FrontRunners: River Queen

  • Uniworld S.S. Catherine passenger ship
<< Back to Robb Report, March 2014

This March, the river cruise line Uniworld (www.uniworld.com) will christen the S.S. Catherine, a 159-passenger ship set to sail the rivers of France. Featuring 82 river-view staterooms and suites—each with a private balcony, a handmade bed from Savoir of England, and a sleek black-and-white decor—the vessel will embark on 8- and 14-day itineraries through Burgundy, Provence, Paris, and Normandy. Onboard amenities will include a safari-themed lounge, a spa, a mosaic-tiled swimming pool, and two restaurants.
