Uniworld Boutique River Cruises will launch River Antoinette, the sister ship to the majestic River Beatrice, in March 2011 along the Rhine River. Using the same high quality décor and design standards as the River Beatrice, the new River Antoinette will be the premiere ship to sail the Rhine River on Uniworld’s popular Castles Along the Rhine itinerary.
“With the great success of the River Beatrice sailing on the Enchanting Danube, one of Uniworld’s most popular itineraries, we decided to bring an equally stunning ship to another of Uniworld’s popular itineraries, Castles Along the Rhine,” states Guy Young, president of Uniworld.
The River Antoinette will be Uniworld’s largest ship: it is 443 ft. long and 37.5 ft. wide. Uniworld is using the additional space to create extra spacious staterooms and suites for guests, so there will be a minimal capacity increase. Most of the 73 staterooms will be 196 sq. ft, and 20 staterooms will be 163 sq. ft. There will be eight junior suites measuring 294 sq. ft. and one Owner’s Suite at 391 sq. ft.
“There is no doubt in my mind that River Antoinette will be the most spectacular river cruise ship in Europe. We are very fortunate to have owners who are so invested, personally and financially, in making Uniworld the very best river cruise company,” said Young.
