Maria Theresa ship's staterooms have both open-air and French balconies on decks Upper and Main. All cabins have handcrafted UK-made beds and top-luxury bedding. Additional amenities include complimentary use of Nordic walking sticks and bicycles on all Uniworld Cruises’ shore excursions. The boat's most distinctive feature is the glassed-in swimming pool.
