Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has released a look at its newly upgraded ship, the S.S. Beatrice. The new river cruise ship, which is set to debut April 4, will mark the fifth Super Ship for Uniworld’s fleet.
The newly released images include a look at the ship’s Max’s restaurant, as well as one of the vessel’s new suites. Max’s restaurant is designed as a hands-on cooking and dining experience, Uniworld said, and will be joined onboard by another new, casual dining venue, called Schubert’s.
Not a newbuild, the S.S. Beatrice is the first vessel in the Uniworld fleet to be upgraded to a Super Ship. Formerly the River Beatrice, the upgrades to Super Ship status will involve redesigning the lounge and adding a signature grand staircase, as well as adding two new Royal Suites, each measuring 375 square feet, and a second Owner’s Suite. The upgrades will also add a number of connecting rooms aimed at families and friends traveling together.
The renovations will also include a refresh to the ship’s 12 existing suites, a revamped bow design, and a redesign of all of the ship’s public spaces, including new artwork. The design team from Uniworld’s sister brand, Red Carnation Hotels, is leading the project.
On April 4 the upgraded ship will make its official debut on an inaugural itinerary along the Danube from Budapest to Giurgiu, with a land extension in Bucharest.
