An Unrivaled New Fleet
Crystal is the newest kid on the river-cruise block. It is part of a huge strategic shift to add river cruises, expedition cruises, and air tours to their superlative ocean cruise line. If you love Crystal Ocean Cruises, you will love Crystal River Cruises too!
The Crystal Mozart was launched in 2016, carrying 160 guests. It is a completely overhauled renovation of an old Deilmann ship. The result won Best New River Cruise Ship from the editors of CruiseCritic. The brand-new Bach and Mahler joined the fleet in 2017, and the Ravel and Debussy are scheduled to launch in Spring, 2018. All ships sail Rhine and Danube itineraries.

Looking to claim the ultra-luxury river crown, the four new “river yachts” carry only 110 guests. All rooms are suites with balconies and butler service. Even the smallest suites are 220 sq ft, much larger than standard staterooms on other lines. They are outfitted with king-size plush beds facing Panoramic Balcony windows, two-sink bathrooms, and walk-in closets. Repeat Crystal guests will recognize the river versions of the Waterside Restaurant, the Bistro, and the Palm Court.
It wasn’t enough that they stand out as a leader on the ocean, now Crystal has exceptional all suite ships on the rivers of Europe. Included, you will find all of the beverages you need, 2 excursions per port, and the services of a butler…along with all of the amenities and services you typically find on a river cruise. The ships are designed to allow for conversation and easy camaraderie, and the dress code of “Crystal Casual” enhances the easy-going nature of this luxury experience. I haven’t had the chance to sail Crystal on the river yet – but when I do, I’m in! Current reviews – all good!
Crystal fares are very comprehensive. You’ll have unlimited beverages throughout the ship, Wi-Fi, gratuities, a 24-hour self-service pantry, airport transfers, and Crystal Adventures excursions in every port. That leaves airfare, port charges, optional excursions, spa treatments, and expensive liquor for your account.
The dress code is comfortable casual during the day and Crystal Casual in the evening. You might want jackets and cocktail dresses for special events onboard or ashore.
Guests who cruise with Crystal talk of the “Crystal Cocoon”. They never want to leave. We have every expectation the new river cruises will measure up to this high bar. Remember that the entire Crystal River Cruise fleet is only about two-thirds the capacity of the Crystal Symphony. Crystal’s loyal past guests will snatch up these scarce cruises. So, plan to book early.
