Boutique River Cruise Company To Transform River Beatrice With Complete Bow-To-Stern Renovation
NEW YORK, NY – August 24, 2017 – Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collectionis adding a fifth Super Ship to its award-winning fleet of floating boutique hotels. In spring 2018, the River Beatrice will be transformed into the S.S. Beatrice after an extensive bow-to-stern renovation.
“We are thrilled to re-launch the S.S. Beatrice as our first vessel to be upgraded to a Super Ship,” said Uniworld’s President & CEO, Ellen Bettridge. “Uniworld is committed to providing the utmost in luxury and following the successful launch of the S.S. Joie de Vivre earlier this year, we are eager to introduce yet another remarkable Super Ship to Europe’s waterways.”
The design team from Uniworld’s sister brand, Red Carnation Hotels, will bestow their creative talents on this project to once again design a Super Ship that has everything discerning travelers crave most. All public spaces and rooms will be redesigned with meticulous craftsmanship and original artwork, as well as the latest innovations and high-tech amenities available on the rivers.
The S.S. Beatrice will debut a fresh, sleek look with a graceful bow, redesigned lounge and an elegant grand staircase – a signature design element of Uniworld’s Super Ships. Additional dining venues will include a private space to replace the Captain’s Lounge and Library. Two new Royal Suites measuring 375 square feet and an additional Owner’s Suite are being created. The ship’s 12 existing suites will be refreshed and Uniworld has added connecting rooms which are ideal for families traveling together.
The S.S. Beatrice’s maiden voyage will take place on April 4, 2018, coinciding with the official launch of U by Uniworld, the company’s new brand and the first river cruise line exclusively designed for travelers ages 21-45.
