Enter the gorgeous two-story lobby of Uniworld’s River Beatrice, and the stage is set for the unfolding of your pleasure-filled river cruise along Europe’s enchanting Danube. You only have to gaze at your surroundings throughout the lobby and the entire ship to fully understand that Uniworld spared no expense in creating the ultra-luxurious River Beatrice—a ship embodying grace, beauty, refinement, and comfort.
Classic luxury exemplifies the cosmopolitan style of the River Empress, with its rich jewel tones and vibrant atmosphere. Her well-rounded personality is certain to captivate you, whether you’re dining in the sleek restaurant reminiscent of a New York jazz and supper club or enjoying afternoon tea, while gazing out of her large panoramic windows in the light and bright Main Lounge. Throughout the ship, savor stylish elegance and inspiring art.
The striking lobby of the stunning River Princess sets the tone for your journey. Throughout the River Princess, you will find inspiring art and fine furnishings. Rich jewel-tone greens, warm browns, and a blend of black and white create a sophisticated ambiance for you to enjoy while cruising onboard the River Princess.
Quiet and understated elegance makes the intimate River Ambassador the perfect place to capture the many treasures that can be found along the rivers. Eclectic art fills the ship—from the corridors to the Main Lounge to the staterooms. Each suite has been uniquely decorated in a different style, a signature touch Uniworld offers throughout our fleet.
The alluring River Baroness captures the essence of French flair indicative of the heart of Paris. Resplendent art can be found throughout the ship’s corridors, in the suites, and in the Monet Lounge where a beautiful oversized oil-on-canvas painting, The Three Women, hangs. Vibrant colors in coral, salmon, and pink warm the walls of the Monet Lounge and lobby, while classic whites and mirrors lend elegance to the Van Gogh Restaurant.
You'll get a closer than ever view of the UNESCO World Heritage-designated Douro River Valley on Uniworld's NEW Queen Isabel. Named after Portugal's beloved queen, this boutique ship will be the most unique and luxurious ships on the Douro River. Whether in your stateroom or on the sun deck, you’ll never miss the exceptional beauty of rambling vineyards and charming quintas clinging to the steep slopes, creating an incomparable backdrop to one of Europe’s most unspoiled regions.
