Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has revealed the design of its newest Super Ship, the S.S. Maria Theresa, launching March 26.

Touted as the line’s “most ambitious ship to date,” the ship’s designers took inspiration from the Baroque period to create a design that will transport guests back in time, while pampering them with the latest comfort and technology.

Elements of the design include a three-tiered lobby with a sweeping marble staircase and glittering glass chandelier, a 10-foot high original oil of the ship’s namesake ruler, mirrored or silk-clad walls, antique wood paneling, and custom furniture pieces.

Public areas onboard the ship include the Habsburg Salon, with a collection of hand-picked antiques and inspirational paintings; the Viennese Cafe, serving classic Austrian fare; the 10-seat Lipizzan Cinema; Uniworld’s signature Leopard Bar; and more.

Maria Theresa will accommodate a maximum of 150 guests in 64 elegant staterooms, 10 suites, and one Royal Suite. The ship will be christened in Amsterdam on March 26.
