Where she sails
Uniworld's River Royale sails between March and November from the French city of Bordeaux, to the French region of the same name. Seven-night cruises travel the Garonne, Dordogne and Gironde rivers of SW France. Bordeaux is a famous food and wine area. Dine from master-chef menus, meet the wine-makers of the region, and partake of wine tasting, alongside the backdrop of châteaux and vineyards. Walk or cycle through the countryside, and explore historic French villages. This journey can be linked to a River Baroness cruise on the Seine, from Paris to the Normandy coast on the English Chanel. Another link is with S.S. Catherine in Southern France, from the Mediterranean to Lyon on the Rhône.

Life aboard River Royale
Uniworld's River Royale sails between March and November from the French city of Bordeaux, to the French region of the same name. Seven-night cruises travel the Garonne, Dordogne and Gironde rivers of SW France. Bordeaux is a famous food and wine area. Dine from master-chef menus, meet the wine-makers of the region, and partake of wine tasting, alongside the backdrop of châteaux and vineyards. Walk or cycle through the countryside, and explore historic French villages. This journey can be linked to a River Baroness cruise on the Seine, from Paris to the Normandy coast on the English Chanel. Another link is with S.S. Catherine in Southern France, from the Mediterranean to Lyon on the Rhône.

River Royale combines quality craftsmanship and the latest technical innovations. She was refurbished in 2012. Included in the cruise are all gratuities, first-class hotels (according to the cruise), all shore excursions with audio headphones, and local English-speaking guides. River Royale was named one of the world's "Top Small Cruise Ships" by Condé Nast Traveler's 2010 Readers' Poll. River Royale was named one of the "Top River Ships" in Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2013

Food and Dining
Le Bordelais Restaurant is on the middle deck, with excellent views to accompany your French-classic dining and provides open seating. Dining is acclaimed as “best-of-the-best” by observers of the river cruise industry. Breakfasts and lunches are full buffet with an extensive array of hot and cold items, and individually prepared items are available. Menu items change daily, follow the region and season, and include Continental and American preparations. Local and regional specialities are featured. Dinner is open-seating with four courses. Accompanying dinner are fine wines and a selection of beers and soft drinks.

Alternatively, dine al fresco at lunch and dinner on the Sun Deck during good weather. Menus follow the river, using fresh local ingredients and cuisines. Special dietary and vegetarian requests are catered for. Afternoon tea is served in the main lounge. All day Bistro Menu is for snacks. The specialty coffee and tea bar is open around the clock. Dining features include the Captain’s Welcome and Farewell Receptions, Welcome and Farewell Gala Dinners, and the ‘Epicurean Adventurer Program’. Uniworld received the TravelAge West Wave Award Editor’s Pick 2014 “Best Overall Cruise Line for River Cruising”.

Entertainment
The cruise focus is on exploration and walking tours with local guides. Tour variations continue to expand to meet the requests of guests: you have a choice of five ways to explore, according to your wishes. Travel lectures expand your knowledge of the regions visited, and the Epicurean Adventurer Program enhances your appreciation of local cuisine ashore. Visiting entertainers come on board along the route. A Family-Friendly program is offered during school holiday times.

Health facilities include a fitness room with jet massage shower cabin, massage room and boutique.
