The former Vantage River Discovery built in 2006 underwent a complete refurbishment in 2009 when it was taken over by Uniworld.

The River Beatrice has a sparkling interior with a two-story lobby with glistening marble floors and a white baroque chandelier. Three decks, with a sun deck atop, the ship is spacious for a riverboat.

The main lounge is outfitted with large picture windows, a full-service bar and ample space for enrichment lectures and entertainment. Entertainment consists of local entertainers and a piano player who plays in the afternoon for tea and in the evenings for dancing. There is a dance floor in the middle of the main lounge.

Open seating allows guests to mix and mingle in the dining room with oblong tables of six along the windows and round tables in the center. Breakfast and lunch are buffets with an excellent salad bar in addition to hot entrees from the locale where the ship is visiting. Dinners are served by an attentive wait staff and wine, beer and beverages are included.

A Captain's Lounge also doubles as a fine dining alternative restaurant, library and game room. The ship has two computers and internet service is free. There is a spa, fully-equipped fitness center and free laundry room. The sun deck which runs the length of the ship has padded chairs for each guest as well as tables.

Staterooms are 150 square feet with ample closet space and drawers and have telephones, safes, climate-controlled thermostats, umbrellas, dual control outlets and bottled water.
There are 14 suites with butler service. All staterooms are the same size, but the more expensive cabins on the higher decks have French balconies. The lower decks have portholes. All rooms have flat screen televisions.

Our room was small but adequate. The marble shower in the bathroom was glass enclosed and there was excellent lighting in the room and an extra lighted mirror.

The staff was very attentive and willing to please. The ship capacity is 162. Our cruise had 112 passengers and had plenty of room for more.

This was my fourth riverboat cruise and I have to rate it as the best because of the high level of service and the excellent quality of food served. The entire staff spoke English and was very willing to please guests.

The passengers were mainly seniors but there were some younger guests and 12 of them took advantage of the free bicycles on board to ride alongside the boat between ports. A car rode alongside in the event a biker got too tired to finish the journey.
