Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has named English author, actor and writer Dame Joan Collins as the godmother of its newest ship.

S.S. Joie de Vivre, which will be christened on March 27, will be the first Uniworld SuperShip to sail France’s Seine River on the popular Paris & Normandy itinerary. It will feature two Royal Suites, eight Junior Suites and 54 staterooms; décor will include made-to-order Savoir of England beds and marble-lined bathrooms, French-inspired handcrafted furniture, and gilded and wrought-iron accents. There is also a movie theatre and a hydraulic pool, as well as a Salon de Beaux-Arts lounge carrying fine art and antiques. There will be two restaurants, Le Restaurant Pigalle and La Cave de Vins; the latter will be designed for private dining and wine-pairing.

Collins is best known for her work as Alexis Carrington in Dynasty. A resident of the French Riviera and a regular at Paris Fashion Week, she was chosen because she “epitomizes the ‘joy of living’ philosophy that is reflected in every bold detail and gentle touch of our newest Super Ship,” Uniworld president and CEO Ellen Bettridge said.
