VIVALDI Ship Review
She may be another in a long-line of successful near-sister ships for CroisiEurope, but Vivaldi has a distinctive personality all her own. Launched in 2009, the 361-foot long vessel has a decidedly modern, elegant look to her public spaces and staterooms.
Dark wood accents are offset by vibrant yellows and blues throughout the vessel, giving her the appearance of a trendy boutique hotel.
A total of 88 passenger staterooms are available aboard Vivaldi. All staterooms onboard offer the same amount of space and personal amenities, with the exception of a mobility-impaired stateroom located on Middle Deck. Staterooms are small but functional, and offer enough storage space for two guests taking a weeklong journey.
Each stateroom features twin or double beds, bathroom with shower, toilet and sink/vanity area, a hairdryer, a safe and satellite television.
All staterooms on Upper Deck feature French Balconies, while staterooms on Middle Deck have fixed picture windows. Those staterooms that are located on Lower Deck have half-height windows.
VIVALDI Public Areas
CroisiEurope’s Vivaldi 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. The Restaurant has a noticeably more modern feel than some of Vivaldi’s earlier sister-ships, with trendy chairs, tables and fixtures.
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 with leather-wrapped lounge chairs.
All the way aft on Upper Deck is the Panorama Bar, a small gathering space overlooking the outdoor terrace situated on the stern of Vivaldi.
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.
