Uniworld Boutique River Cruises (who are sold through a unique tie-up with Titan Travel in the UK) are preparing to launch their latest vessel on the rivers of Europe, and have just released a set of pre-launch photos of the SS Catherine.
The sleek 154-passenger ship - the follow-up to last year's highly-rated SS Antoinette - will be christened at Lyon in France on March 27 and will sail 8-day cruises along the Rhone and Saone from Lyon to Avignon from April to November as well as forming the southern part of Uniworld's grand 15-day cruises from Paris to Avignon.
The former follows in the footsteps of Van Gogh, Cézanne, and Gauguin through southern France as Uniworld’s Epicurean Adventurer Programme shines a spotlight on the region’s incomparable wine and cuisine. The latter adds a week's cruise from the beaches of Normandy to the verve and romance of Paris itself.
SS Catherine also looks as good as her trail-blazing sister, if the latest photos are anything to go by. But you can also see for yourself on Uniworld's Facebook pages.
