VAN GOGH Ship Review
VAN GOGH Overview
Like the artist that inspired her name, CroisiEurope’s Van Gogh is easily one of the line’s most unique vessels in terms of interior décor. Vibrant colors and textures are used at every turn, turning this 361-foot long vessel into a veritable work of art in her own right.
Sailing France’s Rhone and Saone rivers, Van Gogh can carry a maximum of 105 guests and features three passenger-accessible decks: Sun Deck, Upper Deck, and Main Deck.
The ship was recently renovated in 2018, reducing the number of cabins and guest capacity, and enhancing public spaces.
VAN GOGH Staterooms
Each of the 54 cabins available aboard Van Gogh are nearly identical in size and amenities – with the exception of three single cabins.
All cabins are located on Upper Deck and Main Deck. Each stateroom includes a private bathroom with shower, toilet and sink/vanity area; a hairdryer, personal safe and a satellite television set.
Cabins on the Upper Deck feature a balcony with sliding doors, while cabins on the Main Deck feature a fixed window. All single occupancy cabins are on the Main Deck.
VAN GOGH Public Areas
Aboard Van Gogh, all public rooms are located on the ship’s Upper Deck. The main Restaurant located all the way aft serves up meals buffet-style for breakfast, with a set menu that changes daily for lunch and dinner. The Restaurant has an intimate feel and encourages a social atmosphere, with a variety of table sizes.
All the way forward on the same deck is the Main Lounge aboard the Van Gogh. The lounge features 180-degree panoramic windows that look out on the stunning scenery passing by. With a full-service bar, it’s a great place to relax and enjoy newfound company. The Lounge also features a decently sized dance floor that becomes well-used as the night wears on.
On the Sun Deck, located one deck higher, guests can admire the passing views of Europe’s most storied waterways with outdoor deck space that stretches from bow to stern.
