Uniworld’s new ‘Super Ship’ S.S. Maria Theresa launches in Amsterdam today and Cruise International is on board.
The new ship, which will sail along the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, is a sister ship to S.S. Antoinette and S.S. Catherine and is designed to evoke the classic, opulent style of the Austrian empire.
Highlights on board include:
The sophisticated atrium on S.S. Maria Theresa is more low-key than the one on S.S Catherine with a stunning crystal chandelier, twin staircases and portrait of Empress Maria Theresa.
The Habsburg Salon
The Hapsburg Salon on S.S. Maria Theresa is a luxurious space elegantly furnished with rich fabrics in pink and blue, with a bar, entertainment area and plenty of sofas and chairs to relax – it’s also the venue for afternoon tea.
Heated swimming pool
Not quite big enough for laps (or really, more than one person at a time) but the swimming pool on S.S. Maria Theresa is made for chilling out.
Staterooms with open-air and French balconies on the Main and Upper Decks
All staterooms and suites have handcrafted Savoir® of England beds, 100% Egyptian cotton linens, built-in closets, a hair dryer, safe, individual thermostat, flatscreen TV with infotainment centre, and bottled mineral water. Marble bathrooms feature underfloor heating, L’Occitane en Provence products, plush towels, towel warmer, and bathrobes and slippers. The colour scheme is pale blue gold cream and white with distressed mirrors, including a wall mirror that also becomes the TV.
The suites on board S.S. Maria Theresa are uniquely decorated and have additional amenities and services, including in-suite special butler service, packing and unpacking assistance, full breakfast menu, daily fruit and cookie plate, elegant evening snack, robes and slippers, iPod® docking station, Nespresso coffee machine and fine teas, fully stocked mini bar, free laundry and shoe shine service, bottle of wine upon arrival, Hermés bath products, one-per-person in-suite well-being treatment, and a special dinner in Bar du Leopard.
The Royal Suite offers additional benefits, including a separate and spacious living room, and a bathroom with a separate rain shower and tub, as well as a secluded toilet and bidet area.
