Uniworld is a river cruise line based in California but which operates over 20 boutique cruise ships that cater to select clientele exclusively in Europe. It takes an all-inclusive approach to vacations, and the River Duchess offers one of the best experiences from the line. Sailing on ten different routes through the waterways of Western and Eastern Europe, the ship which was launched in 2003 and refitted in 2012 is 360 feet long and can accommodate up to 134 guests. On board, there are 4 suites and 67 staterooms, all with french balconies.
Handcrafted beds from Savoir of England come draped in exquisite fine cotton and European duvets. The amenities to which you are accustomed at home – flat screen TVs, built-in closets, climate control, marble bathrooms and heated mirrors – are just a small sample of life on board this magnificent vessel. She is staffed by a specially-trained team, all of whom speak English. A butler service is available for all rooms. Specialists in regional history and culture lead Uniworld-exclusive excursions to the most important onshore destinations and monuments on her routes.
The on-board fitness center is equipped with some of the best exercise machines and qualified instructors are available, too. Nordic walking poles and bicycles are at your disposal for onshore use. Unlimited fine dining is accompanied by a free flow of premium liquor, and includes brands like Glenfiddich, Grey Goose and Crown Royal.
There is Wi-Fi access throughout the ship if you want to catch up with the latest happenings and a library to indulge in the classics. Spend the days and nights gazing at the beautiful European riverside vistas from the stately bar, pamper yourself in the spa or go shopping on the ship itself.
