Uniworld Boutique River Cruises Set To Debut Fifth Super Ship Next Spring

The River Beatrice, which originally debuted in 2009, will be upgraded into a brand new Super Ship, S.S. Beatrice.


Uniworld Boutique River Cruises today announced that it will add another Super Ship to its fleet in the spring of 2018.

River Beatrice, which originally debuted in 2009, will be upgraded into a brand new Super Ship, S.S. Beatrice, “providing the utmost in luxury,” Uniworld president and CEO Ellen Bettridge announced today.

“Following the successful launch of the S.S. Joie de Vivre earlier this year, we are eager to introduce yet another remarkable Super Ship,” Bettridge said.

The renovations are being directed by the design team from Red Carnation Hotels, Uniworld’s sister brand from The Travel Corporation, and will include an update to all public space on the ship.  

A new grand staircase—a signature of other Uniworld Super Ships including the S.S. Joie de Vivre—will be installed along with new dining venues and a private space that will replace the ship’s old Captain’s Lounge and Library.

Earlier this month, S.S. Joie de Vivre hotel manager Astrid Veldwijk told TMR that the idea of multiple dining venues “have proven so successful I think they will roll it out across the rest of the fleet.”

Uniworld will also touch up the ship’s accommodations. Beatrice’s 12 existing suites will all be refreshed and connecting rooms, which will allow for easier family travel, will be added. Two 375-square-foot Royal Suites will be installed along with a new Owner’s Suite.

S.S. Beatrice will re-enter the fleet as Uniworld’s fifth Super Ship. On average, Uniworld's Super Ships are around 443 ft. long, while the rest of its fleet are typically 361 ft. 

It will make its first voyage on April 4, 2018, launching at the same time as Uniworld’s brand new, Millennial-oriented cruise brand U by Uniworld.
