Los Angeles, California-based Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection today (March 14) announced the selection of the legendary French actress Catherine Deneuve as godmother of the newly launched, 159-passenger S.S. Catherine.
A fitting choice considering Deneuve’s timeless beauty and esteemed acting career that spans more than 50 years. Perhaps most well-known for her roles in “Belle du Jour” and “Indochine,” she has been nominated for dozens of international acting awards and was chosen by the European Film Academy last December to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award. Deneuve has also been the face of Chanel No. 5, L’Oréal, Louis Vuitton, MAC Cosmetics, and many others.
“We are so excited to have Ms. Deneuve as the Godmother to our new Super Ship, S.S. Catherine,” said Guy Young, President of Uniworld. “She exemplifies everything our new Super Ship represents: classic sophistication, beauty, elegance, and grace.”
The intimate S.S. Catherine houses 79 staterooms with six suites on the top deck offering private balconies which can convert to enclosed conservatories with the tap of a button. Other staterooms are fitted with French balconies. All accommodations come with handcrafted Savoir® of England beds and beautiful marble bathrooms. Public areas include the Van Gogh Lounge, full-service Bar du Leopard, Cézanne Restaurant, an al fresco terrace, a mosaic-tiled resistance pool, and the Serenity River Spa.
