Jane McDonald is to present a brand new TV series on Channel 5, which is all about different types of cruise holidays. The new show ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ is to launch on 10 February 2017.
The four-part series will feature a range of different cruise ships of all different types and sizes. In the first episode Jane McDonald spends seven-nights cruising the Caribbean on board MSC Divina.
The award-winning actress, author and producer, Dame Joan Collins is to be the godmother to the newest river cruise ship set to join the Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection fleet in March 2017.
The new river cruise ship, S.S. Joie de Vivre has been designed to cruise the Seine River and will be based in Paris, docking in the heart of the French capital. The 128-passenger ship will reflect all things French, from French cuisine and wine, to art, music and design.
Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is to launch a new river cruise brand to appeal to younger travellers. To be known as U by Uniworld, the brand will aim to attract 18-40 year old cruisers and will offer more adventurous experiences and modern décor and lively on board atmosphere.
Ellen Bettridge, President & CEO of Uniworld, said: ““U by Uniworld will deliver the same superb quality of authenticity and personalisation that the Uniworld brand is celebrated for, while offering a new way for exploratory, younger travellers to experience the pulse of Europe. We are targeting an active traveller between the ages of 18 and 40, with everything from the décor, dining and cocktail service to the land activities thoughtfully curated to appeal to, and meet the needs of, this audience.”
