Uniworld has released renderings of its new Super Ship, SS São Gabriel, which will debut in Portugal in April 2020.
One of four Super Ships launching next year, the vessel will join fellow new SS Sphinx, Mekong Jewel, and SS La Venezia.
“Expanding upon our commitment to transform our entire fleet to Super Ships in the coming years, we’re thrilled to share a first look at the stunning SS São Gabriel,” said Ellen Bettridge, president & CEO of Uniworld. “Evoking a fresh new design inspired by the majestic landscapes in Portugal and adorned with gorgeous Portuguese tiles, the S.S. São Gabriel will bring the destination to life for our guests, while maintaining the highest calibre of service and personalisation.”
SS São Gabriel will sail the Unesco-designated Douro River Valley on an 11-day Portugal, Spain & The Douro River Valley itinerary sailing from Lisbon to Porto.
“We have been partnering with The Travel Corporation’s family brands since 2017 and this year we are delighted to partner with Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection to support the launch of their new super ship in Portugal,” says Miguel Moraes, Global Trade Marketing Director at Visit Portugal. “Our strategy is to promote all the regions of our diverse country than can be visited year-round. The luxury traveller is a key target for us as they have the propensity to stay for longer and spend more while on holiday in Portugal and this partnership with Uniworld allows us to meet this objective. We look forward to welcoming the SS São Gabriel in 2020 and the guests it will attract from the USA, Canada, UK and Australia.”
