Introducing
S.S. Joie de Vivre

The newest addition to Uniworld’s renowned fleet of Super Ships has a name that truly says it all. The S.S. Joie de Vivre—“joy of living”—debuts in 2017 in Northern France, serving itineraries on the Seine River.

  • This elegant and intimate 128-passenger Super Ship will serve as a floating pied-à-terre on the Seine River, with two Royal Suites, eight suites and 54 staterooms.

  • The ship’s one-of-a-kind décor features handcrafted furniture, original artwork and signature accents inspired by 20th-century Parisian design.

  • Public spaces include the Salon Toulouse with full-service bar, multiple dining venues, an intimate wine bar and Le Club L’Esprit, an area dedicated to health and well-being with a day spa, fitness centre and a pool.

  • Uniworld has one of the most enviable staff-to-guest ratios in river cruising and a motto of “no request too large, no detail too small.” Guests also enjoy thoughtful amenities such as concierge services, 24-hour in-room dining and butler service in every suite.

  • Onboard the S.S. Joie de Vivre, Uniworld’s exquisite, Zagat-rated cuisine will showcase the unique flavors and timeless culinary traditions of France.
