With Uniworld on The SS Catherine

Worldof Cruising managing director Chris Pitchford had never been on a cruise before this week. He and his wife decided to break their duck with a river cruise on Uniworld’s latest vessel, the elegant SS Catherine. He shares his thoughts and those of his friend John Dobson who joined them with his wife

" We arrived at the SS Catherine. What a sight to behold - absolutely fabulous.  Check in was almost as easy as simply saying good morning. A quick scan of the passport and we were done and on our way. We had a quick look around the boat and settled in a very elegant and comfortable lounge for a few refreshing glasses of welcoming champagne.

A quick unpack and brief respite from travelling and we arrived back in the lounge for an evening briefing covering details of our luxury boat, safety, and the offshore tour opportunities. Our final challenge on day 1 was to do justice to an excellent dinner in a splendid dining room with oodles of quality champagne and wine, or for that matter almost anything you wanted.

Come back tomorrow to hear about our excursion to Arle and the Captain's Dinner!
