MS Queen Isabel cruise ship was launched in 2013 as one of the most luxurious vessels on Douro River in Portugal. DouroAzul, Portugal's leading cruise company, owns the Isabel together with other impressive riverboats and ships. Their extremely smart coaches coordinate with the vessels for shore excursions.
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 (of which 20 Suite, in 5 grades) 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. Boat's amenities are slightly different from those available on the all Uniworld company-owned vessels. The cabins' beds, for example, are smaller. 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.
MS Queen Isabel has a Restaurant (Main dining room) and Main Lounge (featuring a full-service Bar). Other amenities include a swimming pool on the Sun deck, Serenity River Spa, fitness center, boutique and elevator. 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).
