Explore the French countryside on this members-only cruise up the Seine River aboard Uniworld’s newest Super Ship, the S.S. Joie de Vivre. Our adventure starts in Paris before we journey north along the Seine to explore the landscapes that inspired Impressionist painters such as Claude Monet. Learn more about D-Day along the beaches of Normandy, explore the medieval capital of Rouen, tour Versailles, and so much more.
The S.S. Joie de Vivre even has its own Parisian-style sidewalk cafe, Le Bistrot. Tuck into classic French cuisine in the classic cafe setting, while the breeze of the Seine wafts in through open windows.
Lovers of French food and wine can sign up to participate in a hands-on cooking class in the show kitchen aboard the S.S. Joie de Vivre. Under the guidance of Uniworld’s talented chef, prepare an exquisite seven-course meal. Then, relish your creation with wine pairings designed for you by our sommelier.
Unwind at Club L'Esprit, the onboard spa and wellness center. Head to the fitness center for a workout, recharge in a yoga class, or work out in the resistance pool. Afterward, enjoy a spa treatment or swing by L’Esprit Bar for a refreshing smoothie.
Enjoy a glamorous French evening at Claude’s Supper Club, an ideal spot to spend an evening with local music, hors d’oeuvres, and cocktails. On select evenings, take in a French film in an intimate cinema setting.
The ship features handcrafted furniture, fine antiques, original artwork, and signature accents inspired by 20th-century Parisian design ranging from the Roaring Twenties to the free-spirited 1960s.
You’ll start and end your cruise in Paris, known as the City of Light. Sightsee at all the banner attractions—the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and Notre Dame—or blend in with the locals while savoring pain au chocolat at a sidewalk cafe.
