The stunningly sophisticated S.S. Catherine is part of Unworld’s award-winning collection of boutique river cruise ships, a vessel fittingly named in honor of the beautiful and legendary French actress Catherine Deneuve. Designed with the unique signature touches for which Uniworld is known, this ultra-luxurious Super Ship marks the debut of an entirely new category of river cruising.
The magnificent 443-foot, 159-passenger S.S. Catherine was many years in the making, meticulously engineered and lavishly decorated with exquisitely crafted furnishings, hand-selected antiques, original paintings, and an indoor swimming pool with an intricate mosaic tile backsplash.
