Life aboard S.S. Catherine
From March to November Uniworld's S.S. (Super Ship) Catherine provides 7-night Rhône-Saône River cruises, either way between Avignon (coach from Marseille Airport) and Lyon, stopping at four ports on the way. Southern France is the home of wines, culinary arts, cathedrals, Roman ruins, and the fields that inspired Van Gogh, Cézanne and Gauguin. This cruise can be joined with other river trips in France. Link with S.S.Joie de Vivre on the Seine from Paris to the English Chanel and rail Paris-Lyon (a total of 14 nights). A 21-night triple cruise links the Seine River trip by rail with River Royale in the ‘Bordeaux, Vineyards & Châteaux’ region of France, and then a flight to Lyon and ending in Marseille.

S.S. Catherine is one of Uniworld’s twelve boutique, hotel-style European river ships. The ship incorporates all the best features of the fleet, the latest being a 20-seat 3D cinema with traditional popcorn and hors d'oeuvres. The interior décor includes many art works and exquisitely upholstered chairs and sofas. Added in the cruise are first-class hotels (according to the cruise), all meals with complimentary dinner drinks, 24-hour specialty coffee and tea bar, bottled water, all shore excursions with audio headphones, local English-speaking guides, use of bicycles, Captain’s Welcome Gala and Farewell Dinner, and all transfers. There is free Internet access and Wi-Fi in public areas.

Accommodation
All cabins are outside, comfortable, and maintained by twice-a-day service. All have premium bedding, controllable AC, direct-dial telephone, flat-screen TV with satellite, storage, built-in safe, vanity, hair dryer, bathrobes, and marble bathroom fitted out with L’Occitane products. Lower deck cabins have a head-height wide window, and the middle and upper deck staterooms have twin full-height sliding glass doors. An elevator services all accommodation decks. There is one single stateroom on the lowest deck.

Each of the 79 staterooms is lavishly furnished with superior bedding, and outside view. Thirty-eight middle and upper deck staterooms have French balconies. Twenty-three top-deck staterooms and 6 suites have full open-air balconies. The Suites come with extra amenities that include a bottle of wine on arrival, larger sitting area, personal DVD players, slippers, refrigerator, fruit and cookie plate, full Butler, Nespresso coffee machine, continental breakfast, shoe shine, free laundry service, and a special dinner in the Captain’s Lounge. The one Owner’s Suite offers many extra luxuries.

Food and Dining
The Cézanne Restaurant is on the middle deck, with excellent views to accompany your French-classic dining and provides open seating. Dining is acclaimed as “best-of-the-best” by observers of the river cruise industry. Breakfasts and lunches are full buffet with an extensive array of hot and cold items, and individually prepared items are available. Menu items change daily, follow the region and season, and include Continental and American preparations. Local and regional specialities are featured. Dinner is open-seating with four courses. Accompanying dinner are fine wines and a selection of beers and soft drinks.

Alternatively, dine al fresco at lunch and dinner on the Sun Deck during good weather. Menus follow the river, using fresh local ingredients and cuisines. Special dietary and vegetarian requests are catered for. Afternoon tea is served in the main lounge. All day Bistro Menu is for snacks. The specialty coffee and tea bar is open around the clock. Dining features include the Captain’s Welcome and Farewell Receptions, Welcome and Farewell Gala Dinners, and the ‘Epicurean Adventurer Program’. Uniworld received the TravelAge West Wave Award Editor’s Pick 2014 “Best Overall Cruise Line for River Cruising”.

Entertainment
The cruise focus is on exploration and walking tours with local guides. Tour variations continue to expand to meet the requests of guests: you have a choice of five ways to explore, according to your wishes. Travel lectures expand your knowledge of the regions visited, and the Epicurean Adventurer Program enhances your appreciation of local cuisine ashore. Visiting entertainers come on board along the route. There is a lower deck Cinema. A Family-Friendly program is offered during school holiday times.

Public areas include the Van Gogh Lounge with a full-service bar, and Bar du Leopard. The sun deck (parts of which is enclosed) has deck chairs, and chess and shuffleboard. Health facilities include a fitness room with jet massage shower cabin, massage room and boutique. Bicycles and Nordic walking sticks are provided for self-organised sight-seeing.

Happy Customers

Just one thing - my mother & brother went on this cruise, and when they checked into their cabin they had a double bed!!! Cabin staff had thought "Mr & Mrs Arthur" were husband and wife, even though I booked a cabin with 2 single beds. Cabin crew fixed the mistake quickly and with a smile."
