Cabins

SS Sao Gabriel is staffed by all Portuguese crew. Sao Gabriel and her 50 staterooms (of which 4 Classic, 10 Deluxe, 20 French Balcony, 12 Suite, and 4 Grand 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 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.

Shipboard facilities

MS Sao Gabriel has a Restaurant (Main dining room) and Main Lounge (featuring a full-service Bar). Other amenities include a heated outdoor swimming pool (forward-midship on Sun Deck), Spa, Gym (fitness centre), boutique shop, office, reception, an elevator (connecting all decks). All guests are pampered with complimentary coffee bar and free Wi-Fi and Internet access. Butler service is added onboard, giving passengers the option to dine at any time they wish while enjoying the ship.

Sao Gabriel 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 cruise tour 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).
