It's Mother's Day! As if to celebrate "my" day, I began the day with a nice hotel breakfast. Soon after we gathered our belongings and boarded a bus bound for the S.S. Joie de Vivre, the Uniworld ship. This is the newest ship in their fleet and it is magnificent! Did I think to take any pictures of the ship? No! Luckily, other people (including Uniworld) have posted pictures, so I now share some with you!
|410 feet long. 37.5 feet wide. 64 cabins. 52 crew to take care of a maximum of 128 passengers. We only had 96 passengers, including 16 travel agents. We wondered if our most excellent service was an effort to impress the agents.|
|The cabin - spacious with lots of storage! The top half of the window slides all the way down.|
|This is "La Cave du Vin". We attended a wine tasting here and a cooking class.|
|The ship has another dining option in the bow. They have a café menu offered almost all day.|
|This is a shot of the lounge. Comfortable seating for all. We met here each evening for an overview of the next day. Drinks are served at no additional charge!|
After we explored the ship we were treated to our first lunch in the dining room, a fabulous buffet. I don't recall what I ate, exactly, but it was all good! Then, after eating we took a short bus ride to a Seine River Cruise company and had an informative trip along the Seine. Come along with us!
|Our river tour went from left to right, and back again.|
Can you match the pictures to the images?
