This year, Uniworld’s newest Super Ship—S.S. Joie de Vivre—will bring the “joy of living” to the rivers of France. Step aboard your floating pied-à-terre in France, featuring handcrafted furniture and fine antiques, original artwork, and signature accents inspired by 20th-century Parisian design from the Golden Twenties to the free-spirited Sixties, all blending seamlessly with modern conveniences.
The S.S. Joie de Vivre, our brightly colored, chic and sophisticated “super yacht” on the Seine, will completely immerse you in all things French before you ever set foot onshore. Ooh la la!
Relax and indulge your mind, body and soul at Club L’Esprit, our onboard spa and wellness centre. Pamper yourself with an array of beauty and well-being treatments. Unwind with yoga. Work out in the resistance pool. Get your heart pumping in the onboard fitness centre. Afterwards, refresh and recharge with a deliciously good-for-you smoothie at the L’Espirit Bar.
Experience the magic each evening as Club L’Esprit transforms into Claude’s supper club, a vibrant dining and entertainment venue. Claude’s glitzy and glamorous atmosphere is the perfect place to listen to local music, enjoy delectable hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails, or view a classic French film on select nights in an intimate cinema.
LA CAVE DU VIN
Lovers of French food and wine can experience an exclusive epicurean event in our onboard show kitchen. Under the guidance of Uniworld’s talented chef, prepare an exquisite seven-course meal. Then relish your creation with wine pairings designed just for you by our Sommelier. Simply ask our Concierge to reserve your spot. Bon appetit!
The ship’s very own Parisian-style sidewalk café serves classic French cuisine. Designed with windows that lower for an open-air ambiance, Le Bistrot is a très bon spot to savor wrap-around views of the Seine.
