This is a Nile River boat and therefore should not be compared to the larger luxury cruise ships in facilities, cabins, food and service. However, as far as a Nile River Boat goes this is an outstanding ship.This is particularly true when it comes to the suites which are wonderful. An all-suite cruise ship, the Sonesta
Star Goddess features 33 suites all with private balcony large enough for two people to sit outside. All suites are named after famous composers.
There are many electrical outlets more than I would expect and far superior to most ocean liner cabins. No problem here charging up your batteries or computer. The power is 220 volt so be sure you have dual voltage appliances.
The ship features fully-purified water, filtered and softened before distribution. However, I would still use bottled water for drinking and brushing your teeth.
All cabins are non-smoking and smoking is only allowed on the open areas (decks)

All rooms feature individually controlled air conditioning, Plasma TV, satellite channels and in-house movie programs, wireless internet connection, panoramic windows and all balcony suites, dinmer lights, pivoting TV direct-line telephone, wall mounted hairdryer, mini-bar, safe and twin or king beds as you wish your bed to be arranged.

Twenty Seven Beethoven Suites are ocated on Decks 2, 3 and 4 - 430 sq. ft with balcony. All Beethoven suites on all decks are priced the same for our group and cabin numbers are assigned once deposited.
Call and deposit early to ensure a well located suite.
On entering the cabin there is a foyer area and to the right of the foyer there is a desk for a computer or work space and a small table on the right hand side.
Then you enter the living room that features love seat, chair and coffee table and access to the outdoor balcony. The living area and bedroom area are divided by a wall unit with a flat 32" LCD TV that pivots to face either the bedroom or living room. Next to the wall unit is the opening to the bedroom (no door).
Whether the bedding is arranged as a king bed or two twins beds both options leave ample space on all sides of the beds. A lighting fixture in the shape of a star is above the bed on a dimmer switch to provide bright or subdued light. There were no kings available to photograph but the rooms do convert between twins and king beds.. Closet space is ample. Double hanging closets with some shelving. The cabinet area features four drawers, a mini bar and a safe. There is also a luggage rack with a large glass shelf for extra storage.
Four Mozart Suites Located on Decks 3 and 4 - 375 sq. ft with balcony - Same exact layout as the Beethoven suites just smaller. The living room and bedroom area is quite a bit smaller the bathroom is exactly the same. Probably a bit tight for a couple with the broken up room but perfect for a single.
Pictured below so you can see Mozart smaller living areas and smaller bedroom Mozart suite size difference. Would be a savings for a single person.
The tile and marble bathroom is a nice size with a full size bathtub/shower combination with toilet and single top mounted contemporary sink. There is not much usable storage in the bathroom. The shower head in the bathtub is adjustable. The negative in the bathroom is that they have the wall mounted hairdryer that is very ineffective so I suggest you bring your own hand held hairdryer.
Cabin Bathrooms | Beethoven and Mozart Suite Bathrooms
