River Baroness Overview

The 66-stateroom River Baroness (132 passengers) is a sister ship to River Ambassador. Launched in 1997, it became the second vessel to join Uniworld. A top-to-bottom refurbishment in 2005 refreshed all of the public areas, and added new technology, hotel-style beds and DVD players. As with River Ambassador, the ship features all-outside staterooms, two passenger decks and a sun deck, open-seating dining, a small fitness center, beauty salon, library and lounge.

Cabins on the promenade level have windows that open. All cabins have shower, satellite televisions, DVD players (with movies available to borrow), direct-dial international telephone service and radios. While there are no accommodations that are designed for physically handicapped passengers, the ship does feature a deck-to-deck wheelchair lift since there is no elevator onboard.

Open-seating dining offers fine French cuisine using fresh regional ingredients, with wine available for purchase. Dress is resort casual with the exception of the Captain's Gala and other occasional "formal" events, which on this vessel means jacket and tie for men, cocktail attire for women.

All interior space on the ship is smoke free; smoking is allowed on the sun deck only.

There is an e-mail terminal from which outgoing e-mail can be sent (2.50 euros each); incoming e-mail goes to the reception desk and is printed out for the passengers.

Fares are inclusive of gratuities for onboard and onshore services, including pre- and post-cruise extensions.

Cruise went through Normandy which we had always wanted to see. The trip to the D Day beaches was very emotional and overwhelming at the same time. You actually could spend days there, but we only had the one day. Seeing the American Cemetery was ... Read more
