Uniworld's Queen Isabel provides an up-close and unforgettable view of Portugal's Douro River Valley-a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site-renowned for its dramatic, rugged scenery and pristine waters. Named after Portugal's beloved queen, this boutique 116-passenger vessel is the most unique and stately ship on the Douro, a wonderful place to admire the region's steeply terraced hillside vineyards and charming wine estates.
The Queen Isabel features a 1,679-square-foot area equipped with solar panels on the sun deck, which generate a significant proportion of the energy used by the ship.
With Uniworld, you can always count on having the finest quality foods prepared with locally-sourced ingredients. The talented chefs also feature local, regional, and seasonal specialties made with a traditional flair.
