SS Beatrice wiki

Uniworld River Beatrice ship is one of the newer boats owned by the river cruise line. Uniworld river cruise deals attract customers mainly from North America - well-traveled and well-off Americans and Canadians.

The riverboat's godmother is Mrs Beatrice Tollman - founder and president of Red Carnation Hotel Collection.

The River Beatrice - SS Beatrice transformation in 2018 included as ship upgrades and renovations updating of all public spaces and cabins (done by design team from Red Carnation Hotels, Uniworld's sister brand / also owned by TravCorp), adding a new grand staircase in the Atrium (signature feature of all Uniworld "Super Ships"), creating new dining venues and a VIP premium lounge (replacing the old Captain’s Lounge & Library). River Beatrice's 12 suites were refreshed and remodeled. The boat's total number of cabins was reduced from 79 to 76. Some of the cabins (on Danube Deck 3) were redesigned as connecting (family) staterooms. Additionally, two Owner Suites and one Royal Suite were created. You can see all changes and compare the old and new ship features at the boat's deck plans.
