “U” by Uniworld will offer authentic and adventurous experiences for the next generation of river cruisers, along the Instagram-worthy rivers of Europe and major cities such as Paris, Amsterdam and Budapest. “U” by Uniworld will deliver the same level of authenticity and personalization that the Uniworld brand is celebrated for, while offering a new way for exploratory travelers to experience the pulse of Europe. The product will target active travelers (ages 18-40) with everything targeting their needs: from the décor, dining and cocktail service to the land activities thoughtfully curated to appeal to, and meet the needs of this audience. Two of Uniworld’s existing ships – the River Baroness and the River Ambassador – will undergo renovations and design changes that will tailor the ships to be completely dedicated to the “U” by Uniworld product as of 2018.
