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.

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.
