Luxury line Uniworld Boutique River Cruises is continuing to expand its fleet with the addition of S.S. Emilie. The new vessel, slated to launch in 2026, will become the line's 14th ship based in Europe and will bring the total number of Uniworld ships to 19 across Europe, Egypt, Asia and South America. It will be of the line's "Super Ships".

S.S. Emilie Deck Plans Will be Inspired by Artist Gustav Klimt

The interior design of the ship will be inspired by renowned Austrian symbolist artist Gustav Klimt, one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. It is named after his life partner and muse Emilie Floge, the subject and inspiration behind is famous painting "The Kiss".
