Uniworld welcomed the new Super Ship, S.S. Catherine, with a special inaugural cruise through France's Burgundy and Provence regions.

"I am confident that the S.S. Catherine will continue setting the standard of excellence in luxury river cruising.
We have used the additional space on our new Super Ship to create innovative public areas and extra spacious staterooms and suites for our guests. This will allow us to offer more capacity to support our popular ‘Burgundy & Provence’ and ‘Grand France’ itineraries."
