Uniworld’s All-inclusive European River Cruises
July 2017 | By Uniworld | 10 minute read |
Uniworld’s all-inclusive European boutique river cruises are perfectly planned to give you the uniquely unforgettable experience you’re seeking, with the individualized, industry-leading service you deserve. Each exquisitely appointed Uniworld river cruise ship is a work of art designed to be as unique as our guests and as inspiring as the destinations we visit.
Uniworld’s all-inclusive European river cruise fares include all scheduled airport transfers; in-suite butler service; in-room breakfast; all gratuities onboard and onshore; all meals onboard; unlimited beverages onboard—including an amazing selection of incredible local wines, sparkling wines and champagne, craft beers and premium spirits, such as Grey Goose, Glenfiddich and Bombay Sapphire; hosted personalized excursions; and ship-wide Wi-Fi. 24-hour room service and concierge services to the all-inclusive fare. With every convenience included, all you have to do is relax and enjoy the journey. Art is the journey of a free soul, so come on and let your soul free onboard our boutique one-of-a-kind ships.
Our award-winning ships are inspired by the beauty, colors and intricate detail of the destinations you’ll visit on your voyage. Take the S.S. Antoinette, fashioned after Marie Antoinette’s 18th-century Chateau de Versailles; the S.S. Maria Theresa, which some have described as a floating baroque Viennese palace; or the brand-new S.S. Joie de Vivre, inspired by 20th-century Paris. Your ship is a destination in and of itself, with hidden elements and artful refinements waiting to be explored in every room.
Not only is each Uniworld ship unique, complete with handcrafted furniture commissioned exclusively for Uniworld, carefully curated original artwork and antiques, and a bespoke design scheme, but each room onboard your ship is as well.
Relax in the art deco–inspired lounge on the River Queen—one of the only ships on the rivers of Europe with a working fireplace. Then relax in your custom stateroom and fall into a blissful sleep on your Savoir® of England bed.
The S.S. Joie de Vivre, our brightly colored, chic and sophisticated “super yacht” on the Seine, will completely immerse you in all things French before you ever set foot onshore. Ooh la la!
Intimately scaled so it can dock in the heart of Paris, the S.S. Joie de Vivre has two Royal Suites, eight Junior Suites and 54 staterooms, all with made-to-order Savoir of England beds, high-thread count 100% Egyptian cotton sheets and European duvets, a menu of pillow options and marble-lined bathrooms stocked with L’Occitaine and Hermès bath and body products.
La Cave Du Vin
Lovers of French food and wine can experience an exclusive epicurean event in our onboard show kitchen. Under the guidance of Uniworld’s talented chef, prepare an exquisite seven-course meal. Then relish your creation with wine pairings designed just for you by our Sommelier. Simply ask our Concierge to reserve your spot. Bon appetit!
The ship’s very own Parisian-style sidewalk café serves classic French cuisine. Designed with windows that lower for an open-air ambiance, Le Bistrot is a très bon spot to savor wrap-around views of the Seine.
Relax and indulge your mind, body and soul at Club L’Esprit, our onboard spa and wellness center. Pamper yourself with an array of beauty and well-being treatments. Unwind with yoga. Work out in the resistance pool. Get your heart pumping in the onboard fitness center. Afterwards, refresh and recharge with a deliciously good-for-you smoothie at the L’Espirit Bar.
Cultural enrichment, including a Signature Lecture: “The Seine River in Impressionist Paintings”
Experience the magic each evening as Club L’Esprit transforms into Claude’s supper club, a vibrant dining and entertainment venue. Claude’s glitzy and glamorous atmosphere is the perfect place to listen to local music, enjoy delectable hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails, or view a classic French film on select nights in an intimate cinema.
