Uniworld has added two new itineraries to its European offerings, as well as enhancements to the all-inclusive guest experience.
Additionally, in March 2017, Uniworld will inaugurate the S.S. Joie de Vivre, the first Super Ship in Uniworld’s fleet to sail on the Seine River.
The debut of Uniworld’s new itineraries, Rhine-Main Discovery & Munich and Paris & Impressions of the Seine, will provide guests with an opportunity to explore the history, art, gastronomy and architecture by river.
The 10-day Rhine-Main Discovery & Munich itinerary will introduce Uniworld’s new Jewish heritage programming and exclusive excursions, through which guests will learn the historic roots of Judaism in Germany from pre-World War II to modern-day culture, while Paris & Impressions of the Seine explores Northern France’s countryside in a region immortalized by artists like Van Gogh, Monet and Courbet, among others.
In 2017, Uniworld will include all port fees in the total cost of the cruise, simplifying the messaging and thus enhancing the overall guest experience. Uniworld will also implement 24-hour room and in-suite butler services, as well as a new onboard Concierge service that will serve as a tool for guests to personalize their itinerary to cater to individual interests and passions.
The S.S. Joie de Vivre, Uniworld’s new aptly named French Super Ship, will sail the Seine River on the Paris & Normandy itinerary. Built at 125 meters, smaller than the typical 135 meters, the S.S. Joie de Vivre will be inaugurated in March 2017 and is permitted to dock in the heart of Paris on the Seine River, making it the first of Uniworld’s Super Ships to do so. The ship will accommodate a total of 128 guests and feature 54 staterooms, eight Junior Suites and two Royal Suites, each designated with a special signature style.
