High Design Cruises

by Colleen Clark

S.S. Antoinette, Uniworld, Europe

While many cruise lines have made serious strides in the design department, few have gone as far as Uniworld to push the interiors envelope. The boutique river-cruise line made a real fashion statement in March 2011 when it launched the fanciful S.S. Antoinette, an 82-cabin ship decorated with an edgy mix of over-the-top furniture, fabrics, and art. A Baccarat crystal chandelier, a 19th-century Venetian glass mirror, and a spread of Brazilian marble set the scene in the lobby. The rooms are a riot of pattern and texture (Tiffany blue toile de Jouy, striped silk taffeta, plush crimson velvet) offset by more modern accents (a stark white sham here, a simple chrome side table there). The result is that this riverboat queen looks and feels like an updated extension of the royal castles you'll cruise past on the Rhine.
