Review of River Ambassador

Uniworld River Ambassador ship cruises on Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers departing from Amsterdam, Vienna, Prague, Basel and Frankfurt am Main. Uniworld (officially "Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection") is a major river cruise company part of The Travel Corporation group.

With the same design features and amenities are the Uniworld ships Baroness (1994), Countess (2003), Duchess (2003), Empress (2001), Princess (2001), Queen(1999), Royale (2006).

Note: Since April 2018, the ship operates under the new brand "U by Uniworld", together with the fleetmate River Baroness (cruises on Seine River from Paris France). The itineraries feature overnights and longer port stays in AmsterdamBudapestVienna.

MS River Ambassador cruise ship entered service in 1993. She's one of Uniworld Cruises older vessels. After the refurbs in 2006 and 2011, it's hard to distinguish the age of this 118-passenger ship due to the light and stylish interiors.

River Ambassador cruise ship River Ambassador suites and staterooms on the Rhine Deck feature French balconies. The amenities also include built-in closets, individual climate-control, hair dryer, direct-dial telephone, flat-screen TV, infotainment center and complimentary movie options, bottled water and Marble bathrooms with L’Occitane en Provence products. Ship's guests can benefit from the 24-hour reception service and complimentary specialty coffee bar, free Internet and Wi-Fi access. Uniworld cruises focus on walking and exploration tours with local guides.

River Ambassador river cruise prices are per person and based on double occupancy. These are only indicative Uniworld rates. They might be different when you book your Uniworld River Ambassador cruise only or cruisetour deals, influenced by travel agency promotions, special offers and discounts, group travel booking or last-minute deals rates. Uniworld offers air-inclusive cruise deals and pre/post cruise hotel packages as extensions (at additional cost).
