MS Queen Isabel cruise ship was launched in 2013 as one of the most luxurious vessels on Douro River in Portugal.

Queen Isabel cruise ship, Douro River, Portugal

MS Queen Isabel ship is currently chartered by Uniworld Cruises for all sailings along the Douro. She was built in Portugal and staffed by all Portuguese crew (the only exception is her Dutch chef). Queen Isabel and her 59 staterooms are relatively small in comparison with those on other Uniworld ships. Her dimensions have been dictated by the relatively narrow and short locks which pepper the Douro River. However, the lower deck cabins have large windows. All staterooms on the upper two decks feature beautifully appointed balconies. There is also adequate storage space and good bathrooms with L'Occitane en Provence products. Other amenities include a swimming pool on the Sun deck, Serenity River Spa, fitness center and boutique. All guests are pampered with complimentary coffee bar and ffree Wi-Fi and Internet access.

Queen Isabel river cruise prices are per person and based on double occupancy. These are only indicative Uniworld Portugal cruise rates. They might be different when you book your Uniworld Douro River 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).
