Uniworld’s ‘super ship’ river cruiser – sister vessel to the equally opulent SS Antoinette and SS Catherine – the SS Maria Theresa plies a number of itineraries along the Rhine, Main and Danube, connecting Amsterdam, Münich Budapest and cities in between. Staterooms on the upper and middle Hofburg and Schönbrunn Decks are a generous 162 to 194 sq ft, ten suites on the Hofburg Deck measure 305 sq ft and the Royal Suite comes in at an overwhelming 410 sq ft. All staterooms and suites on Uniworld SS Maria Theresa feature open-air or French balconies, and in-suite butler service and marble bathrooms come as standard.
Other lavish design features on board SS Maria Theresa include hand-picked original art and classically designed and antique furnishings, as well as the signature Bar du Léopard, replete with animal print décor. The home-from-home staterooms (‘cabin’ is just too small a word) feature generous built-in closets, individual climate-control thermostat, direct-dial telephone and flatscreen TV with infotainment centre.
