BEETHOVEN Ship Review
The 361-foot long Beethoven entered service for CroisiEurope in 2004, and was substantially refurbished in 2010. She can accommodate up to 180 passengers in 90 staterooms and features a total of four passenger decks. She regularly sails both the Danube and Rhine rivers and features vibrant, colorful interior décor.
A total of 90 passenger staterooms are available aboard the Beethoven. All staterooms onboard offer the same amount of space and personal amenities, with the exception of a mobility-impaired stateroom located on Middle Deck.
Each stateroom features twin or double beds, bathroom with shower, toilet and sink/vanity area, a hairdryer, a safe and satellite television.
Staterooms on Upper Deck feature French Balconies; staterooms on Lower Deck have half-height windows.
BEETHOVEN Public Areas
CroisiEurope’s Beethoven features a main Restaurant located all the way forward on Main Deck. Meals are served buffet-style for breakfast, with a set menu that changes daily for lunch and dinner.
One deck up, the ship’s Main Lounge features 180-degree Panoramic windows offering views of the Danube and Rhine rivers. With a full-service bar, it’s a great place to relax and enjoy newfound company. The Lounge features plenty of seating options and boasts an attractive color palette.
All the way aft on Upper Deck is the Panorama Bar, a small gathering space overlooking the outdoor terrace situated on the stern of the Beethoven.
On the Sun Deck above, guests can admire the passing views of Europe’s most storied waterways with outdoor deck space that stretches from bow to stern.
River Cruisers Should Know!
- Electrical outlets onboard use standard two-prong, European 220V connections. North American travelers will require an adapter and/or converter to use electronics.
- There is a passenger elevator available onboard Beethoven.
- Wi-Fi and Internet connectivity are available onboard for an additional fee.
Valerie Soper says
1) On Beethoven the cabins are Cat A, Cat B and Cat C. What does this mean?
2) The passengers can embark at 6pm. What is the latest passengers can embark?
I am asking so as to work our best way to get to the port.
Looking forward to booking our cruise.

Probably best to ask CroisiEurope these questions. For the categories, you’ll need to pull up their deck plans.
