Introducing Uniworld’s newest super ship the SS Catherine

Cruise Burgundy & Provence on Uniworld’s NEW super ship, S.S. Catherine
In 2014 the new super ship, SS Catherine will join the Uniworld fleet where it will service the eight-day Burgundy & Provence cruise. The largest in the fleet, she will accommodate 159 guests in extra spacious staterooms when she makes her maiden voyage from Avignon in April 2014. Guests will no doubt feel like royalty with Uniworld’s one-of-a-kind luxury touches such as handcrafted Savoir® of England beds and beautiful marble bathrooms complete with L’Occitane en Provence bath and body products. Suites on the Camargue and Avignon decks feature French balconies where guests can be mesmerised by the scenery along the Rhone and Saône rivers and perhaps catch occasional scents of lavender or sun ripened grapes.

The public areas are similarly impressive and elegantly appointed. Think original hand-selected art, classic furnishings, old-world antiques, marbles and mirrors.

This region inspired works by the like of Van Gogh, Cézanne and Gaugin, though if it’s the art of fine dining that impresses guests, they won’t be disappointed by the offerings. The ship’s main restaurant will feature an al fresco outdoor dining terrace allowing guests to dine whilst viewing the countryside. Guests can also choose to dine in the cosy bistro restaurant. Both will serve meals impeccably prepared by chefs onboard designed to reflect the local regions, and using the freshest ingredients from local farmers markets, sourced throughout the trip. Uniworld’s all-inclusive cruise price means guests can enjoy unlimited beverages onboard including fine wine, beer, spirits, soft drinks and specialty tea and coffee.
