River Baroness Overview

By Jana Jones, Cruise Critic contributor
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.

The cruise on the Seine from Paris to Normandy and back to Paris was wonderful, but not what we expected. We had done the Uniworld 14-day cruise on the Rhine last year and it was thoroughly relaxing and simultaneously exciting. This cruise was ... Read more

We began on June 14 in Paris to Normandy on the River Baroness--very small cabins, but manageable--crew in total were FANTASTIC. The same goes for the food and service we received. There was an air of closeness--in a good way. We traveled with ... Read more
