A Fantastically French Experience - SS Bon Voyage

After an eight-month renovation, Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has introduced its newest Super Ship - the transformed SS Bon Voyage.  SS Bon Voyage has joined SS Joie de Vivre and SS Catherine on France's waterways. Inspired by the renowned wine and gastronomic expertise of the region, SS Bon Voyage is a fantastically French experience through and through - from its design scheme to the new culinary experiences onboard. 

We are excited to welcome SS Bon Voyage to the rivers of Bordeaux - the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers.  SS Bon Voyage immerses guests in French culture, art and wine - from its stunning lobby clad in polished wood, subtle brass details and hand-crafted balustrade to the stylish emerald tones found in bar Le Salon Champagne, inspired by Yves Saint Laurent’s personal abode, Villa Majorelle.

After an extensive full-ship renovation, the River Royale has re-emerged as the SS Bon Voyage. The SS Bon Voyage has debuted a completely different look - including a redesigned top deck with an added swimming pool and lounge area and with an adjacent casual dining venue featuring lighter fare with a local spin and chef-led cooking classes. Inside, 4 new gorgeously-appointed suites have been introduced, as well as marble bathrooms throughout the ship, an enhanced dining room with an added chef demonstration area, and a new bistro inspired by Bouillon Pigalle in Paris. All finished perfectly in the unique and beautiful design aesthetic that Uniworld is known for, and paired with the addition of more crew members for a higher crew-to-guest ratio. Join us this Spring onboard Uniworld’s newest luxurious Super Ship - the SS Bon Voyage.
