Setting sail from Paris

Paris is a joyful expression of all that is glorious about France, a city of rarified tastes, romantic riverside walks and the occasional rather rude waiter. Although the sights will be familiar even to first-time visitors, this does nothing to lessen their impact; a word like 'iconic' doesn't quite do justice to that first glimpse of Gustave Eiffel's famous tower looming over the Seine. Culture vultures will be in seventh heaven, with a plethora of galleries and museums housing some of the finest art collections in the world, and the restaurant scene is absolutely first class.

Our tip

The latest ‘up and coming’ neighbourhood changes on a regular basis, though districts such as Montmartre and the Latin Quarter retain a timeless appeal.

Arriving in Bordeaux

Bordeaux sits at the centre of the world's most famous wine region, and is home to a beguiling blend of beautiful buildings, sophisticated gastronomy and high culture. What's more, the city has been transformed over the last few years: the grandiose 18th century facades have been scrubbed clean, a shiny new public transport system has been installed, and a wonderful new promenade has been created alongside the river Garonne. We think Bordeaux is a marvellous place to spend some time, whether it's a day sampling wines, an evening at the opera or a night on the tiles.

Don't miss

You have to see the Water Mirror, which you will find by the Place de la Bourse. Who would have thought that two centimetres of water on a huge granite slab could create such an amazing effect?

Uniworld - S.S. Joie de Vivre on the Seine
Uniworld River Cruises - S.S. Joie de Vivre stateroom
Uniworld - S.S. Joie de Vivre - Salon Toulouse

Uniquely designed and decorated, with an exceptional attention to detail, S.S. Joie de Vivre has been crafted to reflect the specific area in which she operates.

What we love

Uniworld's newest Super Ship joined the fleet in 2017, bringing a new level of luxury to the river Seine. The decor is stylish but understated, inspired by 20th century Parisian design, and staterooms are surprisingly spacious, with a cleverly designed French balcony opening the room to the outside. Dining at the main Restaurant Le Pigalle and the café style Le Bistrot is an absolute treat, and the spa and wellness centre undergoes a miraculous transformation every evening to become Claude's, a glitzy cocktail bar and supper club.
