Uniworld's S.S. Maria Theresa: Sailing to the jewels of Europe
Launched in spring 2015, Uniworld's newest Super Ship, S.S. Maria Theresa, sails along the historic Rhine, Main, and Danube rivers. A sister ship to the beautiful S.S. Antoinette and S.S. Catherine — two of the most luxurious vessels on the waterways of Europe — S.S. Maria Theresa takes guests to some of Europe's most remarkable destinations in impeccable style.
Fittingly, Uniworld’s S.S. Maria Theresa is named after the Archduchess of Austria and Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, the great Maria Theresa, who reigned from 1740 to 1780. River cruisers unpack only once and get to sail down Europe's famous rivers and dock in the heart of its fabled cities.
