Uniworld Boutique River Cruises unveiled an anticipated first look at its S.S. La Venezia, one of the newest Super Ships in its fleet of floating boutique hotels. It will set sail in Northern Italy, embodying the country’s timeless beauty, enduring quality and passion for food, art and living well. Italian artist Mariano Fortuny inspired the design, led by Uniworld artistic directors Toni Tollman and Brian Brennan.
“We are absolutely thrilled to share details of the S.S. La Venezia, inspired by the incredible artistry and vision of Mariano Fortuny,” said Ellen Bettridge, CEO and president, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises. “Over a century after its founding, Fortuny continues to prize originality, made only possible by artisans deeply committed to their craft. This speaks to the Uniworld philosophy. For our guests, this means a setting and style of service that is wholly immersive in the enduring fascination and magic that is Venice; and is born from more than 100 years of experience.”
S.S. La Venezia is “a work unto itself” designed to complement and enhance its carefully curated Venetian itineraries. The Fortuny story is intricately woven into the design of the ship and Uniworld guests will have the opportunity to visit its private showroom and gardens to learn more.
Onboard, cruisers will have several dining options including Rialto’s, the largest dining venue offering traditional Venetian fare. At Hari’s Bar and Lounge, guests enjoy live music, cocktails, an impressive Champagne list and a selection of traditional paninis. La Cantinetta offers private dining with expert wine pairings, after spending the day shopping at Rialto food market with the chef to source dinner ingredients. Cielo’s Pizzeria serves wood-fired pizzas complemented by a salad bar and al fresco dining.
Once she officially debuts, S.S. La Venezia will sail the eight-day Venice & the Gems of Northern Italy itinerary. Three additional itineraries in 2021 and 2022 include the 10-day Milan, Venice & the Gems of Northern Italy, the 12-day Cruise & Rail: Venice & the Swiss Alps and the 14-day Cruise & Rail: Milan, Venice & the Swiss Alps.
