Broadway on the Rhine River departs from the city of Basel, Switzerland on August 13th in partnership with Uniworld River Cruises, who were chosen by Travel & Leisure Magazine as the "World’s Best River Cruise Line" in 2016. Uniworld’s riverboat the S.S. Antoinette will be a luxurious home-base from which to explore the great cities, quaint villages and UNESCO heritage sites along our route. The ship offers many places to relax such as the sun deck filled with lounge chairs, perfect for books, enjoying the passing scenery and making new friends. Additionally, the Bar du Leopard and Restaurant de Versailles offer a variety of dining options, along with wine tastings and other special culinary programming. After dinner, the Salon du Gran Trianon will be transformed into a cabaret-style venue for intimate performances by our Broadway stars
The luxurious décor of the 443-foot, 154-passenger S.S. Antoinette—Uniworld’s first Super Ship—features fine Brazilian marble on the walls and floors, a 19th-century Venetian glass mirror, a stylish Bar du Leopard with full-service bar, and an onboard cinema. The two-story foyer boasts a 10-foot blue Strauss Baccarat chandelier with huge sapphires—a stunning piece that once hung in New York's famous Tavern on the Green—and a collection of original artwork is displayed throughout the ship.
There is a lot to like about the intelligence of the design and wonderful features of this elegant riverboat. Unlike the similarly sized ships of their competitors, Uniworld sacrificed extra cabins for beautiful public spaces that give passengers even more options for their time on the water. Another brilliant feature is the swimming pool within a glassed-in facility with gorgeous mosaic tiling, a wall of windows and an adjacent spa. The placement and purpose of this pool has an interesting story. Typically, pools are located in a ship's midsection. The designers of the S.S. Antoinette have placed the pool in the rear giving it an operational advantage as well. With the heavy weight of the materials and water, the pool creates vibration-absorbing mass that quells the normal problem of engine reverberation, thus ensuring an extra-quiet ride.
All Suites include Butler Service.
