River Royale is one of the few Uniworld ship's to be custom ordered and built for the company. Being one of the most technologically advanced ships on the rivers is a title that River Royale is proud to boast. Some of these advances include the ability for top deck items to automatically lower for locks and the feature of a jacuzzi tub in the rear of the ship. The jacuzzi tub serves as both a welcome relaxing spot to passengers and a technological advance that helps muffle vibrations and create an even quieter and smoother trip down the river.

River Royale allows passengers to enjoy all that the small European river towns how to offer without having to sacrifice the luxury and joy of cruising. Featuring customized free tours at every port, as well as enhanced "for-fee" tours, there will never be a lack of something to do aboard River Royale. Itineraries include cruises down the Burgundy and Provence as well as a Grand France tour. All itineraries include distinct excursions like museums, castles, wine tastings, and of course market shopping.

One of the main highlights of a River Royale cruise would have to be the food. Expertly trained chefs do their very best to bring all the flavors and aromas of the French country-side to your plate every night. Not enjoying the local cuisine? No need to worry as more traditional dishes can be custom ordered at every meal to please the palate of even the pickiest eater. And finally you cannot have luxury without wine, all meals will be expertly paired with local wine to complete the total French immersion.
