Any ship based on the spirited french lifestyle is destined for buoyancy.

Enter the Joie De Vivre, Uniworld's 125-meter super ship (the first of its size) based on the French philosophy "joy of living" and christened yesterday by Dame Joan Collins on the Seine in Paris. (Collins, best for her role in the soap opera Dynasty, did the honors because of her avid devotion to the city of Paris.) The S.S. Joie De Vivre almost wasn't built after the 2015 attacks on Paris, but fortunately, but the plans, like the City of Light itself, proved resilient.

Sailings on the S.S. Joie de Vivre run from April 2 to December 27, 2017.

"I hold France and its ‘City of Light’ close to my heart, and now, thanks to Uniworld, my ties to the beautiful country are even closer,” Dame Joan said. “I am honored to be the Godmother of the S.S. Joie de Vivre and welcome guests from all over the world to fall in love with Paris, just as I have."

I believe that a true joie de vivre comes from within, through a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment," Collins said during an interview with Uniworld.
