Award winning Crystal Cruise Lines launches its new river cruise yachts in July, 2016, offering a top-level river cruise vacation experience in Europe that presently isn't available. The first ship will be the 158-passengers Crystal Mozart, notable as one of the best river cruise ships in its day and that Crystal has refurbished and upgraded.
The Crystal Mozart, which will cruise on the Danube, offers spacious stateroom of 219 square feet or more, large for a river cruise ship. There will be 91 crew serving 158 guests, a much higher crew to guest ratio than usual. Dining will be open seating, with alternative dining venues onboard, 24-hour room service, plus a special Michelin-star dining experience ashore included. Like on Crystal's ocean cruises, there will be [limited] complimentary WiFi onboard.
The Mozart will be followed in 2017 by new river yachts, beginning with the 84-passenger Crystal Debussy and Crystal Ravel, cruising on the Seine, Rhone and Dordogne rivers in France; the 110-passenger Crystal Bach and Crystal Mahler, which will sail on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers.
What will distinguish these river cruise yachts from other river cruise ships are Crystal's six-star service, larger staterooms, fewer passengers per river cruise (up to 140), butler service, the fine dining Crystal is known for, and late night stays in select ports to allow guests to dine ashore at Michelin-rated restaurants. Custom tender boats will also be a means for smaller excursions during stops along the rivers. Longer itineraries permit the convenience of arrivals and departures from larger cities with significant airlift, making getting to and from the ship more convenient for guests.
In addition to longer river cruise itineraries, Crystal also plans to offer enriching shoreside adventures, including Active Exploration Adventures for passengers that look forward to more active experiences ashore, from Segway rentals to electric bikes.
Staterooms become available for sale in December, 2015. Contact a TravelStore expert to make your reservations.
