River Cruising Redefined
For 2020, Uniworld is continuing to raise the standards of all-inclusive luxury river cruising to one of the most impressive experiences on the rivers. Following the redesign of S.S. Joie de Vivre, S.S. Beatrice and S.S. Bon Voyage, Uniworld’s Super Ship fleet will continue to flourish with the addition of three new vessels in Vietnam, Egypt and Portugal as well as a Super Ship renovation in Italy. By 2020, 60 percent of their ships will be Super Ships, allowing them to redefine luxury along one of the world’s most legendary rivers with their enhanced dining venues, additional suites, grand staircases and average capacity of 130 guests.
