Uniworld’s Super Ship Bon Voyage is due to feature on Channel 5’s World’s Most Scenic River Journeys tonight (Friday 4 February) at 7pm.
The episode will focus on France’s Dordogne river which is one of the rivers that the SS Bon Voyage sails on Uniworld’s Brilliant Bordeaux itinerary.
The programme is the second episode in a 10-part series narrated by Bill Nighy and will celebrate the scenery, people and places along one of France’s most picturesque rivers.
The episode will showcase the ship’s sumptuous interiors, cuisine and experienced team, including its captain and head chef.
The SS Bon Voyage boasts the first and only infinity pool on a European river ship, and is decked out with antique pieces and original art, including Picasso lithographs.
The Brilliant Bordeaux itinerary takes in activities such as Bordeaux by bike, an exploration of Blaye fortress, walking in the footsteps of Toulouse Lautrec at Château de Malromé and Cadillac, famous for its delicious dessert wines.
Chris Townson, UK MD of Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, said: “TV has proven to be a very powerful medium for showcasing the quality of our product and experience, and we are excited to see this programme come to air.”
He added: “Agents wanting to get a sense of what differentiates our product and of course to see the beauty of the region should take a look, and recommend their clients do the same. Our team is on hand with additional assets and collateral to support, and another key selling point is the option of our self-drive packages to France, so travellers can travel to Bordeaux in their own car and bubble, making a feature of the journey at their own pace.”
The Dordogne episode of The World’s Most Scenic River Journeys will be screened tonight on Channel 5 at 7pm and will then be available on My5.
