S.S. Catherine

Uniworld proudly welcomes the new Super Ship S.S. Catherine

Please visit the Media Articles page for media coverage of S.S. Catherine's christening and inaugural cruise.

S.S. Catherine was christened during an elegant ceremony on March 27, 2014. Attending the intimate ceremony were travel agency owners and executives; local dignitaries; journalists from around the world; Guy Young, President of Uniworld, and his wife, Melissa; and three generations of the Tollman Family. The ceremony opened with Brett Tollman, CEO and President of The Travel Corporation, saying, “This is a most wonderful day to christen this most gorgeous and glorious ship on the rivers.”

The celebration continued with the customary tradition of the S.S. Catherine’s ship builder giving a key to Captain Pascal Rech, followed by a heartfelt speech from Mrs. Beatrice Tollman, President and Founder of the award-winning Red Carnation Hotels, Uniworld’s sister company. Mrs. Tollman shared the history of how she and her husband, Mr. Stanley Tollman, have spent the last 60 years in the hospitality industry owning and operating five-star luxury boutique hotels with one goal in mind: “to please our guests and exceed their expectations.”

Mrs. Tollman then introduced Ms. Catherine Deneuve, France’s legendary actress and the Godmother of the S.S. Catherine. “It is my pleasure to be here today celebrating the ship that bears my name. My compliments to Mrs. Tollman for the beauty and elegance of this ship,” stated Ms. Deneuve. Captain Pascal joined Ms. Deneuve for the cutting of the blue ribbon that triggered the smashing of a bottle of Dom Perignon Champagne against the vessel's hull. All guests then joined in a champagne toast before boarding the ship to enjoy the S.S. Catherine for a special celebratory inaugural sailing.
