Uniworld – SS Antoinette
Number of passengers: 164
As the name suggests, Antoinette’s decadent interior was inspired by 18th century France, and the style of decor on this river ship is all about opulent luxury, from the blue Strauss 10-foot Baccarat chandelier in the two-storey lobby to the flamboyant leopard-print bar on deck and the luxurious staterooms. There’s even a cinema and mosaic-tiled heated swimming pool on board.
But the atmosphere on this beautiful river ship is far from formal—guests are able to relax in the glamorous green lounge, the Salon du Grand Trianon, with a cup of tea and a book just as much as they can dress up and sample the cocktail menu, mixed in front of you by the friendly bar staff who learn your preferences straight away.
To see the sights on both sides of the river, the best viewing point is up on deck where big gold-edged fleece blankets and cosy loungers are available for guests to curl up and watch the world go by until the on-deck L’Orangerie opens for a spot of light lunch. Sample cruise An eight-day Rhine cruise starts from $2400 per person
