S.S. Catherine Overview

The S.S. Catherine -- sister ship of the S.S. Antoinette -- will be one of Uniworld's largest ships when it launches in 2014. Cruising throughout France, the 159-passenger luxury river ship will offer three full decks lined with elegant public areas. S.S. Catherine will have the signature Leopard Lounge with leopard-print furnishings, elephant-head bar rails and other jungle-like elements.

Other public areas and amenities include the mosaic-tiled pool and spa, main restaurant with outdoor al fresco dining terrace, bistro for a more relaxed dining experience, fitness center, boutique, free Wi-Fi and a 24-hour specialty coffee and tea bar.

A classic artistic theme graces the ship and is expressed through the public areas' names: Van Gogh Lounge, Cezanne Restaurant and Matisse Terrace, for example. Each cabin comes with a designer bed, built-in closet, flat-screen TV and marble bath. Cabins on the top and middle decks will offer French balconies (essentially, glass doors that open to railings). A palette of green, brown, beige and gold also adds to the Old World feel.

Itineraries will include stops in Burgundy and Provence, with side sailings along the Seine, Rhone and Saone Rivers. The ship's inaugural cruise will take place April 6, 2014, from Avignon, France.
