Uniworld Boutique River Cruises S.S. Maria Theresa

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection launched its newest Super Ship, the S.S Maria Theresa in March 2015, the company’s most ambitious ship to date. Fashioned in the spirit of her great namesake, the much beloved Maria Theresa, the ship is a masterpiece of epic proportion.The aim of the design team led by visionaries from Uniworld’s award-winning sister company, the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, was to transport each guest into experiencing the fantasy of living in an 18th-century Baroque castle, as well as providing them with the latest in luxurious comfort and technology.

The striking three-tiered lobby dominated by a sweeping marble staircase with wrought-iron, hand-gilded balustrade and royal crown detailing is accompanied by a hand-painted Tromp L’Oeil-inspired mural, glittering Venetian Murano glass chandelier and a ten-foot original oil on canvas painting of the beloved ruler of Habsburg Empire, evoking feelings of the great hall of 18th-century Schönbrunn palace.

Guest areas including the Habsburg Salon, Viennese café, 10-seat Lipizzan cinema and signature Leopard Bar boast original Austrian Croxford and Saunders paintings, hand selected antiques, intricate mosaic tile murals and local specialties sparking conversation and contemplation for guests to indulge in.

The S.S. Maria Theresa has 64 elegant staterooms, ten sumptuous suites and one spectacular Royal Suite, and while all are unique, all designed with exacting standards, and in true Uniworld style, each one is unique, but all feature sumptuous fabric-wall coverings combined with rich-handmade carpets, antique furnishings, original art, canopy or four poster custom made-to-order English Savoir beds draped in the finest monogrammed bed linens, and open-air or French balconies.

Discover the delights of Uniworld’s newest Super Ship as she cruises through the heart of Maria Theresa’s vast former empire on the Tulips & Windmills, European Jewels, European Holiday Markets, and Grand Christmas & New Year’s Cruise itineraries, all delivering a truly unique and memorable experience.
