S.S. Joie de Vivre

Uniworld's river cruise "super ship", S.S. Joie de Vivre celebrates all things French, drawing inspiration from the elegance of Paris from the 1930’s to the 1950’s. Throughout the ship, there are original linen posters dating between the the 1860’s and 1940’s, and Le Salon Toulouse showcases 64 pictures depicting Paris in 1861 in a series known as “Paris dans sa splendour”. Additional art on board includes works by George Goursat, a famed cartoonist from the early 1900’s.

The ship's well-appointed staterooms have handcrafted Savoir of England beds, high-thread count 100% Egyptian cotton sheets and duvets, and a menu of pillow options. You can also expect Asprey bath and body products, plush towels, and cosy bathrobes and slippers!

Dining on board features the finest and freshest ingredients, from light options to multi-course menus. Choose Le Restaurant Pigalle or try the ship's very own Parisian-style sidewalk café, Le Bistrot, a très bon spot to savour panoramic views of the Seine. In addition to the the Salon Toulouse main lounge and bar on the Victor Hugo Deck, the ship’s Club L’Esprit Spa transforms each evening into Claude’s, a vibrant bar and entertainment venue. Here you may enjoy speciality cocktails and view a classic French film on select nights in an intimate cinema setting. Lovers of French food and wine can also opt for a special dinner in the ship's La Cave du Vin. Throughout your cruise you may enjoy unlimited complimentary beverages including wine, beer, spirits, soft drinks, speciality coffee and tea, and mineral water.

Uniworld employs a professionally trained, dedicated, English-speaking staff. In partnership with its sister company, Red Carnation Hotels, Uniworld takes pride in its long-lasting relationships with guests, for whom there is “no request too large, no detail too small.”
