France Cruises - S.S. Catherine

The S.S. Catherine is one of the company's largest ships at 443 ft. long. According to Guy Young, President of Uniworld, “As we did with the S.S. Antoinette, we have used the additional space on the S.S. Catherine to create innovative public areas and extra spacious staterooms and suites for our guests. The S.S. Catherine has a 159 total passenger capacity, with five suites at 305 sq. ft. and one Royal Suite at 410 sq. ft. All suites and staterooms on the top deck feature French balconies. Staterooms on the middle deck also feature French balconies. All suites and staterooms have one-of-a-kind touches such as handcrafted Savoir® of England beds and beautiful marble bathrooms.

The S.S. Catherine offers three full decks with elegantly appointed public areas designed with one goal in mind: delighting guests. Similar to the S.S. Antoinette, the S.S. Catherine has the whimsical Leopard Lounge with its unique leopard print furnishings, elephant-head bar rails and many other jungle-like touches. There is a beautiful mosaic-tiled pool and spa area. The main restaurant features an al fresco outdoor dining terrace further enriching the dining experience as you sail through the inspiring countryside. There is also be a bistro restaurant where guests can experience dining in a cozy atmosphere. The signature touches for which Uniworld has become known – inspiring original hand-selected art, classic furnishings, old world antiques, marble, and clever use of mirrors can be found in the various public areas along with different hues of green, brown, beige, and gold adorning the walls and floors throughout.

No doubt that the S.S. Catherine continues setting the standard in luxury river cruising in the South of France along the Rhone and Saone, allowing more passenger capacity to support the Burgundy and Provence itinerary, which is one of the most popular programs.
