Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection presented its latest S.S. series and 2019 cruise destinations over an exclusive dinner with 24 epicure guests.
The holidays are fast approaching and there's only one way to spend it, according to president and chief executive officer of Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, Ellen Bettridge. The exuberant lady introduced the group's latest S.S. series and luxury river cruises with the managing director of The Travel Corporation Asia, Nick Lim at an exclusive dinner organised by epicure. Held at one of Capella Singapore’s private rooms, culinary director David Senia held court over the kitchen with his immaculate French dishes, an ode to their many Uniworld cruises within the country.
Hosted by Media Group managing director Dennis Pua and epicure senior publisher Cecilia Goh, guests included Dynaforce International chairman Jimme Lee and chief executive officer
Annie Sun, private investor and restaurant owner Sofi Sui, Leonica K Trichology owners Wee Hian King and Leonica Kei, trade commissioner of Mexico Gerson Garduno as well as Cortina Watch general manager Jeremy Lim. Also present were Uniworld’s director for Asia Henry Yu and his team members.
Capella Singapore’s team served a succession of scrumptious canapes, pints of Bob’s Brew (a sugar cane pilsner commissioned from Young Master Ales) and Bosun’s Call (pineapple-infused Navegante Rum). The lighthearted mood continued at the dinner table with hefty pours of Certain Cellars’ Montecillo Reserva 2011 to go along with Senia’s delectable Beef Short Rib Confit. The Seared Barramundi with Salsa Verde was just as impressive when matched with the Montecillo Biano 2014. epicure managing editor Adeline Wong introduced Bettridge, who shared snippets of Uniworld's newly launched S.S. Beatrice that traverses across Europe’s Danube River as well as amusing encounters on-board. “It was a fantastic event that allowed us to showcase how Uniworld is the best luxury river cruise brand worldwide. Capella Singapore made for the perfect venue for a wonderful night connecting with new friends,” enthused Bettridge.
