Last week saw the opulent new 443-foot 150-berth river cruiser S.S. Maria Theresa (see portrait of her namesake in the main stairwell above), sailing on her maiden voyage through the waterways and canals of the Benelux to Antwerp before entering service between Amsterdam and Budapest for the summer. We have a look at some aspects of this vessel and her owners, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises of Los Angeles. Meanwhile, in another part of the world, Quark Expeditions has announced that the 102-berth expedition icebreaker Kapitan Khlebnikov will be returning to revenue passenger service in 2016, with a 75-day complete circumnavigation of the Arctic Ocean that can also be booked as four separate itineraries.
