Uniworld revealed plans to upgrade 2 more of its river vessels to Super Ships next year, just in time for the inaugural voyage of its newly redesigned SS Beatrice. The ship set sail on Wednesday, April 4, on her maiden cruise from Budapest to Giurgiu along River Danube, with land extension in Bucharest, Romania.
SS Beatrice is complete with blue-and-white interiors. Under her new design undertaken by Red Carnation Hotels, the vessel features yacht-style light wood finishes, plush furnishings, marble floors and original artwork.
As the first Uniworld vessel to be upgraded to Super Ship, the interior of SS Beatrice also features a renovated lobby with elegant mirrors, white Murano chandelier with blue shades, a grand nickel and black iron staircase – a signature element of the Super Ships.
The redesigned lounge boasts chairs and sofas with hand-made upholstery, upholstered ceiling panels, parquet floor, solar shades, and new USB ports. The artwork throughout includes pieces from Alexander Calder, Pino Signoretto and Pablo Picasso.
SS Beatrice offers 4 dining options, inspired by renowned Austrian composers, such as Mozart’s, the main restaurant; Wolfgang’s bar & lounge; and the new Max’s and Schubert’s. For passengers looking for immersive culinary experiences onboard SS Beatrice, Max’s restaurant features intimate cooking classes where travelers can create local European cuisines along with the chef. The 18-seat cafe Schubert’s, located at the bow of the vessel offers shared plates from lunch through dinner.
Additionally, the vessel now features new staterooms - two Owner Suites (measuring 310 square feet each) and two 390 square foot Royal Suites. Also added are new connecting staterooms, best for friends and families sailing together.
SS Beatrice sails on 6 itineraries to destinations including Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria.
