Screen legend and style icon Catherine Deneuve has christened Uniworld‘s new Super Ship S.S. Catherine at a glittering ceremony in Lyon, France.
Following a moving speech by Beatrice Tollman, President and Founder of Uniworld’s sister company, The Red Carnation Hotel Collection, Catherine Deneuve cut the ribbon, breaking a bottle of Dom Pérignon Champagne across the ship’s bow.
S.S. Catherine sets a new standard for luxury in river cruising. Decorations include a unique Murano chandelier in the atrium alongside a waterfall cascading down one side of a glass elevator. The ‘Super Ship’ also features the signature Bar du Leopard; a swimming pool; the Serenity River Spa; and the elegant Cézanne Restaurant. The ship offers 80 spacious staterooms, five suites and one Royal Presidential Suite.
Guy Young, President of Uniworld, said: “S.S. Catherine will continue setting the standard of excellence in luxury river cruising and will allow us to offer more capacity to support our popular ‘Burgundy and Provence’ and ‘Grand France’ itineraries.”
