The Joie de Vivre was launched in 2017 by her Godmother Dame Joan Collins. This floating pied-à-terre is a chic and sophisticated ‘super yacht’ on the Seine, and features 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, blending seamlessly with modern conveniences.

In Bordeaux, the Bon Voyage is Uniworld’s brand new Super Ship. With the only infinity pool on Europe’s rivers, she has been designed to immerse guests in French culture, art and wine, from her stunning lobby clad in polished wood and subtle brass details, to the stylish emerald tones found in bar Le Salon Champagne, inspired by Yves Saint Laurent’s personal abode, Villa Majorelle.

With delicious onboard dining, unlimited beverages, wellness offerings, and station to ship transfers, this truly is the finest in all-inclusive river cruising.
