Uniworld, a floating masterpiece

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to travel in a real-life work of art, look no further than a cruise onboard one of the Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection super ships.

Aptly named floating boutique hotels, each ship is uniquely styled to reflect the rivers sailed upon. From the gloriously enchanting Danube River to the romantic, soul stirring Rhine step onboard into a world where the beautiful colours and one-of-a-kind details of your destinations come to life. 

The newest ship in the fleet, the S.S. Bon Voyage references its French heritage throughout from its stunning lobby clad in polished wood with subtle brass details complementing the magnificent hand-crafted balustrade to the stylish emerald tones found in bar Le Salon Champagne, inspired by Yves Saint Laurent’s personal abode, Villa Majorelle. 

Have your own experience of France and Yves Saint Laurent’s inspiring décor onboard the 8-day Brilliant Bordeaux river cruise.

Also sailing in France is the S.S. Joie de Vivre. This fantastically French Super Ship is truly the embodiment of the “joy of living” as she cruises along the Seine River. Throughout the ship, there’s a number of original linen posters dating between 1860s and 1940s, and Le Salon Toulouse showcases 64 pictures depicting Paris in 1861 in a series known as “Paris dans sa splendour”. 

Additional artwork throughout the ships includes works by George Goursat, a famed cartoonist from the early 1900’s. The 8-day Paris & Normandy cruise will give you enough time to admire all the artwork onboard this beauty.

The S.S. Beatrice boasts yacht-style light wood with blue and white finishes throughout. The design inspiration began with 14-th century blue and white Chinese export porcelain, known as Deltware, merging ancient tradition with modernity of blonde wood. 

Its lobby features elegant mirrors, marble floors, a white Murano chandelier with blue shades, and a grand staircase made of nickel and black iron – a signature design element of Uniworld’s Super Ships. The artwork throughout the ship includes pieces from Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder and Pino Signoretto.  Want to get up close and personal with a Picasso original then choose to cruise the 10-day Delightful Danube and Prague onboard the S.S. Beatrice.

The S.S. Antoinette features a gorgeous 10-foot blue Straus Baccarat chandelier with sapphires that once belonged to New York’s Tavern on the Green. It hangs above the Brazilian-marble-covered two-floor lobby. See this incredible chandelier in the flesh when you sail on the S.S. Antoinette along the popular 8-day Castles Along the Rhine cruise.

Not to be outdone, the S.S. Maria Theresa boasts ultra-luxurious accommodation, fit for empress Maria Theresa herself. As a tribute to the only female ruler in the House of Habsburg, a three-metre tall, specially commissioned portrait hangs in the two-story foyer. 

She offers an intimate in-house movie theatre known as the Lipizzan Cinema with its vintage movie posters, blue tufted-velvet seating, and a marble wall with a movie screen. Line up the popcorn, choose your favourite movie and sail down the Enchanting Danube. Or cool off in the pool!

Now this is the way to sail the rivers of Europe!
