Ship Rating

4.0 of 5 stars

Costco Member Rating:
4.7/5 (127 Ratings)

When you step aboard the S.S. Antoinette, you'll understand why the "S.S." precedes "Antoinette," as this appropriately means "Super Ship." Aboard ship, the ambiance is reminiscent of France's Château de Versailles during the late 18th century, with the character of the past thoughtfully blended with unusual touches to create a feeling of luxury, warmth and elegance. A blue Strauss 10-foot Baccarat chandelier with huge sapphires, originally hung in New York's famed Tavern on the Green, graces the two-story lobby. Fine Brazilian marble adorns the walls and floors, and a sparkling 19th-century Venetian glass mirror rests high above the reception desk, providing an air of grandeur. The S.S. Antoinette shares the same exquisite standards and meticulous attention to detail reflective throughout Uniworld's fleet. Haute design with comfortable décor symbolize the style and grace for which Uniworld ships are known.
