Deck layout and review

Review of SS Maria Theresa deck 4 (Hofburg)

  • Habsburg Salon is the boat’s Main Lounge & Bar, with dance floor, full-service bar and stage for the live evening entertainment program. In the evenings here are offered live music performances by resident duo (pianist/singer) and by local guests. The Habsburg Lounge hosts the Uniworld Cruises’ enrichment program, which includes cooking demonstrations and guests lectures (themed food and wine, art and music, culture, architecture, etc). A traditional pre-dinner event here is the Cruise Director’s talks. They offer information and tips about the next-day scheduled Uniworld excursions (complimentary) and optional tours (cost extra) ashore.
  • The Habsburg Lounge also has an outdoor observation seating area called Bohemian Terrace.
  • By the Habsburg’s Bar is located the second 24-hour coffee station for complimentary tea/coffee (with cafe tables, cookies, candies).
  • The “Pool” room (aft-portside location) has an indoor heated-water swimming pool and features floor-ceiling panoramic windows. The pool’s aft location gives the Maria Theresa ship an operational advantage. Its weight creates mass in the boat’s rear section, where vibrations tend to be a problem, thus helping for a super-quiet ride.
  • Aft is located the Bar du Leopard lounge – a classic lounge with full-service bar. The Leopard bar lounge is traditionally present in most of the Red Carnation hotels. Red Carnation Hotel Collection (Uniworld’s sister company /hotel chain brand name) operates family-owned, 5-star luxury boutique hotels in Europe, USA and South Africa.
  • The Leopard Bar has a small aft-terrace (outdoor seating area), and also serves the Sun Deck’s aft-terrace (also an outdoor seating area with 4-seat tables). Bar du Leopard also doubles as an alternative dining venue with waiter service and light food menu (pizza, pasta, salads, soups, sandwiches). At both outdoor terraces (decks 4 & 5) are also served brunches and held cocktail parties in the evenings.
  • Hofburg Deck cruise cabins from 401 to 430, all of which are open-air full balcony staterooms in categories C1-Balcony, S-Suite with balcony and the RS-Royal Suite (cabin #401 /portside). Five of all 10 Suite accommodations have third bed available.
