Spring blooms at Uniworld with a Super-Ship Inaugural and an innovative new brand designed exclusively for millennial travelers.

The Spring season has never been so fresh and bright at Uniworld as it is now. This Spring we christen the S.S. Joie de Vivre on the Seine river and open bookings for U BY UNIWORLD, a genre-defining experience for guests 18 to 40.

The S.S. Joie de Vivre, our newest Super Ship, is all about France. It boasts a bright and colorful, classic French motif and transforms river cruising with novel features like a swimming pool that converts to a dance floor at night. The S.S. Joie de Vivre’s décor sets the standard for the finest super yachts in the world today with fine art framed against a back drop of luxurious fabrics, carpets and highly polished wood finishes.
The food aboard the S.S. Joie de Vivre is classically French: haute cuisine with the best wines to match. The Paris and Normandy itinerary is planned for total immersion in the surrounding area, with excursions of profound cultural and historical significance l. I am looking forward to my first inaugural as CEO of Uniworld and meeting our Godmother the Dame Joan Collins.

U BY UNIWORLD will go on sale at the end of March and set sail in early 2018. Our new cruise concept, aimed at a younger demographic, will offer immersive and authentic adventures to the next generation of river cruisers as they travel the Instagram- and Snapchat-worthy rivers of Europe, stopping at such storied cities as Amsterdam, Paris and Budapest. We are extensively renovating two of our existing vessels – the River Baroness and the River Ambassador – with design changes that are dedicated to the active traveler between the ages of 18 and 40. While I might be over the age to sail, you can bet I will be there for the launch.

Our 40-year-old company continues to innovate and Uniworld will continue to have inventive, new cruise concepts in the years to come.

Happy Spring!
Warmest,
Ellen
