The ship is long and narrow, like most European river boats, but with a stylish decor. The onboard experience is casual, and not totally laid-back as sometimes the boat stops in two or three ports a day.
  • All riverview suites and standard staterooms are with handcrafted UK-made Savoir beds and top-luxury bedding sets. All the Rhine Deck's cabins are with French balconies. Additional ship amenities include complimentary use of Nordic walking sticks and bicycles on all Uniworld cruises' shore excursions.
